can we expect the team to just keep the top picks of each round? can we expect any moves to grab 2 early picks? if so what happens to be the most of what we can get out of this 2012 draft. offense is vital, but defense is too. and what of any playmakers?
most experts think its defense that you get out of PF anthony davis. while true, he also hides a little bit of scoring touch under that furry brow. as for other prospects like andre durmmond and thomas robinson, we can expect as much. while these 2 would help the bobcats, I think we are targeting davis to help our swiss cheese interior defense. more after the jump
guys like beal, lamb and barnes can add instant offense off the bench and grow into starter roles on this young bobcats team. we are struggling to get to 90 ppg as a team, so we need a scorer who BECOMES the go to guy down the road.
if we dont get lucky and get a young swingman to run with hendo, that could solve or future socring problems. if we get bradley beal at 4 this could help us most with offense. then the second round top pick could be all about a guy like draymond green to provide even more scoring punch.
if we go all defense, even if we dont get a top 2 pick we will probably have C andre drummond there at 3 or 4. the guy is gonna be a pro ready center, but he wont wow you with his skills. he is more andrew bynum then dwight howard, but you dont pass on a prospect like that either way, paired with bizmack he could be a young dynamic duo in 2 years, and you could add a local toughman NCSU like cj leslie with that top pick in the 2nd to go all defense.
you cant forget about playmakers either. as unlikley as it sounds, cho might be open to a trade out of a pick at anyplace other then 1. if we come up snake eyes and get the 4 pick, he might call milwaukee and acquire PG beno udra and #12 for that #4 to take a guy like drummond, they need a center and we need vet playmakers. we end up with a pro player instead of another rookie who can make plays for our guys and then take baylors perry jones III who can score and make plays.
out of all options, I think its UNLIKLEY we try to squeeze another top 5 pick out of this draft. cho might be open to a move, but not at the expense of the future just to get ...say beal and davis.
so >>>what do we get the most of this draft?
