I love the trade for Diaw and Bell. Diaw is bring out the best of Wallace and Okafor. Our frontcourt is not the best in the world but it is definitely stable enough to get us into the playoffs. We still need help in the backcourt. Felton is going to leave us at the end of the season anyway. We need to trade him before it is too late to make a push for the playoffs. John Salmons would be amazing and the salaries work out so we could swap them straight up, but there is no way Sacramento would go for that. Packaging Felton, Morrison, and possibly May as an expiring contract could possibly land us a servicable two guard that seems to be the last piece of the puzzle.
I totally agree.........I think ,unfortunatley, Adam needs a new team(It hurts to say that.).
Larry Hughes will only piss us off at that price.
I'm not sure for who or where, but I'm 100% on for a Felton + Ammo/Matt + Nazr trade. I'd like to see us get an "old" point guard and a mid-career 2 guard in trade. I only say to get the point guard so that Sean and DJ have someone to look up to (besides Phil Ford and Larry obviously) and because I don't consider Shannon Brown someone I want running the point for a long stretch if there is an injury. Don't get me wrong, SB is a great guard, just not a PURE 1 spot.
my 2 cents, ymmv.
I don't have the creativity or interest to do the custom trade thingy, but there's no doubt more trading/roster overhauling will be needed, as has been obvious for most of the year. Ultimately, the depth of this team is so bad, they could use help at every position, but having a legit starting PG has been the most glaring need since the trade with PHX. No one within the organization or without thinks Raymond is the answer, so I've got to hope it's only a matter of time before he is traded; I think he'd be a tremendous backup PG for someone, so he's got to have some value.
Other than that, I can't see anybody wanting to touch Nazr or Matt or Ammo, etc. If we shipped one or more of those guys out with Raymond, we'd get less back in return than if we'd only traded Raymond; it might be worth it via addition by subtraction, but I can't imagine anyone wanting anything to do with those fellas, god bless 'em.
"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
Udrich is a bum - and they know it. They need a PG of the future, which is where Felton would slide in. He would probably do well playing next to a SG/SF tandem of Martin and Salmons.
just agreeing with other posts, how can we expect much (other than a project/young 2 guard) for ray when he is an good point and a lousy shooting/combo guard. we should use him to unload nazr or matt (preferably nazr) and we should be heady enough fans to know that is value. there is no way we will resign him to a big deal, every team in the league knows that, so any cap relief we can parlay from him is to the upmost advantage to us. especially heading into the summer 09 free agency. everyone is gearing up for 2010, so an offer from a terrible franchise like us looks alot better in 09 than 10.
