Keep him. Odds are Monk will be playing elsewhere next season since JB and Cliff had jerked him around so much before this season. Plus, JB seems to love the guy, which means Graham will be getting a lot of minutes once he returns from injury.

Graham is a RFA at the end of this season and he's gonna get paid.  The question is, will it be the Hornets who pay to keep him?  I don't know.

This is a big deal...if they don’t plan to pay him, he is tradable

I would gage how much Monk is going to cost this summer, if you think you can re-sign him then Graham is the odd man looking in.

At this point in time, I like Monk more than Graham if I had to choose one. 

 

Graham got a lot of buckets when he was getting more volume but he has not looked good this year. He pretty much just Leeroy Jenkins it any time he touches the ball.

I'd rather slap 5 mil on Monk.  I doubt we need to match anyone for him.

Devonta needs to get traded.  Even if it's not the ideal value as we'll likely get nothing for him otherwise.

Monk will DEF cost more than $5m.. his qualifying offer is $7.3m alone.. But with the way he has been playing - I assume someone will try to scoop him up with a better offer..

Malik Beasley got a deal of 4yrs $60m ($15m avg) last year and they have about the same stats.. if we want to keep Monk, we might have to give him a 4 year $48-$50m deal..

keep in mind Terry and Bridges will be coming up the year after.. and Batum's $9m we stretched for 2 more years 🤬..

If we hold still at trade deadline and don't make any moves:
Cody + Biz + Graham = $20.6m in cap space at end of year
Do we want to retain Monk for $12m-$13m of our space and take the remaining $7m and find a big man?

Malik Monk at $12mil/yr for the next 4 years = yes please.  Steal.

Just never been sold on Monk.  Guy has shown flashes, but has been remarkably inconsistent.  I don't think we you pay him 12 mil a year for 4 years for a few decent months of basketball.

I don't like that Monk's growing up just happened to have occurred in a contract year. Monk reminds me a little of Tyrus Thomas in the contract year play. I don't think the Hornets will make the same mistake twice because Monk will probably be looking to leave the team anyway, if for no other reason, than a chance to start. He won't get that as a Hornet as long as Terry, Devonte, and Melo are playing in Charlotte.

Malik Monk turned 23 last month.  When he came out he was considered the most athletic player in the draft, the best scorer in the draft, and the best shooter in the draft.  Read that again and then look at some of the guys in that class (Bam, Tatum, Fox, Mitchell, Booker, Collins, Allen).  Monk started showing it last year and it’s continued into this year.  

The NBA is all about upside.  That’s why you draft 19 year olds with lottery picks.  Malik Monk has as much upside as any player in this league, nevermind when comparing him against a Devonte Graham or Cody Zeller.

Lock Malik up to a reasonable deal ($12mil-$14mil/yr) and watch him blossom into a *superstar* paired with LaMelo from age 23-27.  Those are the prime years and why you draft a 19 year old in the lottery to begin with.

    • Basically, Darnold does really well after the play breaks down, but that was the only time he was given the authority to go off script.  A QB who sees something should be given that authority.  It keeps everyone guessing--including your WRs and OL.  For example, if the qb can call a hot route at the LOS, do it.  If he sees the CB cheat toward the intended WR, throw it to the WR he vacated---etc.  I am getting excited about Darnold and Brady with CMC and a few weapons.  I am happy about Elfein at LG.  (Maybe he becomes the C, but for now, LG). Get that LT...slot WR...CB.  Those are the 3 picks we needed from the Jets.
    • A lot of times when coaches are scouting a player, they notice another player in the process.  So when we sign players from the same team, I try to figure it out.  Why take 2 players off a team with a terrible offense?  So I figured, "We were doing our due diligence on Darnold and Elfein may have been that "other" player.  So when I was watching this, I started watching #67.  Why would we give him a 3-year deal?  I get it.  He is solid.  at the 8 minute mark, he takes a DT to his left with his right arm alone.  Later, a DT tries to cross his face and swim over him, and drags him 5 yards down the LOS, allowing Darnold to run for about 20 yards. (9 min mark).   There are other plays, but I did not see him get beat---he was on a BAD OL and he held his own.  He may need to anchor vs. the bull rush a bit, but I am sold. I am actually taking LG off my list of concerns.
