Conversation in another thread got me thinking of different draft situations in the future.
Our future pick situation is looking like this.... http://www.prosportstransactions.com...re/Bobcats.htm
A couple things:
No new information here, but I would like to get some opinions on our situation.
What do we want Portland and Detroit to do? First thing that comes to mind is have them lose for a season or 2 so we don't receive their picks until we can get them in good draft position, and have them be as bad as possible once the exceptions are not as restricting.
When does the reward start paying off versus getting new talent soon? Is the absolute best case we don't get the picks until we can get them at the number one draft position? Is it maybe better to have them staggered so that we can get say Portland's in a couple years at like the 8th draft spot, and Detroits a year or two later a bit higher?
Would it be a huge let down to get 3 picks in next years draft, even if 2 are around 12-14?
Next year, is there any projections on who might be going at the 12-14 spot?
Drafting next year, assuming we are bottom of the pack again, is Shabazz the clear frontrunner on who a team should choose? How much of a drop off is Nerlins Noell? Is anyone else in the running at the top of the pack? Is the situation like A. Davis, then everyone else?
If we somehow get Shabazz Mohamad, does that make keeping Henderson less vital, and do you think he would stick around if we got such a player at his same position?
With Wiggins being a wing in 2014 that seems a clear number one choice, does that make us look at Zeller or Noel harder this coming draft? Is it dumb to plan like that, considering the likelyhood of getting both is very low? No matter what is Shabazz the clear winner next season? An A. Davis situation?
