It was privilege getting to watch Kemba and for his sake I hope he gets to a team that is ready to compete.

I'd love to see him on Dallas.

Very true, there would be no money to surround him with anything.

Maybe trade Monk and our first for a little help but outside of that I don't know what else we could do.

I'll say this... If we do lose Kemba then Kupchak can go fug himself for declining every trade offer.

I'd have taken Sexton for him which more than likely would have cemented a top 5 pick for us.

Part of the reason I said the Hornets had to trade him was because if you sign him long term, you basically have to wait for two years to really go full out on building a full team around him by letting all the bad contracts roll off the team. At that point he's a 31 year old PG who relies on quickness and shiftiness to get points.

Pretty sure and word is that MJ is the one who over rode any chance of him getting traded. There was a good chance this season before the all Star game as well that was vetoed by Jordan.

According to Zach Lowe of ESPN, the Cleveland Cavaliers would have traded the 8th overall pick in the 2018 NBA Draft to the Charlotte Hornets for All-Star point guard Kemba Walker had LeBron James committed to re-signing.

Cleveland would have traded for Kemba Walker if LeBron James stayed

    • Teddy was good in college, so much so that I remember a few Huddlers mentioning "tanking for Teddy" the season before he came out. And, it's not like his winning ways haven't translated to the NFL, regardless of whether someone believes he only did it because he had a good team surrounding him. At some point, one really has to concede that you're not going to take a trash team to the playoffs, regardless of who you are. Unlike Trent Dilfer who simply didn't have to do much, Bridgewater actually had to win a few games. His defenses were very good, but they weren't historical. But, I can understand why you'd think of Teddy as a game manager. That's not necessarily a bad thing in all cases. We almost one a Super Bowl with a glorified game manager (and Delhomme was one in my opinion), but this brings me to the next point, which is sometimes that has a lot to do with the HC's and OC's philosophy as well.  I have questions about Teddy, believe me. But I have less questions about his ability to get some wins than whether or not his decidedly small frame can hold up to the rigors of the NFL. I mean, he really had a catastrophic injury. If he hadn't his career just might be on full showcase as opposed to a reclamation project. I'm not going to count it against him because he played on decent defensive teams, including one as a rookie, but then got hurt in the third year when many QBs show marked improvement and start putting it all together. If anything, he didn't have to be as proficient or efficient as he was, particularly in his sophomore season, considering the relatively little experience that he had. The other two seasons were pretty much throwaways where he didn't get any credible playing time and rehabbing both physically and mentally, and people not really believing that he could resume any semblance of success (which probably had to do moreso with his injury than anything else). Bottom line: He took the reigns and stayed the course for one of the best in NFL history. So, yeah, I'm not sure he can get us to where we want to ultimately go, but if he stays healthy, I wouldn't bet against him. His career is the epitome of disjointed, but injuries do that to even the Cam Newtons and Andrew Lucks of the league who had considerably more time at the helm.  This year (or next) will tell us a lot.  
    • The thought is that the upper end QB's in this upcoming class are "safer" bets. Even after Lawrence and Fields it does actually look like a strong QB class, depending on who declares.
    • Not sure if you mean Trubisky, Darnell, Mayfield or Murray here?  Point being even if we manage a tanking, it is a coin flip at best.
