re: Pels trade Aijinca for Wes Johnson - Crewz
It looks like their plan is to take Jrue out early in the 1st and 3rd, allowing Payton to run the point with Moore at 2 and Miller at the 3. Then, bring Jrue back in to be in the backcourt with Clark and have Solo at the 3 and Randle at the 4. So, in theory you have 4 guys who can share the playmaki...

re: Pels trade Aijinca for Wes Johnson - Crewz
I think this team might misidentify and incorrectly groom young players. I predicted that they would ruin Diallo after I saw what they were doing with him in Summer League practices and games in his first season. I now worry about Frank. I think they see what a guy can do and say, "Well yeah, bu...

re: Pels trade Aijinca for Wes Johnson - Crewz
I watched all the games and my take is that Frank could be solid in the rotation but they are using him wrong. I think they are trying to develop him into an on-ball guard who can play next to Jrue. But thats not who Frank is. He is a Bobby Jackson or a Lou Williams type if he hits his ceiling. Can ...

re: Pels trade Aijinca for Wes Johnson - Crewz
So then start a discussion. Type, "I don't agree with that. I'd prefer Frank Jackson get minutes over Hill or Miller. Even if he isn't ready right now, it will pay off long term to get him some minutes now." See how easy that was? THAT is how you start a discussion on the topic and lay out yo...

re: Pels trade Aijinca for Wes Johnson - Crewz
E'twaun knows he is not a three. He has said as much. He wants to play guard but he does whatever the team needs. The second the Pels can move Hill and Wes plus a pick for a real SF, everything falls into place because Moore can drastically improve the bench and the backup guard position...

How many different ways can I lay out the rotation? I told you what it was and it didn't have Frank in it, so.......

re: Pels trade Aijinca for Wes Johnson - Crewz
The Pels staff knows this and was DYING to give the starting SF spot to Solo. Then, they can go Ian, Moore, Miller at the backup 1-3. But Solo was terrible, so they have to start Moore. The hope is that they can land their wing and put Moore at the backup 2. Then, the 9 man rotation will be amaz...

re: Pels trade Aijinca for Wes Johnson - Crewz
E'twaun is starting at the 3 until we get a real one. Currently, Genty is paling Clark as the backup 1 and Miller as the backup 2. The last spot in the rotation is the backup 3. 12-15 mins. Its Hill's spot right now. ...

I don't think he gets that chance until Solo gives them 15+ games of solid garbage. I think they will try to salvage Solo before they give Williams or Wes Johnson or whoever a real shot. ...

re: Pels trade Aijinca for Wes Johnson - Crewz
He will start with 9. The bigs will play all 48 - meaning AD, Randle, Niko; two of them will be on at all times. So, you have 144 minutes for the 1-3. Payton, Clark, Miller, Jrue, Moore are locks. The 6th perimeter player is between Solo, T Williams, and Wes now. Solo will get first crack at those 1...

re: Pels trade Aijinca for Wes Johnson - Crewz
I also feel like a Williams will be gone (or on a two-way) and a guard will be brought in sometime soon. It just makes sense roster wise. Guys to watch - T Frazier, N Young, T. Lawson...

re: Pels trade Aijinca for Wes Johnson - Crewz
I don't see Wes as a player. At best he is an insurance policy if injuries start to ravish the wing. He can play. Ajinca can't. So its a plus, but I would never count on Wes playing a meaningful minute. If he does, someone got hurt and/or the young guys crapped the bed. What he is for us is a sl...

re: Question about Giannis and AD - Crewz
Correct. I am 37 now. I don't worry much about 20-something kids and where they will be or not be. Far more important things. Also, I know that no decision is made now. People try to read into things as if a decision is made. So they go, "Does X mean he is going to do Y or Z?" Well, how can ...

re: 2 more cuts - Crewz
Dell isn't done. He might not make a change this week, but he is looking for a PG or combo guard. Tyus Jones is the dream. Ty Lawson is a possibility. Milos possible. I wouldn't assume the roster is set yet. ...

re: Question about Giannis and AD - Crewz
I don't know if you are on social media much, but the "Giannis isn't staying in Milwaukee" storyline has been much louder than the AD one over the last week or so. There are "unnamed execs and GM's" coming out and saying he is good as gone. This is not unique to New Orleans. It happens everywher...

re: How concerned should we be with the Preseason performance? - Crewz
Tell me how many games AD and Jrue play first. Predicting the future is set up so we can laugh at people when they are wrong and not acknowledge them when they are right. Its a fools game. It all comes down to health, and not just Pelicans health but the health of the teams the Pelicans play...

re: How concerned should we be with the Preseason performance? - Crewz
If AD leaves, I don't care what picks we do or do not have in the future. The franchise is decimated. They would have lost two of the top 10-20 players in NBA history within a decade. There would be no reason to think they could keep anybody of that caliber long term. To me, its all or nothing. ...

re: How concerned should we be with the Preseason performance? - Crewz
Lets say the Pels lose 4-2 in the first round next year. But yes, you tell him that you will have some expirings and you believe you will be able to make a big trade at some point in the next few months. Not sure who, but that is your PROCESS. Thats hope. The FACTS would be that he would see it ...

re: How concerned should we be with the Preseason performance? - Crewz
AD doesn't have his mind up. But he does want to secure a legacy by winning at a high level. If there are obviously better places he can achieve that, it would be well worth it to head to those places. But yes, if he can win big here AND get the money, that would be preferred. Would that be more...

re: How concerned should we be with the Preseason performance? - Crewz
Ok, you can believe that. I GUARANTEE you that if the Pels don't have a better season than they had last year, AD will not sign the extension in July. At the very least. The most would be he doesn't sign it AND demands a trade. Either way, its a terrible situation to be in. If you think that AD ...
