    Media Pending League Final Rule

    Pending the NBA giving its blessing..

    1. Baron Davis to Golden State

    2. Dale Davis & Speedy Claxton to New Orleans( Davis final year and Claxton two more)

    3. 500,000 cash

    4. plus the Higher Lottery Pick( If the lucky ball gives GS the lets say #1 pick and the Hornets are #3...the Hornets get the #1 ( swap )

    talk to ya at 4pm today..sports radio 1280...Dan D at the acme oyster house with me tonite on vets.
    1-What does not move is dead.What has speed,and mobilty has more possibilities,more life...quickness creates luck.

    2- Your Defense is only as good as your HELP/ROTATING defenders.

    3-Games are won while the ball is in the air.


    4- You design your roster to win a 7 game series not a one game confrontation.

    I want an extra pick not just the higher pick. Now I do not think it is a good deal.

    maybe they can use that $500k to buy a new juke box for the arena.

    darn. that really isn't that great of a deal in my opinion. i think we should have gotten their lottery pick, or at LEAST their second rounder for the next two years.

    that kind of sucks.

    Royally. But what else would be expected when you are fan of a New Orleans' professional sports team?

    I don't like the pick swap.

    I'm just not excited Harvey! I know you didn't like him but now, who can name anyone on our team outside of New Orleans. Simply, not excited.

    It means we definitely will not get a lottery pick from GS. It just means that if they get #1 and we get #2, we swap positions (i.e. we get the higher of the two picks).

    We will probably finish with the worst record, Dale Davis will be gone after this season so we essentially traded BD for Sppedy Claxton and 500K.

    Yeah great move.

    To be taken to the cleaners by Chris Mullin is an absolute embarrasment.

    If the HORNETS get the higher pick there will be no extra player, right!?

    It would suck if the Hornets get like #1-2 and GSW gets #2-3...if that happened then the Hornets wouldnt get any pick out of the deal, it would basically be Davis+Claxton for Davis.

    I have no problem with the pick swap . . . what are we going to do build this team with only draft picks from 2005 draft pool?

    To be honest we can't afford to take the risk of having two first round picks, it would be very expensive wasting a roster spots on multiple draft picks. I'll gladly take the higher pick of the two, and get the rest of my roster in FA. Think about it, do you really want two or three draft picks. Most 2nd rounders don't make the team anyway.

    If the Warriors draft below us, then we get nothing for that portion of the deal?

    Awful trade. With there pick its a good one, without it we should have walked away. So bad.

    We need more the Speedy Claxton. Cap space can't score points or play defense.

    There is no extra player or pick either way. It is simply a swap of positions.
