Hornets Expected To Target Arron Afflalo and Jameer Nelson (Also News On McBob and Big Al)

Is dumping Hendo an option? I like him, but you can't justify his contract with such inconsistent play. I really think we'd get the same production from CDR, but don't really want either, or Neal, as a starter.

I don't think hendo is undumppable.  But I do think he is a much, much better defender than CDR.

So if we are picking up Affalo then who are we getting rid of/not resigning?

What about not getting the Detroit pick this year and then using it as trade bait? A top 1 protected pick for next year should have pretty good value this year.

Listened to the interview today and they are expecting MKG to work his but off this summer to develop an outside shot. they are well aware needing to address the backup PG.

no, I read it right. You don't give up a first for any of these guys no matter the circumstances.

18ppg on 45% and 42% from three...

Afflalo is worth a late first round pick, end of discussion.

I like Afflalo and would be happy to have him. With that being said, I would be happier to use that Detroit pick and pay ~4 million more per year for Gordon Hayward.

Getting a good SG improves the whole team a lot. Kemba especially. At the cost of a late first rounder, why not?

Why is that? Not trying to be condescending, seriously wanting your opinion.

 

I think Hayward gives us a better ballhandler, better passing, and better at creating in isolation situations. Not to mention he has better size and already has experience with Big Al, plus the whole part about him being 24 with room to improve whereas Afflalo is 29 and likely has peaked in his career arch.

 

Again, I'm a fan of Afflalo. He's a deadeye shooter and that would help this team. I just prefer Hayward over him, even if it means trading more and giving up more money.

Affalo has actually been the top scorer for a team and avg. More points then Hayward. Not to mention cheaper.

I'd rather just bring Sessions back for cheaper and we may never see what Zeller can do if McBob hangs around.

 

Also if Chicago has to get rid of Taj Gibson to make a run at Melo I'd love to inquire about landing him.

So much so that he was willing to rationalize the trade of Kony Ealy to the Patriots, which essentially netted him a second-round pick eight slots higher than the third-round pick they included in the swap. "It's a heavy draft and it was an opportunity for us to move up. To you guys, eight spots doesn't seem like much. But to me, it's gold," Gettleman said, via the Charlotte Observer.   Scout's Notebook: Cam must evolve as QB   Free Agency's biggest unanswered storylines   Harrison: All-Under-25 Team   Brandt: Best second-round picks since '12   MJD: Ranking the '17 RB prospects   Players who won free agency   Brooks: Peterson 'just another' RB now   Schein: Each division's favorite, top contender   Rosenthal Why is everyone ignoring Big Ben?   Scouting Report/team fits: Malik Hooker He added: "You've got to give up something to get something. You're not fooling anybody anymore. There's too much film available. We just wanted to move up and get another second-round pick. I think it gives us more flexibility." This was, on the front end, a nice way for Gettleman to distance himself from Ealy without criticizing the dynamic former second-round pick, though it does put the fearless general manager in a precarious position. Rationalizing a trade to move up eight slots suggests there is someone in particular who you are targeting and expect to be there. At the least, it suggests that one of a few people you hope are there can contribute right away significantly. Ealy was not a perfect player, but his ability to get to the quarterback was undeniable. If the Panthers had won Super Bowl 50, there's a chance Ealy would have been named MVP despite playing just a handful of snaps. Carolina already got rid of one exceptional homegrown defensive talent in Josh Norman last year and could see Ealy come back to bite them inside the Patriots' versatile front. Of course, Gettleman isn't afraid of what anyone thinks and has done a nice job getting the Panthers under control since taking over the gig in 2013. He has plenty of equity built up with the Panthers' fan base, but a home run with that second-round pick couldn't hurt. "
