rumors about Porzingis


Recommended Posts

I hear you - what I am looking for is more of a defensive presence overall and someone with good hands that can catch the lobs and entry passes - something we haven't had in 1 player.. Biz was a good defender and decent shot blocker - but had stone hands.. and Zeller could rim run but wasn't a lob threat and was def was a defensive problem for us..

just look at this past series of the 76ers vs Hawks - Embiid is a unicorn but Capela is someone I think fits exactly what we need.. others are Brooke Lopez, Zubac, Ayton, Valanciunas, Nurkic, Vucevic..

The ones available this FA are Richaun Holmes, Jarrett Allen and a few trades are rumored..

The Hornets are currently in a win very soon mode, so considering the fact they may be able to trade for someone cheaper, like Myles Turner, it is possible that Porzingis may be a second option.

I wouldn't want one of the older guys. The timing doesn't really line up with the rest of the roster age wise, and there is also the mileage to consider.

Porzingis doesn’t help us enough with what we need, so I’d pass. That said we’ll probably do it 

Yeah. If Cho was still in charge, that would be a Hornets move with keeping Gordon on the team and giving up younger guys. Miles is a keeper. PJ is a maybe, but he could make a leap next year like Miles did this year.

I wasn't saying they are available - I was simply saying there still are BIGs in the game today that score in the post and gave a few examples.. the ones available this FA period are few - especially starter quality

Hopefully they are smarter than overpaying for one of those vets in FA. The team already has two young guys that they need to kick the tires on. They might be serviceable or better. They might be worse too. Either way, they need playing time to see what they are. Hopefully the team drafts the best available at 11 instead of trading the pick or more for a guy like Turner. Overpaying for a vet or in a trade for Turner would be a very Hornets move.

Could we still we interested in Porzingis? I really think that we are not done yet. Kup will probably make a play for a legit big man whether that be Lauri Markkanen, James Wiseman, Krisptaps Porzingis, Myles Turner or someone else. Here’s a thought with a three team trade involving sign and trade:

Charlotte receives: Kristaps Porzingis 

Dallas receives: Lauri Markkanen + Terry Rozier

Chicago receives: PJ Washington + pick(s) from Dallas 

 

PG LaMelo Ball, Ish Smith

SG Kelly Oubre, James Bouknight 

SF Gordon Hayward, Jalen McDaniels

PF Miles Bridges, Kai Jones

C Kristaps Porzingis, Mason Plumlee

 

Probably not the best lineup with two injury proned guys, but something to think about. 

I would hate to lose PJ and get a player that’s going to be injured half the year. PJ still has a lot of potential and could be set for a good year.

    • I remember that. Their special teams was historically bad. Like laugh out loud comically bad. 
    • Let the media dick-riding commence.  Just 3 weeks ago they all said we were going to get the Number 1 pick in the next draft and that Sam was the worst starting QB in the NFL.  How'd that work out for them?
    • This Article is from a Saints page... just FYI   Link: https://www.canalstreetchronicles.com/2021/9/21/22684609/new-orleans-saints-carolina-panthers-final-score-five-numbers-to-know-nfl-jameis-winston-nfc-south 64 - Would Brady have fared better? Jameis Winston looked abysmal on Sunday against the Carolina Panthers. The Saints’ quarterback completed 11 passes out of 22 attempts, for a measly 111 yards, no touchdowns and (gasp!) two interceptions. A little-known number that not many people will focus on his the fact that of his 28 dropbacks during the game, Winston was pressured 18 times. An unconscionable 64% pressure rate, which was also the highest of Winston’s entire NFL career. So while Jameis wasn’t great on Sunday, the offensive line did him exactly zero favors and should shoulder a big part of the blame for the Saints’ dismal offensive performance against the Panthers. 10 - All Good Things... With the loss to Carolina on Sunday, the Saints saw a 10-game division games winning-streak snapped. New Orleans had not lost an NFC South game since a 26-9 defeat (cue the eerily familiar score) at the hands of the Atlanta Falcons on week 10 of the 2019 season. Following that game, New Orleans won its remaining four division games of the 2019 season, then swept the NFC South in the regular season in 2020-21. It had to end at some point. The Saints now have the opportunity to start another winning-streak in the division. 6 - Do Not Adjust Your Screen Settings In the entire game against the 1985 Chicago Bears 2021 Carolina Panthers on Sunday, the New Orleans Saints had six first downs. You read that right: 6! Oh and one of them was via penalty, so on the field of play, the Saints had a whopping five first downs. The whole game! I’m not sure that I really need to add anything here. 0.6 - I Repeat, Do Not Adjust Your Screen Settings Alvin Kamara is one of the best running backs in the NFL. On Sunday in Charlotte, the Saints’ back averaged 0.6 yards-per-rush. Eight rushing attempts, for 5 yards. Oh and on his longest run of the day (which was a whole 5 yards) he nonchalantly went out of bounds instead of fighting to go north and get the lone yard he was missing to get a first down. Talk about a bad day at the office all around for New Orleans on Sunday. 60 - Welcome to Gillikin Island Alright, something positive to end this gloomy piece. Can you tell that I am falling in love with new Saints punter Blake Gillikin? Well, from the stink of the poop-fest that was the Saints’ play on Sunday at Carolina, emerged the very pleasant perfume of Blake Gillikin’s punting performance. The pinnacle of it came with 5:20 left in the first quarter, as the Saints had just recorded the first of their several three-and-outs. With the ball at New Orleans’ 16-yard line and Gillikin’s heels near his own one-yard line, the punter unleashed a booming 60-yard kick that made punt returner Alex Erickson retreat to his 24-yard line, before a short return to the Panthers’ 34-yard line. If you’re doing the math at home, from where Gillikin stood when he punted, the ball traveled about 75 yards in the air. A leg this strong means that punting is going to remain a weapon for the Saints for years to come. See, the sky is not falling yet.
