Rumors the Hornets might be interested in Josh Smith

Hopefully these articles and rumors have been made up out of thin air.

 

 

A rumor is swirling around the NBA that the Detroit Pistons might be looking to trade away forward Josh Smith.

Although the Pistons have denied that they want to trade away Josh Smith, it isn’t keeping everybody from talking about it, and exploring all the possible landing spots for Smith.

Yes, but at the right cost.Several teams have came up as possibilities, and the Charlotte Hornets happen to be one of them. Should the Charlotte Hornets make a run at Josh Smith if given the opportunity?

Last season with the Detroit Pistons Josh Smith averaged 16 points, and 6 rebounds per game. His best season came in 2011-2012 with the Atlanta Hawks when he averaged 18 points and 9 rebounds per game.

Would I give up a lot for Josh Smith? Absolutely not, but what would the Hornets have to give up to change Detroit’s mind? Well, we don’t know the answer to that considering that the Pistons have denied that Smith is on the trade block.

It would be something along the lines of Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Gerald Henderson, and maybe a draft pick.

Would I do that trade if I was Charlotte? In a heartbeat, yes.

It all depends on the development of P.J. Hairston. If P.J. becomes a great NBA player we all know he is capable of being, what is the need to have Gerald Henderson on the roster still? Charlotte signed Lance Stephenson, he will get the majority of the minutes at the shooting guard position, you don’t need 3 SG’s on your team that are all capable of starting.

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist is still young and we have yet to see his best basketball yet, but trading him for Josh Smith is a upgrade and is something the Hornets should at least consider.

 


Playing time for Kelvin?

Hearing people say he might only play 1-2 possessions. I know he has the starting job locked up, though we need to see what he offers in a real game. How long do you think we see him for? I was hoping for a good two quarters.


Cam?

Again, it did not appear that Cam aggravated anything. But we won't know for sure until after practice. Shorts and helmets today.

Cole: Panthers want to break sack record

06 August 2014 - 02:31 PM

 

 

SPARTANBURG, S.C. -- Apparently, Greg Hardy isn't the only member of the Carolina Panthersdefense with lofty -- and perhaps farfetched -- sack goals. 

Defensive tackle Colin Cole says the focus after Carolina collected a team-record 60 sacks last season is to set an NFL single-season record in 2014. 

Asked if he knew what that was, the 34-year-old player Cole wiped the sweat off his face and admitted he didn't. Neither did I for sure until I looked it up. It was the 1984 Chicago Bears..
They had 72. 

Now collecting 13 more sacks than last season may not sound insurmountable. It's certainly not as unrealistic as Hardy setting his personal goal for 50, which is more than twice the NFL single-season record of 22.5 that Michael Strahan had in 2001.

We would need to average 4.6 sacks per game to break the record. Really doesn't seem impossible TBH.
