    I'm willing to take that risk.

    STOP THE ROBIN LOPEZ TRADE SCENARIOS!!!!!

    I do not know I just want this team to improve somehow.

    Lopez is the perfect trading chip on a team such as ours.

    Not really in the long term planning but playing out of his mind this season on a pretty decent contract.

    Plenty of contenders would be pretty interested in acquiring his services and his trade value would be sky high right now.

    I'm sure Dell sees this too and I expect him to be dealt quite soon.

    If his values right, move him. But what i like about him is that we can play him 20 minutes some nights and most starting centers wouldn't be cool with that. Anderson and Davis need minutes and if you brought in a guy like Cousins, I don't see where the minutes for Anderson come from unless he sees some time at SF

    If you get a good value trade then move him, but if not then there's no rush. He's playing well, young and cheap but he's far from untouchable.

    Why the idea of a piece worth X to us being sent out for a piece or pieces worth X+something, considering contracts, is offensive. You can't just keep every piece worth something.

    Bledsoe comes off the bench and has never had to run a team as a leader and front guard. Calling him a difference maker is a bit far fetched right now and not worth getting rid of the only true big the Hornets have right now.

    Davis taking over at center is at least 2 seasons away.

    Thats exactly how it works on message boards. Trade, lose for lottery picks, then trade some more.

    To be fair, there's not much else to talk about right now. I'm not really the type to make fake scenerios, but i wish the people who were making them would think about it from the other team's perspectives. There seems to be a bit of hypocracy with people complaining about trades that other team's fanbases post in concerns for Ryno for potato chips, but then we do the same exact thing here. Everyone can make up some excuse why a trade will work: Kings are tired of Cousins; Hornets don't have a use for Ryno bc they keep losing. But rarely does it actually make sense for the other fan base.

    How do you know that Lopez is not in the future plans? Did the Hornets state that or is that a fan rumor?

    Just my opinion really. You are not going to win a Ship with Robin as your starting centre.

    Why not. He starts but he only plays 20-25 minutes a game. That's backup minutes, and I believe you need a Robin Lopez type player coming off the bench to win in this league.

    This guy is only 24 and suffered a lot of injuries, but his post game looks better and better each week. He is a defensive rock, and the past two games have seen an uptick in his rebounding.

    I'm not willing to trade our only Center on the team for anything other than a true scoring SF, and I don't see where that scenario happens.

    Plus Lopez's contract is perfect for this team. If at any point we find we don't need his services, almost any team in the league would love to have Lopez on his contract. He is an asset, yes, but for now, he is an asset worth keeping.

    Technically, Lopez starts, but he is really our 3rd big.

    Absolutely not.

    Really? I thought everyone wanted a small forward just like him. Big , very athletic with a great jumpshot, for a small forward I don't see us getting too much more for him, I really want Evan turner or chandler parsons tho but that would take way more than just lopez

    Buddinger had a season ending injury, and he'll be an RFA next year, so we can get him on the cheap. Even if Buddinger were healthy, we still would never trade Lopez for him straight up. A true 7-footer that plays defense and has a PER of nearly 20 is quite valuable around the league.

    I agree but people like parsons turner derozan and others i do t think could be had for lopez, what about Budinger and their 1st rounder for lopez and Aminu or greivis

    Looks like you need some math help, nonmath boy.

    Player (MPG)

    Anderson (33.0)
    Davis (31.2)
    Lopez (26.3)
    Smith (17.7)

    No need to thank me. I do it for the love of the game.

    You sure can. That is just one spot out of 4. More precisely just one spot out of a 8/9 man rotation.

    The Hornets problems are not at center.
