View Full Version : Cavs offered N.O the #4 #24 #33 and #34 pick for the #1 pick

Franchise anchor players only come through the draft every few years, guys that you can build around for a decade or more. Providing you donít run them off.

Thatís something Cleveland knows all to well.

Which is why they should know New Orleans were never going to trade the No. 1 overall pick and the rights to Anthony Davis. But it never hurts to ask, right? From Chad Ford at ESPN.

Sources say the Cavs offered (the Hornets the) No. 4, No. 24, No. 33 and No. 34 for No. 1. And sources said the Cavs got a firm and quick ďNo!Ē

Hey, Dan Gilbert ó good job, good effort.

No way that is good enough. This is not the NFL draft where you have to have 50 guys around, you play 9 most nights. Which means that in five years odds say at least two of the three guys picked at 24, 33 and 34 will be out of the league. Itís the cold hard truth. You donít trade a franchise changing player for that.

Yeah I agree. He's going to be a good player, but people are overrating him a lot. He's gonna get toyed with early on by more physical players if he doesn't add some weight. I can see him becoming a Marcus Camby type player, which is awesome, but he's not Bill Russell or anywhere close.

33 and 34 aren't that important (IMO)

This was my thought as well. Add TT to the deal and take one or both bad contracts in return. In that case, it's not a horrible offer. Especailly if Davis is a flop.

But in all reality, you can't trade someone like that knowing he could be a future Hall of Famer.

I could be alone in this, and maybe I have this opinion because I don't watch a lot of college ball but I just don't see what's so special about this guy. He looks like he'll be a defensive stud but I don't see where he's a franchise player. If the Cav's really offered their entire draft for him I would of taken it. You can still get a great player with the 4th pic and a good value at the 24 and 33 spots. I'm suprised it wasn't accepted if that was the case.

Well he doesn't really score all that much in College, so I don't expect him to turn into an offensive stud in the NBA.

I think a Marcus Camby comparison would be legit. I just don't see him as a franchise player. I guess we'll see.

He's a much better rebounder than Camby was coming into the league, he's a much better defensive player than Camby was coming into the league, he was the leading scorer on a loaded National Championship team. Incredibly efficient scorer, makes his free throws, has decent range, and great hands.

He's going to be a monster in the NBA.

He scored 14.2 ppg on 62.3% shooting as a freshman. No other big man has done that in their freshman years, especially in the SEC. Shaq averaged 13.9 ppg on 57.3% shooting as a freshman, Duncan averaged 9.8 ppg on 54.5% shooting, Hakeen averaged 8.3 ppg on 60.7% shooting, Ewing averaged 12.7 ppg on 63.1% shooting, David Robinson averaged 7.6 ppg on 62.3% shooting. Point being, Davis was a freshman and only 19, he's still going to grow. Just like those guys mentioned above did. Just at the end of the year you started to see his perimeter game.

Even Coach Cal has stated that we didn't see a large part of Davis's game at Kentucky. We're talking about a guy that was being recruited as a 6'3 guard by smaller schools, the guy has serious skills.

Not really.

The 4th pick in the draft isn't anywhere near the prospect Anthony Davis is.

After that you're talking about a late first rounder, and two second rounders.

How many second rounders actually make NBA rosters? Chances are if the Hornets did that deal, two of the four players (if not three of the four) wouldn't even be in the league by the time Davis was getting his second contract.

Awful deal.

Nobody on the Kentucky team scored alot, because it was stacked. People says the same thing about MKG. If one of them was on some crappy college team or pulled an OJ Mayo, you wouldn't think they would light it up?

Or I'm simply addressing the fact that the guy said he thinks the Camby comparison is valid by saying that Davis will be much better than Camby.

Who compared Camby to Wilt?

As for your second point, it is silly and deserves no response.

I agree with some of the posters on the 1st page that Davis is being over hyped BIG time. As of right now he is a Marcus Camby type player. I really can't see his game developing that much to where he will be a threat on offense. He very well could but I just can't see him being more than a 15ppg guy.

nolafan33
06-11-2012, 09:37 PM
The Camby comparison offensively is a bad one. Camby never had the ability to play on the perimeter, hit the midrange shot consistently or even stretch his range outside the three point line like Davis can. Camby never had the ability to put the ball on the ground like Davis can. He never had the passing ability Davis has. And so on.

Theres no way you can accept that deal. The possibility that Davis turns into a superstar makes him a player you cant pass on no matter what. Now if he ends up being a bust and someone like Beal, Barnes or Drummond (whichever one ends up being the 4 pick) becomes the superstar, everyone will look back on this story and say if only they made that deal.

