    The more I think about it, the more a three-way trade of RFA makes sense..

    Golden State get Landry- giving them a frontcourt rotation of Bogut, Lee, Landry and Tyler

    Phoenix get Rush- they've currently got Dudley (who is really more of a SF) and Brown at SG- Rush starts at SG, move Dudley to SF

    New Orleans get Lopez- may as well get some value return on the asset (Landry), get to look at a 24yo C

    ..presuming all contracts small-ish (1-2 years)..

    He is the big that we need, then we'll be good
    New Orleans Pelicans-Seattle Seahawks-Atlanta Braves-Anaheim Ducks

    PERFECTION

    Baptize them in the water out of Scarface pool,
    And feed 'em from the table that held Corleone's food,
    If you die, tell them that you played my game
    I hope your bullet holes become mouths that say my name.

    lopez

    with a bench of: rivers (prob will start at some point in the season), miler, anderson, smith, thomas, dyson, x, depending on trades of course.

    I still think we're going to see an Anderson-Davis frontcourt, not that it really matters. It's all gonna depend on the matchup. Regardless, a frontcourt of Davis, Anderson, Lopez, and Smith would be fantastic. One of the best in the league for years to come, IMO.

    Anderson at 8Mil is a starter in this team though.

    getting paid 8 million and being a starter means nothing. he can have more minutes than a starter does and not actually start.

    Lopez would be a great off the bench 5, but guy shouldn't be a starter. Dude has one of the worst assist to TO ratios ever, and only had like 7 assists all year. He is slow footed and though he can defend the post, he is a slightly disappointing rebounder and can't really score well. Where Davis and Anderson will (hopefully) be fringe all stars, Lopez is a fringe starter. However, all that aside, he would be great depth.

    This is more of my mindset. Lopez is a solid player, but I don't see him as the missing piece. Even with our hole at the 5 spot. For the right price I'd gladly welcome the depth though.

    robin lopez had a PER of 15 last yr...he is a similar caliber of player to jason smith considering his superior post defense to smith

    cant have enough bigs...lopez and smith would be the best backup bigmen duo in the league

    After reading the Suns board I dont know if i want him anymore especially if his price is anything above 4mill per year.

    Past tense is the form of language used to refer to an event, transaction, or occurrence that did happen or has happened, or an object that existed, at a point in time before now. Compare with present tense, which refers to an event, transaction or occurrence which is happening now (or at the present time), or an object that currently exists.

    If we want to be technical, Woj said the Hornets 'have worked hard'. He didn't they say they're 'working hard'.

    Exactly... he would be a great addition off the bench... but this guy is by far not the great player everyone is billing him to be. I don't understand the love fest with him and Whiteside

    I've never been high on Robin Lopez but a change of scenery might help him. I don't guess he'd be bad off the bench. I would just hope the $ wouldn't be too crazy.

    I have not been a huge fan. However, he is much better than anything else available at the position and has the potential at 24 to get better.

    The word "Starter" is just a label... If the "starter" plays 20 minutes and the "backup" plays 28, then it doesn't matter who "starts".
