hmmm...wonder if that will

hmmm...wonder if that will change their draft decision. maybe dario saric makes more sense than a spot up shooter.

They drafted Cody Zeller last year so its covered

They drafted Cody Zeller last year. He didn't get much playing time this recent year, but I'm sure he's more than capable of filling for McRoberts. I still expect the Hornets to go after a SF or SG with the 9th pick and the other with 24th pick. Right now I have a SG at 9 and a SF at 24.

The dude is going to get a relatively nice pay day from someone. He had a nice season, then stepped up his game even more in the playoffs. He's an underrated athlete, and not to many big men can shoot and also pass like this guy.

If he signed a low deal for the Heat, he'd be a great back up big

The Heat really need him or another big with Birdman opting out.

Still possible that the Hornets can resign him for a long term deal, depends on the draft and how they fill about Zeller

No surprise here, he had a very good season. Charlotte has a lot of cap space and probably makes the best option for him, because while he could help some good teams (Miami, as someone mentioned before), they are not likely to give him a lot of money. Some bad teams might give him more than what Charlotte can offer, but not much. In the end the Hornets can offer him more money than what he was getting on his current deal and they're somehow a competitive team.

He can fit anywhere. Perfect

He can fit anywhere. Perfect for Spurs offense or the Hawks. Dark horse, the Rockets. If they miss out on a max player they can still ship off Asik and sign McRoberts. He'll be great next to Howard.

I like bothth ose fits

also Sacramento comes to mind as well. He spreads the floor, leaving less doubles on Demarcus.

Just

Just curious, but everyone keeps talking about Cody Zeller as the replacement. Am I the only person that is not that high on him? I believe the last time I saw him he was struggling to score on college players. His playing time last year doesn't account for my opinion since he was a rookie on a playoff team, but again he was also a rookie on the 8th seed in the East and could not get off the bench.

He struggled a lot in the first two months but played very well after that. Very good in february/march and the Bobcats/Hornets were trying to win games, so it's not the usual rookie putting up big numbers for teams tanking. It didn't help him the fact that Charlotte was a slow pace team, not allowing him to display his best attribute, his speed running the floor. By the way, in college he was mostly a back to the basket player. With Big Al no one is asking him that. I don't think he'll ever be a great low post scorer, but if he develops his jumper and defensive awareness he could become a very good starter for many years.
