    I will pass on the guy the Pelicans chose to leave wide open and proceeded to shoot the Blazers season away . Pels need shooters.
    It's that the Hornets unashamedly quit so quickly in Game 4 after fans in New Orleans showed up this season with greater regularity than the team could have ever dreamed, shaming misinformed know-it-alls like me who kept telling you that local residents couldn't possibly invest their time and money into something as trivial as rooting for the local basketball team while still recovering from the devastation of Hurricane Katrina. - Mark Stien ESPN

    Sign and trade boogie + Ajinca for j Randle, zubac and 1st
    Sign Evans and Bradley
    Bring back rondo and Clark
    Find a way to move solo and/or Moore
    Draft a C

    If we keep our current roster we should resign boogie, rondo and Clark. Move Ajinca and try to sign tyreke Evans.

    Why would we sign Evans? He is the opposite of what we need if we want an uptempo team. He prefers to slow the pace and play half court. Pass.

    I mean he would have to commit to the team philosophy. I think his other skills would thrive in this offense if he wants to run other teams out the gym.

    Is this really all some think we can do? Get players we've already had before?

    This is one of those trades where both teams get a raw deal!

    Is there any way to acquire any of the following players

    Khris Middleton
    Justise Winslow
    Dillon brooks
    Joe Harris
    Demarre Carroll

    I wonder if there is a way we can get Rondo, Jrue, AD and Boogie to all go to San Antonio and start trying to recruit Kwahi?? Try to make our own Hamptons 5 (or whatever they called that GS thing)... If they could get him to force a trade and say he only wants to come to NOLA, I'm sure we could put together a package that might entice SA, or even if we have to get a 3rd team involved...

    Well, I'd love to get Middleton, but unless we are able to get him to sign an extension with a pay raise, he would be a rental. He is definitely going to opt out of his contract after 18-19 season.
    Don't think Winslow would help
    I would like Brooks a lot. He's a baller. Watched plenty of PAC 10 games (Bill Walton is awesome color analyst) Brooks was a great college player-couldn't believe how late he went in the draft.
    Joe Harris isn't an upgrade from
    Ian Clark or ETwaun Moore
    Demarre Carroll- would love it, I think he likes his ugly orange & red uni's.

    This is why I tend to lose interest in free agency threads. Just because it works in a game doesn’t mean that it will work in real life. Like Demps always says, it’s hard to acquire players in the NBA.

    But at the same time...if anyone suggested a trade for DeMarcus Cousins centered around Buddy Hield...they'd get similary mocked. Or us parlaying Omer Asik into Mirotic.

    Not every trade is something us fans would consider a move that would happen beforehand.

    If Lebron decides to leave the Cavs, if they lose, how about SH, AA, and EM for Love.

    We didn't parlay Asik into Mirotic. We flipped our 1st into Mirotic who demanded to be traded and attached Asik to it for giving up a 1st. We also did this right after the Cousins injury so the value of our 1st was perceived as higher.

    I'd love Aminu with this team. To say differently is simply silly. That being said, I wouldn't go out of my way to target him either

    he was 11-20, and 5-11 from the arc?

    Same result. Different marketing.

    Yes but two totally different narratives which is the point.

    It isn't the narrative that is different, it's perspective and context.

    But hairs are being split. The actual point is there's I can see reason not to dismiss any given trade idea out of hand because they seem unrealistic, because reality can be unrealistic.

    Trades are so hard to predict and I’ve seen a lot of deals that I’d never have done. As for additional pieces, I’d move hill and Moore along with a first or 2 to upgrade either pg or sf. Kemba and Paul George are the first that come to mind. Of course it all depends if they want to come here.

    But who thought giving a 1st and filler (Asik) for Mirotic was unrealistic? Mirotic was a player that demanded to be traded and Chicago said they'd only trade him for a 1st.

    Heck everyone talked about how at the end of this coming season Asik's contract was valuable due to the non guaranteed money.

    I don't think the Mirotic trade proves unrealistic trades happen at all. It was a very realistic trade given the circumstances. If it was Asik and just a 2nd then I'd think you'd have a point because that would seem unrealistic.

    Yeah, The Bulls were betting on a lottery pick, albeit mid-lottery, but lottery never the less.

    Yep. I think it's very clear that we won the trade because we ended up outperforming expectations and the Bulls only got 22 instead of a lottery pick. But at the time it was a pretty darn even trade given the BULLS wanted to lose more games and get a 1st for Mirotic.

    Who would be your quality free agent SF you'd target? Outside of PG I can't remember how else is out there that is even semi attainable.
