Thread: [Official - trade complete] Hornets Trying to Land RFA Lopez from the Suns {merged}

  1. #1301
    Well, we bought the center needed and I think Lopez is a good choice. Now it's only an SF missing: will it be Matt Barnes ?

    Agree 100% percent.

    It's not that bad: Lopez, Davis, Anderson, Vasquez, Gordon.

  4. #1304
    I'd imagine with Lopez now in the mix, the lineup is going to look something like:

    Vasquez/Rivers/Roberts
    Gordon/Henry/Rivers
    Aminu/Miller/Henry/Thomas
    Davis/Anderson/Smith/Thomas/Warrick
    Lopez/Anderson/Smith

    There should, however, be a ton of lineups with both Anderson and Davis playing together. Whether that's at 4 and 5, 4 and 3, or 5 and 3, will depend on the opposing team, and the rotations Monty comes up with.

    I could see it. Davis' unique skillset might allow the Hornets to start three bigs if they so choose, since he might be able to play the 3 due to his guard experience prior to his UK time.

    His offensive 'wing' skills, I can't imagine any drop off from Aminu for sure, so we wouldn't be sacrificing much.

    EDIT TO ADD: Not to mention the fact that Anderson's ability to shoot better than a 3 or 4 makes this alignment more possible.

  6. #1306
    Anderspn(possibly), Aminu, Thomas, Miller, Henry can all play SF, no need for a SF. Another guard is a much bigger priority.

  7. #1307
    Dell wasn't lying when he said they wanted to get bigger.. Robin Lopez, Anthony Davis, Ryan Anderson, and Jason Smith is bringing size and length to the big easy.

    yea sifting through 50 pages is a hassle, but I think its amazing that this board managed to generate a 50 page thread on Robin Lopez. That thread just goes to show how excited and reenergized the fanbase of this team is. The forum activity over the past few months has been awesome. Never thought I'd see this many people posting and browsing but its great!! Is it wrong of me to be more excited about the upcoming NBA season than the NFL season?!?!

    Well he will definately have his fair shot. This is the best chance he will ever get.
    Monty, Dell, and Benson: OUR big 3!

    if we get a decent backup 2, our lineup is pretty much complete.

  11. #1311
    We're really long from the 3-5. Makes up for our undersized back-court.

  12. #1312
    Now we need to move Henry for a more dependable backup SG. If w keep Henry, he will just be a slasher who gets to the foul line and nothing more. If that's what Monty thinks is a good fit, then I'm all for it. It just seems we need someone to have a more reliable shot with so many bigs.

    A slasher is much harder to find than a shooter.

    Actually, with the backcourt as curently constructed (Vasquez 6'6, Rivers 6'4, Gordon 6'3, Henry 6'6) Gordon is the only undersized one assuming you keep rivers at the 1.

    Found the answer to my own question on Larry Coon's websight. A traded player, if waived, can't resign with the team that traded him for one year. So I guess Dyson won't be back.

    Hopefully Dell can find a taker for Henry, we can dump him on a team with cap space for a 2nd round pick to free up cap space. Then we can sign Jodie Meeks to a cheap 1year 2mill deal. We can probably get Hassan Whiteside and Meeks for about 3mill total at this point in free agency.

    You're right. For some reason I overlooked Vasquez.

    I agree. There's been quite a few big threads lately. Shows that people are obviously excited and have lots to say. And no it's not 'wrong' of you to be more excited about the upcoming NBA season than the NFL season. You can feel excited about whatever you want to feel excited about.

    True. He will be nice to have if we need to get someone's big in foul trouble. I like the size he put on but obviously he has not worked on his shot. He is more of a 3 but do we even have money to get a true backup SG? He is arguably the most expendable piece we have.

    I LOVE IT!!!
    I hate these bad analyses by the fans. Are the Suns better after the trade than before? Yes.

    That is all that matters.

    The degree to which others improve is immaterial, unless we are competing for the title (we are not).

    Usually I'm way into my posting on saintsreport, approaching 9,500 posts there kind of shows that, but I'm still going strong here. Feels good to be excited.

    It didn't seem like they were going to use the rest of their cap space on anyone else. It's really a good deal for them. Taking on expirers for a 1st round pick and the possibility of a young athletic wing panning out. It's a win/win for them imo.
