    I like the idea of soaking up Emeka's contract for a pick. I just enjoy the idea of possibly drafting 2 starters in MKG and Rivers.
    I thought you were joking earlier when you said AD would be like Hollins...

    Hey man people have their beliefs lol.

    This man won't even be better than Tyson Chandler. And it took Tyson like 6 years to be good.

    Wonder if something like #4, #24, #33, #34, Kings #1 for #1 and Okafor is something the Hornets at least think about.

    From Sam Amick:

    John Henson will be working out with the Cavs:

    North Carolina's John Henson wraps up workout in Sacto (No. 5), says he's going to Portland (No.6/11) tomorrow, then Phoenix (No. 13), Golden State (No. 7), Houston (No. 14 & No. 16), Toronto (No. 8), Philadelphia (No. 15), and Cleveland (No. 4). "It's going to be a long two weeks, but I'm ready for it," Henson said.

    If you think he's not gonna be great, fine. Tyson Chandler, fine, that guy at least has talent. I'm just saying Ryan Hollins played 4 years at UCLA and never averaged more than 7 points 4.8 rebounds and 1 block.

    Anthony Davis was going D-1 as a PG before his growth spurt, he has more skill than Hollins could ever dream of.

    Indications are that Sacramento wants to add a player at 5, who is a winner & mature. Locker room concerns seem factor into Kings decision.

    lol no. what the cavs offered is "disproportionately stupid." it's #4 and a bunch of junk, basically, for anthony davis. that's insulting.

    he is one of the three best prospects to come out in the past decade. cavs should easily, easily offer anything new orleans would accept excluding kyrie. kyrie and davis would likely go down as a top 3, if not the best, duo in the league and make filling out the rest of the roster really easy.

    I use Hollins just to poke fun. We all know he's a disgrace to the NBA.

    no, you're right. #4 and a bunch of junk picks is so worth. it. i'm sure if the roles were reversed you'd be demanding the cavs jump at the deal. they'd turn one 1st into two, what a killer deal!

    No one is a guaranteed amazing player, there have been very few. While Davis might be that eventually, if I were the hornets I would think about 4,24,33,34 and Thompson for that #1 pick. I know Thompson wasnt offered in the rumor but that would be what I countered with. New Orleans would have 4,10,24,33,34 and their other picks if any plus an upside PF on a team that is desperately in need of talent.

    Obviously Barnes has more potential. I have no idea how you could say MKG has more potential when they are pretty much equal athletically and Barnes is already pretty good offensively compared to MKG who can't really do much besides get hustle/fast-break points on offense.
    Yeah, lets just boil down a player's athleticism to one dunk.

    Ridiculous.

    Good read.

    ====
    Terrence Jones and Perry Jones III: The big Warriors workout

    It was a loud, long workout, that’s about all that was immediately discernible while Terrence Jones and Perry Jones III headlined a fascinating pre-draft group workout at Warriors HQ today.

    As per Warriors tradition, the media was not allowed in during the drill and match-up work. We waited outside, then were let in when the players were winding down.

    But you didn’t have to witness the actual workout to know what was at stake: Terrence and Perry Jones are two of the Warriors’ most likely options with the No. 7 overall pick and it’s no secret team execs wanted an up-close view of them playing against each other.

    So how’d it go?

    Other than Perry Jones III admitting he shot the ball poorly… and Terrence Jones sounding very confident about the workout (and getting a warm pat on the back from Jerry West)… it’s hard to say what happened in there.

    Info about the match-up–or what people say happened–will trickle out over the next few days, I assume, with various agendas and potential GSW smokescreen possibilities.

    As much as going vs. each other, the two Joneses were vying to show the Warriors that they could play NBA small forward after spending their final college seasons mostly at the 4 position.

    I’ve thought for a while now that, due to his toughness, rebounding and play-making skills, if Terrence Jones shows GSW officials that he has the agility to defend the 3 position, he’ll probably zoom to the top of their list.

    From getting a look at the two side by side (in non-drills) today, I’ll say this: They’re both HUGE small forwards, if that’s the position they play in the NBA.

    Terrence Jones is 6-9, 252 pounds, with big, big shoulders and you can tell he likes to handle the ball.

    Quick thought: I’m pretty sure he’s bigger and broader than David Lee. I don’t think there’s a doubt about that. Terrence Jones is bigger than a lot of other NBA power forwards, so he’d be a massive small forward, if that’s his position.

    And having a tough, big, broad SF would be something very valuable to the Warriors, I’d think.

    Perry Jones III is skinnier at 6-11, 235, but he’s certainly bulkier than a few past Warriors draftees–Anthony Randolph and Brandan Wright.

    PJones suggested he’s “the most versatile ever,” which is quite the statement, but then he quickly said he didn’t mean that literally, just that he wants to showcase all the different things he can do.

    That Barnes dunk was mehh. The spin move was better than the dunk. Kidd-Gilchrist dunked that ball on the way up, and almost tore the fuckin rim off right over top of someone.

    Yeah, for some reason, I want MKG even more in a Cavs uniform after seeing that dunk.
