re: Pels v. Grizz | Cash Money Records Edition - TigerinATL
They haven’t had the best results each time but the effort on both ends of the court has been much better after the time out. Lead is back to 11 after having it cut to 1....

re: Pels v. Grizz | Cash Money Records Edition - TigerinATL
One thing Gentry has done recently that might be helping the defense some is he put Jrue as the first guard sub instead of Rondo. This gives you more Rondo/AD, more Jrue/Boogie and less defense destroying Rondo/Boogie. ...

Good start, but they looked good in the first half against Atlanta too. ...

re: Charlotte making Kemba available - TigerinATL
The Pels aren’t trading Boogie and even if they were their roster is nothing but bad contracts. I doubt they take any back unless they are shorter like the 3 way with Denver. They took Asik Ajinca and Faried but dumped the longer bad deals of Batum and MKG. ...

re: Charlotte making Kemba available - TigerinATL
[quote]Denver wouldn’t even talk Murray in a potential Kyrie deal, [/quote] I don't buy that for a second. I think it's a lot more likely that they knew Boston would outbid them the whole time and including Murray in the talks would only have negative consequences. He would know you tried to tr...

re: Charlotte making Kemba available - TigerinATL
They are the 9 seed as of today. Kemba probably makes them a playoff lock. It all depends on what they think of Batum. You know Demps would assume the best case scenario for him. ...

re: Charlotte making Kemba available - TigerinATL
That is an interesting trade. I think Denver is the one that says no because Batum's contract looks so bad, but if they think he's got more in the tank that he's been showing, it works for everyone like you said. NOLA - Jamal Murray, MKG DEN - Kemba, Batum CHA - Faried, Chandler, Asik, Ajinca...

re: AD & Boogie have BOTH been announced as starters for the All-Star Game! - TigerinATL
This thread is supposed to be about AD/DC being All Star starters, not you two's personal beef which is much more lame than it is entertaining. Agree to disagree and move on for all of our sakes. And for the record swamp water would probably be an improvement over what's flowing through the pipes ...

re: Charlotte making Kemba available - TigerinATL
Yeah, that says even more the player we get back for our pick needs to be a guard. They really need to make Dinwiddie happen. Maybe Kemba will present an opportunity for that. ...

[quote] The league is pretty loaded at PG, so use the MLE on a PG[/quote] The flaw to this logic is this is a terrible PG FA class coming up. If Lin opts out he might be the top PG. Look at it, it's really bad http://en.hispanosnba.com/transactions/nba-free-agents [quote]the Early Bird excep...

[quote]“The biggest question was, was it going to work? I think we just proved that it is and it can work,” said Davis, the NBA’s fourth-leading scorer at 26.7 points per game. “But it’s a testament to our hard work.

[quote] fill out the roster with maybe 13 players[/quote] The Pels have had a rotating cast of at least 4 guys on the injured list the entire year. Technically they're getting by with 11. Although that lack of depth is certainly part of the problem they have with consistency....

re: Charlotte making Kemba available - TigerinATL
I missed them and Philly has $9 million Trevor Booker and $11 million Amir Johnson. Monroe in Phoenix is expiring but I doubt Phoenix wants to take on salary without charging a premium, same with the Lakers and Brook Lopez. [quote]but then it comes back to us where we just can't afford to swap s...

re: Charlotte making Kemba available - TigerinATL
[quote]it still doesn't satisfy what Charlotte is wanting to do in getting rid of their larger long term contracts. [/quote] They aren't getting anyone to take Batum and probably not MKG, definitely not the centers. Even the Denver trade I came up with that included Marvin Williams wasn't an exp...

re: Charlotte making Kemba available - TigerinATL
Or maybe he's just playing in a small market on a losing team. He's averaging 15.5/12.4/1.4 with an 18.4 PER and improves the team's DRtg by 4 points when he's on the floor. I don't know if it's just stat padding on a bad team, but it doesn't seem like he fell off a cliff either....

re: Charlotte making Kemba available - TigerinATL
I came up with a 4 team trade on the first page, so yes it can be done, but looking at the future cap it shouldn't be done. You'll basically be setting yourself up to have to dump 1 of Boogie/Jrue/Kemba in another year or 2. Unfortunately you probably won't be doing that on your terms in a manner ...

[quote]I like this. Make the playoffs and starting in the all star game gives us a better shot at retaining Cousins. The Sacramento reputation is already wearing off. [/quote] It should be a point in the Pel's favor, he was surprised to be named a starter. [quote]Will Guillory @WillGuillory ...

[quote]You could do a Carroll/Asik/Diallo/Pels 1st to Charlotte, Kemba/Ajinca/MCW to Brooklyn, Marvin/Dinwiddie to Pels. [/quote] Do Lin for Kemba instead, most expect him to opt out of his player option. NOLA - Dinwiddie BKN - Kemba, Ajinca CHA - Lin, Diallo(or Jackson since Duke), 1st(Pel...
