JJ Hickson is another high energy player. Great skill set around the rim to. He doesn't make much money. I wonder what kinda deal we could work out for him, considering he'd play a much larger role here than in Portland.

I don't like that they want to force the whole Bismack center thing. I wish they make

him a PF and bring in a Center who can score.

I actually prefer Biz at Center and feel like they shouldn't force him to be PF. He doesn't have the range to be a PF and I think he does better guarding on the block against Centers. There are only a handful of Centers he has problems with but he was a rookie last year so I think he can improve.

I like the idea of Hickson, Ersan Ilvasova(bucks), Jason Thompson (RF from Kings) or Jamison to help teach

If we do think Biz is a PF my realistic Center choices are Spencer Hawes (unlikely), Hamed Haddadi, Memphis Grizzlies or take a flyer on top pick busts like Hasheem Thabeet or Greg Oden(if healthy).

Hickson, Biyombo, TNT?'

Two out of three isn't bad.

On top of that Hickson is still very young and would be a great piece to add at the power foward position to create a one-two punch with Biyombo.

In no way has J.J reached his full potential either.

Biz has a lot of range and quick feet to guard PF. He would also be a mismatch for most

PF on the offensive end. He's best position would be PF where his wingspan and

explosive hops would give him a advantage most nights. Playing against 7'0 footers

gets him mostly in foul trouble.

I have been reading that everyone will be shocked if Hickson signs anywhere other than Golden State.

If I'm Hickson, I would think the Bobcats would be the place to go.

- He would probably just get a two year deal, so if we still suck in three years he can bail

- He would be close to home

- He would probably start

- He would have the chance to be a big part of the future of this franchise

Pro's and Cons of signing with the Warriors

- He is a sub

- He has a chance to go to the playoffs

- He probably receives less money

- He is not a huge part of the Warriors franchise.

    • You would think, after years of childish behavior by many politicians that THIS is now the time to start "adulting" in DC. Maybe my gerrymandered district is about to get hit and made more competitive?  Or the demographics show my white, conservative base shrinking over the next decade?  Regardless, this is a great time to start reaching across the aisle to give those independent voters something to think about. Given that Bernie is going to throw out a universal coverage law, this might put a little motivation on the right to do some fixing to Obamacare instead of going full "socialist" with Universal Heathcare (how turrrrribbble!!).  Sometimes, you have to pick your battles, and what we've seen thus far is Trump's battles stink.
    • Based on that article, it seems that a sale will only be made if the buyer agrees to not move the team out of Charlotte. I hope that holds up.
