why not?...is this guy another bridges?

I think he's a "safe" pick. I'm exhausted of undersized PF's. So, hell no. We need a boom or bust player, and Ball is sadly that. Hornets have gone safe pick the last however many drafts. I'm exhausted of it.

What about toppin from Dayton....that kid can flat out shoot

He is great offensively no question. If we got him I would be fine.  Heels fan here and I am not being homer whatsoever but people are ignoring Cole Anthony somewhat here.  Dude can flat out fill it up.  He is going to make a team look like geniuses.

was always wondering if we could package our two 2nd round picks and move back up to get him.. but he seems to be rising into the late-mid lottery and out of reach of us hoping back up.. I don't see us trading down unless Edwards and Wiseman are gone at #3 - and in that case, I'd still be fine with taking Okongwu..

Cole would fill a position of need as a backup PG.. especially if we trade away Rozier for something.. idk, so many options and things moving around now..

I don't see it with Okongwu. His game reminds me way too much of Bismacks game. 

tbh, I don't see the similarity.. Biz was an old school 90s Big that would be exposed on the perimeter by guards and was just in there for rebounding and shot blocking.. Okongwu actually has post moves that Biz never developed and agility to defend on perimeter.. oh and he can catch a pass without bobbling it.. EVERY.. FUGGIN.. TIME..

ughhhh - can you tell my frustration with Biz?? He was a nice, great dude to have in locker room but so glad he is gone..

Same. I couldn't stand him. Reminds me of the enigma that is Teddy B. Sigh.

Not sure why so many are down on Ball here, he has star potential. His loud mouth dad shouldn’t deter us from drafting him.

I actually love Okongwu at 3.  This guy has some Chris Webber to his game especially if he improves the outside range.  He is a great defender right away as well.  He is ascending bigtime and could absolutely end up being better than Wiseman.

I’m a fan of Cole. Hope that we could make a move to get him.

I think that Ball is already a “star” with potential at basketball. I don’t see the star potential on the court. His game is no different than Lonzo.

I would like Okongwu as a PF if we could get Evan Mobley next year. I just don’t like trying to make Okongwu the next Bam 2.0 at center.

I love Bridges. I love Toppin. If we didn’t already have Bridges and PJ, I would easily take Toppin at 3 over Ball.
