Horncats interested in Al Jefferson

391 posts in this topic

Remember though, Jefferson weighs a lot more than Garnett; so it's much harder for him to get up and down the court. Four more years of a consistent double-double player isn't too much to ask though, you just don't want to overpay him. If you overpay, you set the rebuilding process back further (see Tyrus Thomas).

Actually, 4 years of double-double is pretty hard to ask in this franchise. Just saying. And I wouldn't compare Jefferson with TNT. I think this would be a really good move and not one which is going to set us back. We really just need the 2014 Draft and that's pretty much it. I think that's the plan for Cho. I mean we're paying Ben Gordon 13 mil at the moment for pretty much nothing. Why not make it with something.

Bobcats fans worrying about Jefferson being 28 and maybe only having a few years left, and this and that, is like internet guys giving women low scores when they couldn't even land those in real life. If Jefferson wants to play here in Charlotte, bring him in and deal with his weaknesses lol.

Lol agree.

We'd still gonna be pretty bad with Jefferson. Not terrible, but 20-30 wins bad.

Jefferson would sell tickets which this team desperately needs, and it wouldn't make us amazingly better.  We'd be more respectable, that's for sure.

Beggars can be choosers when it could potentially set your franchise back if you overpay him.

There are definitely valid concerns there, but his "good" outweighs his "bad".

That is still no reason to overpay though.

I would be ok with SLIGHTLY overpaying, I think that's the only way we bring him in.

Just pay the man. Jesus. ;)

Unless we want to cross our fingers and hoped he can up his ppg to 7 instead of 5.

Jefferson is a legit natural Center, not PF. Will be a tremendous front court to build for the future. He's a lot better than the new Knick, Andrea Bargnani.

Do you realize there is going to be like 5 or more teams tanking next year?  Do you also realize the NBA hates Charlotte and the lottery poops on our faces each year?  

 

Toronto, Orlando, Boston, Pheonix, Sac....

 

You can bank on Boston getting #1 next year.  Not to mention those prospects everyone wants could not be what everyone thought they were after playing a year in college.  Shabazz was supposed to be a top 3 pick, McLemore dropped out of the top 5, etc.   You just never know.

If we bring in Jefferson, I'd say start him with Biz, just to balance each other's weaknesses.  Zeller can back up Biz and occasionally Jefferson.
