Looks like Cho/Jordan are not going to tank, on purpose that is lol.


True..even if they signed the Al Jefferson or whoever the Hornets still should be a good bet to be bottom 5 team..be justified we would get the number 1 pick and be the 11th worst team.

Tanking makes sense next season..not this..there are 5 potential Franchise guys next season and zero this.

If we trade it should be to load up on picks in 2014.

I like Derrick Williams so the Minny trade would be cool.

Deandre Jordan would be a crippling move. To trade assets to get him and tie up the cap would just be all style and zero Substance for a role player.

Last year, with exception of Anthony Davis, everyone was saying the same thing about this year's draft... tank for next year so that we can get Cody Zeller or Shabazz Muhammed...

 

look where they have slipped now.

One thing we can be clear on...unless the Horncats buy a team this off-season to become a playoff team, they won't have to "tank".  They're still going to be bad. It's just a matter of how bad.  

 

Adding Pek, as long as they keep their own 1st rounder next year, could be a nice move.  They still should be among one the hand-full of worst teams in the league and net a Top 5-6 pick in 2014.

 

Add Wiggins, Parker, Randle, etc. to a nucleus of Kemba, MKG, and Pek and they're on the path to contending.

Those rumors suck. I'd do #4 for DW and #9. Everything else mentioned is horrible.  I worry if the Horcats are set on a big they end up reaching for Cody at #4. I can see Len and Noel being taken in the top 3 and that happening. Uggh... The only chance in really getting better is to luck out in the draft. We will never win anything taking other teams cast offs and no game changing players will sign with Charlotte. Tanking is the only choice.

theres no reason to tank this season.  Even if Charlotte does well and forfeits their pick to chicago, they more than likely will receive another, portlands or detroits pick.

Tanking doesn't fuging work, we have been taking since the Bobcats came to town. Learn to sports.

 

Nope, the bobcats didnt tank until they traded Wallace and Jackson in 2011.  They should have though

I would take Pek in a heartbeat as well.  Im all for getting young players that will continue to get better.

I think he means we've been a bad team for a while and getting a high pick and using that pick correctly is all chance.

If the 2014 draft really is like the 2003 draft that produced Lebron, Carmelo, Chris Bosh, and D-Wade. You'd be an idiot to not want the team to tank. The team is wanting a star player REALLY bad and their way to get one is sitting right in front of them.
