I think picks 1-3 will go Noel, Burke, Porter. Therefore, I think McLemore offers the best talent/fit for our team going forward
Nerlens Noel was the going away winner of our first poll. Let's see if things are different. Who do you think the BuzzKittens should take in the 2013 Draft? Take into account the players you think will be available to us so we can get a general opinion of how it'll go!
Mclemore or Bennet based on need. I've said before I'm not an expert on the incoming rookies, but they need a scorer with range at two-guard and a stretch four, and Mclemore and Bennett seem to be those guys this year. I went with Mclemore in the poll because Bennett's a little undersized to put next to a 6'8" center, although I wouldn't have a problem with Cho drafting either.
McLemore is my #1 option, Bennett is my #2, and Oladipo is my #3.
I think the first 3 go Noel, McLemore, Porter.
At first blush I take Len at four; but still pondering Oladipo.
I'd go with McLemore.
Cavs : Noel
Magic : Burke (let's pray)
Wizards : Porter
If the Magic takes McLemore then i'd pick Oladipo.

I think Oladipo is BPA (assuming Noel isn't available). He screams Cho guy and he is not so bad a shooter to be worthless alongside Kemba and MKG.
Zeller is a reach at 4. I hate bigs that play small.
Len is a reach at 4. He is a slight upgrade to Mullens and is your stereotypical pick & pop finesse Euro center. His favorite post move (b/c he can't back anybody down) is to settle for a turnaround J. Doesn't thrill me.
Bennett is too short (for us) and didn't show me enough effort rebounding and defending. I don't want to torment Biz with playing alongside yet another big who can't hold his own.
McLemore would be great if he falls. Arguably BPA and workouts vs Oladipo will be interesting.
Porter is a bit of a reach. I'm only interested if he can transition to the 2, otherwise too much overlap with MKG.
Muhammad sucks too bad at defense. Too short to play 3 and way too slow laterally to play 2. MKG can make up for a lot of this but I just don't think he's BPA at 4.
My crazy outside the box pick is Steven Adams. He'll suck for two years but I think he'll be a good starter down the road. Would make Biz's life much easier on defense.

We believe that its return will galvanize our fan base by unifying our loyal Bobcats fans with those who have strong memories of our city's NBA predecessor." MJ, 5-21-13
Oladipo or McLemore..
" It's rare i listen to people who never been in my position, a caterpillar can't relate to what an eagle envisions"
I have a feeling that McLemore's agent won't let him workout with Oladipo. That's just my guess though.
