Trade with Minny for Williams, 9, and 26. Zeller at 9 if he is still available.

I think we take Oladipo then trade him to someone. We could trade the pick straight but it could take a while to work out so we have to take him.

I haven't really seen that happen since the BuzzCats traded Branden Wright to Golden State for Jason Richardson, but it's definitely an option.

I don't think Len will be there and while I like Bennet's skill set I'm not sure he really fits in with Charlotte unless they pull off a trade for a bigger Center. I'm not sure they go any other direction but SG or a big man and the only really other options for a big would be Zeller and Noel. Noel probably won't play a game next season and that's a tough pill to swallow for a team to pay a rookie 3-4 million for nothing in return at all. While Zeller has a game that likely see's him as a borderline 10-10-1 guy, I'm not sure it's worth using the 4th pick in the draft for. 

 

If the team runs a more uptempo style then all three make a ton of sense at the 4th pick. I think Zeller gets the nod because of him being a big man that would be able to run the floor and keep up with a fast uptempo game plan plus be able to operate out of a half court set in the low or high post. 

 

 

So I go with Zeller with the rumors of Cho liking him at the fourth spot. 

 

 

No I don't think McLemore is even in discussion for the pick with his bad workouts and him being out of shape at the combine and draft workouts. If Len is there, he's probably the pick.

Zeller is 7'0 with a 6'10 wingspan, I think he has the skill to be a NBA Center but not the arms to be a NBA Center, hope I'm wrong..

if the Bobcats want to take a huge risk on someone like Cody Zeller. Trade down to the middle of the draft and take Rudy Gobert. he is 7'3 and would have the longest wingspan, nearly 8 feet and the longest standing reach at 9'7. Both will be NBA records.

I was thinking about it, and if we are in talks with the Wolves (who want Oladipo), that pretty much means we aren't interested in him.

 

He also never came in for a workout.

 

To be honest, I think the pick is down to Len, Bennett, or Zeller.

 

Good point, although I have to wonder if maybe we do like Oladipo but like whatever the Wolves are offering more - something like Pekovic + both their first rounders?

I mentioned this in another thread somewhere but, he is the big I'm most intrigued by.  When people have brought up Len, this is the guy I look at and say, "if you're gonna take a risk on a boom/bust big, I'd rather have Gobert over Len."  I remember watching the combine and they said he blew everyone away there with his ability and measurables.

F Ajinca, lol.  Nah, Gobert wowed the scouts at the combine. 

 

Ajinca was a bum from day one.  I didn't even remember hearing his name until the day of the draft and many analysts being surprised we traded for that pick to get him.  I don't ever remember there being a "wow factor" over Ajinca.  He was almost up there with Brezec as being my most disliked player in franchise history.  I was so mad we wasted a pick on him from the moment we got him.

I hated Ajinca, it's like he didn't even try... I mean seriously, you are seven feet plus... why can't you rebound or dunk?

Manute Bol was 7'7 and he couldn't rebound very well.

LOL exactly.  Look, I get that most bigs nowadays tend to play away from the basket, but if you're going to be that kind of big, at least be good at it.  He epitomized soft.

Does anyone remember the guy Kenny George who played for UNC Asheville, he was 7'9. I wonder how he would have translated to the NBA. Too bad he had his foot removed.
