re: Zach Lowe: Biggest winners and losers of NBA free agency - corndeaux
[quote]Dell's plan made sense[/quote] The idea in general has merit. Not sure about the execution of Gordon/Evans/Anderson Pels For example, I don't know how Holiday, Gordon, and Evans all generate great trade value playing together. In that system at that deliberate pace with the way those gu...

re: Zach Lowe: Biggest winners and losers of NBA free agency - corndeaux
Yeah. I thought the Asik trade was a great move....the re-signing :( But the self-inflicted circumstances to trade for him is more where I'm coming from. And I get the Boogie era was something they had to pursue and then end. But if some of the rumors about Jahlil Okafor or Dwight were true, yik...

re: Zach Lowe: Biggest winners and losers of NBA free agency - corndeaux
I understand they have the ability to clear space to make Randle a stronger offer. Put all of that aside. Again, what's the plan? What is the framework they are working from to build a team? He walks, he stays, whatever. There must be an idea of what needs to be around Davis. They can survive p...

re: Zach Lowe: Biggest winners and losers of NBA free agency - corndeaux
That's a quite generous read of what they have done with Davis. It is worthwhile to point out that you can have roster stability and still have "churn" given how you use that roster. Yes, injuries didn't help. But the bigger issue, to me, was that they miscalculated on Davis's evolution and ...

You're stuck on the rookie thing, which, again, isn't the point. If you want me to answer your question, you probably should give me the space to do so...

re: Zach Lowe: Biggest winners and losers of NBA free agency - corndeaux
Right. I agree. But that doesn't change the fact that it was a different plan last off-season. And the one before that. And the one before that. What if they can't find a Randle or Payton type next summer? Where do they go? Year to year thinking is trouble Not sure why it's a point of cont...

re: Zach Lowe: Biggest winners and losers of NBA free agency - corndeaux
[quote]In this day and age EVERYBODY can walk. And does[/quote] duh. the stylistic churn is the issue. what's the plan for the Pels when guys do walk- how are you replacing them? are you "doing it big" again? going small? slowing down the pace, switching defense, etc etc etc. yes, t...

re: Zach Lowe: Biggest winners and losers of NBA free agency - corndeaux
[quote]Why does it matter HOW the team got young guys? [/quote] I get the homegrown player comment is easy to hone in on. But I don't think that's the real issue for Lowe. Rather i think the finer point hes going after is the constant roster/stylistic churn we have seen. [quote]There just has...

re: Would you trade E'Twaun Moore for Lonzo Ball? - corndeaux
I like Moore. I'm not in any hurry to move him. I just would do Lonzo for him straight up. I like Lonzo's game, but I get the worries about shooting. Defensively, Lonzo is still light (listed at 190...I don't buy that), but I think he can guard 3s...

re: Would you trade E'Twaun Moore for Lonzo Ball? - corndeaux
The Marcus Smart effect. Same thing with Mirotic. Moore could even see a healthy drop in % and still be a spacer if he ups his 3PA. Instinct to close out when a guy is willing to launch at any point is tough for defenses to overcome. When they know Rondo (for example) is unlikely to shoot, they ...

[quote]Moore hit 128 3’s on less shots per game what does that tell you?[/quote] It tells Moore played 1000 more minutes than Korver and still hit 30 less 3s. It tells me that Moore needs to shoot 3s more often [quote]korver is old and only scored 9 a game last season. He isnt even a starter a...

[quote]Moore scored 12 per game and shot 42 % from 3, Korver scored 9 pts per game and shot 43% from 3, and Reddick scored 17 a game and shot 42% from 3[/quote] yo- ppg dont really mean much here at all. 3PA matter. Korver and Redick take 12 and 10.5 3PA per 100 possessions. Moore takes only 6. i...

[quote]Frank Jackson/Ian Clark/Darius Miller can help fill Moore's role.[/quote] uh....no one has any clue what Jackson can do and Clark/Miller are decidedly not better than Moore. though that says (sorry) more about them than it does about Moore. easy to shite on, but being a good, dependable NBA...

re: AD preferred locker room and pace w/out Boogie - corndeaux
Good to start a thread on it. In all of this, the best news for the Pels is that Davis seems ready to embrace his destiny as a 5. Shifting more of his time there lifts the ceiling of the team considerably...

re: National media perception vs. reality - corndeaux
It's about eyeballs and clicks. Find some outlets/writers you trust and believe are doing good work, even if they are national media. Read them, take them seriously (even if they put down your team), but not blindly. Ignore the rest. You'll be much happier without the noise and smarter too...

[quote]In Major League Baseball, you have a long time with your young stars before they can reach free agency [/quote] Not saying you're wrong on the general sentiment, but this part is off. NBA teams basically control 1st round players for about 7-8 years. Cousins signed 2 contracts with the...

re: 2019 free agency—need to make a splash - corndeaux
[quote]the Pelicans get left holding their dicks in their hand[/quote] most likely. stripping it down to chase free agents in NO is a massive risk, especially when Davis will be in an opt out year. the cap will be jumping up for everyone, if the projections hold. more to the point; if you'v...
