Charlotte is shopping SF Michael Kidd-Gilchrist. He could be a perfect fit for the Pistons

The Charlotte Bobcats have been shopping Michael Kidd-Gilchrist. Potential that he is moved on draft night.

FWIW

 

Davis Williams @DayvisWilliams
Someone who'd know about the MKG report, told me "no way in hell". Said Clifford looks at MKG as a "blank canvas" he wants to work with.

not buying it, don't see the point. We probably have fielded calls for him but unless we get an amazing deal I just don't think so

Lol, hold on to your butts is an understatement. Giving up on last years second overall pick would just set us back even further.

I'm not sure what to make of it as only one source is reporting it. Maybe it's just a news source trying to throw poo at the wall and see if it sticks.

Doubt this happens.  It's too early to bail on MKG.  Dunlap didn't play him enough and I think the potential is too great.   Who would they trade to us (Pistons)?  Monroe?  Drummond?  Those are the only ones I'd be interested in.

Yeah can't imagine the Pistons having anything to give us.  We'd have to give up a lot more than MKG to get Monroe or Drummond I would think. 

 

Probably nothing to see, but it wouldn't be unheard of to deal him.  Weren't the Wolves shopping D-Will (fellow #2 pick) last year at the draft?

I personally value MKG on the same level as Monroe and Drummond because I don't really think we got to see the real MKG.

There was a report that came out from Steve Martin (the Bobcats drunk play by play announcer) that MKG had called Coach Cal multiple times saying that he made a huge mistake leaving UK after one year.

This leads me to believe that MKG wasn't comfortable here last year (which would affect hisbplay) and I attribute that uncomfortability to Dunlap who clearly showed he was not a players coach.

I actually think that MKG has all the tools to be a very good three, very similar to what Gerald Wallace was for us for the longest time.

For what it's worth, the Bobcats beat writer for the Observer (Rick Bonnell) said he would be "shocked" if we traded MKG.

I would listen to trade talk on him. Would have to be a great offer though. People forget how young he is.

I would take Monroe over MKG every day of the week because it's way harder to find a good big man than a slashing SF.  I know he has potential and Dunlap was, well, Dunlap, but we need a big.

 

That being said this probably isn't even happening and they wouldn't give up Monroe I don't think.  I wouldn't believe this really but, anything could happen.

I read that the Horcats are determined to get a big. What does that mean...maybe they are shopping MKG for a big and they are set on taking Bennett or Porter if he falls to replace MKG.

I will say that acquiring Monroe and selecting Porter (if he fell) would be a sweet deal.

Otto has the potential to be the best player in this draft class if he puts it together.

100% depends on what we would get back.  Nobody in this league is untradable.

 

I do like MKG, but if he netted us another young player and another lottery pick, then you'd be stupid not to consider.
