    I just want to compare-

    Now:
    PG-Baron Davis
    SG-David Wesly
    SF-George Lynch
    PF-Pj Brown
    C-Jamal Magloire


    After:
    PG-Baron Davis
    SG-Jalen Rose
    SF-Vince Carter
    PF-PJ Brown
    C-Jabari Smith(6-11, 240)

    I'm going for worst case center. Now does Magloire defend better than Jabari? I don't know, Magloire isn't exactly known for his defense. I know he's not quicker, few people are slower. Mags isn't any bigger.

    You lose a 10 ppg scorer, and gain two 20+ per game scorers.

    It's not like trading Magloire means we play with four people next year. Shoot, we could sign a 7 foot plus guy and actually gain size. Magloire is kindof undersized really.

    And again, this is only ONE year. Who knows what the future holds?

    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.

    HH has already hinted that this trade was offered 3 years ago, stop talking about it if there is real trade talks HH will deem it worthy to talk about, when HE first hears about it.

    I wonder what our second GM Baron Davis has to say about this?
    Trade Mags & Rodgers for Lamar Odom

    we all know you are going nowhere without rebounding...but we also went nowhere WITH rebounding...so i like this deal more and more the more i think about it...

    HORNETS would still have the MLE to sign a very decent big man...

    You know what? Make the fricken trade.. and just hope we can sign a Center. If we can't, then oh well.. Because like, honestly, I don't think we're ready to be great contenders in the West anyway. So we might as well have a little fun.. I can't imagine a more fun team to watch than BD, Carter, Rose (and maybe even a little BIIIIRDMAN). We'll get media attention and respect, we'll get high attendance and the Hornets won't have to leave in a few years. The only thing I'm worried about is Rose's contract. Just imagine BD tossing an alley oop pass to Carter and having him reverse dunk it in. And picture Birdman with the crazy hair too. And Rose? uhh..... yeah.

    I'm excited about the prospect of having ANYONE on the team that can finish an alley oop. I remember the one time Baron forgot that Magloire can't jump, and threw an alley oop pass off of the backboard while Magloire clumsily flailed his arms and grabbed the rim, never touching the ball.

    Picture BD throwing an alley opp to VC and then VC throwing it off the board to J.Rose then J.Rose throws it off the shot clock then JR.Smith grabsit off the clock and missing the dunk, then there is no big man there to grab the offensive rebound



    had to get that one in Seriously, Im starting to warm up to the trade for reasons I mentioned above.

    That would be great!

    I think we are seeing this trade as fans only. We need to view it from a Shinn's perspective. Getting Vince Carter to go along with BD and Birdman means sellouts every night which = more $$$.

    Fans care about:
    1. wins
    2. exciting gameplay/superstars

    Owners care about:
    1. $$$
    2. More $$$
    3. Wins

    Rebounds from missed dunks are usually out on the perimeter and boarded by guards

    Like I said earlier, the Western Conference is now a SG and PF conference.

    I don't want our starter at SG (6'1 DW) to hold (in our divison along) 6'6 Michael Finley, 6'7 Tracy McGrady, 6'6 Manu, and 6'5 Bonzi Wells. We need a tall superstar SG. If we can sign Keon Clark and another PF to the MLE, we should make this trade.

    My wish would be to replace P.J. with Mash and DW though.

    has anyone forgotten that we can trade rose when/if we get him for a center!
    and if mash passes his pychical we can trade him for a pf!!

    Maybe I'm underestimating our market, but I don't know if VC guarantees sellouts. No question he helps attendance, but fans still want a winner. This whole thing is spiraling out of control btw.

    i think the Wiz sold out every game in MJ's tenure and the were a real loser...HORNETS wouldn't be this bad...i'm pretty sure he would sell tix alone by himself...

    Old enough that GerryV said yesterday that the Hornets had rejected it.

    If that proposal is true, a starting roster of BD, Carter, Rose, Brown, and FA Keon Clark will give us atleast 49 wins.

    That trade propsal might be rejected, but they could still be talking about adding other players to the deal.
