If this trade takes place the Hornets will go from, at best, a 6th seed in the west and a 1st round exit to a possible non playoff team, but one of the most exciting to watch in the NBA.
Im starting to like this trade. Im convinced that we need to start rebuilding, what better players to build around than VC and BD. In the mean time we can try to make some trades to find a servicable center and if not we will still be fun to watch.
This trade brings a bright future. Mash can be traded or bought out which leaves more cap room to sign FA. Heres a list of FA in 2005.
Then in 2006 more cap space with the contract of J.Rose expiring. Heres a list fo FA in 2006.
**Im not sure how accurate these FA listings are because in 2006 they have Mo Pete as a FA with the Hornets.
