    Smith is now a possibility considering that we could realistically compete for the West next year. Before today, the Hornets were not thought of as contenders, something that would have been unattractive ot Smith.

    If TC were healthy, I seriously, seriously doubt we'd be trying to deal him. His downside remained a lack of offensive game. He tried to show us something early last year, but all he did was clank the rim when he shot the ball from beyond 3'. Even with that downside, I don't think the Hornets would be trying to move him IF he were healthy. The Hornets believe that he is not healthy enough for the long-term prospect. Are they right? I don't know, but they certainly are acting like they are convinced that their opinion on TC's prognosis is correct.

    i agree, just saying overpaying for glen davis so that boston wouldn't match wouldn't be productive. if they could get warrick for something fair who would be a change of pace from david west with his athleticism or a banger who would play inside the paint area which also would be another change of pace from dwest would help.

    DX/Okafor/Warrick or Diogu is a pretty nice frontline.

    I like the idea of Okafur, West, & Wright in the front court. Now having made this move could we trade Daniels for a backup big? or just sign Warrick or Joe Smith and we have a good little team for next year.

    CP3/Collison
    Butler/Thornton
    Wright/Posey
    West/Warrick or Smith
    Okafur/Armstrong

    Devin Brown, Mo Pete, Sean Marks, and Antonio Daniels sounds like a nice roster to me.

    Saying we don't give up JuJu and we add Warrick

    Collison
    Thornton
    JuJu
    Warrick
    Armstrong

    How could we afford Smith or Warrick considering the team is already over the luxury tax. The only way we could afford one of them if we dump Peterson or Daniels contract on someone else.

    I think they call it the Mid Level Exception and the Bi-Annual Exception. The Lakers were over the luxury tax too when they signed Artest.

    If you haven't already seen my trade proposal I said...

    Hornets send:

    Chandler
    Butler
    Peterson

    Bobcats send

    Okafor
    Mohammed
    Bell

    Considering it seems to be a straight swap between Chandler and Okafor, I don't see how the team would be sending over Peterson or Butler

    I want this deal completed already...its halting any further progress in my day...I cannot leave my pc!

    What if Chandler doesn't pass the physical?

  19. #194
    Holy effing crap ... I wasn't on the internets for a couple of hours and just read the headline on ESPN. If that were to go down, I'd open a shrine for Bower and worship him every day.

    Please for the love of everything thats holy ... let it happen!

    I could definitely see a smaller part, i.e., Daniels being included for someone like Mohammed

    Me too. Very interesting. If we could get rid of Brown and MoPete somehow with this trade, I'd be happy.

    I'm gonna have to rescind my Kangaroo Court front office line cuz of this.

    Though I probably don't have to since it didn't make any sense anyway.
