Where is this notion that Hayward is a good shooter coming from. His shooting %'s (both two and three point shots) is worse then Hendo's.

If you want a shooter you have to grab Stephenson (no matter how Russell Westbrookesque he is). Stephenson nearly shoots 50% from the field, that's what we need.

Even with a very down year, Hayward is a career 36.5% shooter from 3. Even with his greatest year statistically on a very low volume, Hendo is a career 30.0% shooter from 3. We need guys who can shoot 3's. Let MKG and Big Al work in the paint.

Carmelo is a cancer. There's a reason he has never won anything.

Im not a huge Carmelo fan but the reason he has never won anything is the big 3 in boston (pierce, garnett, allen era), Lakers big 3 (bryant, gasol, bynum) and the Heat Big 3 (PRESENT). 

 

Tell me how his team from Denver or his current NY team could honestly compete with that? 

 

Look at it this way, who would you take from the Knicks over our players on the bobcats? The answer is nobody but Melo bc we have much better team. 

 

I am actually in favor of getting Melo on the Hornets bc he could be our missing piece. We don't have to build around him like they tried doing in Denver & NY. He will already have the team built. 

 

But to be honest I think it is still a pipe dream. My realistic dream is just a backup PG like Livingston. No other players I would use my cap on.

I agree. I am not a Melo fan because he is a selfish player. If I knew he would come in and fit in with the offense and try harder on defense I would take him in a heartbeat. To have the skills he has and not play smart/harder makes me mad. Is it all his fault? No. Coaches have allowed him to do that, if we can get him to buy into this team we would be true championship contenders. 

 

In all honesty Melo is best suited to either sign in Charlotte or Chicago. Both teams have money, solid defenses and players that would compliment his skills. What will he do? Probably resign with Knicks (Unless Jackson keeps talking and pisses off his ego.)    and continue his uninspired career. I only say this because he is a top 2 scorer (Durant and Melo are who I believe to be best scorers in the game) that wont facilitate an offense or try on defense. It is "Iso" game for him. You know he can play in a system if you have ever watched him in USA (Olympics/World Cup) games.

No offense, but have y'all watched Melo at all this season? I feel bad for him. He has done everything he can and played with a ton of effort but his team and coach just flat out suck. Every time I watched him I was even impressed with his defensive effort. He's not a great defender but he isn't terrible. He almost single-handedly, DESPITE his team, willed them to the Playoffs.

 

Of course all this is moot as Melo ain't coming here but I would not be opposed to bringing him in at all. He is hungry for a ring.

I'm not saying Melo isn't good. He's a very talented ball player. He just takes too many shots, doesn't pass and doesn't have a great attitude. That along with the price makes him un-appeasing IMO. We are more suited to try and become a similar team to the pacers then the Heat.

Hell no to Nick Young! The dude is a scrub.

Maybe as a 6th man, but not starter material.

Want Hayward, but would still like Lance Stephenson. Not a great shooter but will be a huge upgrade over Hendo.

Similar player to MKG, but better ball handler.


We could get a "shooter" like Aaron Harrison with the Portland pick.

Melo at the 3 with Jefferson would be a disaster, he'd have to be a 4 here. That and pretty much everyone bolded on the list isn't coming here.

Nick Young and Gerald Henderson splitting time would work very well. Neither are starters, so we could run a platoon type thing with the two of them. I'm not sure were you got the impression he would be starting.
