Simple - Draft his Indiana boy Cody Zeller in the 2013 draft and all talk of him leaving will be moot. EJ is about all things IU... heck I bet if Isiah Thomas was our GM, as bad as he is, you'd hear nothing of the Gordon talk.
PG - Gravy, Roberts
SG - EJ, Rivers
SF - Anderson, Aminu, Miller
PF - Davis, Smith, Thomas
C - Zeller, Lopez
I love the Hornets, but now am all on board with the PELS.... Geaux Pelicans!
Gordon will be pretty down when we suck for Shabazz then.
Here is a better way to make him happy: just make sure his checks clear.
How to make EJ happy?
- Play better then Suns,
- play better then Pacers,
- limit Rivers minutes to 15~,
- A.D. have to win Rookie Of The Year,
- improve 3PT defence,
- get SF.
Eric Gordon has played only ten games for the Hornets and some how the hornets has to make him happy? what a crazy world we live in
I would take Cody Zeller or Victory Oladipo out of IU. Zeller is a fantastic scorer and could be a great 3rd big man. Oladipo is a great athlete who can score in a lot of ways and defend multiple positions. I think either of these players could help us out immediately as bench players. Zeller requires no less than a top-5 pick, while Oladipo is a mid to late lottery guy, making him a more likely option if we improve with Gordon as we hope.
Here's a highlight video:
I guess I'm the only pro-Luol Deng type around here. Must be cuz I'm not afraid of his contract.
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.
I want Deng on this team. We need him!
People's Basketball Sim League presents...
1992-93 Season Record: 52-30
C Kevin Willis | PF Otis Thorpe | SF Robert Horry | SG Dell Curry | PG Johnny Dawkins
Key Reserves: Robert Parish | Anthony Mason | Walter Davis | Terry Porter
Name all the skills you want in a SF and Deng checks out.
Good size and length? He's 6'8.5" and 220lbs with a 7' wingspan.
Offense? Double check.
Only "negatives" is that he's 27 going on 28. And carries a $12 mil salary number for the next two seasons. If it was 2014, he'd be a valuable expiring.
I'm gonna need someone to talk me down from him more, cuz I'm not at all convinced why it's not a good idea. Is he not as on the table as previously thought?
