Davis first to Hornets, then what in NBA draft?
Davis will head to New Orleans with the No. 1 pick, even if the college player of the year is reluctant to guarantee it.
After that, nobody can be sure what will happen.
“I don’t know,” said Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, a fellow freshman from national champion Kentucky. “I have no clue.”
Well, here’s how the first round might go at the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J.
1. NEW ORLEANS (21-45)
ANTHONY DAVIS, F, KENTUCKY
Davis said he hasn’t been told he’s the Hornets’ guy, but he shouldn’t need to ask. Teams don’t pass up his mixture of size, skill and defensive dominance.
2. CHARLOTTE (7-59)
THOMAS ROBINSON, F, KANSAS.
Michael Jordan has botched a No. 1 pick (Kwame Brown) and a No. 3 (Adam Morrison) and now his Bobcats are at No. 2 after slipping in the lottery following the worst season in NBA history. Charlotte needs some toughness, and Robinson can provide it.
3. WASHINGTON (20-46)
MICHAEL KIDD-GILCHRIST, F, KENTUCKY
