Wiseman went 3/4 from 3pt. Hes literally a clone of Whiteside. Good comparison guys.

18/8 with 3 blocks in 25 minutes on 11 shots. 3/4 from 3pt - 5/6 from ft line.

Yeah I’m starting to believe that we were trying to trade up to take him at 1. I’m not angry that we settled though, I’m guessing wolves wanted too much

Same, I'm guessing all of the top 3 wanted Wiseman and Minny only passed because he refused to workout and said he didn't want to play for them.

Watching Batum be a perfectly serviceable player if not an important part of the Clippers rotation is going to be painful this year. The Hornets are cursed.

yall forgot what Diaw did when he left here if you didn't expect this from Batum initially.

You just know he's going to be the best player in this class.

Ya, looks like he might be the safe bet for best prospect. Totally possible someone else ends up developing better than anyone could have expected and ends up better, but he seems to have the most raw talent. Very small sample size, so its too early to really tell, but he really looks nice coming out of the gates.

Clifford keeping Bacon as the starting small forward.

I didn't expect Bacon to be getting much time this year.

Watched the Pacers Celtics game, which was a great battle. A guy I’ve always liked, Malcom Brogdon, was excellent. Second round pick #36...great ROI. Turner looks good, would love to deal for him, but can’t see them wanting anything we could offer. Both teams look way ahead of our Hornets right now.
I continue to wait...and hope...for the return to Hornet's glory.

Only one week into the season after an abbreviated training camp, and already the injuries are starting to pile up all across the league: Morant, Dinwiddie, Towns, Chriss, Zeller. Those are just the headlines.

Training camp, it turns out, is really important for the health of the players.

It seems like Ainge is trying to move Kemba for assets to send to Houston. It's no wonder guys bail on that team as soon as they are able to. I get that the NBA is a business and winning is the goal, but you need to have some loyalty to players that choose to sign with you.

Kamba is damaged goods. That knee is only going to get worse. Harden with Tatum would be something...

Right, which makes Kemba a huge risk to trade for. My guess is Ainge is still asking a boatload for Kemba even though he is not 100 percent which severely lowers chances he is dealt. Also, doesn't help that most teams are pretty set at the point guard position around the league. Who is so desperate that they are willing to trade assets for damaged goods at 36 million a season for next 3 years.?

Miami and Knicks are really only teams that make somewhat sense and Miami can't trade a future first until 2025.

Yeah we dodged a massive bullet with Kemba. Wish him the best, but that knee is shot.

Everyone hyping up Harry Giles in preseason and he can't even beat out Enes Kanter for minutes (who most on this board wouldn't touch with a 20 foot pole).

Portland playing Derrick Jones Jr massive minutes thus far.

Lakers stole Schroder, they are going to repeat.

Jerami Grant has put up 27 and 28 last two games. Josh Jackson had 27 points last night. Detroit onto something?

Trae Young has been getting to the freethrow line at an absurd rate... so far in three games he has shot 15, 17 and 14 free throws... wtf lol

Dillon Brooks good? I can't tell. He does not impress me when I watch him, but everytime I check boxscores he has had good games.

Dort might be the next Wesley Matthews. Really strong and already shoots it pretty well.

I wonder if any of our guys will want to do the G-League bubble. Surely at least Riller and Carey will be there. I wonder who else will take part?
