We finally have some offensive bigs to allow Kemba more options as a scorer and passer, and then speculation of trading for another PG?  This is Kemba's time, no way would I fug with that.

The article is totall speculation...may even be a sub Bleacher report type site...I just posted it bc it had Bobcats mentioned, some tweets and since it will be some time before the season..good to get angry about.

If anyone wants to post other great Kemba highlights then I say Do This!

I personally wouldn't want to see us ditch Kemba for Lin. I just don't see it as an upgrade, I think Kemba has the higher ceiling. I suppose Lin weighs in with a couple more assists, but I'd rather have Kemba in the team. Wuth some work Kemba should be able to weigh in some more assists.

Plus based on current contracts no way would I want to see us take on Lin's. I'd rather see us keep Kemba.

This is silly.  Not happening.  Articles from people who probably know little about the Bobcats.  PG is a spot that we're great at, Kemba/Sessions is a good combo, we could use a 3rd PG for depth but it'll be a no namer or a cheap signing.

The ONLY capacity Id want Lin is as a sixth man backup 1&2 guard but not on his current contract. Houston would have to add in a couple first rounders to make this even remotely something that should be considered. So a package of Lin a 2014 & 2016 unprotected 1s for Sessions and Hayward with the knowledge that Lin is ok as a 6th man would be a palatable deal for the Hornets but no way Houston does that deal.

They'd have to take on Gordon's salary also I believe.

Hope we don't do anything stupid..... like adding Jeremy Lin for example

Get ready it's coming, watch MJ go full retard and trade Kemba for Lin/late 1rd pick.

 

 

Then Houston will win the championship with Kemba as their starting pg.

They can have Gordon he doesn't seem to want to be here anyway.

I think Lins cap hit is only like 5-8 mill this year though I think its next season it would rape us because the poison pill contract Houston gave him. If it is only 5-8 then Hayward and Sessions should equal out(unless I've completely missremembered their cap numbers which is possible)

I think Ramon Sessions is a better backup PG than Lin.

The poison pill is like 14-15 mill next year, just like Asik I believe.

Ben Gordon's contract is worth more to the Hornets than Lin.

Gordon coming off the cap next season is worth a 14 million per season free agent!

Not really, they have to resign Kemba, and they'll probably give Biz an offer in the 4-5 million range. If they give Hendo a contract in the 8 million range then all that money's spent before it's even gone. Plus if the Hornet's have 3 picks in the first round that's like another 8 million to sign those guys.

Those rookie contracts are alredy there..Haywood comes off maybe even Sessions.
