Hornets in talks for Bradley Beal

Monk's ceiling is what Beal currently is. It's nice to have prospects and all, but if you can dump those prospects for a finished product you have to do it. 

Yup.

I will take a bird in the hand please...

monk + Batum + lamb + 2 first rounders

 

Second first is for them taking Batum, gotta include it in any deal here. likely to be other picks involved as well like 2 seconds or such.

Blow Monk out.  He got in the doghouse last year and appears to be headed for it again this year.  In addition, the Yes Co. & Cho jinx is hanging over him....if he goes somewhere else maybe the kid can make a go of it (seems like a nice guy).

word is the trade package might end up being Beal and fillers for Batum, Monk, Bridges, Lamb plus a first.

Beal is the player the Wizards least want to trade, he has the most trade value of any player on that roster and for his skill set has a reasonable contract for 2 more years. 

 

Monk + 1st + Lamb and filler isn't going to be enough, so either multiple first round picks or both players on the Hornets outside of Kemba with the most value. 

 

One of the beat reporters for Washington said that A horrible contract plus a pick isn't enough that if Charlotte wanted Beal it would have to up the assets majorly. Agreed with a fan that Monk + Bridges, Lamb and 1st would be the type of deal it would take to get it done.  Will have to find the tweet. 

 

So if it happens, expect the Hornets to give up a ton to get it done. Especially if the Wizards don't want Batums contract and the Hornets have to work with William's as filler.

I'd give up two firsts before parting with Bridges but its indicative of just how horrible Batum's contract is that I'd still probably do the deal with Monk, Bridges and an additional 1st just to get rid of him.  Hard to imagine what our new lineup would look like since we would be giving up 3 or 4 key rotation guys for one starter.

"Fug" I'd give up 4!

Air Maxi's picks are disappointing whether a 2 or 4 or 7 or a 9 and Bridges is the first glimmer of light at the end of a tunnel in a long long long time...heck, f-o-r-e-v-e-r in Air Maxi time...

...gotta hang on to Bridges at all costs.

Really don’t think we should give up bridges. Anyone else is ok though.

That is not the same thing as "the word"..  more like "the word of a guy on twitter"

Mitch would be crazy to give them Lamb, Bridges, Monk and a first rounder..

Even Rick Bonnell went that direction for the Wizards asking price. Wizards are going to want Monk, Lamb and Bridges plus picks because the only way Charlotte can pull it off is by sending horrible contracts back the other way. Only way a team does that is if they get extra compensation. 

 

Regardless if its Williams or Batum, the Hornets will have to add to the pot to make that attractive. 

 

so if straight up trade would be Lamb, Monk and a first round pick top 3 protected. Adding Batum or William's to match salary means you've got to add something else to the mix for Washington to legitimately consider it. I.E and extra first round pick plus Bacon/Willy or Bridges. 

 

That's just what it's going to take.
