Kemba is not a natural point guard & most of us who follow the game knew this even before we drafted him. Lance on the other hand is a more natural distributor & will become the defacto point guard IMO.
Hairston does bring some energy similar to Dell back in the day. Most of his shots look good but at the same time most of us realize he needs to improve in a lot of areas to become a consistent impact player
I know we can't change it anyways but I was super excited when we offered a max to GH. I
knew his game and thought it played in perfect.

That stat like looks pretty damn nice
I'm not gonna say I'm against lance but up to this point he's really disappointed not only me but the fanbase. Atleast scoring wise.

Now those assists and rebound numbers are pretty damn great for a sg but those ppg are not cool.
So would Gordon Hayward fit this team better. Would we be better off. I'm Not ready to say we are. But I wished we coulda got Hayward. But I think lance can start scoring more we will be pretty great. But what's your thoughts
They both fit fine. Lance has never played with a big guy like Al or a guard like Kemba, so we have 3 guys who need to touch the ball to be effective so it will take some time for them to sort out the best way to play off each other. I like Hayward but I love Lance's relentless approach to the game. Lance is not & may never be a 20 plus scorer .
I prefer Stephenson to do most of his damage inside the arc. The main area I see he needs to do better is get to the free throw line more which might not be a issue since he will no longer have West& Hi Bert camped in or around the lane
I make this deal if I'm the cavs. Irving & Lebron will get most of the shots & touches do unless Wiggins is a good spot up shooter he won't see the ball much. Love's game complements those two better& he gives them a presence in the paint
Lance is a triple double threat on a nightly basis, gives us another shot creator, can run the half court pick & roll offense & plays good defense. He has some issues but no one questions whether or not he shows up ready to play
The Hornets are active in free agency, the only players signing contracts are mid level & players who get what they want from their current team. You won't see much happen until the Lebron 3 & Menlo contracts are settled
I might be looking at this the wrong way but it appears to me MJ is starting to find his groove as a NBA exec. Most observers have felt MJ always hired "his friends" & not the best people to run the team. He clearly feels Cho is better suited for many of the basketball operations duties
you have to use both FA & the draft to build a solid team IMO. Indiana is a good example of this by drafting well & signing key free agents when necessary, the key is to not sign contracts that keep you from making moves.
