haha just two seasons, they had PJ Hairston, Marvin WIlliams, and Handoosh. LOL wow, its worse than i thought.
Quote :
"The Hornets franchise has had a history of catering to former UNC and Duke players in an effort to energize the fan base. In 2005, after being back in Charlotte as the Bobcats for only one year, the team selected UNC stars Raymond Felton and Sean May in the lottery. In 2009, the Bobcats selected Duke star Gerald Henderson and in 2011 they traded for another Dukie, Corey Maggette. Another Blue Devil, Josh McRoberts had a cup of coffee in Charlotte as well, playing for the Bobcats for the 2013-2014 season. Hansbrough is now the third ex-UNC player on the Hornets' roster as he will be joining Marvin Williams and P.J. Hairston.
So while Hansbrough may not fit a specific role on the court for the Hornets, he does help the team market themselves to die-hard Tar Heels fan in the state. "


I rest my case. Nothing like adding a crappy player to the cap just to market to muh Holes, lol

to be fair, gerald henderson is probably the third or fourth best draft pick they've made since they've been back.

^^ now you just trollin.

One dude on 53 man roster, vs 3 players on a 12 person team (starters + bench), is obviously apples to oranges.

Plus, the panthers went after Peppers because he was a freak of nature and tottally worth rostering for his production. The Horheels take up cap space with worthless garbage like Tyler Hansbourough because they know the ppl of charlotte love ther Tarheelz!

I mean, the proof is in the pudding mr. twista.

Such petty grudges, HOOPS. You'd think you'd just enjoy some entertaining HOOPS instead of constantly bemoaning over where a fellow or lad chose to participate in amateur athletics. Sad!

Baron and Eddie played together for like a year. Perhaps you meant the Baron Davis to Jamal Mashburn years, when we were a Ray Allen 3 pointer away from facing the New Jersey Nets in the Eastern Conference Finals?

Getting rid of Belinelli is a plus, I'll take it. Even though Dwight Howard is old and busted.

getting rid of plumlee's 12.5m per over the next 3 years is huge. we get best player, best pick. Lose Belinelli, but jeremy lamb can fill his minutes. Howard's contract is pricier than plumlee's but it's shorter and we aren't doing anything in free agency until the marvin/mkg contracts run out anyway.

Even if howard sucks, this is a no-brainer, winning deal for me.

Setting up nicely to take the local guys. DSJ, Kennard, Giles at 11, Bradley or Jackson at 31

i wish dsj dropped to 11, not going to happen. if hornets pick giles or kennard at 11 i'm not going to be happy. Kennard fills a need but not sure he's athletic enough to be anything more than a specialist. Can he defend? Giles showed nothing last year to warrant a lottery pick, injuries have already derailed his career. No way jackson falls to 31, I'm terrified Jordan will take him at 11. Bradley at 31 is the only pick I could somewhat get behind.

Justin Jackson is a late first/early 2nd round pick. His draft stick has been falling pretty consistently.

Getting rid of Plumlee was a plus. If they must pick an ACC guy go with Isaac if available or Collins.

[Edited on June 21, 2017 at 11:13 AM. Reason : Justin Jackson at 31 is acceptable]

So how disappointing are the two picks going to be? Any predictions?

In typical CLT fashion I'll bet they take Kennard at 11 and Bradley at 31.

they haven't drafted a duke or unc guy since '09 - and that was Gerald Henderson, their only Duke draft pick ever. they haven't drafted a UNC guy since '07, and he was immediately traded. they have drafted 5 total duke/unc guys dating back to 1988...one of those 5 guys was brandan wright who was immediately traded, so really the number is 4 in nearly 30 years, with the last UNC players who were drafted and actually suited up for CHA being May/Felton in 2005.

i also hate duke and unc. but maybe they draft more duke and unc players because duke and unc put way more guys in the pros than nc state.

by my count CHA has drafted more than 1 player from these schools: 4 UConn guys. 4 Kentucky guys. 4 UNC guys. 4 Indiana guys. 3 UCLA guys. 2 Tennessee guys. and a buncha schools represented by just 1 pick.

or, as ^^ points out, UConn jokes are just as applicable.

LOL who said I predict it because of Duke and UNC? I'm saying they will make two bad picks.

I could also easily see them going with Lauri Markkanan or Zack Collins at 11. Which I think are both busts.

i think most everyone bitches about it because the fledgling bobcats drafted 2 UNC players in the first round in their 2nd(?) draft ever. And they did it with the stated intention of getting fans in NC interested in the team.

but that was a different owner who was dumb as shit.

Not that I think Monk is going to be anything but the 2 guard "6th man of the year" gunner-type who actually isnt that useful of a player but it would be very Jordan to pass on him for some turd low ceiling multi-year college guy

There's definitely a segment of state fans (mostly the PP type) who stillcall them the TarCats and say they can't root for them because MJ is the owner and they draft and acquire too many UNC player. I guess I took your statement the wrong way. My bad.

I guess PJ Hairston in 2014 was technically a d leaguer, but that was a unc pick...

Regardless, good week for the hornets. Got out of the Plumlee contract, Monk fell to 11... I was pretty down on them less than 7 days ago and now they have an interesting roster. Not going to compete for any titles, but should win some games and be fun to watch.

Well yeah, because the NBA has silly rules.

Also Sacramento just "drafted" a UNC guy and a Duke guy. (or you would say Portland drafted them)

we have no dukies, jackson's going to New Orleans. Jordan wanted to recoup some of the cash he's spending on dwight's contract so he swapped the 31 pick for the 40 for some cash

"swapped the 31 pick for the 40 for some cash"


I don't follow the NBA too closely, when cash is traded in cases like this, does it add to a teams salary cap next year, or is it literally just the team paying for the pick swap?

I thought it was just a lump sum, which I guess makes sense if you have the 31st pick but know the guy you want to pick is available for the 40th pick...

EDIT: Apparently they did this to stay under the salary cap

Quote :
"The move makes a lot of sense salary cap wise for Charlotte. The NBA salary cap for the 2017-18 season will only be $99 million which is $3 million lower than the projected $102. The Hornets were dangerously close to being over the tax threshold and by getting cash for the 30th pick, they will probably be able to stay under the tax cap."
