Doubt they take Drummond. They have Bismack. Can't afford to take such a risk.They need some scoring. I would not be surprised if they went Harrison Barnes, but I think they will go with MKG.

T Rob is a good pick IMO. His real only set back is his height. But with his rebounding ability, energy and soft touch around the rim, he is a great prospect for a struggling team. He can also hit the jumper which a lot of 4s out of college cannot do. It will only get better/more consistent.

I'm hoping for Beal or MKG. MKG's last name would look nice on the back of a Cavs jersey.

No.

At #2 you better be sure you're getting a guy who is going to be a solid pro, who can weather the growing pains and still be productive while learning the NBA game.

That's MKG. He can do enough to help the team while he's developing as an NBA scorer. I don't see that in Beal.

On the flip side, Charlotte is absolutely desperate for a guy who can score. Don't get me wrong, I love MKG and how he hustles his ass on every play and is a very versatile defender. However, he was the 4th/5th option (at best 3rd) on the UK team, didn't show much offensive versatility- a lot of his offense was getting down low versus smaller guys from what I've seen, and his shot is absolutely horrendous. Who knows how long it'll take for MKG to develop an offensive repertoire or if he'll ever even develop one.

Only problem is, a lot of the scoring guys in Beal or Lamb aren't worth the 2nd pick either.


Personally, I think they'd be better served either trading down for multiple first round picks this year or taking Robinson.

Don't disagree. But if we're discussing selecting a player in that slot, I believe MKG is by far the safest choice. As you noted, his hustle and defensive ability will keep him on the court while he figures out his offense. I would disagree that he doesn't have enough offense to make it at the next level. Being the 3rd option on a team of 1st round draft picks is a bit deceptive.

I wouldn't take Robinson at #2 either. He's Drew Gooden imo.

Beal also doesn't seem to be as polished as Gordon as a scorer, especially in terms of how ready he is to step into an NBA scoring role. Gordon was a 15 ppg scorer immediately, I do not think Beal will be that kind of scorer early, especially not as efficiently as Gordon did it (45% his 1st 2 years). Beal reminds me of a Michael Redd more than Eric Gordon. I just dont see the explosiveness in Beal that I saw in Gordon at Indiana or in the NBA."

Thank you someone who watches basketball. Both Beal and Barnes are vastly overrated. I can't believe either are top 10 picks.

You HOPE Gee will improve. There is no draft on Earth where Gee goes over MGK.

Bob Finnan: Florida shooting guard Bradley Beal said he measured 6-4 today. Also, UConn's Andre Drummond said he lost 22 pounds Twitter

Beal is meeting with #Cavs today. He said he has heard they're are interested in him, but he hasn't had any communication with them until now. "I'd love to play with Kyrie Irving," he said. Sulia

Jason Lloyd: Beal is promoting himself as a combo guard, which is interesting. Part of it could be height stigma. Most see him as strictly a 2. Twitter

Jason Lloyd: Bradley Beal said he measured in officially this morning at 6-4. If that's true, it's bigger than quite a few people were expecting. Twitter
