Funny thing is, if the front office ever took my advice, we wouldn't need to outbid anyone else to get him...  I wanted to draft him the year he came out.

If the Pacers don’t address the Stephenson problem, there will be wolves with cap space lurking. The Lakers, Bulls and Bobcats will be among the teams who can and would offer an ample payday and increased opportunity for Stephenson this summer.

Trades

Trade Gordon and Biyombo to Detroit for Greg Monroe

Trade Henderson for Turner

 

Draft

Draft Willie Cauley-Stein with Detroit's pick

Draft Tyler Ennis with Portland's pick

 

Free Agency

Sign Lance Stephenson

Re-Sign Greg Monroe

Re-Sign Evan Turner

Re-Sign Anthony Tolliver (small contract)

Re-Sign Chris Douglas-Roberts (small contract)

Re-Sign Jannero Pargo (small contract)

 

2014-15 Hornets

PG: Kemba Walker, Tyler Ennis, Jannero Pargo

SG: Lance Stephenson, Jeff Taylor

SF: Evan Turner, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Anthony Tolliver, Chris Douglas-Roberts

PF: Greg Monroe, Josh McRoberts, Cody Zeller

C: Al Jefferso, Willie Cauley-Stein, Brendan Haywood

 

This scenario requires MJ spending up to the tax but in my opinion, that could be a top three team in the east when it's all said and done.

 

If somehow Charlotte could get this done they would have around 33 million dollars to sign Stephenson, re-sign Turner, and re-sign Monroe before going over the tax.

I'd start MKG over Turner, who is more of a 2 than a 3 anyway.

With Walker, Stephenson, & Jefferson on the court you've already got 3 guys who can score a ton of points. MKG is the best defender on the team, he'd fit better there than a volume shooter.

Plus, you'd have Turner's scoring coming off the bench.

Also, I will strangle Steve Clifford if Cody Zeller is 3rd string behind Josh fuging Mc bum ass Roberts next season.

That would work as well

 

And unfortunately I think Clifford will start McBob over Zeller because of his love infatuation with him (for some odd reason).

That lineup would be amazing though I'm not a huge fan of Turner but we are linked to him in the rumor mill so I can see why he's on there.

Monroe would be a terrible fit next to Al. I'm also not crazy about Turner since it would likely involve giving up a pick (and taking away our cap space to keep him in Free Agency) for a pretty lateral move.

Of the guys we've been linked to, I can get behind Stephenson and Gibson though.

You said that Kemba doesn't make an impact on the game in another thread... you're a big enough idiot for everyone on this board.

Disagree, Jefferson played the stretch four at times in Utah and can open up space for Monroe with his jump shot.

 

As for Turner, the link for the proposed trade mentioned a Henderson for Turner swap.

People really underestimate Big Al's jumper.

Soooo....we cut Hendo, move Taylor to a 2, and keep four SFs? Hmmm......

Moving Taylor to the two would be the easiest position transition in NBA history, you make it sound like it would be impossible.

 

AT can play the three and four, (which he has this year) which makes him a viable asset to the team (not to mention he is money from three.

 

CDR is just a bench player to fill out the roster, he wouldn't even be active for the games. He's just a body that would come cheap that could also come in and play if someone got hurt. 

 

Not to mention, Stephenson would eat up about 30 minutes a game anyway and there is no doubt that Clifford would want to go big sometimes with a lineup of Walker, Turner, MKG, Monroe, and Jefferson at some point in the game.

 

We currently have two shooting guards... Henderson and Gordon... and four small forwards... MKG, AT, CDR, and Taylor (albeit he is injured).

Please read the whole thing.......
(Including the first lines)

And turner plays both 2 and 3. Wouldn't matter how the lineup looks on paper.

I will say, talk is cheap... the Bobcats need to make a move asap because the Nets are surging.
