Mitch is the best pure drafting GM in the league. Look at his history. He's drafted so many gems from the Lakersuntil now. I think Jordan finally got it right...

Yep, and if you get the chance you should look into the coaches we've hired for both Greensboro and Charlotte. It's a seriously impressive group of people. This franchise hasn't been in a position for success like this since the original team left Charlotte.

And as you said we just added three 5 star recruits and a player with a top 5 scoring resume for all of college basketball over the last few decades (Riller) in a single damn draft. Which Mitch somehow accomplished by giving up a mere 2nd round pick.

If you aren't excited to be a Hornets fan right now then you need to pull your head out of your ass.

I agree. Mitch has been killing it for the last couple of drafts. When he has the money to spend and a team to spend it on (next year) I think we will see some nice well thought out free agent acquisitions too and then we are going to be good.

Looks like he's already changed his number due to the Hayward signing.
