  1. This is so extreme lol I completely get and share a lot of the Rhule frustration, but he inherited a team that needed an obvious rebuild and we aren't halfway through his second season. All of Rhule's best years in previous jobs he's had have come in year 3. Ron was also average/bad until year 3. Let this play out a little more.
  2. I love this trade! We just replaced a top 10 pick with another in less than a week - how often does that happen?? I'll be interested to see how this affects Horn's outlook for the rest of this season. I do think Fitterer was going to try and add a corner regardless to continue to capitalize on the 3-0 start. So I don't think this necessarily means Horn is done for year. If Horn has let the team know that he thinks his best course of action to get healthy is to end his season and heal then perhaps that expedited this move. I hope Horn does try and come back for the stretch run to hopefully help get this team over the hump and into the playoffs. Either way, stoked to add a talent like CJ Henderson to this defense. Panthers have 4 of the top 64 draft prospects from 2020 on this defense.
  3. Here you go: https://www.theringer.com/nfl/2021/9/20/22683777/nfl-week-2-undefeated-teams-cardinals-buccaneers-broncos-raiders Listed front and center of the pretender 2-0 teams
  4. To be fair, PJ was also at summer league with those guys and in the team workouts. As was Jalen McDaniels.
  5. Terry definitely earned this extension. Has been an awesome player for Charlotte since arriving and seems to have built a good bond with the young core of players that have come in since Mitch got here. As long as this deal doesn't limit our ability to extend guys like Miles and maybe PJ next summer and in 2023 then I don't see much wrong with the contract. Part of changing the perception and building a strong culture is rewarding guys that have done it for you. This deal does that.
  6. He was the best post defender on the roster last year and it wasn't close. Those small ball lineups with him at the five had among the best +/- stats on the team last year. Team was much better with PJ at center last year than Cody and certainly Biz. I'd prefer Charlotte play someone at C who's natural position is that, but PJ wasn't a slouch there by any means. He was also learning it on the fly so I imagine he'd be better this year in that same spot with a year of experience. I don't believe Kai Jones will log heavy Center minutes this season. And I think Carey/Richards will be played on a matchup by matchup basis. PJ is gonna get a lot of reps at Center this season. Just warning you.
  7. Carey isn't going anywhere. His contract is fully guaranteed the next two seasons with an affordable team option the year after that. Cody Martin's contract isn't guaranteed until 8/15 so if you cut someone, he's a good candidate for it. Richards and Iwundu both are guaranteed for this upcoming season, but nothing past that. If you decide to release one of those guys it'll cost, but not too much. Overall Gelo and Carton are probably long shots for the actual roster. Both two way contracts are already filled as well. My guess is both will feature on the swarm this season.
  8. I think Caleb Martin is gone
  9. Maybe. I can't imagine Monk didn't get at least 1 call offering more money than the Lakers. Think he's just trying to bet on himself.
  10. We definitely could've matched the offer sheet for Devonte. That being said - it's highly possible Devonte wanted to go somewhere and start. NOLA is offering him that option and with LaMelo, it's not an option here. So Charlotte could very well be giving Devonte what he wants and, at the same time, leveraging NOLA for the asset. If that's how it went down, that's good business. Getting a first round pick back for a 2nd round draft pick proves we have a really good player development program. I'm concerned about the guard depth now though.
  11. The first is more valuable I think - especially since we have one outgoing for Kai. Jaxson Hayes just got arrested for assault anyways. Not sure he's gonna be in the league much longer.
  12. Don't forget that Charlotte is projected to have over $20M coming off the books next off season. Terry, the Martins and McDaniels all expire. They'll have the money to pay for Miles. The year after that, Plumlee and Batum's stretch will roll off freeing up $16M. PJW is the extension candidate there. After that would be Devonte's hypothetical extension and Hayward's contracts rolling off just in time for the LaMelo max. The money is spaced out enough to where they can keep key guys even if they extend Graham for $13M this offseason.
  13. Want is one thing. I think teams will absolutely be willing to GIVE it to him. I agree a little bit on where you're coming from with Devonte, but that type of player is extremely valuable in a 7 game playoff series. I guarantee that Phoenix would have much rather had Devonte over Cameron Payne and Milwaukee would have definitely rather had him than Jeff Teague. I put value on the off court benefit Devonte provides too. Big culture boost for the team. I think $13-14M is fair for 3 years.
  14. John Hollinger is projecting 3 years for Graham at close to $19M!! I don't think he will command that much. Absurd lol. I do think he will be every bit of $13-14M per year for his next contract though. That would fill up the roster and eat up the rest of the cap space.
  15. Yes. It's lottery protected for the next 4 years I think. If it doesn't convey, it becomes two 2nd rounders. So basically we are protected from not giving up a lotto pick throughout the entire duration of Kai's rookie deal. Nice business there.
