Hornets not pursuing any more centers


Recommended Posts

Max for Terry would be awkward after Kemba but I'm not against it. The way his catch and shoot game has been improving he's a good to keep playing at a high level for at least one more long term contract I think.

that's the question Mitch has to deal with.. Miles and Terry hit the FA market next year.. Miles seems like he's in order for a decent payday next year but nowhere near the max.. Terry will be very expensive - and with us just investing a lottery 1st round pick into Bouknight - it seems like the writing is on the wall.. sadly , we might have to flip him at the trade deadline this year to make sure we get something back from him..

well if we're going to lose him, best to get something in return.

However, weren't we like 3rd in the division this year before melo got injured, and with Biz and Zeller as our centers?  If the team suddenly comes together, and we feel we can make a deep playoff run, it might be worth keeping him.

Any team that trades for him will have to sign him to a contract he agrees to, so it's not like we'll get a huge return.

I hate to be a pessimist but the future doesn’t look good. If LaMelo doesn’t want to stay, he will leave. Right now, there isn’t a lot we can surround the kid with. We just need to pray that he chooses to stay here when his contract runs out. Miles really need to step it up big time for me to feel comfortable giving him a new deal. Terry isn’t really worth a max deal here in Charlotte. Terry is good but isn’t an elite player that can put this team on his back and win a playoffs series. We need for Bouknight and Kai to be become stars like LaMelo or we will be drafting very high in the near future. 

I'm as pessimistic as the next guy - but Lamelo hasn't even begun his sophomore year and we already afraid he gone..? thats a lil much for me..

I think the future is as bright as it has ever been here.. Miles took a step at the end of last year when everyone was injured - and has developed a good relationship with Melo.. PJ is solid - but needs to become more consistent THIS YEAR and if we keep him at the 4 instead of the 5 - he should improve.. I also agree Bouknight or Kai has to develop quickly (within 2 years) - my bet is on Bouk.. and I would also bet that one of the 3 Bigs [Vern, Richards or Thor] will develop into a contributor of some sort..

we will see, but there is a lot of potential/talent on the roster and JB's staff has shown the ability to develop the talent it is given.. Ball + Bouk + Miles is a good core with vet help from Hayward and Rozier.. I'm so interested to see if Melo takes another step this year..

    • Toxicity that is the huddle fat shaming a lady….   but I approve 
    • Here's the overview of opponents' performance in converting 3rd & 4th downs.  (Note: The "made" attempts at right include any attempts where 1st downs were granted because of CAR penalties.  The "failed" numbers at the right include several 3rd / 4th attempts nullified by opponents' penalties. So the numbers on the right don't match the official game book stats where the penalties are ruled no play.)   And here is the running total for Weeks 1 & 2: Some observations: 1) Panthers are doing a great job in keeping defenses of 3rd/4th and long.  Basically 60% of all conversion attempts are in the 3rd & long category (I'll have exact yard averages per game later... the Saints had a number of WAY long attempts well beyond 3rd & long).  By contrast, only 40% of Panthers 3rd down attempts so far have been 3rd & long.  So well done! 2) I love that we're not just stopping 3rd & longs, but also stuffing opponents in 2/3 of all their short yardage attempts.  (By contrast Panthers are making close to 50% of their short 3rd down attempts).  And allowing 0 conversions on middle distance attempts.  So very nice! 3) We may worry about Panthers' Defense having let up in the 2nd half of games (especially versus the Jets), but it hasn't shown up in the 3rd down conversion stats.  Panthers are equally successful in stopping conversions in both halves, for the most part.
    • This here is the truth.  When we win consistently, playoff contender yearly, the media will rank us higher consistently and have more respect.
