1. Corey Brewer - I expect him to be gone by #8 sadly (I can see any of Memphis, Boston, Milwaukee, and Minnesota taking him).
2. Mike Conley Jr. - Most likely best player available at #8, but I can also see him being gone by our pick.
3. Julian Wright - Crazy versatile wing, can provide depth at SF or possibly replace Wallace if he leaves.
4. Yi Jianlin - Can give us a good inside presence with a scoring touch.
5. Jeff Green - Same as Wright, but I'm not as high on him at #8.

Timmeh, I like your idea about moving up from 22 better. I would be OK with Green, Brewer or Wright at 8.

I don't like the idea of using the 8th pick on Conley, I liked him better as the 5th pick when his name was Ray Fleton.

I was flipping through the channels and Greg Anthony was on ESPNEWS saying the Cats should draft Brandan Wright. Is he going to slip that far?

Hell no. He will be the #3 pick.

Yeah. I've looked at some mock drafts, and here's what they say we'll be (supposedly) getting.

Yahoo: Joakim Noah
DraftExpress: Corey Brewer
ISH: Al Horford
ESPN: Mike Conely
SI: Jeff Green

I honestly have a feeling I'm going to be disappointed with this draft. None of the names past the 3rd pick really appeal to me. Corey Brewer is probably the only guy I want now.

Anybody but Joakin Noah. He looks like a girl and is garbage IMO.

If anyone honestly thinks we should draft Mike Conley there is something wrong with you. We have holes to fill at SG and downlow with Okafor being our only effective player, so drafting Conley to fight Felton over a starting PG slot does nothing for us especially when we have Mcinnis and Knight as backup PG's. As far as Hibbert withdrawking im somewhat glad. Hibbert is a solid player, but I wasnt a big fan of his footspeed especially in todays NBA which seems to be growing much more athletic year in and year out.

Real GM has reported that the Blazers are trying to trade back into the lottery to pair Oden with Conley Jr. If Conley Jr. is available at #8, do you think the Blazers would be willing to part with LaMarcus Aldrige and Martell Webster for #8 and maybe Matt Carroll (or another player)? I would definitely do that trade, but I feel as if it's wishful thinking. The article mentions the backbone of the trade would be Zach Randolph and Jarrett Jack, but I don't think the Bobcats want any part of Randolph (though he is a great player) and Jarrett Jack doesn't seem like a player we'd want.

Portland isnt going to be able to trade back because Atlanta is going to take Conley at number 3 and wit hthe amount of depth Atlanta already has on their front line I cant see them passong on yet another PG in a draft for a couple more athletic big man.

I think Atlanta might "threaten" to take Conley in order to get a king's ransom for their #3 pick from the Blazers, but I doubt they'll take Conley. I think instead they'll take Horford or Wright at #3 and take Acie Law IV at #11 (or if he isn't there maybe reach for Crittenton).

The Hawks don't need anymore big men. Conely will probably go third, then Wright at 4. We'll be lucky if we get Brewer.

The trade idea with the Blazers is awful. No one on that team is worth having.

What about LaMarcus Aldridge and a first next year to Atlanta for #3? Atlanta could get an athletic big man to fit in with their style of offense and a first rounder in a draft next year in which they will not have one? Blazers can be comfortable knowing that it won't be a top 5 pick since Oden won't let that happen. Atlanta still has a pick at #11 and they could take a guy like Javaris Crittenton or Acie Law, or sign a PG.

Why are you talking about Atlanta on the Bobcats board?
