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.
