Trades -

Ben Gordan for a bad Contract and a future first round draft pick

Resign's/Cut's/Walks

- Resign McRoberts

- Amnesty Thomas

- Let Henderson, Mullens, Pargo, Williams and Diop walk

Free Agency -

Sign J.J Hickson to a 4 year 44 million dollar deal.

Sign Tyreke Evens to a 5 year 58 Million dollar deal

2013 NBA Draft

Norleans Noel

2 deep Line up would be

Walker/Sessions

Evans/Taylor

MKG/Adrien

Hickson/McRoberts

Bismack/Noel

Bismack and Noel split time fairly evenly.

Team would be really nasty on defense, has a low post presence in Hickson and low post defense with Noel and Bismack. Evans and Kemba gives the team two guys who can break defenders down and create shots and scoring chances when the team needs it. Would have good bench scoring with good ball movement for a lot of three point chances. All the additions are young players who fit with Charlotte's youth movement and would be able to grow together.

Add the 2-3 draft picks in the 2014 draft and that's the team nucleus for the next 6-7 years.

I don't understand the thought of getting good FA this offseason. We would just put ourselves into a limbo of one and done in the playoffs.

My Offseason:

1. Resign McRoberts

2. Resign Hendo

3. Not sure about Mullens yet. Wouldn't care either way

4. Try to trade Ben Gordons expiring

5. Draft Noel

6. Dont amnesty Tyrus. He will be a good trade asset in 2014 offseason or season because of the large expiring. Or we can amnesty him before that season.

7. Suck for 2014! We will probably have top 5 (our pick) and two other picks around the 10 and 13 area

We have to make some changes now so we can get more fans in the seats. While I agree it may not be the best time right NOW, something has to give or who knows if this team will be around much longer. If we can lock up a younger(ish) big it would still be worth it.

My Ideal Off-season:

Resign/Walk

- resign Josh McRoberts

- resign Jannero Pargo

- walk Gerald Henderson (only resign if he takes 5.5 mil or less)

- walk Byron Mullens

-walk Reggie Williams

- Amnesty Tyrus Thomas

- walk Ben Gordon

- walk Gana Diop

Draft: ( we are only getting 1 pick)

Ben McLemore- Great shooter who can pass and rebound. Fits Very well with Kemba and MKG

FA:

sign- Paul Millsap

sign- Nikola Pekovic

sign- Anthony Morrow

sign- Brandon Rush

Line-up

PG- Kemba, Sessions, Pargo

SG- McLemore, Morrow, Brandon Rush

SF- MKG, Taylor

PF- Millsap, Biz, Jeff Adrian

C- Pekovic, McRoberts, Haywood

If we could get all those guys, wow! Playoffs!

Not likely though.

Love Millsap and Pekovic. Pek is very underrated. A great big that wins in the paint constantly.

Like it a lot!

I think we need an upgrade at SG. Hendo is not the long term answer. Either it's McLemore or Evans Id be very happy.

If Wiggins, Parker or Randle do really live up to the hype, we have to suck one more season. Cho has to in order for us to succeed in the future. Great teams build to win Championships, not playoffs games.

If we only add more mediocre talents to this team in 2013-2014 and start winning 30+ games we'll only be rebuilding again 3-4 yrs from now.

We can be a serious threat in the NBA 2-3 yes from now with a team that consists Kemba, MKG, Biz, McLemore/Noel, and Wiggins/Parker/Randle.

Scenario (1)

2013: Nerlens Noel

2014: Andrew Wiggins / Jabari Parker

PG: Kemba

SG: Andrew Wiggins

SF: MKG

PF: Noel

C : Biz

Scenario (2)

2013: Ben McLemore

2014: Julius Randle

PG: Kemba

SG: McLemore

SF: MKG

PF: Julius Randle

C : Biz

You choose. Can't go wrong with either one.

Rebrand to Charlotte Hornets

Sign Kemba to long-term extension

Re-sign Henderson and McRoberts

Sign Millsap

Draft Noel

I pretty much agree with this 100%.

Kemba/Sessions

Hendo

MKG/Taylor

Milsap/McRoberts

Noel/Biz

Milsap would give a good PnR option for Kemba and help free the offense. I don't want us to add much, however, because we need to be a pretty mediocre team for the 2014 draft with great players such as Wiggins, Parker, Randle, and Gordon.

Even if Charlotte had the worst record in the NBA they still wouldn't get a top 2-3 pick in that draft, they'd get screwed by the lotto system and WWW again. They'd end up picking 4th. lol

I don't expect a Randle, Wiggins or Parker type player here in Charlotte while the NBA has a draft lotto system and WWW has the control that he has with who goes where and what teams can get what.

It's a deep draft though with plenty of good players in it, which is why I think the team should go for it this season and build a deep team. Unless they make the playoff's they'll keep the pick they owe Chicago and most likely get the picks from Detroit and Portland. That's 3 picks in the top 14 of a really deep draft.

Ending up after the 2014 draft with a team looking like this

Walker/Smart

Evans/Harris

MKG/Taylor/Adrien

Hickson/Bismack/McRoberts

Noel/Hammons

IMO, in the east that's a 4 or 5 seed that could win a couple playoff series.

Don't do anything to be competitive next year. Sucks for fans to see another year of terrible basketball, but it needs to be done.

agree'd

Take Noel and sit him like half the year till he's definitely 100%, continue to tank

1) Re-brand to the Charlotte Hornets of course

2) I see we have one draft pick, and I hope we draft (PF) Anthony Bennett.

3) Do not sign Henderson or McBob

4) Re-sign Mullens(I still have hopes he will become a good player)

Go into the season with something like this. We have got to suck again for the 2014 draft.

PG - Walker, Sessions

SG - Gordon, Williams

SF - MKG, Taylor

PF - Bennett , Mullens , Thomas

C - Biyombo, Haywood

Then we have a lot of money coming off the books, a few 1st round picks, and a nucleus of Kemba Walker, MKG, and Bennett to build around. Probably should throw in Taylor and Biyombo as well.

Win the lottery and then trade down for players and or picks in next year's draft. Take Bennett with our lower first round pick. Sign Milsap, extend Henderson and bring back the Hornets logo and colors.
