Hendo is just overpaid relative to his level of play. He does do some things well. But his weaknesses are also the same as those in the 1-3 spots for the hornets, so he just further exacerbates the problems the hornets have with outside shooting.
Outside of McRoberts, the entire starting lineup is intact with some more additions, and the role players and bench warmers lost are being replaced with younger, higher-upside guys.
Agree with that.
My point was that I see many on this board claiming that kemba and Zeller are going to improve and that's going to win us some games--which I agree with. But same could be said for the young players in WAS.
i wouldnt trade MKG for Rudy straight up, let alone throwing in Hendo and our only other Center on the roster
Hendo is not an asset. I don't know why people can't get that.
In the nba, when you aren't talking about all star players, everything is relative to your contract. You are an asset when you are paid less than your production or when you have an expiring. You are not an asset when you are paid more than production.
Hendo is not an asset. He is overpaid and the only way someone will be willing to take him on is if we either give up something like a draft pick or we take on a bad contract in the process. That's why he hasn't been moved.
A guy like Jeff Taylor actually has more value than Hendo. Is Taylor a better player? Absolutely not, but his production to price metrics add up.
Gary Neal is much more likely to get moved as he has a much smaller contract.
