Horncats interested in Al Jefferson

391 posts in this topic

...and who knows.  Maybe we still get one of Wiggins, Parker, Randle, or Gordon.  I think all 4 of those guys are going to be STARS in this league, and if we land one of them, and have Jefferson along with 2 other 1st rd picks and decent cap space, the Charlotte Hornets will be right back to contending.

 

Kemba

Wiggins

MKG

Zeller

Jefferson

 

Sessions(re-sign)

Henderson

Taylor
Draft Pick/FA

Biyombo

 

Say what you want about the weaknesses of that potential team, but I think it can grow into one of the best in the East.

LOL I told you guys we would go after Al Jefferson because we need a post scorer.

I know my basketball people!

People on this board have been mentioning Jefferson as a possibility before you even started posting in this section...

I saw one report that said we met with big Al as soon as free agency opened last night and may have already made him an offer.

YOLO must be Rod Higgins!

Thanks for the updates on NBA free agents...

So at 28 AL Jefferson will demand a 10-12 mil a year contract. It would be nice if it would be 3-4 years max but I think this is his last big payday so he will probally want 5 years? Not sure..not many free agents jump out this season. Hate to make a splash with bad timiing.

He will be regressing as JJ Hickson is still progressing..and Lebron loves Cam so he will come to Charlotte as he is tired of not paying taxes in Miami.

I havent read that anywhere yet this morning, but that would be great news if true.  We need to go ahead and get our front court setup with Jefferson, Zeller, Biyombo, and Haywood/Thomas.  Work on the backcourt(getting a star player), and depth next season.

I think it would be wise for us to get out in front with Jefferson while the Howard drama unfolds.

The thing that sucks about A- being a smaller market and B- sucking is that we will probably have to be more aggressive with our offer to FAs than other teams (I.e. overpay).

And if you have apps, try "bleacher report". BR does a great and fast job of reporting news. You can keep up with your favorite teams news. As much as some people hates BR, I love it.
