Is there any way we can get Drummond and Holiday without losing Kemba or Miles?

If we can find away to lose Batum in this as well.. That would be perfect..

I know Spencer says 90% we are trading for a center.. And Bleacher is reporting we inquired about Holiday.. Is Kup going to get both??

We inquired about Jrue - that's it.. its been stated that they aren't looking to trade him..

Drummond on the other hand - seems like Detroit and us have been talking back n forth..

Without giving up a 1st or Kemba

The answer is No

 

 

The original rumored off we were looking with Drummond was Monk and Batum.

 

So with them off the board.  The only real bargain chips for Holliday would be 

Kemba- Not going to happen

Bridges+Some. Dont see them giving up Bridges for that

A 1st round pick: not going to give up a 1st.  If we weren't willing to part ways with a 1st for bigger fish such as Bradley Beal, then No Way we give it up for Holiday.

We might be better off standing pat.  Monk and Bridges are looking better these days.  I doubt we can get anything helpful without giving up one or both of them.

I would kinda like Drummond in a great deal that gives up Batum but no way I want to give up our young core for him.

Batum has actually been much better lately 

the reason we hate him is because we are paying him way too much...he is a bench guy, and would be a really good one if that was his role

I don't think Drummond would benefit this team in terms of how they like to play. He's essentially a younger Dwight Howard to me and I don't think they need that. I've gotten to the point now where I don't believe Batum is getting dealt. It would cost way too much, the Hornets would probably have to give up two first rounders to do that and I don't believe you should trade future picks just to get rid of an albatross contract. In my opinion, you should only trade future first rounders to get a bonafide superstar or if you're in a position to win a championship. 

This team has been run off the court at Boston and Toronto but they've been extremely competitive with Philly and most other games. In essence, the team needs to make a minor deal for a viable rotation player. Monk's improvement has been vital during this stretch and he needs to keep that going and they've done it without Zeller. I'm not his biggest fan but he's important to what they do and he makes Kemba way more effective in the P&R game. If Monk can continue to progress, that can really make this team much more dangerous offensively with those three on the court at the same time.

But, Zeller has to stay healthy, which is a crapshoot.

Batum is hard to get away from and he sucks..

I wish he was gone so Miles can get those minutes.. 

Zeller is soft and he stays hurt.. Has he ever played a full season??

I would love to get a replacement center.. 

I would also liked to get more time for Bacon.. So we need to get rid of some wings...

Add that Frank is a albatross sitting on the bench.. 

We need to get rid of him as well.. We need to make some deals...

Frank is on the last year of a cheap rookie deal. The only way he gets dealt is part of a package most likely. If someone offered a 2nd rounder for him, I'm sure Kupchak would take that deal. But, they need another body down low. If I were you, I wouldn't get my hopes up about a major deal. I don't think the Hornets have enough to pull something off without including future first rounders, which they should not part with.

If Monk and Miles can play their way into the starting line up our roster looks a whole lot better.  Even if Monk plays the sixth man role bringing offense off the bench its still very valuable. 

We could use another quality big man but I am not sure we have assets we are willing to part with to make it happen.
