Kyle Korver? Though the 4 team starting thing comes into question, unless you count preseason for Atlanta

1) will committing to a salary keep you from offering a max deal. Vasquez' $2.1M doesn't hit the cap space as hard as Henry and Aminu's $3M and $4M.
2) Is the qualifying offer more than the player could get on the open market? Just like Beli and Jason Smith. Demps knew he could get Smith much cheaper than the QO and he did. The same thing may well happen with Aminu. No one will complain about Aminu being an 8th man if he's on a deal similar to Smith's.
"I'm not going to allow my putative owner to answer that question, this is an NBA related press conference. Paul Tagliabue and Roger Goodell have collectively sung their praises of Tom and if uh ESPN has a problem with that tell Mr. Skipper to call me at my office."
I like the 50/50 aspect....either we do something or we don't....

This is NOT the guy that I know Dell offered a package for today, but how would people feel about:
Henry, Warrick, and Vasquez for Jose Calderon (1 yr rental)
Calderon doesn't play a lick of defense but he can run a team and will keep the turnovers under control
Go out and sign Gary Forbes and Jon Brockman at league mins to fill the roster spots. Three upgrades IMO
Love it. I followed the Raps for a long time and calderon is a great leader and pg.
Calderon meanwhile would be a nice player to have this year, but I'd rather think long term over short term. Also, I'm not sure if Calderon would be too happy playing in New Orleans. Considering we already have the possibility of Gordon not wanting to be here, having 2 starters not wanting to be here potentially is just not good to me when rebuilding.
Vasquez brings a lot of intangible qualities to the team and while he's been disappointing this preseason, I think the addition of Gordon to the starting line up and more time with the new team will greatly benefit Vasquez. And quite honestly, even if the turnovers do continue, I'm okay with that. It'll lead to a better draft pick this draft and that's always good
[Insert generic "if you don't want to read about a rumor don't click on the thread" comment here]
Doesn't bother me any. If I'm busy, I don't click on the thread. If I'm bored, I do. As long as it's labeled properly, it's all good.
I wish I could just listen in on all of Dell's conversations.

That trade McNamara posted would be pointless.
Basically, we'd end up with a slightly better record (lower draft pick), and fewer future assets. It'd be a terrible trade for the current Hornets' situation. Only way I could se it is if the Raptors throw in a first rounder. But that's basically tied up with the Rockets (now Thunder) for the next half a decade.
Because we are a young team, we need to run. Calderon excels at the lob pass. I think Calderon would be a much needed boost to the team. Imagine all of the alley-opps to AD23 and the chief this year?
