A WHOLE PIE!

Mac Attack interviewed Rich Cho... highlights below:

 

- Not shopping MKG, they have gotten a lot of calls on a few players and listen to all offers, but like MKG and aren't shopping him as reports indicated.  Also indicated that the teams rumored, they have had no discussions with. (He basically debunked the MKG rumors)

 

- Asked if the Bobcats would stay at 4, Cho laughed and said #4 is a popular pick.  Said they are looking at moving up, moving down, trading for future picks, young players... said they are exploring absolutely all options.  He didn't show any cards...

 

- Asked about Anthony Bennett... Cho gave a vanilla answer not indicating where he would be on the Bobcats draftboard....good answer.

 

- Asked about free agency, he said they are open to signing a big free agent but the last thing they are going to do is sign a bad contract just to bring a guy in.

 

- Asked about Dunlap firing after just one year, he said they didn't realize that he wasn't a good fit until he got the job.

 

- Asked about trading into the 2nd round with no picks currently.  Cho said they are looking for another 1st round pick as well as adding an additional 2nd round pick.

 

- Cho indicated that MKG asked for a shooting coach, they brought in a lot of guys and Mark Price has a previous relationship with Clifford and was comfortable with MKG.

 

- Asked who makes the call on the draft picks, Cho said, it is a collaborative decision between 7 scouts, Rod, Rich, & MJ

 

- Asked about Biyombo after seeing him for a couple of seasons, Cho said they haven't lost any faith in Biz, he was 10th in the league in blocks, his work ethic is off the charts and he thinks that he is going to be a better player next season for sure.

 

- Asking about the feedback from Bobcats to Hornets, Cho said he didn't realize how big a deal it would be for Charlotte until after the change was announced and said the feedback has been unbelieveable.

I'd like to point out that it wouldn't make sense to bring in a shooting coach specifically for MKG, and then shop him.  No need to hold onto your butts...

Thanks for the recap.

 

Love that he says no bad contract just to bring in a guy.  Really love that MKG asked for a shooting coach to be brought in.

They said that they brought in a few shooting coaches almost as a try-out.

Also with the Price coaching hire..he was excited that he would help Kemba off of pick and rolls which was Price's specialty in the NBA with Brad Daughtry.

Also In regards to Olaidipo he said " he will be a good player somewhere" May have shown cards there.

Tenders to Gerald Henderson and Mullens will be decided on immediately after the draft.


Later the reporter(cant remember the name at the moment) who broke the (MKG being shopped) news held firm to his multiple sources and said the trade involved a future first and a player which Barnes is in the discussion. The Bucks, Celtics, Hawks all offer multiple picks and a player.

Said that the Tyrus Thomas draft pick to the Bulls becomes unprotected in 2016 looms large in this decision. Signs point to the Wizs drafting Bennett which will have the Hornets draft Otto Porter ....MKG will be flipped for assets to offset the lost pick to the Bulls and gain players. According to him.

Makes sense now.

Thanks for the update.

 

 

If I was a betting man, I would say the pick will be Len, McLemore, Bennett, or Noel.

 

Yeah, I know I just listed four of the top five or six players in the draft lol.

I'm thinking Bobcats draftboard top 4 are:

 

1. Noel

2. Bennett

3. Porter

4. Len

 

I think if McLemore is available that we pass on him.  His stock has been dropping ever since the season ended and has had more than one bad review on team workouts.

I wouldn't doubt that there have been talks with BuzzCats receiving calls for MKG, but that's different then adamantly shopping a player and calling other teams to try and get a deal done.

Very true Rick!

I would hate to give up on MKG but even in an interview with Wally Sczerbiack he was bery cautious on being able to fix MKG's jumper anytime soon.

don't know- Cho said he wanted a 2nd 1st rounder and a 2nd round draft choice..

 

maybe we do move back with the Timberwolves for #9 and #26 and get D.Williams

 

by tomorrow night we could have

Derrick Williams

Zeller at #9

Bullock/Crabbe at #26

 

 

 

Kemba/Sessions

Hendo/Gordon/Bullock

MKG/Taylor

Williams/Zeller

Biz/McBob

Don't hate on the Bully, every team needs that three point threat off the bench.

He has also been rising. DX has him all the way up to 19 in their mock draft.
