Hey guys, I have a YouTube channel and it is called Sports Guy Talking. Make sure to subscribe to the channel and check out my videos.
One of my videos was about the what the Hornets should do with the 12th pick in the 2019 NBA Draft.
This video was about why the Hornets should trade away the 12th pick. I said that the Hornets should either trade for Gordon Hayward, Blake Griffin, or Andre Drummond. Of course, this video was aired before Clint Capela was made available in trade offers. I said that the Hornets should pair the 12th pick with an expiring contract to get a really good player. I felt like Batum/Graham/12th pick would be a fair deal for the Celtics to accept in return for Gordon Hayward. The reason for that was because Batum could play behind Tatum without messing up the chemistry and that the Celtics could get a repalcement backup point guard with potential in DeVonte Graham since Terry Rozier's asking price will be way too high for the Celtics to accept keeping him. Having the 12th pick could also give the Celtics an extra trading piece for a potential block bluster trade. That trade helps Tatum develop freely while the Hornets would get immediate help for Kemba Walker. I also said that getting Blake Griffin would get Kemba Walker to resign with the Hornets since he once said that he wanted to team up with Blake Griffin if possible. He likes his game and giving up the 12th pick with a bad contract would help the Hornets in the short term. However, I was not a fan of that trade possibly happening because that would screw the Hornets up long term. I also suggested that the Hornets should attach that pick with a bad contract to the Pistons in return for Andre Drummond since he is such a good rebounder and rim protector. I said that he could help Kemba Walker out and could get the Hornets to become a better team in the short term. I concluded that it was the best possible deal for the Hornets to get if they used the 12th pick as trade bait. I did not really want the Hornets to select a player with that pick because that would not give immediate help to Kemba Walker. That was what the video was about. Now, please watch that video and like it.
