re: 2020 NBA Free Agency Tracker and Rumors - Don Pel
In other rumors Beal has said he would like to be moved to either the Clippers or Pelicans, if Wall remains in D.C. No link, just word of mouth....

re: Any possible way we can make a move for Steven Adams? - Don Pel
There was no vision for Hill on this roster. We have multiple ball handlers on this team. I think you’re off by referring to Hill as an asset because he’s still a solid NBA player. I think if you were to view him strictly a “resource” or a “means to an end” you would understand the trade...

re: ICYMI: We’re here to beat people’s.... - Don Pel
Good catch. I knew something was off. I just simply forgot to give my mans dap but make no mistake I love the guy. I like what Hill adds to the team but I would also prefer we add some front court depth. Basically I see Hill as a true fringe player for this roster considering the whole situa...

ICYMI: We’re here to beat people’s.... - Don Pel
So In Griff I Trust. The Holiday trade made sense. Has value was at all time high or so it seemed to Milwaukee Bucks at least. Long story short Holiday & Bledsoe are basically the same player separated by two distinct narratives. One is undervalued (not any more I guess) and one has underperforme...

re: Meet SVG and hear from Griff: a virtual event. - Don Pel
What I’m hearing while reading Griff’s comments. “We currently have no reason to trade Jrue Holiday at this point in time because we believe we have the pieces in place to be a consistent winner. At the same time we are aware that Jrue’s value is at an all time high around the league. If this te...

re: SVG Meeting with Pels - Don Pel
I feel the same way as does Van Gundy in reference to Ted Cruz’s fan base. So that doesn’t bother me in the least form. His political views aligning with mine also has absolutely no bearing on whether he brings value to the Pelicans. Which he absolutely does and I hope he is the hire. Stan Van Gu...

re: Shamit: Pelicans are bringing in a new Director of Analytics. - Don Pel
Lue has vowed to take Chauncey Billups on the ride with him wherever he’s hired as Assistant HC... Does anyone have a read on his philosophy and what he may bring to the table? A little off topic I guess. ...

re: Construct a realistic playoff team under the following criteria. - Don Pel
It shouldn’t be that hard to move up in this draft. We have enough capital if that’s the plan. There’s no need to trade one of our core players to move up. Just my thoughts....

re: Zion - BI - Zo Show - Don Pel
[quote]He is a PG who can't finish or make FT's. That is a MASSIVE problem and he's so far back without any real improvement in 3 years.[/quote] I agree that is a MASSIVE problem. If a player can’t make free throws I don’t want him on the floor. That’s a great talking point, I think we’ll see a s...

re: Zion - BI - Zo Show - Don Pel
[quote]First of all, the fact that he switched agents and signed with Klutch is a clear sign that he wants out, which means that he's likely going to be traded. I mean, we could hold on to him to start the season and then trade him right before the deadline, but I feel confident saying that will onl...

re: Zion - BI - Zo Show - Don Pel
[quote]He shot better. that's it. His defense is no where near elite like we were told it would be. It's mediocre. That's the biggest reason why i don't want him. [/quote] From a mythical standpoint his defense wasn’t elite but it’s not as if he’s inept. His size still can’t be taught and his...

re: Zion - BI - Zo Show - Don Pel
One of Griffin first comments about Zion during Summer League was that his conditioning takes a huge hit when he’s not on a strict regiment. Any time away from the facility was a detriment. Call me crazy but I’m not buying Anthony Bennett vibes. Zion has the desire to be great, which if you both...

re: Zion - BI - Zo Show - Don Pel
But why did this team underperform? There’s a human element that often feels neglected. The roster had significant turnover and a huge philosophy change. Ingram and Zo were coming off injuries (per usual during their short careers) last off-season entering a new situation. Zion (what’s un...

re: Zion - BI - Zo Show - Don Pel
Why not? What you have against Zo Limit? The improvements he made last season have been vastly understated. I wasn’t a fan of him in a Lakers uniform but I never denied his potential. We saw a small glimpse of the heights he can reach when he was healthy and felt comfortable in his role. If ...

Zion - BI - Zo Show - Don Pel
Developing a core. Creating a culture. Building a dynasty. A time to remember. The bubble was a disaster. The bubble play also means very little when projecting this team, this roster moving forward. This team is going to take a considerably sized leap next season. It’s no coincidence that w...

re: Scoop B says we want to trade for CP3 - Don Pel
If we were to land Chris Paul we would have to first and foremost do right by Jrue. With that being said the only team in the West I would feel comfortable sending him to is Golden State. CP3 still brings value to the floor but that contract is still ridiculous. I don’t see the market being as B...

Trade them all to LA for Anthony Davis. I mean that’s a no brainer. I kid, but Kira has the potential to be special. Another player born to play basketball would be a nice addition to this squad. I say we draft him and let the chips fall where they may....

re: First mock draft of 2020 | Pels take... - Don Pel
I like the Kira Lewis Jr pick. Think he’s the prototypical 13th pick of the NBA Draft type player. I love attacking guards and it would be nice to see a Pel finish in the lane with their right lol. Nice job!...

re: How does the roster improve with no major trades? - Don Pel
Lonzo may surprise you. He’s set to have a breakout season next year, and I think finishing at the rim will be a huge priority of his. He knows he has to get stronger......
