I know this should probably go in the draft forum, but since I am talking about current Bobcat players I decided to put this here. Ideally, if I'd be ecstatic much like all of you to be able to draft a combo of Davis and a wing type player (barnes, lamb, gilchrist).
Right now near the end of the lottery is Portland, Houston, New Orleans and Phoenix. Right now our trading pieces are DJ, Diaw and TT. We also have a good amount of expirings for 2013. So my question is: Are there any realistic trade options to obtain a second lottery pick? I don't think TT or Diaw would be able to get it done. DJ+Portland pick for 2012 lottery pick might be one possibility.
Can you think of any others?
I love the possibility for a lineup that would include two lottery picks this year, but I have very little faith that we can pull it off. What do you all think? Please keep my dream alive!!
Dream Orgasmic Lineup
SF: Barnes, Gilchrist or Lamb(sg)
PF: Anthony Davis
I think the only way we get another high pick in this draft is if another g.m. is secretly in the closet and cho bends over and takes it like a man, while giving back 2 future 1st rounders! lol.
Ive thought DJ, and Boris to LA for thair two late first . Then trade LAs two first and our Portland first and our 2nd the 31st pick . Thats three first and a 2nd for the number 2 pick. We then Take Davis and Barnes.
Would love,, Kemba, Henderson, Barnes, Davis , SMACK ,,, line up
It has been mentioned before but Utah owns Golden States pick (top 7 protected) and are in desperate need of a quality point guard because Devin Harris isn't doing so hot right now. DJ would be a perfect fit for them but they don't want to give up a possible lottery pick for a player who may walk in July. They are hovering right at the lower end of the playoffs and their 2nd best player on the team, CJ Miles, is also an UFA in July. They already have $53 million committed to 10 players next season so re-signing CJ plus adding the salary of a lottery pick & 2nd round pick would eliminate any extra cap to go out and get better. So I've got this idea
Utah: DJ Aug., Boris Diaw, Derrick Brown
Charlotte: Devin Harris, Josh Howard, Jeremy Evans & Utah's pick from Golden State
All the players above are expiring contracts except Devin Harris who has one more year of 8.5 mil. For Utah, removing him frees up enough cap space to retain DJ & CJ and perhaps give them a bit more to go after a mid level free agent or two. Plus if the GS pick moves into the top 7, they get to keep it and we have to wait another year.
For us, well, we get even worse for the remaining of the year and by adding Harris and the salary of 2 lottery picks, we remove most of our available cap space for next season greatly limiting our free agent choices. But it also gives us a good backup PG. So, assuming we get the GS pick and it falls between 8-14, our team next season would be:
PG: Kemba, Harris, 2nd round pick
SG: Henderson, Williams, Carroll
SF: Maggette, lottery pick
PF: TT, lottery pick
C: Biyombo, Mullens, Diop
That gives 13 players and we can use our mid level to bring in another forward (Antwan Jamison perhaps for two years). Whats good is that the players in blue are expiring after next season and will free up over 35 million in salary thus letting us go after a big FA, re-sign Henderson and still build around our young core.

In Cho I Trust!
Do you guys think we really need multiple lottery picks? I mean I know it's a want, but I don't think we're THAT far away. That being said it may take a combination of an expiring like Diaw with one of our few assets that has some promise in return for a late lottery....who could we pull that off with?
