    I've seen Jaxson come in and be a game changer many times; given it was usually playing pf when this happened, but still. I'd like to see him retained
    His qualifying offer is $7.75MM; so, we ain't going there. The only way he sticks around is if he played for the league minimum which he probably can get from seven to ten other teams in the league. If Myles Turner leaves Indianapolis, that's where I can see him going on the cheap.

    Jaxson Hayes will definitely go down as a huge what if. He has so many qualities that would make him a great contributor, just lacking the bball IQ and instincts. Which is something that was known when he was drafted. Just a major fail on the player development side, of course having 3 different coaching staffs in his first 3 years is not a great recipe for developing a raw 19 year old prospect.

    Yeah. I love JV but question his fit at times. TBH, I' don't really love the fit of any of the names we could go after either. There just seems to be a major flaw to each fit. Meh.

    Also, there's not a lot of sample size to go on with this but I liked the way we played the Nuggets when we had JV and Zion as a tandem last season and they are the team to beat currently. But we have to save money somewhere.
    Good positive energy.

    But also, yo mama's fat.

    This is an updated Summer League roster for Pelicans: https://clutchpoints.com/nba-summer-...osters-tracker

    New Orleans Pelicans
    Dyson Daniels ? New Orleans Pelicans [Pick No. 8 in 2022 NBA Draft]
    Jordan Hawkins ? UConn [Pick No. 14 in 2023 NBA Draft]
    Kamaka Hepa ? Hawaii
    Tevian Jones ? Southern Utah
    E.J. Liddell ? New Orleans Pelicans Two-Way Contract [Pick No. 41 in 2022 NBA Draft]
    Karlo Matkovic ? Cedevita Olimpija (Slovenia) [Pick No. 52 in 2022 NBA Draft]
    Landers Nolley II ? Cincinnati
    Liam Robbins ? Vanderbilt
    Dereon Seabron ? New Orleans Pelicans Two-Way Contract

    Because rosters of other teams seemed incomplete, with less than 10 players in some cases, I am guessing this will be revised as the games get started next week. A new name on this list is Kamaka Hepa, from the University of Hawaii.

    Locking up Herb means some tax evading moves are coming. We can't afford to pay him his extension without cutting some cost elsewhere.

    JV on the move?

  11. #336


    Yeah, that.

  12. #337
    nice to see some familiar faces still around here

  13. #338


    Makes sense, neither are particularly worth investing in and if we need him, we can probably just pick Willy back up on a minimum when things have died down somewhat.

    They seem to be trying to move Kira. Not sure who would take him into space though.

    it's gotta be kira going. i think they tried moving JV, but it's difficult to do when you need a playable center back too.

    I wouldn't be surprised to see herb's deal come in at slightly less than the max arenas extension. but i wouldn't be that mad at the max i guess even though that's essentially valuing herb at 16 million a year because you lose out on the cheap team option year.

  16. #341
    Hope Herb gets a nice number. His skill set can be very underappreciated by some fans. He deserves starter money.

    Little surprised about Jax. Thought some GM would think they've got the midas touch and would accept him in a trade. Guess not.

    Lakers letting go of Malik Beasley. For now.

    No way Willy comes back after this season. Too many other teams with title chances can give him the same money. Phoenix or Philly.

    The question is, which of those teams want him?

    It's just to see if they can work out a trade. He's not returning as a player to our team.

    Suns will take anyone over 6'9'' with a pulse and close to a vet min salary. EuroMVP on the resume helps.

  24. #349
    Are we going to finally go after Myles Turner?

    So by this time next week, JV, Jax, and Willy could all be gone. The only surviving bigs will be Larry and EJ.

    Makes me really think they would have taken Lively at 14 if he would have been there.
