Let’s get this thing rolling.

Alright here we go. This is the start of our At the Hive community mock draft. In case you missed the intro, several members of our community have signed up to represent a team in our mock draft. There will be no trades because we don’t have time for that and I wanna make the first iteration of this as clean as possible.

Here’s how it’s going to work:

  • Picks 1 - 11 are going to be made in this thread. If you are signed up for a team in that range (full list below), please check back frequently so you’re ready when it’s your time to pick. If a pick isn’t made in a day or so (leniency will be given on the weekends because I know a lot of you spend more time on here during the workday), we will Adam Silver you and make the pick for you. If we start pressing closer to draft time, we may cut down on the pick time window.
  • Make all picks in the subject line of your comment and provide a brief explanation for your pick. I’m going to post the first three picks as an example. Other discussion is welcome, but let’s try to not use the subject lines when not making picks so it’s easier to find the actual picks.
  • Once the first 11 picks are made, I’m going to put up a new post with your picks and explanations along with a poll containing every conceivable player the Hornets could choose based on the mock to that point. I’ll leave it up for a day. Once the community has spoken, I’ll announce the pick in another post and we will continue with the remainder of the picks.
  • This is the first time we’re doing something like this, so I have no idea how it’s going to go and we may need to make changes as this rolls along. Please be flexible and remember this is supposed to be fun.
