Depending on the type of offseason we are having (whether we go big or stay with the course), I would love to have J.R. Smith on our roster. He might be the only shooting guard that I would take over Henderson.

 

If we're serious about competing now, give me Smith and Jefferson...

 

PG: Kemba Walker, Ramon Sessions

SG: J.R. Smith, Ben Gordon

SF: Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Jeff Taylor, Jeff Adrien

PF: Al Jefferson, Bismack Biyombo, Byron Mullens, Tyrus Thomas

C: Alex Len, Brendan Haywood, Josh McRoberts

 

Then the following year trade our two futures (Portland & Detroit) to move into the top five and select one of Andrew Wiggins, Jabari Parker, Julius Randle, or Marcus Smart.

 

I know it's not very realistic, but if anyone can make it happen; it's Cho.

 

Thought Smith was re-signing with Knicks on four year deal

I don't think they are going to give him the money he wants.

Chances are we amnesty Tyrus Thomas, I see us resigning Gerald Henderson before we try to get JR Smith, and there is no way anyone with a top 4 pick trades their pick to us or anyone else in next years draft.

No doubt. Wouldn't suprise me if we traded Kemba, traded our #4 pick for Bosh, and he left in a year, and Jordan decided to make the new Hornets colors Carolina blue and neon green.

Sadly, I could see that happening :(

Except he's shooting 16.5 ppg and 7 rebounds.  12 ppg in the playoffs. 

 

I thought it was obvious but I'll include the fact that he's a 3rd option on a team with 2 other Hall of Famers, so, yeah, his numbers WILL be down.

Tell me why he is not a max player.
Eric Gordon got a max contract last offseason and he's definitely not as important an asset as Bosh. Bosh still got about 10 good years left to play.

Im not saying he wont get a max contract. He just doesnt deserve it IMO. I wouldnt pay him max money to be a Hornet.

It is what it is. He was the only offensive weapon in toronto and took all yhe shots. He was never a superstar in my eyes. If he could d up true PFs i might agree. He soft

I'll take Monroe or Cousins in 2014.

PG: Kemba
SG: Wiggins / Parker
SF: MKG / Taylor
PF: Monroe / Biz
C : Alex Len

Still, I don't know if we'd be competitive enough to contend for a Championship. Playoffs, sure. Unless, Kemba improves his passing game with the talents around him, we see a vast improvement from MKG, Len is dominant in the paint, and Wiggins or Parker do live up to the hype I just don't know if we're anything more than the Pacers this year.

Greg Monroe more than likely won't see free agencey as the Pistons will work out an extension with him next season.

 

Cousins is more realistic, but Sacremento has recently retracted any comments making him available.  I personally think we have a better shot of landing Derrick Williams, but I am not too high on him myself.

 

And with regards to your Pacers comparison.  They are an organization that we should try to model ourselves after.  If you would be disappointed in ONLY reaching game 7 of the conference finals and expect "Championship or Bust" then you greatly need to temper your expectations for the near future as we have a long road to go.

He's definitely soft, but he can also rebound, so that's kind of confusing.  I think he needs to be with a more defensive presence down low.  He'd still be a superstar here since he would take all the shots lol.
