I posted this over at BP, but considering we apparently were interested in another PG (Dragic), the Suns removed their QO from Aaron Brooks two days ago. I was a fan of his after I read about him in Slam while he was at Oregon. A couple of years ago, he was blowing up and seemed like the "future of the franchise" for Houston.

Then, after the Martin trade and several other moves, it's like he just fell off. Kyle Lowery seemed like a tweener-scrub at the time, and somehow ended up taking the starting job from Brooks. Then Brooks was traded to the Suns and I think he played in China after the lockout last year. Haven't heard any positive news about him recently, but from what I remember, he was an awesome player as the starting PG with the Rockets.

What do you all think?

Read somewhere that Dwight is close to being a Net. The deal involves Cleveland, Orlando, and Brooklyn.

It doesn't matter what he wants though, it matters what the Hornets want.

Just because the Hornets choose to match Phoenix, doesn't mean he has to re-sign with New Orleans.

Because they're going by the book, as Draft night proved. You took the 2nd hypest rated player on almost everyone's boards, and nothing else. Hooray! How creative...not.

Let's be real, who in their right mind would want to come play for the worst team in the league, forget the fact that it's a small market team? You would literally have to overpay people to come here. Even people off the street wouldn't want to play for Jordan. Those are just the sad facts.

The only way we will become relevant, is by drafting superstar players.

I would play for MJ for league minimum. Just sayin!

Hickson would have a reason to. He's young and has plenty of time to turn into an old scrub chasing a title with a contender. He can play for a sorry ass team like us and put up big numbers in the meantime while being a starter and help us rebuild.

But alas, we'll probably just sit out the FA period and end up signing some scrub ass D-Leaguers to MAtt Carroll-style contracts to reach the cap floor.

This is frustrating.

But it does mean he is under contract with the Hornets for the next 4 years
