Uggggh...

We needed a NBA big, not a Plumtree.  Smh...

He is a decent player so gives us flexibility in this draft…2 years on his deal at 8 mill per.  We aren’t done at center.

Took on salary for 37 which could be an interesting pick with the depth in this draft

He is basically replacing Cody Zeller for much cheaper and we upgraded our second round pick in the process. 
 

Still not used to the Hornets making smart moves like this.

Yeah and he's an upgrade to Zeller while being cheaper. Granted not by huge amounts, although he's infinitely more athletic, but still an upgrade.

Best part of the trade is the 2nd round pick move up.. Plummlee is a cheap backup so it doesn't hurt us..

I know you like Barnes but more than Jalen Suggs?  Amazed with that pick.  Suggs to me will be an all star.  Suggs is a complete player.

I came around on this move.  Mitch was next level all day yesterday.  That draft cemented the turnaround.  Plumlee, to his credit, had a really good season last year and made some impressive plays, and he has always by far been the best among those brothers...  I just didn't like adding salary when taking on a big who still can't space the floor or do much on the perimeter defensively, but he is indeed much better than the centers we've played for the last few years.  He is efficient at what he does, and if we can somehow get Kai as the starter sooner than later and Plumlee coming in as the backup, this was incredible.

Like many I was cool with Kai at 11 so this is awesome. They got him, solid vet in Plumlee to bring him along, and another lottery player in Bouknight. Charlotte pro sports are in a golden age of drafting.

Really underrated move. Perhaps Charlotte could've found a better opportunity to take on salary for a better asset BUT Plumlee is a useful rotational big. 

Moving up to pick 37 from 57 was sweet. JT Thor is a nice young upside play too. 

If Plumlee is the starting center...this deal is less fun. Based on our draft, cap and roster spots, it's highly possible Charlotte is done adding bigs.
