Hey guys it's the moment you have all been waiting for, It's my first official DEPTH CHART lol. Well unlike other depth charts where I post everyone I seen, that I would consider drafting.

In order from best to worse at each position and who I would take -


PG -
Arturs Zagars
Cole Anthony
Cassius Winston

SG -
Killian Hayes
Tom Digbeu
Josh Green
LaMelo Ball - I don't have that much interest yet due to his DAD.
Ty-Shon Alexander - SLEEPER
AJ Reaves
John Petty

SF -
Mario Nakic
James Bouknight
Malcolm Cazalon
Georgios Kalaitzakis
C.J. Elleby

This kid is SICK. I am a fan. Iverson and Vince Carter in 1. I have never seen a draft with more players that are the type of players I like to draft than this one. Not even close.

Hey guys here is another depth chart update. My depth chart is different this year in that I have only included players that I have interest in so far. There are others, but none that I really would draft over the current at the moment.

I felt I had to add who is arguably or could be the best player in this draft thats Precious Achiuwa (who almost went to play for my TAR HEELS). I wasn't sold on him at first, but I must admit his potential is off the charts. As of right now he is probably the only player I would "consider" over Killian Hayes.

My 2nd player who I have grown to want us to draft is Aaron Wiggins. He has a complete game. Nothing flashy but could
be a second round steal.

PG -
Arturs Zagars
Cole Anthony
Kira Lewis Jr. - NEWLY ADDED
Cassius Winston

SG -
Killian Hayes
Tom Digbeu
Josh Green
LaMelo Ball - I don't have that much interest yet due to his DAD.
Ty-Shon Alexander - SLEEPER
AJ Reaves
John Petty

SF -
Mario Nakic
James Bouknight
Malcolm Cazalon
Aaron Wiggins - SLEEPER
Georgios Kalaitzakis
C.J. Elleby
Emmitt Matthews Jr.
Chris Ledlum

PF -
Precious Achiuwa
Jeremiah Robinson-Earl
Amar Sylla
Kai Jones - SLEEPER
Jordan Nwora
Filip Petrusev
Jericho Sims

C -
Neemias Queta
Will Baker
Ikey Obiagu - SLEEPER
Kerry Blackshear Jr.

I have a feeling we are going to take Cole anthony or Armondo bacott. Kinda predictable with Meeks and Hicks being invited. Then us sorta still needing a PG.

That Aaron Wiggins dude I am a fan of seems to be a good one on one player. I think he WON the Iverson King of court competition. You can see him play 1 on 1 at the 9:35 mark of the video. He is wearing #25. I really think he could be a second round steal.

He gives me Austin Rivers vibes. I hope he proves me wrong and makes his teammates better instead of playing selfish, hero ball.

Lmao, don't worry by the time next draft rolls around you will hear of %95 of these dudes. I have about 10 guys who if we got I would be EXTREMELY happy with.

1. Killian Hayes
2. Tony Digbeu
3. Precious Achiuwa
4. Jeremiah Robinson-Earl
5. James Bouknight
6. Mario Nakic
7. Arturs Zagars
8. Malcolm Cazalon
9. Josh Green
10. Aaron Wiggins

Probably in that order. Trust you will hear about them very soon :nod:

The Cleveland Browns of the NBA are going for it this season. Do whatever you have to do fellow Hornets fans to help the team win the lottery.

Cole Anthony scares me already because he averages more turnovers than assist at a HS level.Far from ideal for a PG. Also Roy Williams program hasn’t had the greatest track record for developing great NBA talent. Anyone have a nice in-depth report on R.J. Hampton though? I keep on hearing he is John Wall with a smooth jumper. Sounds like a cannot miss prospect if that were the case. How does he compare to Anthony Edwards? Who is the better prospect?
Your Charlotte Hornets! We’ll eventually get something right;right?

Maybe he's overconfident and attempting to practice NBA-level playmaking. Let him be overconfident. I want a guy who can take over and push his limits. Don't be shy about whipping a daring pass in HS. Wins and losses don't count there.

Cole Anthony is my guy. I have selected him.

If we get a top pick, I don't see how James Wiseman isn't at the top of the board. We've been trying to address the Center position ever since Big Al left and have not been able to do it. Thinking back to some of the guys we've trotted out there at Center will give me nightmares for the rest of my life. If Wiseman does well this season and continues to improve his range and strength, no other guy is going to come close. Add in Zeller's questionable health and Willy Hernangomez struggling to be a backup just makes this position even more dire than ever.

Just a reminder of draft picks we've wasted trying to get a center:

2013, #4: Cody Zeller
2014, #9: Noah Vonleh
2015, #9: Frank Kaminsky

Haven't seen a 7 foot center this springy in quite awhile

Our pick must be a complete player with no single glaring question, especially if we're talking top 5. That's why the MKG pick infuriated me.

Unless Wiseman is a high IQ do it all stretch big that can shoot, pass, rebound, and defend I'd rather the team focus on other players. I don't want to draft another Vonleh.

We need high-end scoring with a top pick. Also free agent answers to center seem more feasible vs. scorers. Drummond and Adams are coming up. WCS may come up.

Exactly, unless you're a Towns, Porzingis, or Embiid type big it's better to use free agency or the trade market to address the center position.

The fate of LMA is ring-chasing center on a vet minimum or a pillow deal. So top contenders can solve the position for peanuts. I think Mitch would have to be out of his freaking mind to spend a lotto pick on someone like Jaxson Hayes.

Currently I have Anthony Edwards, RJ Hampton, and James Wiseman as my top 3....things can change as we get into the upcoming season though.

There seems to be a lot of talent in this draft, and it would be a great year to grab another first rounder
