The Hornets are on the lookout for clubs that fall far short of expectations before the February trade deadline. The logic is that some of those bad or mediocre teams will be looking to dump good players with big contracts for expiring deals.

When that occurs, the Hornets hope Stojakovic's contract can help them make a splash. New Orleans is looking to trade his deal, which pays him $15.3 million this year, for a borderline All-Star type who complements Chris Paul.

The Hornets have already contacted Philadelphia about Andre Iguodala. But the Sixers, who aren't yet sure they're willing to move Iguodala, rebuffed them fairly quickly. Philadelphia's getting lots of calls about Iguodala and will have plenty of options if it decides to trade him.

New Orleans might be a viable one, with the Hornets capable of throwing in a young talent like Marcus Thornton or Marco Belinelli alongside Stojakovic.

Iguodala would seem to be a great fit alongside Paul, as long as the Hornets were able to keep some outside shooters (i.e. Belinelli).

three way deal:

CHI receives - Melo
NO receives - Deng and Bulls 2nd rounder
DEN receives - Peja, Taj, JJ, Bulls 2011 1st rounder

That's who the Hornets should have gone after this offseason when they had Collison as trade bait.

nice to see. No way the Hornets can afford to play a 2nd/3rd option the money that Iguadala makes, but they are willing to sacrafice the big cash to keep Paul happy, and the team sucessful.

I hope the Jazz are in the market to make aggresive move like that as well with AK's expiring

Andre Iguana would be Shane Mary N. on ROIDS next to Christopher Paul. Can you imagine all the dunks, the windmills, the spins, the twists, the backflips, the cartwheels, the rollie pollies that would take place with A.I. and C3PO on the floor together at least?

As soon as Dell Demps and Monty Williams were hired, they were after Andre Iguodala hardcore.

This was before the Trevor Ariza trade, but during the Chris Paul fiasco. Demps knew he had to trade for a prime player to put along side Paul in order to keep him in NOLA. We did inquire about Iguodala and also Carmelo Anthony.

I just really really really hope this trade goes down. This would be great for us.

But for everyone to hear me out on this, I need to tell you that as a die-hard Hornets fan, I'd be SHOCKED if Marco Bellineli is the one traded. I think the guy you see shipped to Philadelphia is Marcus Thornton. Bellineli has been playing superb lately, and is great for the new defensive scheme that Williams has installed for the Hornets.

Although I would like to see Marco Bellineli traded because I think Thornton just adds so much athleticism to the team, coach Monty Williams has not played Thornton at all lately, so he'll be the one traded. If he's not I'll be surprised.

But either way, if we get Iguodala then I'll be intrigued to see the new starting 5. Monty Williams spoke about playing Ariza at the 2 spot so something like this:

PG- Chris Paul
SG- Trevor Ariza
SF- Andre Iguodala
PF- David West
C- Emeka Okafor

Boom....

Why would NO want Deng when they are trying to get Iggy? Seems irrational to give up Peja and his expiring to take on a huge contract in Deng.

So the Sixers are going to trade the number 2 over all pick in Evan Turner AND Iggy to get back perennial head ache JR Smith and the bloated contract that is Devin Harris to stifle the development of Jrue Holliday at the PG? Makes a whole lot of sense.

They already shot this down here in Philly... It was said the sixers will not trade for an expiring as the main part because even if they clear 16 mill it wont help them get a big name free agent next year because of how far they are over the cap.... They went on to say they are waiting and want to be part of a 3 team deal with denver for young talent.

I'm assuming you're a 76ers fan, or at the very least you'll know more about the team than I, but tell me something, being hypothetical:

If the trade went down, and you acquired Marcus Thornton, what role would he play with the 76ers?

Pretty decent, and considering cp3 will be leading that team, you can expect some over-expectations.

Deng can be had for much cheaper and actually has a jumpshot! The only reason the bulls would trade Deng is to get Melo, otherwise we don't mind his 19 and 4 every night.

Before the season Monty Williams talked about playing Trevor Ariza at the SG spot some, so I'm guessing if the trade went down then you would see Ariza at the 2 and Iguodala at the 3.

