I like Iggy, i do, but i think he's too old for our plans.
As does My NBA draft (Hornets at 7): http://www.mynbadraft.com/2013-NBA-Mock-Draft
The performance of Aminu, however, completely shifts my draft philosophy (given that he performs near this level the entire season).
I kind of want to go all in on Shabazz if he plays at the elite level I think he is capable of this college basketball season.
Maybe a 1st rounder, 2nd rounder, and future 1st rounder/asset to move up 5-6 spots?
Imagine a team with Rivers, Gordon, Aminu, Anderson, and Davis with Shabazz coming off the bench (a long with Vasquez, Miller, Smith, and Lopez). He'd also give you more leeway/incentive to ship Gordon out.
On top of that, we'd essentially have all our position of needs fulfilled (playmaking 1 is questionable, but I believe in Rivers) short-term and long-term with a ton of cap space to play with.
Otherwise, they are some talented 4/5's that could fall to the 6-10 pick range (where I imagine we'll be picking with no Gordon).

"I'm not going to allow my putative owner to answer that question, this is an NBA related press conference. Paul Tagliabue and Roger Goodell have collectively sung their praises of Tom and if uh ESPN has a problem with that tell Mr. Skipper to call me at my office."
I don't get how after watching this team play. People can expect them to have a top 7 draft pick. I will be disappointed if we aren't in the 7-9th seed range in the playoff race
Again though, we only have a three-game sample to work with. I'm not willing to look at our team's prospects any differently until more games are played and they display a consistent pattern of smothering defense and average to above average offensive efficiency.
A thread like this is bad vibes. Nobody wants to look forward to having a lottery pick until it's quite obvious and necessary. I like Ws.
