According to Chad Ford at ESPN.com, the Cleveland Cavaliers offered up all four of their draft picks to the Hornets for the #1 pick and draft right to Anthony Davis.

The Hornets ended discussions of that trade very quickly with a simple “NO”.

I just want to point out the fact that this trade would have given New Orleans 5 picks in this years draft, 3 first rounders, 2 lotteries, and the 3rd & 4th picks in the second round. Anthony Davis has a lot to live up to.

Just for fun lets take a look at a mock draft from nbadraft.net and see what the Hornets draft would look like if this trade were to happen:

#4: Michael Kidd-Gilchrist

6’7, 233, SF, Kentucky

#10: Meyers Leonard

7’1, 250, C, Illinois

#24: Doron Lamb

6’4, 199, SG, Kentucky

#33: Drew Gordon

6’9, 239, PF, New Mexico

#34: Even Fournier

6’9, 190, SG/SF, France

 

By looking at this you can see the type of caliber players the Hornets could have selected with four of the Cavaliers picks. Swap Lamb or Fournier for a point gaurd like Tony Wroten or Marquis Teague and the Hornets would have themselves a brand new starting lineup. Not a bad idea if you ask me.

Did I say Anthony Davis has a ton to live up to?

Do you think the Hornets should have considered this trade?
