Default If the Hornets get #1 pick . . .

and you are the GM, what would you do? You already have an Allstar in Chris Paul, and an up-and-coming guard Darren Collison. Should you draft Turner or Cousins?

I would probably draft John Wall, and trade Darren Collison for a big man. Wall isn't a pure point, so playing him at the 2 would be totally fine. Plus, he can improve his game under the guidance of CP3.

I'd trade Paul (try package Okafor and Stojakovic with him), and bring a huge haul of talent.

I'd have Wall play point guard, Thornton at shooting guard and then have Collison as 3rd guard.

You would get more for Paul then the pick.

Trade down to NJ for the 2nd or 3rd pick and get Brook Lopez

CP3
Turner
West
Lopez


Could be scary.

Well my logic was that I've heard regardless of whether New Orleans picks, they may look into dealing Chris Paul in part thanks to the emergence of Darren Collison. I don't know how real deal Collison is, but if NOLA wanted to run with him as their point of the future, thus making a John Wall selection kind of redundant (unless they wanted to roll with small backcourt), then perhaps the Hornets could turn Chris Paul and the number one pick into a mega-heaping of talent.

This. I'm sure the Pacers would entertain giving up expirers, #10, a guy like Rush/Hansbrough, and a future first for #1 and Okafor. I'm sure there're plenty of other teams that'd do the same.

Also the hornets would either send Okafor or Posey in the trade.

Nets fans right now are in love with Brook Lopez. We want Wall but we won't give up two potential max players just for 1. At this moment it makes zero sense. We'd lose more fans than gain in bringing in Wall.

How many Nets fans are there right now anyway?


Wall + Gay or Amare

isnt better than Turner + Lopez?


I think you get more fans with option 1
