In my opinion, red-flagged is overhyped- DeJuan Blair, Monta Ellis, and Danny Granger were all red-flagged I believe. Plus at 24 the reward far outweighs the risk.
Not particularly. That would be a quality for quantity type trade, and we've had draft picks in that area in the past. We really need to stay high lotto and get quality.
I feel like if there were ever a draft to want 2/3 mid round picks it'd be this one. A Lamb/Henson/DJO draft class would make a pretty big impact on your roster.
I understand what you're saying, considering it is a deep draft. That far down, though, we would be picking from tier 4 and 5 players, where we are currently in a position picking from tier 2 players (tier 1 is AD). Falling that far for good, but not great, players would be similar to us being a mediocre team again. I waited patiently, dammit, this entire season to get a high draft pick.
I'm not sure what your commitment to Augustine is, but what about this:
Hou: #2, T. Thomas
Cha: #12, #18, Lowry
You guys could use some cap relief with the BG pickup and Houston could put Tyrus next to Howard for some mediocre results I'm sure.
We don't need cap relief, and we already have enough guards. So I don't think that trade will work for us.
I believe the "Jumpmen" will ultimately trade the #2 pick and acquire multiple picks and maybe cut salary. I'm rooting for MJ to succeed as an owner after taking his lumps as a GM+I have family in Charlotte. I've only been to one NBA game in my life and it was when Charlotte still had the Hornets. I think Ricky Davis was still on the team LOL.

Hey would you guys do a sign & trade? The trade would be Dorell Wright for D.J Augustine. You guys have a bunch of undersized guards, and getting another good sized wing player would do you guys well in my opinion. Not to mention that you get a mentor for Kidd-Gilchrist.
I don't know if we'd look for another SF. Maybe if he can play some PF but I doubt it.
I wouldn't want to do that.
We need to trade for him depending on Augustin's contract situation.
My ideal move would be a sign and trade with Sacramento for Jason Thompson. But i know there is no way on earth that can happen
