I'm not the best guy to talk draft prospects with, because I only watch a little college ball, but you absolutely do not draft a guy based on how well he fits with Biyombo or Mullens. Take the best prospect available and iron out the details later, because this team badly, badly needs more NBA talent. Biyombo might make a decent starter down the line, but he could also be out of the league in five years as well, if he doesn't develop; Mullens is okay, but will never be great. The good news is, the top ten prospects are mostly shooting guards and big men, so the Bobcats will have the opportunity to fill one of their biggest needs.
I agree that we should simply take the best talent. But i will take exception to anyone saying that Noel is a more well rounded player than biz. Noel is horrible on offense. I mean absolutely atrocious! Not saying biz is good on offense, i'm just saying i would have a hard time wasting a top 5 pick on a kid that would give us 2 guys on our roster who basically just play D and can't hit the broad side of a barn with a shotgun! lol. We still need a go to guy, and dominant wing players are hard to get once you're not picking in the top 5. That's why i'd take Muhammed if given the chance. But someone else could certainly make a more compelling case to be the pick before the draft rolls around.
I would take Noel and move Biz for picks or a young vet pretty much straight away. I love Biz, but I'm not letting myself be blinded by My support for him. Noel can actually catch the ball, averages over 2 assists a game and does score off put backs. I have never seen someone miss as many attempts at the rim as Biz. Also he is a turnover machine who can't pass. He has something like 3 or 4 assists for the season. Not to mention that Noel is going to possibly set the record for most steals in an ncaa season.

Let the CHOsen one get to work!
Biz doesn't look promising to me at all lmao
I would take Noel or Gobert. More irons in the fire!
Alex Len over Noel at this point. I see him as nearly/if not just as good a defender, but with a much more polished offensive game/bball IQ
