Thread: November 20th - New Orleans Pelicans vs Sacramento Kings - 6-7

    CJ is 32 and can't play a lick a defense. Not good when two starters (some say three) are already deficient (being kind).

    That said, Julius Randall wants to know where all those fans who claimed....

    he doesn't fit the timeline...

    when he was only 24 years old went.

    Move CJ (and his contract) now while he still has value. 3M3 is getting a huge contract at the end of the year.

    Why the Pelicans do it:

    Mark Williams is a 7'0" 21 year old center, averaging 14/10 on 70% from the field, 71% from the line, in 27 minutes (and only 1 turnover per game). He fills a huge need for the Pels, and can contribute now. They stagger him with Jonas. He's cost-controlled until becoming a RFA in 2026 ($3.9m this season).

    Trading CJ for Hayward is a salary dump as Hayward is expiring. Hayward can still contribute coming off the bench and shooting 3's. This frees up a massive amount of cap space the Pelicans can use to resign their players.


    Why the Hornets do it:

    CJ is better than Hayward, can help "build the culture" (assuming they buy into that), and they have him under contract a couple more years (assuming they would want that).

    Two first rounders. The Lakers pick could be fantastic if Davis or LBJ misses a lot of time.

    They can kick the tires on Kira.

    Sorry, but that is terrible.
    2 FRP for Mark Williams and to get under the cap next season?

    Charlotte isn't doing that for one FRP. You solve your center problem and you don't watch your good young players walk for nothing.

    the most complete game in recent memory....

    Not sure MW fits the C they need. He doesn't space the floor at all. It's a quality player in CJ and 2 FRP's for an above average C and a salary dump. I think you can find better towards Feb 2024.
