Yeah, this team has made some dumb moves over the years but this is easily in the top 3 worse moves they have made.  And depending on how he plays next season, it could end up being the worst.

Yeah man, the last I watched him closely was in summer league with the Pacers, and he looked great there...  but, that was summer league and years ago.

Considering the amount of years and salary we gave up (Hawes was expiring, and Hibbert was either expiring or 1 remaining year), to bring in a guy who can hardly get on the floor and is making ridiculous money for a lot more years...  i'm calling it right now...  this is the WORST move in franchise history, or at the very least underneath Cho's direction.  It hamstrings us for years going forward and he can't contribute.

If it doesn't get him fired then fans should show the franchise how we feel. Settling for mediocre teams and bad team management should not be tolerated by the fans. Marvin who (love my Tar Heels but a bad signing)? Roy who? Marco "the Roman Emperor" Belinelli....hero? MKG..........clank. Batum and Kemba were out there playing 2 on 5 most of the year. Cho is a terrible GM, and has no idea how to spot talent. I do not blame Steve Clifford simply because nobody could coach this team to above an 8 seed at best.

Morrison was a terrible draft pick but the Plumlee trade is 100 times worse.  In Morrison we were getting a college player who we were expecting to be at worse a good NBA player.  But with no NBA experience, there was a chance he would be a bust.  He was.  In Plumlee we knew what we were getting, a mediocre NBA player making $12.5 Million per year for the next 4 years.  Roy HIbbert's contract expired at the end of this season and Spencer Hawes had a $6 Million player option for next season.  That would have least given the team some maneuverability this off season.  As it is now, we are $11 Million over the salary cap for next season.

I don't even hate the Morrison pick.   It didn't work out, but let's be honest, they had no choice but to take him.   He dominated college and like others said, at worst I saw him being a good 6th man to come in and score.   I don't think anyone would have guessed he would have been that terrible.   And at least that pick didn't crush the cap.     I think we made way worse draft picks than Morrison, like DJ over Brooks, etc.

The Plumlee trade definitely is probably a top-3 screw up by this team.  

This team is just cursed.   The bad choices, the bad picks.   The terrible luck (Pelicans cheating and stealing the Brow from us lol), Morrison being so bad, Tyrus Thomas just disappearing (dude was a beast the year before),  Stephenson being so bad (never thought it would be THAT bad).    This team just has no chance.  Jordan should be sell, fate hates him.     I think the universe is like, "you won 6 titles and are the best NBA player ever, that's ENOUGH" and won't let him have a good team.

    • I am as big of a Cam fan as there is, but no he's not perfect. BUT, I will say, in his defense, a good deal of his shortcomings are due in part to offensive scheme and design.  You brought up Brady, whose offense is designed around getting the ball out quick and with timing and letting the receivers make plays.  The biggest complaint on this board since Chud left has been the lack of quick hitting, easy completions created by short, quick routes.  And while I see a lot of articles now about how Cam lacks accuracy on short and intermediate routes, and has ranked as the league worst, at least in 2016, he didn't struggle with such issues under Chud.  Our screens were a lot crisper for one and the routes were more varied and creative.  Furthermore, the last two or three seasons' decline in short and intermediate accuracy coincides with having a receiving corps among the leagues worst in getting separation.  Now, we draft two guys that are quick, fast and can get open in a hurry and overhauled the receiving corps with Shepard and Johnson as well.  I think people are going to see the accuracy problem was more due to scheme and personnel than it was Cam.  If healthy, he's going to have a ridiculous year.
