Why are we leaving the plan?

Look at the small market formula..OKC is a recent team to model after but after trading Harden they may be rebuilding soon as stars get frustrated with attracting stars to help them.H

Al jefferson is fine to sign I just do not like the JR Smith guy who will frustrate the youth movement...and is a coach killah.


Yeah I agree. I don't think Jefferson hurts us. But will definitely help now and down the road when we are ready to make the playoff push in 2014-2016

The way things have gone I prefer free agent pick ups and as time goes use the draft to replace the guys who let go of ad their contracts. Too many coaches coming and going to build thru the draft. Once you have a good vet core going just add a rookie here or there every few yrs. Too much has to go your way for the draft and I'm ready for some playoff caiber teams here.

If the plan is to get Wiggins by tanking, I don't like that plan. Fact is, we have terrible luck in the draft lottery.

 

I'd put my money on Jefferson working out, than the balls bouncing in our favor.

It doesn't have to be just Wiggins. Parker and Randel are also top notch guys. No point in winning just enough or fighting for the 8th seed only to get swept. We tried that with Crash and Jackson. Overpayed  guys and it bit us in the ass. We had no stars, no flexibility, no one wanted our overpayed  players in trades, and we won enough to always miss out on the top draft prospects. The origional Hornets were crap until we landed LJ and Zo. Shinn after giving LJ a huge contract started getting stingy. Then we had to try and trade everyone. Bob Bass was a genius and kept the team good by picking up Jones, Rice, Mason...etc. The league has changed and only a handful of teams can lure the top FA every year.

while I'm not sure about the player, I'm warming up to the plan.

 

With Zeller, Jefferson, Kemba and the Kid, we could add the game changer next year in free agency.

Ive never bought in to the " the best way to win is to lose" thing. Winning begats winning.
