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.

The next few days are going to be so much fun!

    Great pick!

    Wow I never could have hoped for Noah Vonleh. Outside shooting, size, and defense.

    Hornets select Napier then trade him to the very team that wanted him. The Miami Heat. Why help the team that is already ruling the Eastern Conference? Not sure about the details yet but I hope its something that works out for both teams.

    Next year's 1st? Miami seemed desperate.
    Norris Cole has to be included in this deal. If so we get a pf, backup pg, and sg all in the same draft and still have another pick

    From what I read Cole isn't involved, I hope I am wrong.

    They got two second rounders. One this year & probably next year for making that deal. 

    What happened to McAdoo?

    Waow A LOT of talented player undrafted:

     

    We don't need a guy of McAdoo profile but what a bad move he made when he returned... he was a lottery pick or almost last two years, that's must be very hard for him

     

     

    We could go and try to get a 3rd PG with Jahii Carson or Deonte Burton? I really like Burton for defensive and highlights potential!!

    CJ Fair went undrafted too... could help at the 3 off the bench.

    Hoping we sign Jahii Carson to play for our summer league team. Sign Sessions in FA and see what Carson can do in summer league/camp and if doesn't work re-sign Pargo.

    So what are the chances we pick up Alonzo Gee's team option for next season? He would make $3.25 mil next season, my guess is we don't pick up the option.

    Some reason i had a feeling we were gonna trade with the Heat around the midway point in first half.. So when we drafted Napier i was kinda excited but I was definitely expecting that trade for Hairston.

    Once we got to 20 and Bazz was being talked about so much, I thought it would be a real possibility too. I was hoping we'd get more from Miami for doing it, but who knows about a 2019 2nd rounder. They could be in rebuild mode then and that's a high second.

    Bingo!  Cho looking ahead at a team that, if they keep the Big 3 together, their window isn't very big with the decline of DWade.

    I wonder what Chalmers was thinking the whole time LBJ was hyping Bazz. hahahaha.

    I've been saying Chalmers is one of the 2 main weak links the whole  time. But he should be crappin in his pants.

    Saying that Chalmers was one of the two weak links of a starting lineup that contains Lebron, Wade, and Bosh isn't a very bold statement.
