3 FAs to fix the Hornets

88 posts in this topic

Lance Stephenson- need a 2 guard that is a threat from 3pt land. Someone who can create other than Kemba forcing up tough shots at the end of a shot clock.

Pau Gasol- need another reliable scoring big who can also facilitate. A bigger better McBob. Can also help Zeller reach his potential.

Ramon Sessions- he has already expressed a want to return back home. Its so obvious we need a legit PG off the bench right now.

I also would package Henderson with the Portland pick or our 2nd round pick and move up to grab a better player in the draft.

All this is null and void if we just sign Melo (in my dreams)..

Lance Stephenson isn't a sharpshooter by any means

Yeah, I don't really think any of those guys but Sessions would be good for us.

I wanted Lance when he came out, but now, with the way the team is currently constructed, he would not really help us at all.

Pau either.

We need more scoring so eventually we as fans are just going to have to suck it up. We may not get a complete player but if that player can score then we shouldn't just turn him down.

Did everyone forget what happened when Al went out today?

Pau would be a great signing, I'm not opposed to Stephenson, and Sessions would probably take another discount to come back home.

Gordon Hayward.

 

Also, Chicago is expected to amnesty Carlos Boozer. He is the type of veteran that I could see Cho bringing in for cheap.

 

Others of note: Patty Mills, Patrick Patterson,

 

We could also consolidate some of our assets to trade for some guys. We're in a very good position this offseason.

I would rather start McBob forever than have Carlos Boozer on this team. Worse jumpshooting than McBob, worse defense.

He can't shoot 3's like McRoberts but he has a better midrange jumper. He's also a better rebounder. I'm not saying I want him over McRoberts but he would be a decent insurance policy (at the right price) if Josh opts out of his contract and commands more money. Even if McRoberts stays, Boozer could provide some offense off the bench (something the Hornets REALLY need from their bench bigs) and allow Zeller to develop while playing the 4 and 5.

 

Keep in mind, all of this is contingent on him being very low cost, which I think he will be.

The biggest improvement for most NBA players is between year 3-6 in the league. We have a few guys entering that window.

With the exception of needing a backup PG I like what we currently have in place. Coach them up and let em play is my motto. I'm not a big fan of free agency bc you normally playing the highest price for a player you don't have detailed knowledge about, the prize you land might be about to turn the corner toward a downward slop.

    • http://www.alternet.org/grayzone-project/fbi-isis-garland-texas-shooting-undercover-agent The first attack on U.S. soil for which ISIS claimed responsibility—a 2015 shooting in Garland, Texas—was instigated by the FBI, according to an investigation by CBS' "60 Minutes" and government documents obtained by an attorney involved in the case. In a macabre twist, an undercover FBI agent who encouraged one of the shooters to "tear up Texas" was also physically present at the scene of the crime, mere feet away from the shooters. Prior to that, a separate informant was paid $132,000 by the FBI to pretend for three years to be friends with the future shooter. When the man found out his supposed friend had taped more than 1,500 hours of their conversations on behalf of the intelligence agency, he withdrew from his religious community and eventually fell into online religious extremism. ...... On May 3, 2015, two Islamist extremist gunmen opened fire at an exhibit for cartoons of the Islamic prophet Muhammad in Garland, Texas. The contest featured key figures in the Islamophobia industry, including anti-Muslim demagogue Pamela Geller and extreme-right Dutch politician Geert Wilders. The intentionally provocative exhibit was swarming with security, including dozens of police officers, snipers and a SWAT team. The heavily armed attackers injured a security guard outside the building before they were themselves promptly shot by snipers and killed. ISIS soon after took credit for the shooting. There is no evidence that ISIS organized the attack, but the shooters had been independently radicalized and were inspired by the genocidal extremist group. In the two years since, the Garland shooting has been used to justify a vast array of anti-Muslim policies and measures. A new investigation by the investigation team at "60 Minutes," nevertheless, shows that the FBI was deeply implicated in the attack. ..... After the trial, Maynard was given 60 pages of declassified messages between an undercover FBI agent and one of the shooters, Elton Simpson. These documents showed that, less than three weeks before the attack, the FBI agent had told Simpson to "Tear up Texas." This "to me was an encouragement to Simpson," the attorney told "60 Minutes." The government denied that the text constituted incitement, but the FBI's involvement did not end there. "60 Minutes" reported that the U.S. government admitted in an affidavit that the undercover FBI agent also physically "traveled to Garland, Texas, and was present ... at the event." "I was shocked," Maynard told the news program. "I was shocked that the government hadn't turned this over. I wanted to know when did he get there, why was he there?" Documents the government gave to the attorney showed that the FBI agent had in fact been in a car behind the two shooters at the time of the attack. The undercover FBI agent even used his cell phone, several feet away, to film the building's security guard seconds before he was shot by the Islamist extremists. "It's stunning," Maynard told "60 Minutes." "The idea that he's right there 30 seconds before the attack happens is just incredible to me." ..... The undercover FBI agent fled the scene of the crime before being stopped at gunpoint and detained by Garland police. ..... Dabla Deng, the informant, pretended to be Simpson's friend for three years, "60 Minutes" reported. Deng taped more than 1,500 hours of their conversations. When Simpson "found out that this guy was spying on him, and taping him and then finding out that the government was doing that, I think something clicked in him," recalled Usama Shami, president of the Islamic Community Center of Phoenix. "And the mosque, we couldn't do anything." "He felt that the mosque had abandoned him?" Anderson Cooper asked. "Yes. And he felt that a lot of people had abandoned him. And that's why he stopped coming to the mosque," Shami said. After this, Simpson moved in with his friend Nadir Soofi, who "60 Minutes" noted "had just had a bitter break-up and the pizza parlor he owned was going out of business." The two alienated men drifted into extremist religious communities online, and were attracted by ISIS recruiters.
    • i actually took this test a year ago because i was talking to this girl who was a psych major and really invested in this test. then i was talking to this other girl who was also a psych major and she thought there wasn't much to it, she basically didn't have respect for it. if i took it today it'd probably line up the same. 
    •    There isn't a problem taking a tackle usually. The problem would be taking any of THESE OTs that high. If there was someone close to that, we would have risked so much on Kalil.
