Looks like Cats will be a just under. 500 team. That won't get any of the top four guys

Again I say...Joel Embiid. This guy is going to be a star. Let him learn a few post moves from Big Al for a couple years and I think he will be the future of the NBA at C. He has tremendous touch around the rim, great bball IQ, is extremely fluid, and an already advanced offensive arsenal for his age. All this while only playing basketball for 2 years!

When we need a shooter why the hell would we pick a C? We just invested $43 million into a C.

None of the SG's can shoot. I'd prefer a guy like Embiid and Nik Stauskas or Doug McDermott. Plus, you don't pass on a potential (key word) superstar C because you have a soon-to-be 30 year old C who is having problems staying on the court right now who is on a 2/3 year contract.

 

Not to mention he helps our transition offense because he is a phenomenal outlet passer.

This times a 1,000. Al Jefferson isn't even an All-Star level guy in the league. He's a Top 40 or so player who has battled injuries, can't play defense, and is only here a couple of years tops...because we overpaid him. We won't pass on BPA and reach on a guy like Wayne Selden when an Embiid is still on the board because we need a shooter. They can be found for cheap in FA.

Lets just trade Jefferson for Noel and tank it out seriously. Think about a debut year as the hornets with wiggins and noel

I hate Duke as much as the next UNC fan, but Parker is a flat out stud.  I like him the most out of these big 3.

 

Wiggins has all the potential in the world, but he is almost too ambivalent.  He doesn't have that killer take over instinct yet.

 

Doesn't mean he can't develop that.  I felt the same way about Lebron when he came out, and now he is as clutch as anyone, and is not afraid to just put the team on his back and will a team to victory.

Wiggins also can't shoot or dribble. Even before he started playing at Kansas I didn't see what everyone else saw in him. Besides his obvious athleticism. But that's it.
