FA youd like to see the Hornets go after

Recommended Posts

Obvious all eyes are on Kemba to see what we do here.

Say we let him walk.  Who are some guys youd like to see us go after (be realistic, no Durant's, Kawhi, etc)

 

Jeremy Lamb, was solid here.  Seems to like it here.  Seems to take a team friendly deal if offered.

Danny Green- Bacon is starting to click (still dont think he's a bonefied starter, but a dam good 6th man).  Borrego is a coach Pop disciple.  Green, a vet, was a Stud under Pops system.  Real good 3 point shooter or stud defender.

Ricky Rubio- again with the Pop/Borrego connection.  Pop always Loved international players.  With the loss of Kemba, he'd be a option as a starter at PG going into next season

Danny Green is not coming here when he could get paid just as much to be on a contender. Ricky Rubio is likely to get good money somewhere else. Why come to a Charlotte team that is likely not competing or has a legitimate playoff chance? Jeremy Lamb is about to get PAID. He will likely be out of our price range. If we sign any free agents, I would like to see the team take a chance at signing a young center such as Ivica Zubac or Thomas Bryant. Also, they should look at signing a young point guard, such as Emmanuel Mudiay or Elfrid Payton if we decide to skip on point guard in the first round. I believe we would have enough cap to sign a combination of these two positions, but we surely will not attract any bigger names than the ones I have listed due to the team likely looking to start over with a rebuild. A rebuild would be a smart move for the team, along with taking a few gambles on some young NBA players. Get young and try to build chemistry.

Jesus we're going to suck, no one wants to play here, and if they did, we couldn't pay them anyway.

Nobody.  Why continue to build the 10th best roster in the East? Bottom out, get money off the books, rebuild over the next 2-3 years.

Not a free agent but Chris Paul is somebody who we might consider if we end up keeping Kemba. 

Proof he could be available: Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey is reportedly hellbent in improving his roster, showing an “aggressive desire” to do so by being willing to involve players and potential draft picks, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Before you tell me I'm idiot for wanting to take on 3 years/120ish million and a 34 year old Chris Paul, I want to say that the Rockets are certainly aware of how close to being a negative asset CP3 is.. He's not going to fetch some huge trade package. Without further delay,  I present to you a trade that pair up Kemba and CP3 and get rid of Batum in the process. I wish Paul's deal was one year shorter so that we'd just be trading 2 years of Batum + Zeller at about $40 million per total for 2 years of Paul at that price. The extra year is bad, and we wouldn't want to give up any picks in this kind of deal. Parker says he prefers to play for a competitive team if he doesn't retire, this suits that desire. Zeller is injury prone too, and Batum sucks. Nene and Hartenstein are just to make the money even.

Kind of just expect our FO to be in to this sort of thing.. I think it was actually reported we were talking to the Rox, but it was Kyler so unreliable. 

Another target that actually makes sense for our longer term outlook is Capela, Rockets are listening to offers to him.. After he looked like crap in the semis against GSW, I feel like they wouldn't be opposed to moving on from him, and we really need a center. He's a decent young guy on a long term deal that isn't even that steep, would be thrilled if we got our hands on him.

As for FA, we're pretty much capped out. Even if Kemba walks I don't think we should go pay anybody too much money.

    • Exactly. Why draft a Jim Drunkenmiller when Payton Manning is available the next year.  Drunkenmiller was the first QB taken in '97. Manning was the first QB taken in 98. Of course, you've got to have good people making those decisions. You absolutely draft Drunkenmiller if your coach and GM are going to take Leaf in 98. I have zero confidence in our current coach / GM to make the right choice. 
    • If I were Tepper, I'd wait for about half this season to play out before I did anything. But right now I'm watching extremely closely and consulting people I trust on what to do next. If we go 0-8 or something horrendous like that I'd fire Rivera mid-season. Probably promote Norv or someone else on the staff for the rest of the season, whoever Tepper likes the most to give THEM a shot to try to put some juice back into the team. If that still doesn't work, I'm scrapping everything in the offseason. Hurney, Norv, Rivera, Washington.  Offseason comes, I've ALREADY done my homework during the season and already have a good idea who I'm hiring for the new management and coaching positions.  I'd say it depends on Cam's performance for the rest of this year, but if he has a mediocre or bad season he IS on contract in 2020 as his last year. If he's anywhere halfway decent this season in 2019 on the whole I'm keeping Cam, Luke, DJ, C-Samuel, Bradberry, Donte, Burns as the core of the team and everyone else is subject to change. I'm focusing on giving Cam and Luke the absolute best possible chances of victory in 2020. Getting the best coaches/staff in the offseason. Likely we have a high draft pick if we have a terrible season, so I'd be looking at a franchise LT and a young DE/OLB to compliment Burns .  Having a LONG talk with Cam in the offseason on where he wants to take the franchise, I'm going to try to help you in any way possible to succeed in 2020 etc. If you're hearts not in it anymore we're willing to cut bait and move on.   If Cam does keep playing and performs badly 2 years in a row (2019 AND 2020) , I'm simply not resigning him and letting him become a free agent at the end of his deal at age 31/32. Wouldn't be the end of the universe for Cam IMO, that's still fairly young for a QB, he could either retire or try to rejuvinate his career elsewhere, he'd get plenty of chances being a former MVP. 
    • If the season is over, why worry about football sense. You should start thinking business sense.  Word has been going around that Tepper wanted Mike Tomlin fired. It makes no sense at all to not want to fire Rivera.
