    Couldn't agree more. You have to pick your poison. Rebounding is a hard poison for me to pick though, because it effects so many aspects of the game. But again, the Hornets are getting absolutely nothing from their small forwards currently, so a small forward who can knock down the corner three, get out in transition, and defend in isolation is fine in my book

    Come to think of it if you get Chase, you are turning into the Dwight Howard led Orlando Magic, only with Dwight howard light in AD. Think about it, a bunch of chuckers JJ Reddick=Buddinger, Shard Lewis=Ryno, Vince Carter < Gordon, Nelson> GV/Rivers, bench's are equall. I don't know if that is how I would want my team built.
    If you Jimmer it, they will come.

    I doubt Utah would trade him but I would love Gordon Hayward

    I can't believe anyone wants to trade a potentially #1 or top 3 draft pick

    poythress is an animal on the glass, he's also pretty fluid with his handling showing descent wing skills and good quickness and agility. Nerlens is actually the least impressive of the 3 kentucky prospects right now.

    I still think point guard is a bigger issue. I don't believe in Austin as a pg and i think we need a shot creator at that position and use sf as a glue guy like SA does.

    I wonder why the Hornets haven't given James Anderson a call.

    There's no way Demps would trade our pick with out some sort of protection on it (definitely top-3, probably top-7, and maybe even lottery protected).

    i think it's the fact that our PG can now play off the ball which makes them more tolerable. Gordon plays the initiator now and it makes a world of difference, GV looked good on kicks and we just need a 3-point shooting/defending SF and it'll make a world of difference

    He reminds me a lot of Melo but at 6'8 240 he can play the 3 in the NBA.

    I personally dont see any way Bennett can play three in the NBA. Definitely cant cover 3's. Maybe he can extend his shot out to three and play it on offense, but he doesnt have the foot speed to cover the position

    He's not a 3. His game isn't remotely close to Anthony. He's a PF through and through.

    I disagree, you can't count on Gordon for all the play making, sometimes he'll go cold. That's where your pg comes in, most small forwards don't have the court vision to make plays for others. Most are just scorers. I'd much rather get a good point guard, Grevis is a great bench pg though.

    Rumors are that Toronto are trying to get rid of Lowry. Anyone think this is possible? Toronto gets our 2013 1st round pick (top-3 protected). They get Vasquez, who can be their PG of the future, and they can try to do something with Aminu and Henry, and if it doesn't work out, just let them expire. Ross plays SF for us, and Lowry starts at PG.

    I'm very interested in acquiring Lowry for the right price.

    Something like our first round pick, Vasquez, JSmith, and Aminu for Lowry and Ed Davis would be pretty nice too. Granted I'm not sure how realistic such a trade scenario would be.....

    "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 don't think Lowry is worth that much.

    In other words, I wouldn't give up assets for him and absorb a bad contract or two on his behalf.

    I like where you are going, but this makes more sense to me. Kings get our 2013 pick (top-7 protected).

    leiza's contract is only thru next yr and we would be underpaying for our starting pg thru next yr, allowing us to better absorb leiza's contract
