Re: New Orleans Hornets clear salary, get two rookies in NBA draft

I like the picks

BUT:

We still don't have a Center!!!

Okafur is a PF, Peja needs to go, Posey needs to find his game, will Julian Wright ever 'develop'?

This team is made up of several SGs and FWDs. We have no true center and I don't see any available in FA.

How much longer will Bower be allowed to run this franchise into the ground?

I wanted us to keep Aldrich... but oh well. Our first pick has plenty of potential and I don't know too much about the second guy to make a fair assessment. Meh. As for Peterson, I never understood the signing in the first place... so basically he screws us over twice.

So did Joe Johnson ... he was supposed to come here in a trade a while back ... but he vetoed it..... funny since CP3 and he are friends...

I wanted Aldrich too Papz. Thought he would bring solid defense to the middle and be our pick n roll connection for years...oh well.

When we traded back, I thought we'd pick up a Hassan Whiteside with the 21st pick and a pfwd with 26th.

Well, hey, we still need a CENTER!!
