Mozgov/Stone Traded for Biyombo(!!)

Recommended Posts



We had Mozgov, Hernangomez and Zeller. None of them were rim protectors. Also,  if/when Cody gets hurt I am more confident with Biz starting then Mozgov and Hernangomez.

to flip an absolute non-factor (Mozgov) into a backup center (Biz) for practically nuthin!?!?

In Mitch I trust..

 

I thought there would be 0 chance we do anything creative this summer and had to just eat some of these contracts..
I.am.pleased.

Biz and Willy should start. Zeller off the bench. Frank gets traded away

Honestly, I feel like both Frank and MKG are on the block. I would still start Zeller due to his screens and ability to switch. Our second unit also is lacking on defense bc assuming Lamb starts and Monk is 6th man, a second unit of Parker & Monk will not be that good at stopping dribble drives and would need Biz to protect the rim.

Not a bad trade.

Biyombo replaces Howard as the rim proctor that the Hornets seem to be infatuated with and he also has chemistry with some of the guys on roster.

Not sure if anyone followed the Magic last year but Vucevic was hurt for a month or so and they gave Biyombo some starts.

When Biyombo averaged 20+ minutes a game he was averaging 10.5 points and 8.4 rebounds (someone needs to fact check me on this but I believe my math is correct).

Agree, this is not a bad move.  We weren't going to us Mozgov..at all.  

Next steps are obvious:

 

Prophecy: Trade Kemba & Lamb to the Blazers for Harkless & McCollum, add Zion+Draymond Green will eventually take us to the promised land. 

2019: Parker-McCollum-Zion-Green-Zeller, 2nd unit Graham-Monk-Bacon-Bridges-Hernnn will lead us to the promised land.

It appears that Kupchak values second round picks more than Cho did as Biyombo is coming over along with two additional second rounders.

Since Kupchak took over, the Hornets have acquired a 2018 2nd round pick (Hamidou Diallo, who was later traded away), two 2019 2nd round picks, two 2020 2nd round picks, and two 2021 2nd round picks.

The Hornets did trade one of their own 2019 2nd round picks along with a 2023 2nd round pick for Graham, but obviously Kupchak decided to recoup the 2019 pick.

It looks like Kupchak may like having two 2nd rounders so he can package them to move up higher into the second round to get a faller (i.e. Graham).

So essentially we got four second round picks and Biz for Howard and Stone?  Works for me

Monk is a STARTER!!!!!!!!!!

I would rather him be a starter at point guard, and we trade Kemba. Monk's PG skills are getting better and better, and the fanbase continues to ignore it.

Yeah, I'm not sure next years Draft is a good Draft to have so many Second Rounders. 2019 Draft is suppose to be one of the weakest in quite sometime.
