re: Pelicans unhappy....source - Jon1798
Is there really no world that one of the better starting point guards in the league is an asset that could help us land a better player down the road? In my mind, we are a more appealing team if winning. And in my world, Jrue Holiday and a first round pick is more appealing to other teams than a...

re: Pelicans unhappy....source - Jon1798
I would be curious to see this list if it's something you wrote down. The SG position is certainly thinner than the PG position in my mind. I would have Jrue even further from the middle mark if we said all guards. Not by a ton, but I certainly wouldn't be sliding him further back....

re: Pelicans unhappy....source - Jon1798
Let's just be straight forward with this.... Jrue is about the 13th or so best PG in the league. Somewhere square in that 10-15 range every single season. Do we all agree with that premise? And if we do, are we saying that is a bad thing? Are we saying we should let that walk?...

re: Pelicans unhappy....source - Jon1798
I think it's worth noting that last year he was 11th amongst PG's in ORPM with guys like Gordon and Anderson on the team. But his defensive numbers struggled. Then this year he jumped to third in DRPM surrounded by good defenders but fell to 21st offensively. Not that he couldn't just play well...

re: Pelicans unhappy....source - Jon1798
21st out of 91 qualifying PG's. And 3rd defensively is elite. I think saying "above average" is a little sand bagging. No, he's not Chris Paul, or Steph Curry, Russel Westbrook, John Wall, etc. But those guys will never play on this team. Jrue is a very good player, and I think anyone sayin...

re: Pelicans unhappy....source - Jon1798
Jrue was 21st amongst PG's in ORPM, and 3rd in defensive RPM behind only Chris Paul and Patrick Beverly. That puts him at 13th in overall real plus minus. And considering the depth of the point guard position, that's pretty darn good....

re: Lowry & 76'ers - Jon1798
Knicks are in a tight spot cap wise. They don't have max cap space. And to get there could take relinquishing the bird rights for Jrue's brother. Best chance for them is to trade Carmelo and not take nearly as much money back in the trade. And that's not as easy as it sounds, nor will it leave m...

re: Pels think they are a playoff team with or without Holiday - Jon1798
Jrue Holiday will be the best player to change teams IMO. People will offer him the max because they can get him and that's what it will take. It is what it is, and I understand if the Pels don't want to go there. I just hope they understand the market. ...

re: Pels think they are a playoff team with or without Holiday - Jon1798
It scares me that this team seems to think something less than a max even has a chance to keep Jrue. He's the best PG not named Chris Paul on the market. He's going to get max offers. Now maybe it's all lip service. But you might as well start talking to Mills' agent behind the scenes if you...

re: You do not use first round picks on need - Jon1798
He wasn't on a lot of boards. Hence why he fell to 31. I'm not really sure what you are trying to say. You think it's impossible the Saints weren't with the dozens of other teams not willing to take him? He has off the field concerns, injury concerns, and essentially a failed drug test at his ...

re: You do not use first round picks on need - Jon1798
I agree. They were needs for sure. Just so frustrating to see for months people say we HAVE to take defense and we HAVE to take pass rusher. That's not what a smart team does in the first round. These two guys could be starters for us the next decade....

That's how mistakes are made. You take the best player available within reason. That's what the Saints did. That's smart drafting. I think they got the best CB and OT in the draft....

re: Cris Carter - Team he(Adrian Peterson) went to(Saints) not better than Vikings - Jon1798
Bridgewater may never play again, and we got their running back. Sharieff Floyd also may never play again. They were 8-8. Let's slow down on how great they are. That's a sub .500 team next season....

re: Kiper/McShay dueling mock draft - Jon1798
I'm not saying I want them to do it, but Ross would cost a fraction of the amount Cooks will. And theoretically also have a fraction of the attitude that helped fuel the Cooks exit. That is not apples to apples....
