Nah, I've been hating on it since it was announced the Bobcats were interested. Just think it's the wrong year to add Salary to a below average team. I understand why the Bobcats made the move, but I think it was possible to wait till next year to make the major FA moves.

You have to build a team gradually. You just cant built it all at once except if you're the you know Big Markets (Miami/Brooklyn/etc). Rome wasn't built in one day. Lol

Probably the best thing ever came out of you. Kudo

But it's more like this:

(1) Hibbert
(2) Noah
(3) Horford
(4) Jefferson
(5) Lopez

No need to Kudo me sir, I know my basketball and I called the Al Jefferson signing before FA. I know I wasn't here long but I called it.

 

 

Also Al Horford is a pf, he just plays center because the Hawks have no other bigman.

It's an overpay, but I think it's a good move in terms of length and the player. It's the biggest free agency move we've ever done and he's a great player at a position that we've fielded trash. Not to mention that, unless his skill set drastically erodes, there are teams every year looking to move assets for a big.

What centers are going to be FA next year?   Cousins won't come here and Monroe won't be let go, so who?  We've needed a 5 like this for a decade, can't wait and hope someone actually wants to play here.  We got him pretty cheap honestly.

Most teams don't have offensive centers, heck the two best teams in the league don't have offensive centers. There's only a couple centers in the league that can even average 15 and 10. There's plenty of other things the Bobcats could have done with the money they spent. They could have waited and went after the more rounded player in Pekovic...ext... 

 

On top of that having a center that can't defend the pick and roll is a disaster just waiting to happen over and over again.

exactly how many championship NBA teams have you assembled?  I say trust the people hired to do the job.

No but I think the Thunder are doing pretty well though.  I'd be OK with their success the last few years.

Cho wasn't the GM of the Thunder though, he was more like an assistant to the GM.

The Thunder utilized Cho's background in both law and mathematics when negotiating trades, free agent signings, and interpreting the NBA's complex collective bargaining agreement.  This guy had a direct hand in choosing draft picks and building that team though.