However like I said initially, you just cant trade away a player that has the chance to be a superstar and the face of your franchise for the next 10 years. Especially when youre a team like NO that has no one and is in danger of losing the team from the city.

I wouldn't take the trade but I think people ar overvaluing Davis a little too much. He really has to fill out his body and it might take a little to adjust if he wants to be as great as people are saying he's going to be. I guess he could be a kg type player but kg also has that extra determination that drove him to be the player he is/was. He's only been 6'10 for 2 years so we don't really know how he'll play when he fills out. I think he'll be good but think its crazy that people say there's no way in hell they'd trade that #1 pick for a guy like Dwight Howard (and I hate Dwight). Davis has a lot to prove and improve on if he's going to make it to superstardom and I hope he doesn't lose his drive if he's not as successful as people expect in the next couple years.

topdog
06-12-2012, 02:51 AM
Whether or not people like Davis or not, #4 is a major downgrade from the concensus #1 to likely also losing out on Beal and MKG.

The gain from this is a very late 1st rounder and some 2nd rounders which really aren't all that useful for a team that is trying to get players on the court now (2nd rounders generally are best used on overseas players imo). Not worth it.

gilly
06-12-2012, 06:51 AM
People doubting Davis offensively are just wrong.

He played on a stacked team, filled with future NBA players (Jones, Teague, Lamb, Kidd-Gilchrist, Miller) so didn't get many touches on offense. He's good on the drive, mid-range, can knock a three down, has good handles (was a guard until recently), and can grab offensive boards and score very often.

Defensively he will be a phenom. He's gonna lead the league in blocks in his first three seasons, book it.

Cavs should throw everything they've got at this guy and pray.

Exactly. I'm not going to sit here and say he's going to be a superstar, but he sure has the potential to be one. He can dribble, pass and shot. He already has a pretty good post game as well.

But it's his defense that have him as such an elite prospect. Look at what Dwight Howard does on the defensive side of the ball. Davis has that kind of talent to do that. To completely change the game. Whatever offense he brings is just gravy on top

True, I think Davis can be a possible defensive player of the year. I would like to see what his offensive game is about. Can he create his own shot? I haven't seen too many of his games to determine this. If his offense matches his defense and athleticism, then I don't do it if I'm NO.

If he's not what I think I'm getting (multiple time all star, impact player) then I do the trade. The Hornets can continue to build in future years. They can put those 2 second rounders and trade for a future 1st rounder in the next draft. They can get even more creative if they want. Having the ability to pick multiple first round prospects won't hurt a franchise, especially if all the fans and ownership know they're going to be rebuilding anyway...

Nobody trades 2nd rounders for 1st rounders. This isn't the NFL. Most teams usually just buy 2nd rounders. NO is getting nothing in this deal they can't get using cash. And the chances you get a guy at #24that is even average is probably less than 50%.

Lol at Gram.

I wouldn't be a complete ******* if a few people were a little smarter.

How anybody can say the Hornets should take that deal is beyond me. We're talking Anthony Davis for like Thomas Robinson, Doron Lamb, Furkan Aldemir, and Will Barton. Think about that for a second. Horrible deal for the Hornets.

And again, it's fine if you don't agree with that big post. But why would the Hornets trade a young prospect like Anthony Davis for a guy like DWade? Chris Paul? Guys over the age of 25? So we can be stuck in mediocrity again and be stuck trying to rebuild five (or less) years from now again? Why would we trade Davis for Kyrie or Griffin when Davis is a better all around prospect for both? Again, call me a ******* if you like, but people need to be a little smarter. Trading Davis for guys that are in their prime right now in no way benefits the Hornets for the future, which is what we are building towards.

I would do this deal in a heartbeat. I honestly don't see Anthony Davis becoming a superstar.

He reminds me of Tyrus Thomas coming out of college-long, athletic but not much of an offensive game. He might become a solid defensive stopper, but I don't see him ever averaging more than 10-15 PPG or being a player you can build a team around.

He averaged more points as a freshman in college than almost any recent hall of fame big man.

Seriously, this "his offense needs work" stuff is getting ridiculous. Of course he will get better, but it's already very good.

Its hilarious seeing people criticizing the Cavs in this thread. What the hell do they have to lose making this offer? Obviously NO isn't going to take it but it doesn't hurt to take a chance. This really is a non-story.

Hornets already said they will not trade the 1st pick overall. Nice try Dan Gilbert lol. Cavs need to put up a bigger package if they truely want Anthony Davis.
