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.
