Well the draft rumors are starting to reach a boiling point. According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, the farthest Frank Kaminsky is going to fall will be the ninth pick in the draft.
Every team in pursuit of Frank Kaminsky understands: It has to leap over Charlotte at No. 9.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojYahooNBA) June 25, 2015
This isn't a guarantee the Hornets will take Kaminsky, but it seems that everybody across the NBA thinks they're taking Kaminsky. This is crazy to hear after all the time the team was connected to Devin Booker, and their statments of taking the best player available, but apparently the front offic has fallen in love with Kaminsky and his game.
That, or this is one hell of a smokescreen. Think of it this way. Charlotte has been trying to trade down for this entire draft. There's a handful of teams below nine that probably want Kaminsky to fall to them. If the Hornets front office starts leaking out that they want Kaminsky at nine then their chances of getting a trade at nine increase.
However, if it quacks like a duck, and walks like a duck, then it's probably a Frank Kaminsky being selected as the ninth pick in the draft, duck.
