We had our 1st annual WFNZ Pro Hoops Draft Roundtable last week discussing the best NBA draft picks for the 2014-15 season, who the Charlotte Hornets should pick each round, and other topics concerning each player and team in the NBA.  Our NFL Draft Roundtable Party was such a huge hit that we had to have one for the Hornets, who displayed their new jerseys for the first time in public at our event.

Our panel of experts included former Charlotte Bobcat player Matt Carroll, Hornet TV commentators Steve Martin & Dell Curry, Charlotte Observer writers Rick Bonnell and Tom Sorensen, and WFNZ on-air hosts Chris Kroeger, Colin Hoggard, Nate Conley, Frank Garcia, Mark Yarbro, and more!

Special thanks to All-American Pub for hosting the event and Corona Light for providing the free beer!

Our first video talks about who the Charlotte Hornets should pick this year in the first round at the #9 spot. Plus, the guys discuss the future of Josh McRoberts and whether or not Rich Cho should resign the former Duke player & for how much.

We dive into discussing how the Charlotte Hornets franchise can be more appealing now to free agent players since we made the playoffs last year and have players that can build around to become even more successful in the Eastern Conference.  Plus, the guys discuss The Big 3 in Miami and whether or not a model like the Heat’s could be a future move for the Hornets.

Finally, our panel discusses Rich Cho as a general manager to the Charlotte Hornets and each person gives their final selection as to who the Charlotte Hornets should pick at #9 in the first round (if they couldn’t trade the pick either).
