Good deal or bad deal for the Hornets?

Good because of money and they need a guy early that can step in right away. Unless Paul George fell to #18.

I heard George really scared the Hornets when they interviewed him. He came across as real immature.

Wolves can/have asked about #16 and #23 for the #11.

If they want to trade down, that would be the way to do it.

he's cocky as hell ,so i can see that.but he is a good talent and its best they turn it down because both picks would be more money than just 11 alone

Good decision by the Hornets, after 15 or 16 or so the draft gets pretty weak.

#16, #23 for #11 from the Wolves is as good as they will get if they want to go down. Wolves can even take Wright or something off of them

Someone get KAAAAHHHHHHNNNN on the blackberry and remind that dude that the Grizz want Paul George. Ship some picks to the Hornets so we can draft him ahead of the Memphis Fizz.

I think they would want to send Mo Pete, Posey, or Peja before Wright.

Disagree. Bledsoe, Larry Sanders, Hassan Whiteside to name a few? All of those guys have the potential to be impact players, especially Whiteside. 2 years down the line Whiteside could be among the best defensive bigs in the league (7'7" inch wingspan on a 7footer who considers shot-blocking an "art-form" - can't teach that) he's a pretty damn intriguing player as a later first round pickup.

Nobody is touching Peja to move up a few spots. I could see maybe Mo Pete or Posey, but quite honestly, if they want to move down to shed salary, they will be lucky to get rid of one of the lower salary guys, and grab a couple later picks.
We will see though. I mean Philly wants to get rid of Brand. Good luck.

Yea I think Peja is getting $15 million this year. He will be a Hornet still. Let's just hope he stays healthy.
