Hornets sign Brian Roberts

We can clear additional cap space if we really want Stephenson. This board is pure comedy.

Pretty sure we can still pay 12-14 this year. We had 23mil open after the pieces fell into place. 7 for Williams, 3 for Roberts.

13? Lightly back load so he gets 15 next year.

Not the end of the world guys.....

I swear, some people here just overreact for the sake of overreacting.

There's literally been no movement or offers made to Lance's camp since he got the offer from the Pacers. If we really didn't care about making one more splash worth 10 million or so, we would have went the more expensive Hinrich route.

This is a nice value signing.

exactly.  If we sign Lance, we deal Hendo and his 6 mill salary.  He'd be a good

man off the bench for a team with a young SG.   Nobody wants him, so we'd have

to sweeten the deal, possibly a draft pick, but Cho can get rid of him somehow and

give us an extra 6 mill.  That's all we need to sign Lance.

Now factor in $3 to $4 for our draft picks.

Roberts, a former Dayton Flyers’ standout, averaged 9.4 points, 3.3 assists and 1.9 rebounds per game while shooting 42.0% from the floor, 36.0% from beyond the arc and 94.0% from the free throw last season. He played in 72 games and made 42 starts, filling in for the injured Jrue Holiday. Over his two-year career, he has averaged 8.2 points, 3.0 assists and 1.6 rebounds per game while shooting 41.8% from the field, 37.2% from three and 92.9% from the charity stripe.

 

 

 

I like it, he's got room to grow.

Just because you trade Henderson doesn't mean you get rid of his $6 mil. I'm pretty sure there are no $6 mil non guaranteed contracts out there. When you trade him, salary will be coming back.

    • Is this dude a real life person or an alt of @GOOGLE JIM BOB COOTER that is a living joke exemplifying the white culture thread? 
    • lol no one takes him seriously. He gets a courage award for bringing his hand-me-down  dad-politics into ttb while still asking to himself, "what does ttb mean again?"
    • I'm extremely pumped by this addition. It has to be the biggest addition since the team came back to Charlotte. I was too young to follow the original talented Hornets (Im sad), so I'm not going back that far. People and fans can say what they want about D12, but the man still have a lot left in his tank. And, Im tired of hearing how he doesnt fit in today's game anymore. There are only a handfull of big men today that I can really say, can shoot the ball: Davis, Towns, Embiid, Cousins and Aldridge.  Howard can still dominate! That's all that matters. The only neg I will give Howard is that I do see a lack of desire/effort to play at times. But, I believe MJ can help motivate him back to being a dominant big man again for next two years here.  Dwight Howard averaged a double-double last season: 13.5 ppg, 12.7 rpg, 1.2 bpg, and 1.4 apg.  D12 had "53", I said FIFTY-THREE double doubles last season. He had six games where he averaged 20 rebounds or more.  Guess who was the last Bobcats/Hornets era to even come close to that number.....Emeka Okafor in 2004 as a rookie with 47 double doubles (35.6 MPG). Then Big Al had 42 in 2013 (35.0 MPG). Howard did that while averaging 29.7 min per game. If you count out his 2014 season where he only played in 41 games, last season was the LEAST amount of minutes played per game in Howard's career.  Only three guys (Towns, Whiteside and Gobert) averaged more double doubles than Howard in 2016. And only four other guys ( Whiteside, Drummond, DJordan and Gobert) averaged more RPG than Howard last season. Other than Towns, none of those guys mentioned above can really shoot the ball any better than Howard. But, teams still want them on their teams for big contracts.    D12 will be a beast this upcoming season!
