The part about floor wax?


No silly. Trade the pick.

I learned wax the floor as part of my B.S. in Management at The University of New Orleans.

I know everyone says they would take Noel to pair with Davis, but I have severe reservations about that match up. I don't think it would work.


Why wouldnt it work? Just curious.

Noel may be skinny, but he has shown he can put on weight. He was 216 in April 2012 and was up to 228 at the start of UK's season. He's already bigger than AD. Not sure what he is now but I wouldn't be surprised if he's flirting with 235. Im curious to see what he will weight.

Is he the best offensive option? No. Could he clean up on the offensive glass and on lobs? Sure. Assume we have good offensive players at the 1-4; do we really need a scoring 5? Shit, look at all the defensive oriented centers in the playoffs. There are like 8 of them. Asik, Noah, McGee, Jordan, Perkins, Bogut, Sanders, Chandler.

I'll take McLemore, who everyone on here seems to be down on.


I like McLemore, especially if we want an SG. Better than Oladipo. I dont really want a SG though.

No way Sac gives that much up for Noel or Mclemore


I would like to pair Cousins and Davis together.

I have to think Sacramento won't keep Cousins in free agency after everything that has went down.

The Kings could take a known #1 pick and a relatively cheap solid center then could continue a rebuild with their own 1st round pick.

If I were the Hornets I would use the #1 pick as core to a trade for Cousins. If the Hornets ended up still having a big three of Davis, Cousins, and Gordon it would be a damn good start.

But you don't, nor won't because we're setting ourselves up to max out two skinny front court players a year apart in hopes that one of them can guard top NBA centers....

I would trade that pick straight up for Cousins if we could resign him.

The need to be winningy enough at the point at which he signs so that he's willing to take the money conferred by the longer deal.


If AD progresses as we all hope he'll be eligible for the Rose extension which he'll happily sign even if the Pelicans become the Kings. That's just too much guaranteed money to walk away from. I think the clocks that are ticking are Benson's age and the fan's patience.

Benson and Co. want dramatic improvement this next season. And while I realize the new CBA has changed things a bit, I don't think Benson will shy away for a little bit of luxury tax.

And it's not unreasonable seeing as it is the kings.


The Kings are getting new owners and I'd imagine they'd be looking to clean house. I could see the new owners wanting to move Cousins for Noel, but no way would they hamstring a new GM by trading away an unprotected 2014 pick.

re: Hornets would trade out of #1 spot


There's the max deal you can get for being a young vet (Gordon, 25% of cap (a little different for him and Love, actually)) that can be raised to one you can get as an older vet (Paul, 30% of max).

More money, same years.

There is also this designated player, which is what Westbrook signed without having the 30% accelerator. This allows for 5 years beyond the rookie contract years instead of just 4. This is the path the Pelicans should take with Davis.

One reason is that a team can only designate a single player at a time and can only one other designated player that they received in trade. Coon's site does not read that a team can have a total of 2 they received in trade if they do not designate one themselves. This designation, then, decreases the number of teams he can be traded to while he has time left on his deal. I think that is a good thing. A team that is gunning for him will prepare, but every edge in keeping him counts.

re: Hornets would trade out of #1 spot


Isnt the Rose rule (more money for ASG starts, etc) different from the regular 5 year max?

If not, why was Griffin able to get 5/95 and Westbrook 5/80?

Interesting. Was wondering how LAC could have Paul and Griffin both on a 5 year max

The designation applies only to rookie extensions.
