Thor and Kia both need more strength. I think Thor could be a 3-D player. If Kia could reach say Jaxson Hayes level that would be a win for the organization. Bouknight is the mystery to me. If the Hornets select the  kid form Kansas what will happen to him?...The new coach will determine alot..

Oh no I think Kia could be way better then Jaxson Hayes..

Shooting for Jaxon level is a mistake and selling him short... When KiA  already a more skillful player ..

And if we're lucky the draft picks or 1 pick can be used in a deal to get a veteran big or get rid of Haywards contract..

Boukight needs to be developed he is way to talented to give up on now..

While I agree Bouknight is talented I thought Durate or Moses Moody should have been the pick. The Hornets need positional size. We already have a undersized shooting guard in Rozier. Like it's been stated on the fourm numerous times I get Monk 2.0 vibes from him. I hope I'm wrong. One of those 1st round picks should be for a vet. IMO the Hornets don't need to get too much younger. I would love to see Malcom Brogdon on this team.  A true pro. His affect would be similar to CJ McCollum with the Pelicans

Boukight is 6'5 that is perfect size for a modern SG..

Duarte is only a inch taller..

While his stats say he 6"5 he looked smallish when he was on the court. Boukinght is a talent no doubt that. I hope my feelings about him change. It won't be the first time I was wrong. I think Thor and Kai is more of what we need. Nice long athletic players with a chance to help us improve defensively

Bouknight is 6'4", Moody and Duarte are 6'5". Not much of a difference there. Monk is 6'3".

Great thread. The commom denominator  between all of them is probably strength then shooting. Bouknight is just a better 3pt shooter away from being the opposing teams nightmare in the league every night. Thor can be a really good 3 and D guy as well.
