re: Official 2018 Pelicans Offseason Thread - NOFOX
Was about to post about point forward Solo potential bench units. If Frank can do some things, a Frank-Miller-Solo-Randle-Niko lineup really intrigues me as a rotation sitting Jrue-AD that might not shite the bed....

re: Official 2018 Pelicans Offseason Thread - NOFOX
I understand that and agree that Otto lacks the aggression to be a real 3rd star (hence his projected availabiity) and if AD and (more so) Jrue revert to their more passive nature, then we need a wing that can create shots. I want to believe Jrue matured mentally from the playoff series and will...

re: Most Underrated Need on the Pels right now - NOFOX
[quote]Its ADs team and the only reason he shouldn't be the target to hit the free throws at end of games is if hes hurt or fouled out. [/quote] He should, but a lot of teams stick a quicker, longer wing on AD for inbounds at end of games making it more difficult to get him the ball. It's easier...

re: Was Rondo Really That Good Last Year - NOFOX
[quote]If AD and/or Jrue can't fill that role, then this team would never really go far anyway, so it doesn't matter. The training wheels are off; Time for those guys to be leaders[/quote] Agree. If AD/Jrue didn't mature and learn how to be pros that lead a team this past year, then we have prob...

[quote]AD and Mirotic are both 80% shooters from the line. Either should be fine[/quote] So is Solo historically and likely can get free from his man easier on the inbound, though he doesn't shoot as many as Niko/Ad....

re: Woj: Kawhi Traded to Raptors for DeRozan - NOFOX
[quote]To me, the team this year is better than the team last year by what they have added, since Kawhi basically didn't play and i don't include him as part of the team last year when i say that. [/quote] And that team was an 8th seed and the West got better. So this Spurs team can be more ta...

[quote]If the spurs are healthy, they are going to win 45 games. Thinking they will be a sub .500 team is laughable. [/quote] I don't think that is a given. Lot of turnover for them losing SloMo, Green, and Parker. Pau is 38, Manu will be 41, and the West got tougher including in division. ...

[quote]If the Lakers weren't willing to put Ingram in a trade then you're probably looking at Lonzo/Kuzma which might as well just be Kuzma because Pop ain't putting up with Lavar. Philly was probably trying to build everything around Fultz, no thanks. If Pop wanted to avoid any Melodrama and get th...

re: Woj: Kawhi Traded to Raptors for DeRozan - NOFOX
This is a great trade for the Raptors. They get to make a 1 year run and found the only real way to sell a Derozan salary dump. The pick is protected 1-20. If they really decide Kawhi won't work and are not where they want to be by the deadline, they can start a rebuild by moving Kawhi for a pick...

[quote]Still not that bad for Sacramento. They'd have their front court of the future with Capela, Bagley, and Giles. [/quote] I agree. That's why I put holding the bag in quotes. Although they have a lot of young front court guys now: Bagley, Giles, Skal, WCS. I still think they should sign Ca...
