MJ directing the ship in Charlotte?

MJ directing the ship in Charlotte?

Postby JSM on Tue Jun 20, 2006 12:34 am

Draft Express: Sources in Charlotte have informed us that Michael Jordan will have a major part in deciding who the Bobcats draft with the 3rd pick. The Bobcats are telling people that since Jordan did not pay close attention to the nuances of the college basketball scene this past season, whoever they draft will have to work out in front of him and prove their value.

Jordan will be sitting in on an extremely intriguing workout on Thursday scheduled for Rudy Gay, Brandon Roy and Tyrus Thomas. The day will kick off at 9 with a one on none workout featuring LaMarcus Aldridge, who continues to raise questions about his heartbeat by refusing competitive workouts. The Bobcats attempted to add Adam Morrison to the wing trio (Gay, Roy, Thomas) scheduled for 1-3 PM, but Morrison’s commitment to a late afternoon workout on Wednesday with Toronto will not permit him to join in.

The problem for Charlotte is that it’s not a given that their other invites will show up either. Tyrus Thomas is also rumored to have pulled out of the workout, as he did yesterday with the Portland Trailblazers. Many feel that a deal is already in place for a team to trade for the Bulls’ #2 pick, and that Thomas has been informed that he’ll be the one taken there. Brandon Roy is also rumored to be pulling out of the workout on Thursday, although this makes quite a bit less sense.

Information we received today says that as many as six teams are currently in the hunt to trade up for the #1 or #2 pick, and that it’s likely Adam Morrison that they covet. The six teams are Minnesota, Boston, Houston, Phoenix, Portland and Charlotte. Morrison could very well conduct workouts with the teams that appear most serious about trading up in the draft to get him.

Why is LaMarcus dropping. I saw on nbadraft.net that he is now projected 7th??

that sucks for them, I hope Jordan has learned his mistakes in drafting

I heard from realgm that Jordan is favoring Roy right now with the 3rd pick and Bickerstaff wants Gay... so right now its Gay vs. Roy

hey Jordan don't try to put all the pressure on your rookie and don't call him a flaming.... well you know the rest.
