    Once Hill and Lowery sign we will see just how much we outbid ourselves. As noted above Teague and Mills signed, and neither of them received crazy numbers because those gms don't have the crap record that Demps does.
    If you Jimmer it, they will come.

    This is a terrible decision. We just overpaid for an overrated player. On top of that, the Pels are stuck with him for 5 years.
    The most overused words on Pelicansreport.com. Wrongly, I might add.

    ELITE - (often used with a plural verb) the choice or best of anything considered collectively, as of a group or class of persons.

    GREAT - notable; remarkable; exceptionally outstanding

    These words should not be used lightly

    I'm sorry, maybe it's just me, but I'll take Jrue at 25 over Teague at 19 every day of the week. yet, everyone is praising the wolves and killing us for the respective deals. IMHO in a market that gives Jeff Teague 19m a year, Jrue is worth 25.

    The advanced metrics support Teague being a much more efficient player. Jrue has more upside but Teague produces more efficiently.

    It's not as easy as looking at the average. Teague is a 2+1. Holiday is a 4+1 with incentives. So, Holiday's deal could be upwards of $68-$112 million in additional guaranteed money

    Wall has already been offered 42.5 per and Kyrie and Kyle Lowry signed their last contracts in 2014. So that boots Holidays 2017 contract off this list already. Makes this kinda of a stupid list doesn't it?

    I don't like the deal but I'm glad it's not as bad as I thought it would be. He's an above average combo guard and hopefully within the next 2 or 3 years he will be back in the middle of the pack in terms of salary for those kinda guards.

    So all the folks that said Demps "outbid himself" with offers of 173 mil or even 144 mil. That talk pretty much dominated this board.

    Can ya'll go jump in a lake now?

    Can we be honest here? This organization has to overpay players to keep them. Why does it matter that we overpaid for Jrue Holiday? Lets say the Pelicans have cap room to offer a Max contract. So what? If the Boston Celtics are having a hard time bringing in a Max player to their championship contending team do you think the Pels are going to do better? You keep your best players. This team isn't going to have any cap room for a long time if they resign Cousins to a Max deal. You live with trying to contend with Jrue, AD, and Cousins with the hopes that young players step up, vetern players fill in the rotation, and maximizing the players you have. GS was built through the draft and low key free agents. Yes Kevin Durant made them a super team but they were a championship team before that. Stop with this overpaying nonsense. The Pels having cap space for a Max player is pointless. Teams are the favored to resign players. Anyways. Look at Michael Conley. Everyone complained he was way overpaid. Dude came back and had a career year leading Memphis to the playoffs in the Western Conference. What you like about this big 3 is that they are young and the prime of their careers. If they resign Cousins to a long term deal then you have 5 years to build something here.

    You can't complain since you defended Gordon stealing money for 4 years.

    right, but Jrue is 2 years younger so when their respective deals are up they'd be the same age and quite frankly if he hits the "unlikely" incentives he will be worth the extra scratch in the loaded west.

    also, defensively Jrue is worlds better, efficiency stats notwithstanding. Teague was a low valued commodity 2 years ago.

    This contract is going to look really good if Jrue can stay healthy. Jrue is an excellent fit for what we are building.

    We've invested picks for Jrue , time and money in Jrue and AD and DC like Jrue that is enough right there to resign him and his contract is not that bad . Let's move on where go we go from here ??

    did Jrue miss time last season due to injury or just to be with his wife during her pregnancy & cancer deal

    I don't remember him being injured... but I missed a lot of games last season due to work

    Most of the time he missed was because of the family situation. Was healthy last year, but play badly regressed after Cousins trade.

    They didn't overpay him. Compared to what other PGs make (or going to make) he's right where he should be.
