re: Pels granted permission to talk to Redden about GM job - DeionDeion
[quote]Jon Krawczynski @JonKrawczynski Wolves have a strong list of candidates for the position, including Chauncey Billups, Trajan Langdon, Calvin Booth and Gersson Rosas. They’ll move forward with that group[/quote] Also no Redden in that group. Another good sign if you’re all in on Redden...

re: With the 7th pick who does the Pels go with? - DeionDeion
Cam Reddish? no thank you. Only way I'd draft him, is if he's still around at 20 and we have the Boston pick...

re: What do you think Griffin's "outrageous" demands were? - DeionDeion
I would hope there would be a complete revamp of game day operations. They’ve needed to do that for a long time But we didn’t get crazed saints fans, champion square, etc until the Saints became a consistent contender along with an ambassador like Brees I think the Pels need to start winning a...

re: Pelicans will introduce new EVP David Griffin on Wednesday @12:45 CT - DeionDeion
Griffin has turned down head executive gigs because he 'didn't find his owner.' I assume the preqs for Griff was all that we've heard from analytics, scouting, etc but also full autonomy to do what he wants Gayle coming in and saying "you cannot fire Al" doesn't sound like autonomy. Even if Griff...

re: David Griffin on Woj Pod - DeionDeion
this is why I'm excited about Griffin. seems like he's not making any rash or short-sighted moves. I think what helps him in that regard is that he's not trying to make a name for himself and make a big splash just to sell tickets. that's something I've worried about for a while but esp when you ...

re: Pelicans will introduce new EVP David Griffin on Wednesday @12:45 CT - DeionDeion
"One of the biggest factors to me in this was Head Coach Alvin Gentry" "I want to create a family environment" "a player who represents who we want to be in Jrue Holiday" "you are either all the way in or all the way out. there's no in-between" "let's be very clear, Mrs. Benson is 100% c...

re: The ACTUAL Timeline of an AD trade - DeionDeion
this is really the line Griffin will have to tightrope if AD is open to staying next season. will it be a strain on the franchise internally? Gentry did say this has been the most toxic situation in his 31 years in basketball and you can tell so many people were relieved when the season ended....

re: Pels probably hiring Redden as GM per Athletic - DeionDeion
I guess my biggest question is what is Griffin's philosophy on filling out this FO? does he want 'yes men'? does he wants people with different views? does he just want to find the most intelligent people for the job? does he just want to hire the people he's familiar with? I assume it's a...

re: The ACTUAL Timeline of an AD trade - DeionDeion
I think we first need to answer what we want in a three-team trade. I assume you want another good young player if you mentioned Beal For me, I'd love to send Jaylen Brown out and take on a larger contract to start accumulating assets. Like somehow send Hayward to Charlotte and take Batum on for ...

re: The ACTUAL Timeline of an AD trade - DeionDeion
if every post has a non-basketball theme or results in derailing a thread, it ruins conversation for everyone. I don't mind people being called out, but eventually let it go & move on. we are all adults here and can make our own minds up about what we think about Crewz or any other poster. seconding...

re: Griffin Expectations? - DeionDeion
I expect Griffin to bring respect to the organization. And not one whose future depends on one player. Meaning developing players, expanding analytics, etc. I guess I want it to be similar to the Spurs in that regard. But also I want the Pels to be similar to the Saints. One with incredible continui...

definite bad luck, but we made some awful decisions too. Matching Eric Gordon, not resigning Robin Lopez, signing Tyreke (even though I was ecstatic at the time), trading for Asik, resigning Asik ...

re: The ACTUAL Timeline of an AD trade - DeionDeion
and this reasoning is why when it comes to the AD trade, I am in full 'asset-accumulation' mode. we need to build a winning culture here that goes beyond one player. the organization revolved around AD, around CP3 before that, and Baron Davis (to a lesser extent) when the franchise moved to New O...

re: The ACTUAL Timeline of an AD trade - DeionDeion
good grief can we get an admin in here to get this guy out of here? all Ive seen is him trying to get off by calling people out and derailing discussion I'm convinced that MM could literally say the simplest thing and people would still lose their damn minds. ...