You must be a Nets fan. Get outta here! This only works in the favor of the Nets, and why would the Hornets trade Okafor at this point? He's too valuable in their strong start! But as a Hornets fan, I would like us to have Iggy but not on the expense of losing one of our cores in CP3, DWest, Mek, and Ariza, hope we could also keep Bellineli (younger version of peja)

Heard of Marcus Thornton? Averaged 14.5 ppg in 25 minutes last year and avg 20 when he moved into the starting lineup. We also have Marco, Ariza, Picks as well.

Ok, my good friend Evan Turner the number 2 pick is a backup SG, Iggy is taking his place atm, once Evan gets minutes he will became a much better player then off the bench. Philly get a huge expiring contract and they have a shot at a decent player in the FA, making them a better team. Plus most likely will be a lottery pick (no offense to any Philly fans :)) so they will also get a top 5-6 pick.

Case Closed :)

No they wont be able to get a decent free agent... Even if we get the expiring and 15 mill comes off the books from the iggy trade we would get nothing... We are way over the cap that trading for an expiring would be pointless... The only time we will be able to go for a top free agent is when brand comes off the books. This trade will not happen... We need young players with high potential and that is why the sixers balked at this trade and quickly.

Side note... Turner has looked really really good as a starter... I wish he would start shooting first and pass 2nd but right now his mentality has been to spread the wealth when he gets the ball.

faze38
11-11-2010, 09:44 AM
Well it seems like it would be a good move for Philly right now because Even Turner is proving that he plays better with out Iggy around but I really don't think u guys are offering the best offer! So I doubt he will go to NO! I also hope they don't make the trade because a disgruntled CP3 might just end up in NY! See I think for the trade to work tho it would cost the Hornets Ariza!

Yeah u are right their but young will most likely get resigned for 6-8 mil eating up that cap space unless they can get someone to replace him at a much cheaper price! Which if the Knicks wanted to get involved would have in AR4 but they would have to also involve Denver and bring Melo to NY and send Iggy to Denver! Which would make me 100% happy because it would throw a kink in NO's plans sorry man but right now we are tryin to take yours and Denvers best player!

Yeah dude. I mean we've been dying to trade Peja Stojakovic for about 2 years now. I knew it would happen in the last year of his deal but it's taken too long!

I just hope this happens.... maybe, maybe not.

New Orleans pursuing Iggy is a bad idea. NO should shop their expirings (mainly Peja) around the trade deadline for more size up front. Iggy is better than Ariza, but for the amount of money on their contracts, I'd much rather have Ariza.

Who would Iggy start over? Ariza???

That's a damn good question you ask. I'm speculating the same thing.

Here's what I think, just by reading a lot of Hornets stuff and being a religious fan/homer of the team, I'm saying Ariza goes to shooting guard.

Monty Williams even talked about playing Trevor Ariza at SG. Here's proof to an article. I'll post the article if you don't believe me but:

"Williams said the starting shooting guard spot could be toss up between second-year player Marcus Thornton and Belinelli. Ariza also could start at the spot and rookie Quincy Poindexter will be vying for minutes there, too."

However, I think the spot would change based of matchups. If Ariza matches up better with the SF that night then start him there.

I think you'll see this (if it were to happen):

PG- Chris Paul - Jerryd Bayless/Willie Green
SG- Trevor Ariza - Marco Bellineli
SF- Andre Iguodala - Quincy Pondexter
PF- David West - Jason Smith
C- Emeka Okafor - Pops Mensa-Bonsu

^ I don't list Marcus Thornton because I believe he'll be the one that's traded along with Peja Stojakovic.

^ We already have size in DJ Mbenga, Pops Mensa-Bonsu & Jason Smith. This is the first time we've ever had three guys close to or at 7 feet on the roster at one time.

Think about what we had before? Guys like Sean Marks, Melvin Ely, and Hilton Armstrong were our bigs.... Turrible.

11-11-2010, 05:39 PM
If I was Hornets I wouldn't be too quick on trading away Marcus Thorton, I like that kid a lot. BUt Peja + Belleneli is a good deal for both teams for Iggy. CP/Iggy/Ariza/West/Okafor is a real good line-up, with a young stud in THorton as the 6th man.

