Hornets draft

The Charlotte Hornets are in a real intersting situation come draft time thos year. Assuming Henderson doesnt opt out, they have a starting 5 that is set for next year

PG: Kemba, Brian Roberts

SG: Henderson

SF: MKG, Marvin Williams

PF: Zeller, Vonleh

C: Biz (played great this year, Al opts out..),

I really want the to pursue Welsey Matthews in FA, as he is a perfect fit with this team.

So when it comes to the draft we have no immediate needs...

Some prospects i like assuming our pick is from 12-16

1. Devin Booker- Kid is a offensive juggernaunt with a klay thompson build and style of play

2. Myles Turner- Great all around Center, doubt he falls

3. Hezonja

4. Winslow

5. Grant

6. Tyus Jones

what do you guys think? Booker and Kemba could be a nasty backcourt, with an excellent defensive frontcourt to match.

I think the glaring need for

I think the glaring need for Charlotte is perimeter shooting. Looking at the list of guys you included for a potential lineup next year there are not nearly enough shooters to keep a defense honest.

Booker, Hezonja, Oubre- All three who I dont think will be available come that 12-16 range but a guy who likely will be available is Justin Anderson. He's a big strong kid can shoot it and will get after it defensively. He would be a good fit on just about any team.

If youre willing to be a bit patient another intriguing kid is LaVert from Michigan- the 12-16 range might be a bit of a reach for him not knowing how his injury is doing and all.

The Hornets badly need

The Hornets badly need outside shooting. Of those first four you listed, only Booker will be available, IMO, and should be pounced on.

AT this point I would draft

AT this point I would draft the best talent I would Say Willie even tho we have interior presence already, but you can never have to many big men. Jerian Grant would def help and booker

i think they are in a tough

i think they are in a tough spot. i would agree they need perimeter shooting but i also think with hairston, stephenson and henderson; they shouldn't add another sg but focus on sf or even pg. i'd be targeting jerian grant or justin anderson. guys that are versatile, athletic and can shoot.

I think RJ Hunter and Jake Layman will eventually move up the boards as well. They could work in Charlotte.
