Hornets Selling Draft Pick?

Hey Hornets fans…don’t get your hopes up when it comes to seeing former LSU Tiger Marcus Thornton in a Hornets uniform.

ESPN NBA insider Chad Ford reports that the Hornets are exploring the possability of selling their 1st round draft pick.

If the franchise makes this decision it would mark the second consecutive year the Hornets have sold their pick for cash.

In 2008 the Hornets worked out a deal with the Portland Trail Blazers to sell that team the 27th overall choice in the 1st round.

The Hornets have the 21st overall choice in this months NBA draft.

If the Hornets decide to keep the pick (which would be a smart move) it’s believed that Thornton could be the player the Hornets select.

  1. I hope that the Hornets won’t sell their 1st round draft pick this year; the Hornets should keep the pick to select Marcus Thornton.

  2. hornets will always find the cheap route

  3. I like how people say ‘hornets will always find the cheap route and yet they have quite a few high contracts on their books. If you want to see a cheap route, check out the Grizzlies. Cheapest payroll in the league.

    • this draft is a pretty decent draft. what i was getting was that if the hornets were going to trade the pick they should get a player out of it. not like what they did last year. offseason starts soon so we’ll see what happens.


  5. great publish, very informative. I ponder why the other experts
    of this sector don’t realize this. You should continue your writing. I’m confident, you
    have a great readers’ base already!
