The Hornets can probably get him if they just trade Aminu for him.
Either way, Lopez or not, the Hornets need to find a true center so they can handle Asik when he comes to town
I hope they can land Lopez...I think it will allow Davis to develop quicker, the more he plays at the 4.
Never has $7 million/year come up other than this thread where one guy said it then everyone just started parroting it.

Lopez peeps said that they thought he could retrieve aboout 7 million on the open market !
The Market has pretty much dried up. He's not getting anywhere near 7 mil in the open market.
Tune in on Fridays at 12 noon for Sport-a-Facts with Ro Brown and Wednesdays at 1pm for Sports Revolution to hear me speak my mind on all things Saints and Pelicans related and more.
Only on WBOK 1230 AM.
Feel free to PM me for more details.

@TheCatLockwood I dont see it happening, NO not offering much at all
Man, you guys are really desperate thinking we need a C so bad. Lopez is pretty bad. Seriously, have any of you actually watched him play? He's not good no matter how you try to spin it. Plus he's a headcase.
If Jason Smith is worth $2.5 million, then Lopez is maybe worth a $1 million. I know, I know, market for big men, 7 footers, blah blah. Whatever. Just because Morey is a moron and pays Asik like he's half decent doesn't mean we should blow $4-5 million on a mediocre talent.
NBA GMs are dumb. If we could find a productive guy like Smith at his price tag, we can find another. I'd rather not have a center at all than pay Lopez more than $2 million because the bottom line is the dude is not very good.
Woj twitter: hornets, suns an wolves are nearing a 3 team trade that would send robin Lopez to the hornets in a sign an trade
Nice... hope we don't dish out too much for him... or overpay
Lopez may have an opinion of his value that may need recalibration. Since all 3 parties have to agree here, he seems to be sticking point given our needs and their needs.

I hope we aren't giving up too much...
