| Pelicans Talk|| re: Greivis Vasquez Appreciation Thread - morsatun on 7/4/13 at 6:33 pm|
I will miss them both, but I really think they have a bright future in their respective teams. We always said that Vasquez could be either a starting point guard in a mediocre team, or a good 6 men in a play off team. Economically, I think this will be good for his carrier. If Sacramento uses the re...

What team? this question does not make any sense until we now how the team will look next season. We have already said many times here that if we can win with Vasquez or not depends on who else is in the team when that ha...

It will be fine, what we do with Vasquez (even though I started this Thread) will not have that big an impact in our season. We just have to get 2 and a half good improvements and we will be fine...

[quote]Drafting Burke does not mean you need to move Gravy[/quote]
I agree that we would not NEED to move Vasquez, but even though having 4 guards is ideal, it may be that we have other needs in the team that could be worth addressing by sacrificing one of the 4 guards. Haven said that, I am conv...

| Pelicans Talk|| How to maximize Vasquez’s trade value. - morsatun on 6/20/13 at 7:57 pm|
If the management team is leaning towards drafting Burke, and eventually trading Vasquez to maximize the return, when would be the best time to do it? I know my point is not going to be very popular among some fans, but here it is anyway.
If we are trying to get the best possible value for Vasque...
| Pelicans Talk|| re: If we pick Burke…? - morsatun on 6/17/13 at 10:05 pm|
This was not intended to be a thread on picking Burke or not, that is why I wrote IF we pick him. The question was who would be starting at PG who would be backup, and when...
| Pelicans Talk|| re: If we pick Burke…? - morsatun on 6/17/13 at 7:34 pm|
If you are right and he starts from day one, do you think Vasquez will be cool being his backup? It is very different being the backup of a rookie, than being the backup PG of an elite player. ...
| Pelicans Talk|| If we pick Burke…? - morsatun on 6/17/13 at 6:50 pm|
It is starting to look like Burke is the pick. If that is the case, what would be the point guard situation next year? A few questions come to mind:
1 is Burke ready to start in the NBA straight away?
If the answer is yes, then do we keep Vasquez as backup or trade Vasquez and trust Robert...

[quote]I'm not defensive, and I'm sorry if I'm conveying any harsh sounding emotion in my comments. I'm honestly just sharing my opinion. And its one I feel quite strongly about because if the position is not upgraded, I think that will be a huge roadblock to our rebuild
| Pelicans Talk|| re: Can Vasquez improve enough? - morsatun on 5/26/13 at 8:52 pm|
[quote]No. He can't. For the reasons I just said. He's a good backup PG in the league. And that's his ceiling. For gods sake, that's what he was drafted to be. 28th overall I believe. Drafted to be a good backup player if that. He has lived up to that expectation, but he will not move past it
| Pelicans Talk|| re: Can Vasquez improve enough? - morsatun on 5/26/13 at 8:34 pm|
OK, this is going too much into Vasquez been able to become a better athlete or not. I just want to know, if you think that a PG (whoever it is) with Vasquez's defensive limitations, and posting the stats I posted (15 PPG, 9.5 APG, 48% FG%, 38% 3p% 3 TO pg, 13 shots PG and 0.5 hero per game, could b...

I think I may have chosen the wrong title for my post. I am not asking if people think Vasquez can improve or not. I am asking if the improvement I posted (hypothetical) would be enough to offset his defensive liability...
| Pelicans Talk|| Can Vasquez improve enough? - morsatun on 5/26/13 at 7:32 pm|
In my last post there was a bit of a discussion on weather Vasquez has reach his ceiling or not. IMO he can improve in some aspects, and not in others.
If Vasquez was to be our starting PG next season and his numbers were to be:
15 PPG up from 13.9
9.5 APG up form 9.0
3 TOPG down from ...

We all seem to agree, that both Lopez and Vasquez in their respective positions showed good progress, but also limitations. Although not ideal in most people minds, it is certainly a possibility that either one of them or both would be our starting players next season (note I am not saying that is i...
