    This was a decision I was expecting but I was hoping that we would keep him. It seems like we have all stretch 4s and the only 5 we have is Big Al and he sucks at defense. I guess we will see what happens through FA but I hope we can get someone that can defend.

    Hes a SG. His brother is the PG. I am looking forward to seeing him play too though

    To be fair to Frank, most of Charlotte hated the Bobcats as well. 
    As for the trade opportunities: Who knows the truth? Does it really matter? Fact is we could have, should have but it doesn't matter now. I have come to terms that we are who we are. I will cheer for Frank and the team bc I will love the Hornets no matter what!

    I say yes. Even for as much as we bitch about this tea, barring injuries again we will make the playoffs this year.

  5. yasuhara2241 added a post in a topic How could the Hornets pick Justice Winslow...   

    I disagree with the most overrated part. He was one of the few good picks that we have had. He has shown improvement every year and is a lock down defender that improves the team defense when he is on the court. That last part is my only problem with him. Due to his style of play we have yet to see him play a full season. For that reason he isn't untouchable for me but I would need a great offer to trade him.

    Still disappointed but trying to accept that he is a Hornet.
    Positives:
    Depth at the bigs. We won't have to see Jason Maxiel play.
    He is probably our Big Al eventual replacement but his game has a little of everything. 
    How many 7 footers can shoot the 3, pass, have a post up game, etc
    Future Line-up
    PG: Kemba SG: Batum(resigned) SF: MKG PF: Zeller? C: Frank 
    ....not bad....ok I threw up a little in my mouth

    its not like you couldn't have mkg and winslow! why is it one or the other?? Winslow learns behind Batum and takes over the SG position if Batum doesn't resign and he shows growth. 
    And MKG is very important and under appreciated by many on here. Look at our teams record without him on the court. Some things aren't noticed in stats.

    Good to hear bc I have a feeling we are going to trade up but who knows I am usually wrong with the Hornets. 
     
    Yeah I guess it would be trading out one project for another but in the process we pick up a starting SG that we don't have to wait on.

    So do you think Mudiay is a big upgrade to Kemba + 9? I do not know much about him. 
    I agree about Porzingis. I like him for some reason but I know why. I would hope we can get rid of Zeller + 9 to get Porzingis but I don't think thats likely.

    Who do you guys want at 4 assuming Towns, Okafor and Russell are off the board? 
    Also would you all be willing to trade Kemba + 9 to move up? I don't know who else the Knicks would want but I am assuming it would have to include Kemba.

    So are we going to flip him for Lamb because OKC would prefer a non guarantee opposed to Barnes and his $1m buyout? Or do we just save the cap space and cut him?

  14. yasuhara2241 added a post in a topic Batum to Hornets, Hendo + Vonleh to Portland   

    Ok well I could have sworn before this offseason that only MKG and Vonleh would be untouchables. Now Vonleh is gone for Batum. Don't get me wrong I like Batums game but I really felt Vonleh had the potential to be one of the only possible stars on this team with his potential. This has a feeling of panic move to win now and I don't agree with that at all.
    Ok so what does the addition of Lamb, Batum and Hawes going to do with the 9th pick? Do we now go for our project big potential player in Miles Turner or Oubre? Or do we play it safe and go with Kaminsky and be on a never ending treadmill of 7-8 seed.?

  15. yasuhara2241 added a post in a topic Will Hornets make trade on Draft night if so what kind?   

    This draft is so weird for me. Usually I have some preferences but I really can't find any and my mind changes each day. But since we are talking about trades. 
    TRADE BACK
    1. #9 + filler to Boston for James Young + 16. Boston is rumored to want to move up so we move back pick up a nice shooter in James Young and at 16 can load up with either Grant for a PG or another shooter in RJ Hunter. 
    2. #9 + filler to OKC for Lamb + 14. Rumor has it OKC wants to move up. We can get our SG or backup SG and then still be in the lottery to try and get our target player maybe Payne, Decker or Grant.
    STAY
    1. If we decide on not resigning Biz then WCS is my guy. I am a huge fan of his versatility. 
    2. Oubre and Myles Turner are my WTF picks. They are our typical WTF picks that we have and need tons of time to develop and Clifford doesn't play
    3. Booker is my wow we picked a guy everybody thought we were going to pick. I don't see Mario dropping so we get our shooter
    TRADE UP
    1. Just don't see it happening. We don't have the pieces
