Hornets forward Gordon Hayward hurt

Recommended Posts

The Charlotte Hornets’ four-game winning streak ended with a thud and an injury to a significant player.

The Dallas Mavericks jumped on the Hornets early at Spectrum Center for a 104-93 victory, ending the Hornets’ longest winning streak in two seasons. Mavericks star Luka Doncic dominated, with 34 points, 13 rebounds and nine assists.

Of potentially greater importance long-term, Charlotte small forward Gordon Hayward, who has played at an All-Star level, left the game in the third quarter with a left hip strain. He did not return after scoring 16 points.

Hayward, a free-agent acquisition of huge impact, is the Hornets’ leading scorer in a 6-6 start, averaging 22.5 points, 5.2 rebounds and four assists.

Terry Rozier led the Hornets in scoring with 18 points and added six rebounds. P.J. Washington had 16 points, 10 rebounds and six assists.

I saw a lot of concern over his health when he was signed. This doesn't exactly quell those concerns.

This could actually be a blessing in disguise. I love our roster but do believe that we need another draft. I know that some guys hate to lose, throw games away or tank. This team could be something very special if we can land Jalen Green or Mobley. 

I want to make the playoffs this yr...if things go well we could finish 5th or 6th, well 6th is likely our ceiling

I rather have a high pick. Mobley alone could make us a top 5 team in the East.

We definitely need to address the paint. LaMelo damn near leads the team in rebounds.

I’m fine with losing as long as we are using minutes to develop talent like Lamelo and Vernon Cary. Losing while giving the Martin twins 30+ minutes makes me want to break things.

    • Would it have to be either/or? If Pitts and either Sewell or Slater were there at #8, everybody here is voicing opinions as to why one is better than the other. Why not have our cake, and then go ahead and eat it, too. Take Pitts at #8, then trade our 2nd round pick, plus our #1 in 2022, to Denver, and get the OT we need with their #9.  (If you experts in swap values think that's not enough, add to it until it is.) Balls to the wall, boys.  If you all think Sewell/Slater are #1 picks this year (and they are), then they're equally worth next year's #1.
    • Well, that was kind of dumb since the scenarios are completely different. You don't need a mediocre vet to mentor another vet. Likely means probably, odds on or possibly. Since you didn't link the article, likely because it makes no sense after the Darnold threa, I have to make an assumption which is very plausible since there was a ton of discussion about us drafting a QB at 8 or trading up until SF made their trade. Time to read. I said worst case was that we would only save $8M by releasing him. $18M new cap hit minus $10M guaranteed that we'd have to pay on release equals $8M. Again, worst case is we only save $8M by releasing him and having to pay the guarantee. Way more than a zero chance of the last scenario. If we can trade Teddy, that scenario happens, period, simple as that. Amazing that you think there is no chance that Teddy gets release or traded after we made a trade for Darnold and committed to paying him in 2022.
