Jul 04 2018 02:22 PM | Andrew Barraclough in NBA Draft
My first two posts back at HornetsPlanet have been Draft Grades for the 2018 NBA Draft and my opinion on Kemba Walker’s trade possibilities. The one big thing I agree with Tom Sorensen on in his column is that Kemba Walker is the one player...
Jun 25 2018 07:44 PM | Andrew Barraclough in NBA Draft
So the Hornets had another draft pick. It’s a yearly passage. Whether they will use them, whether those they use them on will play, if they will be 7’ and white. All questions that are answered yearly. Charlotte picked last week. The 2018 Draft came,...

We can figure this out... We know that SOMETHING is going to happen by July 7th and that right now the powers that be cannot talk about it. But I think we put on our collective CSI hats we can figure out what's happening before then. To start thing...

I’ll say this for Rich Cho: the Hornets GM doesn’t just zig when everyone thinks he’s going to zag, he turbo-zigs. He hyper-zigs. He zigs 88 mph in a DeLorean. My gut reaction to the decision to trade the 22nd overall pick in the draft for Marco Beline...

So the nba draft is a little more than a month away and the hornets have the number 22nd pick,no second round pick. I know most are expecting the team to trade the pick BUT. If not who would you like to see the team draft? The mock drafts i have seen...

A recent thread was devoted to Winslow vs Frank vs Booker and I finally took a proper look at picks #9, #10, and #13. Personally, I think all 3 teams 14 lottery teams did well for themselves. Every 2015 lottery selection has played 1200+ minutes except...

Man, after the last 48 hours, my head is spinning right round—like a record, baby, right round. Trades! Draft picks! Sleeved Jerseys! During the draft I was so wired and discombobulated that I was basically reduced to trolling Rick Bonnell on Twitter (...

I am too disappointed to think about him starting or not. Still just shaking my head. in defense of not taking winslow: winslow is an undersized sf or a non-shooting, weak handled sg whichever way you prefer to look at it. i keep seeing 6'6", he meas...

With the lottery scam over, we know that we will be picking at #9. OK folks, Who will that pick be?
Oct 23 2014 10:19 PM | QC Thundercats in NBA Draft
I posted this before, but since we're discussing the lottery again, here it is for reconsideration. Even though any system has its flaws and ways to be exploited, I think I've eliminated most of the glaring flaws, and I feel any weakness here is still...

My lord, find me a happier set of weeks in Bobcats/Hornets history since...ever? I guess with the franchise’s recent agreement with the NBA you’re technically allowed to reach back to the original Charlotte Hornets, but those don’t count because I wasn...

After selecting Shabazz Napier at 24, the Charlotte Hornets trade him away for the Miami Heat's #26 pick and two second rounders. they use that #26 pick to select elite shooter PJ Hairston. What are your thoughts on this pick?

Charlotte selects Noah Vonleh after he slides to #9 Noah... Welcome to Charlotte!!! HornetsPlanet, What are your thoughts on the pick?

The week of the draft is usually crazy with rumors, trades, teams moving up, teams moving down, smokescreens, player promises, agents lying to GMs and GMs lying to agents. Whatever news or rumors you hear, plop it into this thread for us to discuss....

People were already wondering if he could stay healthy with the super sketchy back injuries. Now he also has an injured foot, likely a fractured foot. If it is the serious type of fractured foot (like Brook Lopez) that requires a player to miss aroun...

So yesterday Woj tweeted about Randle: "Kentucky Forward Julius Randle will likely need foot surgery after NBA draft, miss two months" Julius Randle then Tweeted: "No disrespect but check with the actual source next time before you put something like...

With 3 picks in this draft, the second round pick at #45 would be a great opportunity to go for a high risk / high reward player.

Here is a thought: What if the Charlotte Hornets traded back # 9 and #24 to the Phoenix Suns for the 14th and the 18th draft picks. I think that at the #14 and #18 draft positions we would still have an excellent chance at getting two of the players...

My plan is to keep this running all the way up to draft night and we'll see how far we get. What we will do is vote on who you think will (not who you want to) be picked at each draft position. Once we have a clear consensus for each position, I will...

now that the Hornets have secured the #9 pick they picked up a ton of currency between now and draft night. the options are: use #9, #24 and the 2nd rd pick to pick up three new players use #9, package the other two to try and move up a few spots OR...

Since we're all in agreement here that the draft lottery is rigged. I'd like to hear who you believe the NBA will choose as it's top 3 teams in the lottery? Here is how I see it. 1. Cavs - even more Lebron payback 2. Lakers - because Lakers 3. Piston...

Who do you guys like for potential draftees with the Portland pick? What are your thoughts on Patric Young? I realize he is a bit puny *sarcasm* but do you think he has the potential to stick in the NBA?
