McRoberts turns down player option, will become Free Agent

There is reason to carry two young power forwards unless you trade Zeller, which would be foolish unless you are packaging him up with other players to acquire a big name player.

I am tentative to re-sign McRoberts because I don't know if he can get any better than he already is. He's a solid player but the way the team is currently built, we need a power forward that plays the same type of game as McRoberts but is a better scorer.

Pau Gasol is a option but he's old and plays no defense.

I can't remember who brought it up, but I'd love to acquire Thaddeus Young from Philadelphia.

Maybe something around Henderson and #24 for Thaddeus Young and and #32.

Remember the last time he signed here he took less money bc he felt like is was really wanted here. Jordan has expressed over the season how important he was to the team so I don't think we have to be the highest bidder.

Philly would never do that, unfortunately.

We are also most likely stuck with Henderson's 6 million a season.

Who would want Hendo

He may just want long-term security.  I'd love to bring him back at around the same price for 3-4 years

So with McBob declining the option, here is what the current roster looks like.

PG: Kemba Walker ($3,452,183M)

SG: Gerald Henderson (6M), Gary Neal ($3,250,000M)

SF: Michael Kidd-Gilchrist ($5,016,960M), Jeff Taylor ($915,243K)

PF: Cody Zeller ($4,030,560M)

C: Al Jefferson ($13.5M), Bismack Biyombo ($4,086,453M), Brendan Haywood ($2,000,000M)

The cap for the 2014-15 has risen and is expected to be at $63.2M meaning the Hornets would have $20,948,601M in cap space.

Realistically we need a starting caliber shooting guard and power forward as well as a back up small forward and back up point guard.

Backup SF? We need a starting SF lol

I know people aren't going to like this but I would not be surprised if he was replaced by Pau Gasol.

That would be the smartest route to go. A Gasol/Jefferson duo would be straight up nasty!

Gasol has a good 2 years left in the tank.

Depends how you build the roster.

MK masks a lot of our teams defensive woes. Unless you sign LBJ, there isn't a player other than Luol Deng who fits what we need at the small forward position.

Sign him for two year than let Zeller take over.

I don't think security is an issue. I think money is.

When we re-signed him this past year he said he'll be back if the price is right... that pretty much told me he is looking to get paid.

No way they would accept that. Thaddeus is 10x the player Henderson is and moving up 8 spots wouldn't matter much to philly

It would have to be the 9 plus hendo for Young. Main reason it's so high id because of the value difference between Hendo and Young. Since I'm not fond of the options at 9, it wouldn't bother me.
