Wolves just traded #18 to Houston for Chase Budinger. The Cavs may make the move up to #2 if they love Bradley Beal but I doubt they would use the #24 pick and would only be willing to give up picks 33 and 34.
You all know that "Jordan Rules" and he will make his staff select Harrison Barnes from UNC. Nobody will cross him as he will fire them due to his ego. I'd trade down and get as many players as possible because they certainly need to flush the system of what they had last year--canning Bernie was a good first step. I don't know a thing about Dunlap, but his reputation as a teacher is good enough of a resume for me.
That is why they are the Bobcats. You never trade down in a draft for a bunch of low round draft picks, even in a weaker draft. This is not the NFL. After the first few picks, traditionally first round picks are not that valuable. Sure there are exceptions in history, but the NBA is always about the absolute top picks. It works fine in the NFL where a 3rd round pick is a starter, but the NBA only has a limited group of players who succeed in each draft.
is it just me or is this the worst NBA draft in years as far as the top picks are concerned? the only 1 i like is gilchrist. i think davis will be a bust. i dunno how davis will be able to hang in the post w/ the likes of lebron or griffin (etc.). robinson is a good player but not a #2 overall pick. sullinger has been medically red-flagged and trading down would be a great idea for the bobcats!
QueensWin - The reports are all over Twitter from Chad Ford and DraftExpress.com. Apparantly the Rockets are making a move to try and get #5 from the Kings and now they have picks 14, 16, and 18 to use.
Bobcats need more than one player to turn it around. None of the players coming out are a game changer like LeBron was. Trade down and get more picks. Do your homework and draft smart and maybe get a few free agents in the process.
99 Rams - This is said to be one of the deepest drafts compared to recent years. There may not be many sure fire super stars but many of the top 10 picks have All-Star potential and compared to last year this draft is very impressive. Last year Derrick Williams and Enes Kanter were picked 2nd and 3rd and both didn't do much of anything as rookies.
