definitely upgrade over najera
"The Charlotte Hornets name has been a mainstay throughout the region for many years, and we are excited to announce our intention to re-establish this historic brand. We believe that its return will galvanize our fan base by unifying our loyal Bobcats fans with those who have strong memories of our city's NBA predecessor." MJ, 5-21-13
I think everyone is overlooking the fact that Louis can play Center too. With Larry's new found love for small ball, if we sign this guy he would be a definite upgrade over Diaw when we do run that set (considering he actually can play a little center and is a workhorse).
I do think this signals Diaw is on the way out. Diaw+Dampier+DJ needs to bring us a starting point guard, a young center, and maybe even a draft pick or two.
He'd be the other end of the PF spectrum that Fabio brought...I mean Walter Herrmann. More scrappy hustle and less ackward running and throwing up 3 pointers.
All he needs is about 100 more tattoos and he could be Birdman in the Eastern Conference.
