    These FAs are fuging horrible.  Floor full of scrubs and the only contract guy on with them is PJ and these dumbasses looked him off about four possessions in a row.   Pisses me the fug off.  You are fuging summer league bodies, give the ball to a guy who can actually do something with it. 
    Also, cobb is a fuging bum.  Might even be worse than Wallace. 
    Shots are finally falling for PJ, and he's looking like what I expected from him. 
    MKG on the bench today too... 
    Qvale might have the worst hands I have ever seen... 
     
    Also, we should not leave Orlando without Harrison under contract.

    Mo Williams just signed with the Cavs...   There went our sign and trade option.

    Summer league would be a lot more fun for me to watch as a Hornets fan if we didn't consistently field the shittiest roster each year.  We probably have the least NBA experience of all teams in the Orlando SL, and even if that isn't true, we definitely have the least talent cumulatively.   I'm so tired of watching scrubs like Wallace, Randleman, and Murphy trying to show everyone what they have at the expense of our actual roster guys. 
    And although I think Harrison may have earned himself a roster spot here, he too is guilty of trying to take over at the expense of the easier/better play.   I have no idea how many times Harrison completely looked off Frank running the pick and roll, in favor of a bad shot he forced inside.  Thankfully, Harrison started hitting those shots and making the right decision down the stretch but, it's plays like that that kill our offense, both in SL and in the regular season. 
     
    All that being said, man...   I'm really disappointed in PJ.  My belief in him has been based off of his natural scoring ability, shooting, and athleticism from college.  Those things combined usually make for an easy transition to the pros, scoring wise.  But, he does not look like the same player here.  He is great at creating shots, but they just aren't falling.  It's just weird...  He had moments last season, but I expected him to dominate this summer league with that pro experience under his belt now.  Maybe it's mental, but man, it is certainly discouraging so far. 
    Also, Frank looks like a baller.  Credit to MJ on that one.   His presence makes a huge difference on the pick and roll... 
     
    Now trade AL.

    Yes.  I can't wait...   I love the SL.  I've watched it every year, and always will, as imo, this period between the NBA Finals and training camp is the WORST time of year in sports.

    Don't know if this would be better in this thread or the FA rumors one, but Woj just tweeted that we have been open to doing a sign and trade for Mo, being that we technically still own his FA rights with the cap hold.
     
    I could definitely see us using this to leverage something we'd like...  And we wouldn't have to use our MLE in the process.

    Belinelli Agress to 3 year, $19 million contract with Kings
    LOL...  After taxes in Cali, that is probably equal to or less than our MLE.

    Nah, if they want Curry, which they do, they'll hold the space to sign him. 
     
    The thing that scares the pics out of me about that, more than the doomsday scenarios you all have posted above, is what if he signs mega extension well before he even reaches FA?  Talk about a let down...  Just look at this forum.  We know we suck at drafting so we most likely aren't gonna get a superstar through that, and how many different threads have we had here about bringing Steph home?  It shows that our fanbase knows we have been a poorly run organization for most, if not all, of our history, we don't trust our FO to find a star on their own, nor do we trust them to leverage one here because of our history of ineptitude, so we put all of our hopes into Steph coming to save us due to the sentimentality of it being home.  That is the sad truth.  And I admit, I will be crushed beyond crushed if he never even gets to the open market for us to have a chance.
     
    All that being said, i believe (and very much hope) that he will NOT sign an extension before his contract is up because it is in his (and every other star) best interest to maximize their earnings.  And the only way to do that is have multiple bidders.

    Sorry for all the typos in the above post explaining my reasoning as to why he could be the go to scorer in response to teeray...   My phone and the new huddle layout has not been cooperating, and apparently neither is my auto correct.

    Ladies and gentlemen, this will be exactly how Biz's career plays out.   Watch.

    I believe, if given the pt, he will absolutely be.  He would have to either start or get the 6th man minutes.  And that goes for here or anyone else.   He has to be "the guy" when he's on the floor.   But,  considering we have Batum now, I'm not thinking best case scenario is 6th man.
    He is a go to scorer, it's a matter if the team treats him as such.  He showed glimpses last year, especially defensively...  He had some spectacular highlights there.  But, considering some of the things that happened last season off the court, he could very well take all of that great ability and inexplicably be wasting it away dropping 35 a game in a euro league after his rookie contract is up,if he doesn't tighten up off court. 
    But alas, I think I'm wasting my breath anyway.   Summarily, he needs minutes and needs to be fed the ball to get in a rhythm.  But unfortunately, I don't see either of those happening under Clifford.  I hope I'm wrong, but with us acquiring Batum, Lamb, and going after Bellineli, I think PJ already is being written off by the staff.
