YOLO!

Who should we target in FA?

I'm not sure Hickson would want to be a backup player is the problem.  Landry turned us down last year so not sure he'd want to come this year.

 

Start him over Biyombo.

 

Biyombo would be a great guy to have come off the bench.

Both true. I suppose we could take another shot at Antawn Jamison or see what's going on with Dejaun Blair. Outside of that it's just a bunch of guys that haven't played much or well the past few years. Basically some scratch off lottery tickets.

Well if you look at our active roster, here is how it looks...

 

PG: Kemba Walker, Ramon Sessions

SG: Ben Gordon, Tony Daniels

SF: Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Jeff Taylor, 

PF: Cody Zeller, Jeff Adrien, Tyrus Thomas

C: Bismack Biyombo, Brendan Haywood

 

This team is obviously still in rebuilding mode, so I wouldn't amnesty Tyrus Thomas until next year to clear cap space. The only player that I would cut is Jeff Adrien.

 

We need to sign a starting shooting guard, a backup small forward, a back up power forward, and a starting center...

 

I could see something like this

 

PG: Kemba Walker, Ramon Sessions

SG: J.R. Smith (FA), Ben Gordon, Tony Daniels

SF: Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Kyle Korver (FA), Jeff Taylor

PF: Cody Zeller, Josh McRoberts (FA), Tyrus Thomas

C: J.J. Hickson, Bismack Biyombo, Brendan Haywood

 

I also imagine we're going to extend the qualifying offer to Henderson, and I don't think he'll get anything crazy in FA. So I would think he's either starter or backup at shooting guard.

I'm not sure they are ready to put Biz on the "coming off the bench" role.  I bet they go with him starting, especially paired with Zeller who is more offensive.  We'll see.

 

I'd rather sign Hendo back than bring in JR Smith though.

It was reported earlier in the year that Detroit is really high on Henderson.

If Psycho T is signed I will never support the Hornets..this would make me shun the Hornets until he left..

I never seen a guy who had such a punchable face.

Oh nooezzzz!!!

I'd love to have big T here. I love hustle and heart and he's got enough for all 5 guys on the court. Would be a great pick up by the brass.

I would go with resign Hendo and Mcbob...I still like Mullens who just needs a coach to say stop shooting 3's when it is not an automatic shot for you!

Getting Gortat to go with Zellar with Biyombo off the bench would be a crazy seemingly attainable dream

If you could sign Korver or Poindexter from for outside shooting than..wow I just made this team win the championship...just kidding.

So if we re-sign folks and don't pick anybody else up before opening night next year...

 

PG - Kemba

SG - Henderson

SF - Kidd-Gilchrist

PF - Cody Zeller

C   - Bismack Biyombo

 

Not the worst starting 5 in the division, much less the league.

not a bad zone D, right?

 

they all need to keep working to improve, but this lineup in a few years as vets could be be pretty damn good.

    • Elbows too pointy. Would not bang.
    • On the surface this team seems greatly improved but in reality we added a geriatric at DE and SS. Our LT is bad enough that the Vikings thought getting Remmers in return was an upgrade, and our greatly improved offense includes a rookie RB who dominated the 5th best college conference and a hybrid RB/WR who isn't good enough to stick at either position. That being said, I'm hopeful it works out.
    • First, let me say that I pretty much only watch the NBA during the playoffs (or when I'm absolutely bored and channel surfing, which is very very seldom). I am really a fan of players and coaches and not necessarily teams except for the Spurs. That being said, I do support the Hornets as they are a North Carolina team---the "home" team, if you will.  The problem is I don't see any way that they will credibly compete for a championship (because they really haven't come close in franchise history). Gone are the days of Grand Ma Ma and Dell Curry, but even then one would be hard pressed to really believe. Unless they happen to draft a legitimate, and I mean legitimate, superstar that wants to be here, I can't see it. I go from year to year in June saying "Perhaps this is the year," but reality sets in during December.  Well, perhaps this is the year that they at least become credible. Monk was arguably the best pure shooter in the draft. Can he create his own shot---break 'em down and break some ankles to be a legitimate point guard or 2-guard? We will see. Bacon may be underrated. We will see. Does the other Superman in Charlotte have enough juice to make a credible run and get the Hornets over the hump. I don't know.  It's just hard to believe that the Hornets will actually become truly relevant when you look at their history, and that has to really suck as a hardcore fan.
