(rumors) Charlotte Bobcats - Clevland Cavs

Recommended Posts

The Bobcats brought in Dunlap to develop younger players, so why would they be concerned with a lot of rookies? Just because it's unconventional?

I'm going to be pissed if Washington ends up picking Barnes. Then I'm going to select Washington as one of the whose games I always get to see instead of the Bobcats.

Barnes is coming up on ESPN Draft Special if you are near a TV.

Answering questions from Skip Bayless, Chad Ford, and Stephen A. Smith.

Wait what?

How so?

Next year is a top 12 protected pick if we finish outside of the top 12. Chicago gets out 1st round pick.

Forgot about that

But at least we still have the chance to get a pick from Portland.

Barnes Interview

  • Barnes said he would enjoy staying home and playing for the Bobcats, also said he would like to play with Kyrie.
  • Stephen A asked if he would like to play for the "woeful" Bobcats, Barnes replied I would love to be the 2nd pick in the draft.
  • Said that he can create his own shot, and wants to play with an up-tempo team.
  • Asked if he was just a product of Roy William's system- he danced around the question saying that he scored 17 points per game, he can create his own shot just fine. (Skip doesn't seem to think he was a product of Roy William's System)
  • Also said he continuously works on his ball handling skills as basketball is his life.
  • Said his best asset is his 3 point shot and pull up jumper.
  • Said he was a huge Jordan fan to say the least.
  • Wanted to go up against the best during workouts, wanted to go against MKG (didn't get the chance to); however he did get to go up against Beal.
  • He's been working on putting the ball on the floor and his post game.
  • Said his motor is fine and doesn't understand the criticism for it.
  • Stephen A thinks Barnes can be a 17 to 20 points per game player and a two or three time NBA All Star but doesn't think he will be a superstar.
  • Skip Bayless thinks he will be a Luol Deng or Danny Green type of player.

Finally a good segment on ESPN.

Steals of the Draft

Chad Ford: Draymond Green

Skip Bayless: J'Covan Brown (Chad said Brown measured with the highest fat content at the NBA combine)

Biggest Potential Bust

Chad Ford: Austin Rivers

Skip Bayless: Tyler Zeller

Zeller being the biggest bust? That's just dumb. He is what he is, no gamble at all. A 7fter who can run the court and has a good 13ft jumper.

That's all that free agency is this year, just second tier guys.

However, there are still some solid players out there like Carl Landry, Ryan Anderson, Nick Batum, Jeff Green, Michael Beasley, J.R. Smith, Courtney Lee, Nick Young, O.J. Mayo, Ramon Sessions, Nate Robinson, Aaron Brooks, Raymond Felton, and Lou Williams.

Then out of our league: Deron Williams, Eric Gordon, and Roy Hibbert

i would look to beasley, young, mayo and lou williams. they would be the 4 choices for me. but all will still look for too much money.

young wants 9mill got offered 7 by wizz and declined (why they traded him) but i think he can be a 20ppg scorer in this league

williams is also a guy i really like, can really score. but he is very comparable to kemba in abilities and i would like a backup PG that can pass and set others up better. hear he wants at least 7 mill and thats too much for my taste.

idk what it would take for mayo or beasley, but either would come in and give us a solid scoring threat. i wouldnt pay over 7 mill for either of them. But for around 7 i would be interested depending on what/who we draft.

i also like jamison, he wants to play here and would be a good fit. hope we do sign him.

I would not mind paying around 8-9 mil for Mayo. He's def a guy who could be huge for a team like us. He has tremendous talents and abilities. He was pretty much overshadowed by the few other stars they had there in Memphis.

Also he would fill a position for us. If we could attract a guy like Mayo to come play here for that amount and draft a T-rob with the addition of Ben Gordon, all of a sudden we starting to look pretty good for the future.

All I know is, if we trade with Cleveland we better be certain were going to get Barnes. I don't wanna be stuck with Robinson or MKG, and seeing that we just traded Corey, it's likely we'd end up with MKG. I'm not cool with that lol

    • same barriers apply for means tested debt forgiveness that apply for voter id. “oh they don’t have a computer? oh they can’t just drive? they can’t just fill out a form???” no reason at all to be this way. it doesn’t save money and creates real hurdles that will only impact the poor and disabled. it’s a trojan horse (much like your candidate elizabeth warren)
    • means testing policies are by majority weaker and more susceptible to political sabotage. Universal programs that would effect everyone dont create a divide. Also means testing fails regularly already  
    • Karl Joseph would be super interesting.  Have always loved him, was a bit banged up this past year but the Raiders have some talent at S.  He could be expendable.  Stefen Wisniewski is my target for LG. Starter on the Eagles SB team and brought in at a backup/emergency starter capacity for KC.  Should be a reasonable contract and a considerable upgrade over GVR.  Levi Wallace at CB could also be a very low key but CB1 type get.  Only 24 and was really good for Buffalo.  They may need to allocate $$ elsewhere and he could be a great target. DJ Reader seems like the obvious nose tackle people will mention and we should likely target but there's 2 DTs high in the draft we appear to be eyeing.  That's a wildcard. Long shot.... If Olsen is indeed gone, that will be an additional $8.5 million in savings.  The market value for Hunter Henry is around $9 mil/year so I wonder if we would be willing to lock a 25 year old like him up long term at 10-11 mil/year? We have needs elsewhere but he could be a nice long term fit with CMC and Moore.
