#2848539 Sporting News Report: Stephenson battle down to Hornets, Pacers, and Mavs

Posted by teeray on 12 July 2014 - 11:12 PM

Speaking of PJ... Was it just me, or did he look slightly out of shape/winded last night?


It was an issue at UNC too. Especially his freshman year. He needs to probably drop a couple of pounds, or redefine his body a little.

But once practice and games start he will get in better shape by default

Don't be surprised, if he isn't qualified.

Jefferson was playing on a bum wheel in the playoffs and Biyombo was still only seeing 7 minutes per game (that's not enough to be an impactful player).

By the way try and add for flavor to the conversation instead of trying to poke fun at me.
I'm actually doing very well for myself right now. No complaints here.

I also asked this question in the other post but never got an answer.

- Also explain to me how you are getting rid of Hendo? I've seen everyone say, "just trade Hendo", "we can trade Henderson for him", "get rid of Hendo"...

- In reality, Henderson's value is so low that Orlando took back garbage for Afflao rather than taking on Henderson's contract.

Not to mention, if I recall correctly he has 2 years left on his contract. You can't just dump him like you can in football (with some contracts). So even if you trade him, you are going to have to likely take back most of the money of his contract in some way, so you aren't saving much if any money.

Henderson is likely here for at least one more season even if we find some way to sign Stephenson. Unless we trade him for a back up PG or something

Summer League is meaningless. PJ is better than Henderson.


No he isn't. Not yet.

We will have decisions to make, but overreaction and spur of the moment decisions will only make your team and cap worse.

Look at the cap hell that Brooklyn is in.


I would rather get Stephenson and make tough decisions after this season. He could be a unique talent and only 23

There is a report out there, that I haven't posted because I don't know a lot about them, quoting a source that we have contacted Stephenson's agent about a deal.

 

Again, I don't know this guy so I am haven't posted it.  I try to only rely on people I somewhat know, or from reputable sources.  But it is out there.

 

I am not losing faith!!  I am always an optimist

There have been 3 media entities (2 which are reputable, one not as much) citing sources saying we are pursuing Lance Stephenson and/or have been talking to his agent.

 

Bonnell cites no sources and everyone considers the case closed.

 

Just saying.  We will figure out a way to get it done if we have a chance.

If we really want Stephenson I am sure Cho has a plan, and considered it before making this deal

It doesn't appear they want Stephenson... for some odd reason.


Some are saying we do, Bonnell seems like he is guessing. He isn't citing sources on that.

He will be a similar player to McBob production wise, minus the passing. But maybe a little better scorer

Sign Stephenson, figure out point guard later

Longer it drags out higher his price goes.

Why trade Henderson? Keep him, he can come off the bench.

If MKG continues his struggle that prevent him from playing in the 4th we can still have Kemba, Stephenson, and Henderson on the court to close games.

Stephenson can guard the 3. Makes too much sense to keep him, and next season he becomes more valuable with expiring contract

It will help a lot if Rockets sign Ariza and therefore let Parsons go to Mavs.

That is best case scenario for us right now I think

Where is the Waiters talk coming from?


Just a random wish list from a poster.
