Damn imgaine that: Kyrie, Deng, Thompson, and Cousins. That's a nasty bunch.

Well they will only get 45 games from Kyrie so it won't be that nasty.

If they trade for cousins, we won't have any pick in the draft.

Just what a young, building team needs. Lol.

How is he going to behave when they are in one of their 14 game losing streaks next season?

 

This is exactly what I came in here to say.  With an ego like his and his potential to pout and have tantrums, I'm not sure how well he would fit in with a losing culture in the midst of trying to turn things around.

 

It's not like he brings winning and veteran experience to the table.  Talent, no question, but right now we need the intangibles that I feel he lacks.  My two cents.

Like hell I would trade two firsts for RUN DMC, forget that.

I would give them our 4th overall pick and Ramon Sessions, nothing more than that.

Then we could just sign a back-up point guard in free agency like Nate Robinson, Jose Calderon, or Jarrett Jack.

I like the way you think... Having Nate Robinson back up Kemba (or have him play the 1 and Kemba the 2 off the bench) would be incredible!

Three days ago I would say no thanks.  Is Ewing is definitely an assistant maybe he can serve as a mentor and developer for Cousins.  Think what a huge different Charles Oakley had with Kwame Brown?  The best season of his career was with Oakley on the bench, maybe Ewing could have a similar effect with Cousins.  If this trade went down, like y'all are saying, Kemba, MKG, Biz are not available and this pick and portlands pick...not Detroit. 

 

Another thing to consider...Cho is all about "acquiring assets" in order to build his teams..so don't be surprised if the 'Cats use extra picks for situations just like this. 

 

IMO, it would require an extension and a highly confident Ewing.

I would, he is a solid player that can be great when he matures. That being said not every player matures but I feel he is worth the risk. I would love to get him.

I was semi for it... but after looking at the 2014 draft class... it would be hard to trade away one of those picks...

 

The most I would give up for him is Sessions and this years 1st...

 

I was looking at the draft for next year and with the possibility of three first round picks... I'd rather keep all of them.

 

We could essentially end up with a combination of Andrew Wiggins/Wayne Selden/ and Noah Vonleh... I mean come on...

Step 1: JUST need to sign a back up PG.

Step 2: Eastern Conference FINALS!!

Like we've talked about in other threads, even though the draft class looks good next year, nothing is set in stone and where you'll draft, so you have to think about alternatives.

 

DMC is way talented, but yeah, he has some issues.  But that's the case for a lot of NBA players, it's hard to get around.  The NBA seems to have way more than other sport leagues.   If Clifford and Ewing (if he comes) feel they could turn him around, then I'm for it.  Like others have said, this first and Portland 1st is the most.  I think it's worth the risk of getting a 20-10 player.

Exactly why I've never understood some around here wanting to sign a couple FAs this offseason and essentially become a borderline playoff team. 

 

In one draft (2014), the Hornets will have the potential to draft an entire young nucleus and become OKC.  Not to mention there should still be cap room to add a nice FA to a great young core of 5-6 lottery picks. Stern won't leave MJ out to dry when bringing back the Buzz...there will be a fun, young team with (at least) 1 superstar on it come 2014.
