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.

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


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.

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

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.

Dumbest statement ever made on here, get out with the casualness of not knowing MKG was the teams second most important player last season.

I put MKG ahead of Kemba. Without MKG 103 PP100p, with MKG 93 pp100p. Huge difference and elite defense combined with the fact he's the only player allowed to go off script and go after offense boards = 2nd mip.

He literally single handily turns the starting lineup from one of the worst defenses in the NBA to a top defensive unit.

Casualness lmao? Usually when the game was on the line he was on the bench. I have nothing against him he's just not a starting SF on a team looking to make the next step. If he drastically improves his shooting then that's another thing but his defender plays so far off of him it closes driving lanes for others.

His defensive impact is elite and the keystone of the team and that more then makes up for his limitations on offense

I'd be fine with #9 and Henderson for Young.

 

That trade only takes up two of the $20 million dollars we have in cap space.

 

Here's just a mock team

 

Sign Kirk Hinrich for $6 million, Lance Stephenson for $10 million

Re-sign CDR and Tolliver

 

Kemba Walker, Kirk Hinrich (sign), Russ Smith (draft)

Lance Stephenson (sign), Jeff Taylor, Gary Neal

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Cleanthony Early (draft), Chris Douglas Roberts

Thaddeus Young, Cody Zeller, Anthony Tolliver

Al Jefferson, Bismack Biyombo, Brendan Haywood

 

I know some people aren't a fan of Stephenson but he's the best shooting guard available and with the right coaching he should be fine.

In a lot of ways security is money for a guy like Mcroberts.  He's not a big time star with years of fat paychecks to look forward to, hes a 27 year old role player coming off the best statistical season of his career. This is his first (and quite possibly last) real chance to lock up a nice long term, guaranteed deal.

 

This season was only the 3rd time in his career he played more than 20 minutes/ game, so i think he realizes what a great opportunity this is to make some serious money before his best basketball playing days are over

Personally, I just think he's trying to capitalize on a good season.

Does McBob want to be in Charlotte, probably. Does that mean he won't leave, absolutely not.

McBob is a good player but he's not $5M good.

Power forward is definitely a position we need to upgrade. So if that means trading Zeller or moving on McBob then so be it because both players are currently back ups in this league.

McBob masks so many of Kemba's deficiencies as a distributor. He is needed.
