I know the Cats/Hornets seem to constantly ignore the center or power forward position, but I feel like Oladipo would be a nice pick.

 

With Kemba, Oladipo and MKG, you have a young, athletic, defensive backcourt that could attract the eyes of a free agent

 

I feel we could get a solid big man in free agency and Dipo has the athletic ability to guard a great perimeter player, and plays above the rim

Yes please. He is the guy I've been wanting since January. He is going to surprise a LOT of people with his offensive abilities. He didn't need to score a ton at Indiana but showed he could when he was needed to score in the crunch time. And everyone knows about his defense.

Oladipo is my top hope now as well. He's the safest pick in the draft.

I'd love it.  Add Jabari next year to play the 4, sign or draft a Center and the Hornets can take the court with one hell of a young core.

I wanted him even before we got #4. Him, Kemba, and MKG would be nasty in the open court.

Pick up a big man in free agency, and I'd like this move. Scoring has been a major problem for us these past few years, and he would no doubt help in that department. Plus, he's a great defender as well.

Oladipo is on my list of yes I'd take him. I know flash and scoring is nice but man having a great D will be fun too. I'm just wanting to see if he can truly surpass Hendo! The problem I see with taking him is what can he do that Hendo can't and how can he improve our team in the win column.

What's Oladipo potential? Superstar or role player?

How does he help our rebounding and points in the paint problem?

I personally believe he could become a superstar. At the very least, I think he will be a top 5 SG in the league.

How does he help our rebounding and points in the paint problem?

 

Well, he's not a big man, but those are the two things he does best (outside of defense of course).

Choosing between those two, definitely role player. I just dont see him being a legit scorer down the road. top defender, Yes.
