Substance behind Charlotte rumors?


There have been rumors about Charlotte wanting Afflalo, and now this Charlotte Observer article seems to bear them out. I linked article and cut a small portion in italics below. What makes this seem like more than a rumor are the following details. 1. We now have a day (Wednesday) when a call occurred. 2. A team that called, Orlando. 3. A player proposed. 4. A draft pick identified. 5. Acknowledgement that Charlotte is interested in dealing pick.

If this is pretty much an Afflalo for #9 I would sign the paperwork today. No knock on AA, the rationale is the same as why we traded JJ. Add whatever small filler is needed to make it work.

Poll question. Would you trade AA for the #9? In comments you can add who you would pick, or why you don't think this is a good idea.

When a selection is made with the ninth pick, however, Charlotte might no longer have it. A team called Wednesday asking the Hornets if they’re willing to part with their picks. They are.

Would you rather have a rookie or 28-year-old Aaron Afflalo? A 6-5 guard, Afflalo averaged 18.2 points for Orlando this season, hitting 45.9 from the field and 42.7 on three-pointers without anybody noticing.

Could the Hornets trade the ninth pick to young and developing Orlando for the veteran?
