i might give them a B just for offering hayward max money.

 

in any case, i would never put too much emphasis on anybody's grades.  these are like NFL draft grades.  nobody really knows until at least a good chunk of the reg season has passed.  from a "what could be" perspective i don't think the hornets could have done much better for themselves beyond keeping mcbob.  however, i feel marvin will fill in well in his place as a solid veteran presence.

Was this done before we signed Lance?

No after Lance, but if you read through the article, he later says the Hornets are one of three teams with shockingly realistic chances at the east crown.

Yeah I'm not sure what else we could have done.

 

It was one of the rare times a team did what I wanted them to do in FA, and most experts picked us before even the draft to be going after Lance.  So we do it, and get a steal (Vonleh) and a good risk player (PJ) in the first.  Sign Williams too and also get a good deal on Brian Roberts to backup Kemba.

B means they did good. We'll see how it translates to the W/L record.

Only reason it is a B is the potential of Stephenson being a distracted version of himself.

If not it will be an A++ with two gold stars.

That and the fact that I think everyone sees that Vonleh will not contribute for a few seasons.

I'd go A-. Of course it could turn higher, but we just don't know now.

If our rookies are formidable (and not in jail.) Then I'm starting to think 2.

Marvin Williams is not an A signing but with Stephenson it makes that signing make perfect sense.

Wonder if Utah didnt match would it be possible to get both Lance and Gordon.. the 2and 3 would be seriously upgraded. Prob not.
