2011 NBA Mock Draft, No. 9 Pick, Donatas Motiejunas, Charlotte Bobcats
Where do the Bobcats start? After trading away Gerald Wallace, there aren’t a lot of areas Charlotte doesn’t need help in to improve. The cries for Jimmer-mania will start at the bottom of the first 10 picks and if Charlotte’s smart, they’ll resist the urge to snap up media darling Jimmer Fredette who may or may not be a draft bust.
With a backcourt of DJ Augustin and Gerald Henderson that is solid, if not spectacular, Charlotte will probably opt for size, choosing among the Morris twins from Kansas, San Diego State’s Kawhi Leonard or Kentucky’s Terrence Jones. But I think the Bobcats are headed overseas for their size, intrigued by the upside of Donatas Motiejunas, a 7-foot lefty from Lithuania with incredible offensive skills. Think Andrea Bargnani of the Raptors but with a possibly higher ceiling. Will he turn into a Pau Gasol? That’s what the Bobcats are banking on.
