Blazers & Bobcats Interested In Stephon Curry

Donnie Walsh was scheduled to return from Italy last night after spending a weekend checking out what Europe has to offer for the NBA draft.

Spain's Ricky Rubio was not among the group working out at the Reebok camp in Treviso. New York is a destination very high on the 18-year-old Spaniard's list, but it is unlikely he will fall to the Knicks at No. 8.

Now it seems even Stephen Curry might not be there, either. The Davidson star, who has been quite open about his interest in becoming a Knick, has seen his stock rise to the point that he could wind up being taken by a team that trades up to a spot ahead of the Knicks. The Trail Blazers and Bobcats are said to be enamored of what Curry can bring.,1687958.story

Does anyone trust Jordan's talent evaluating skills?

Because I dont think the Bobcats need Curry at all unless they plan on letting Felton walk, and think Curry can come in off the bench and handle minutes at PG.

First, as it happened with Eric Gordon, it's becoming a fashion to mispell Stephen Curry. Please.

Blazers would make sense I guess, if making the correct trades.

But Bobcats? They have Augustin and Felton, and even if they use either of them in a trade, it's weird. Of course you can claim Curry is a combo guard, but you don't want to see Augustin/Felton paired with Curry.WTF?

It makes little to no sense for the Blazers. They trade Jarrett Jack... a real legit NBA talent for a project in Jerryd Bayless @ the #11 pick from Indiana, now they want to take on another project in Stephen Curry?

Unless they feel Bayless is ready to take on the starting role by the end of 2009 when Blake expires, and have Curry as the backup... it just doesn't make any sense. They need an experienced veteran at the point guard.

And in the case of the Bobcats... I thought they had enough guys stuck between the 2 & 1, with both Felton & Augustin being combo guards. Why add another tweener? The Bobcats need more frontcourt depth, not another combo guard.

Larry brown has stated he is going to choose talent over need, which explains choosing curry over whoever, but I really don't think we're going to trade up in this draft. If he falls to #12, which is very doubtful, we'll probably take him. Otherwise, look for the bobcats to take henderson or tyreke evans imo.