To remind everyone, when CP went down last year, Thorton & Collison BOTH averaged 20ppg as starters.

Sorry to say but i highly doubt CP is going to NY his happy in NO and if we were to bring in another player (Iggy or Melo) we have a shot at the championship, there were other players mentioned too like GWallace, SJackson, Kevin Martin which idk bout martin but 1 of the other 2 would really help too.

11-12-2010, 02:44 AM
how do you know? comments without reasoning .... might as well not say anything at all.

as far as everyone is concerned. Ariza is more of spot up shooter and Iggy is a true slasher.

looks really good on paper.

Because Iguodala is a natural SF. Ariza is a natural SF. Are those good reasons? Either one could play SG in certain lineups, and could defend SGs, but on offense there would be no outside shooting threat. Both are really inconsistent shooters. Both are better suited playing with a SG or SF who could shoot well.

ya and he can even run the offense for a bit when CP3 is on the bench and they have bayless (who isnt good at running the offense) on the floor

11-12-2010, 04:49 AM
idk about this anymore. I was thinking about it and I think I'd rather have Kevin Martin instead of Iggy. Makes more sense for our offense. Iggy is basically a better Ariza. We need shooters and Martins 40% from the 3pt mark looks pretty good right about now.

Nevermind....i just saw that Martin hasnt played in more than 65 games since 06' while Iggy has only missed 4 games his entire career before this year. Damn...any other shooter/scorer available?

Iggy used to be nice, but I'm not really feeling him lately. 13 ppg is unacceptable. At this stage he hasn't expanded his game and he'll be the same guy from here on out. He had top 10 NBA player skills but if he hadn't figured it out yet, then he probably won't....

Tonights loss to Dallas showed why NO needs another playmaker on this team.

Oh man.... So true with that statement. If we (Hornets) don't do anything soon your statement will truly exemplify our season.

Tonight just sucked... Jason Terry completely exploited Willie Green. I'm not sure why Monty Williams didn't have Marco Bellineli in the game to end the 4th quarter but maybe Green matched up better guarding Terry, I don't know...

We left so many Maverick players wide open tonight for open shots. Dallas didn't have to make any wise shot selections because down the stretch we gave them the easy opportunities. Towards the end of the game they were keeping a close eye on Paul, so he didn't really get a shot but Peja Stojakovic actually put up some quality minutes and I think had around 17 points.

I'm hoping Coach Williams is playing Peja as like an "audition" for the 76ers or another team to prove that he can still play. One thing that shocked me is that Marcus Thornton was completely inactive. I can tell you he's not injured either, I guess Monty doesn't think he brings much to the team but damn, you have got to put someone quick and athletic in that situation with the Mavs.

I will say this, I've been very impressed with Emeka Okafor so far. He is playing 'lights out' basketball right now. And David West has been decent but the repetitive trend that will always plague West's career IMO is that he's always up & down in his game. One night he looks like an All-Star but other nights he's M.I.A. I'll never figure it out... :eyebrow:

But hopefully Dell Demps is on the phone with Philadelphia to get Andre Iguodala. Trevor Ariza missed two wide-open 3 point attempts tonight to tie the game at the end of regulation and I'm not saying he's the problem but he's not go-to-guy like Paul could use with AI.

I just hope we trade for him....:pray:

That's interesting. Someone in the Bulls forum wanted us to trade for him. I actually was against it but to be honest, I haven't really seen him play enough to make a valid assessment. Can you tell me what you think of his game and basketball IQ? How's his defense? Does he always compete? Just any pros and cons would be appreciated.

His defense is whats keeping him on the Bench. Monty is a very defensive oriented coach. He'll give you all the pointd you need but thats about it. Not much of a rebounder. If you just need a guy who can score then hes your guy

Calm down saintdrew. I didn't get to watch the game because I had to work but from what I heard. The Hornets blew a lead and didn't make they free throws. Even with another playmaker you just can't do that. Even though Ariza miss them 3's, I don't think Andre would have even made them. He's not that much better when it comes to making 3's.

Ah...yeah, I knew he could put up some points and shoot the ball but I didn't see enough of his defense. Definitely not a Thibs player then. Him and Monty are all about defense.
