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.

Joel Embiid would fit in well with Biyombo as overhyped lottery picks not worth where they were chosen.

You guys aren't watching the Bobcats games if you still think we are still a bottom 5 or 6 team in the league and going to get a good draft pick. Only way we get a top 6 pick is if we win the draft lottery which has never been favorable to Charlotte. We are looking like a playoff bound team or a late lottery selection right now. 14 games into the season and we are sitting at the 6th seed in the East. If the draft was tomorrow we would be picking 15th or 16th, which then would force us to give our pick to the Bulls to finalize the old Tyrus Thomas trade. The only bright side is we will be receiving the Blazers pick this year for the Gerald Wallace trade but that will be somewhere even later in the 20's.

Temper your expectations for an early lottery pick because you will only end up pissed off starting another stupid thread. Enjoy the season, we have a playoff caliber team with 3 starters under the age of 23 (2 of them under 20), and enough cap space to make another Al Jefferson type of move next offseason when Ben Gordon gets off the books. We will be contending for the 4 & 5 seed in one or 2 seasons and that should be plenty to be grateful for given the garbage teams we have had since the Bobcats started up.
