2013 Current Draft Order/ Hornet's Pick #6
If the season ended today we would have the 6th pick and the draft would go as follows
washington - cody zeller
detroit - shabazz muhamad
sacramento - marcus smart
cleveland - nerlens noel
orlando - tony mitchell
There are a bunch of great pieces to be had at around this spot
james mcadoo - a combination of josh smith's athleticism with james worthy's jumpshot and IQ. Scores, rebounds and blocks shots w the best of them.
Otto Porter - A true do it all SF, great jumpshot and has an unorthodox style but can score. Has extreme balance and agility, blocks shots, gets assists, steals, everything. great size at 6"8 with a 7"1 wingspan. very unselfish, reminds me of a better shooting, less athletic iggy.
Alex Len - My fav prospect at 7"1 with a crazy good post game, rebounder and shot blocker. Ask Nerlens Noel, he destroyed him with 24 pts 12 rebs and 4 blocks and shut down Noel. Has endless potential. Reminds me of marc gasol.
Archie Goodwin - a 6"5 SG who can score effortlessly from anywhere on the court. A mirror image of Monta Ellis but less selfish.
Ben McLemore - a 6"5 SG who was just said to be the most talanted player ever seen at Kansas (according to their headcoach) This kid is the most athletic player in the draft. JR Smith clone without the atitude.
Isiah Austin - 7"1 who is averaging 14.9 pts and 9 rebounds and shooting 40% from 3. More athletic Andrea Bargnani
Now when the hornets pick and these players are available for me it comes down to WHO we grab in free agency and WHAT happens with Gordon. If Gordon comes back healthy and its clear the team will not trade him then I see no point in drafting a SG. If we do part ways with him I would absolutely love to get Archie Goodwin or Ben McLemore, but if we do keep gordon and he is the plan I think our BEST choice would either be Alex Len at Center or Otto Porter at SF
