Report: Kings near buyout with Jimmer Fredette

26 posts in this topic

Would be nice...but it makes little sense for any buyout candidate to come here instead of a contender. Unless they're promised big minutes which they can use as an audition to go elsewhere.

i hope people understand we are not bottom of the barrel, butt of the jokes in the NBA anymore.. we are not irrelevant

 

i think if Title contenders (IND, MIA, SAS, OKC, LAC) don't necessarily want or need Jimmer's services, and it came down to Charlotte and say Memphis- i definitely think we'd have a shot. NOW, i dont think we need Jimmer on the squad with Neal and Luke (a backup SF/PF/C would be better, IMO) but maybe they still like him

Except there is no word on any contenders being interested in him.

 

From what I read on RGM, the Knicks and Nuggets were the only ones rumored so far.

 

Teams like the Heat would much rather have Granger.

Also we would have better waiver spot if we really wanted to claim him. The Knicks and Nuggets would get the claim if they wanted him , but his 2.3 million dollar salary is not a huge pickup if we would buyout Gordon and go for it for  half a year with him. 

 

A contender would want to snap him up for like 900 k after he cleared waivers and then he would obviously have a choice in where he went.

we are and will be until the bobcats have sustained success. One season does not a good team make.  The bobcats are not even at .500.  slow your roll.

i acknowledge your statement as the official troll of this board, but will not slow my roll OR stop sharing my optimistic point of view

 

im not making us out to be world beaters or the hottest team in the NBA right now- just that we are having successful 4 game win streak and a probable 5th-7th seed in the playoffs. it's not an NBA title.. but irrelevant, hardly..

ERMAHGERD, someone disagreed with me, he must be a troll.  Seriously,  Bobcats have alot to prove before anyone including players in the league will consider them a good team.  And until they do, no one will want to play here for anything other than a ton of money.  Bobcats are at least a year or two of playing good basketball before they can be consider a good baskteball franchise.  Its not a troll, its being realistic.  Blind Optimism isnt realistic.

    • I was a Marine Brat at Camp Lejeune NC and graduated from CLHS in 1978 and on 28 June 1978 I joined the Navy.  I retired On June 30th 2003 after 25 yrs of Naval Service and have been serving overseas to support our troops ever since. I was in Tikrit when they captured Saddam.  Soldiers from our base were the ones who actually found him.  I have been in places in Iraq called Mosul, Al Asad, and Al Kut,  I have been in Bagram Airfield in Afghanistan.  The living hell hole called FOB Shank were incoming was a daily encounter. You see young soldiers who don't even shave yet.  Some look like they lied to get in.  Men and women from every walk of life.  Putting that uniform on.  So needless to say, I am very attached and proud of every one of them.  Whether they know me or not.  Tears fill my eyes every time we lose one. (Just lost one last week). This video, I saw when it was originally aired, still make me water up.   I challenge anybody to show me a more military dedicated team, in ANY LEAGUE, ANY SPORT, that supports the troops like the Carolina Panthers.  I'll give my hated Yankees a close 2nd. ($10,00 ticket with a military ID) **at old Yankee Stadium. Carolina is a class act, plain and simple. Thanks for posting this again,
