Gordon out with a knee contusion and no contract extension, Kaman being shelved so that young guys can get more playing time (and being shopped around), Aminu has had little to no impact for the Hornets.

So essentially, it was CP3 for a future 1st rd pick. :facepalm:

There's no deal in place, I'm reliably told, but Hornets have effectively shelved Chris Kaman until they can find trade home for him

Kaman not with team tonight w/Hornets playing host to Orlando. Coach Monty Williams tells reporters Kaman shelved so youngsters can get PT

But Stern did get a star player on a big market team. The Lakers are already the Lakers, Stern wanted to get the Clippers going too.

Please explain to me how it is way better. Aminu hasn't done anything and Gordon is going to have knee problems for basically the rest of his career. He had major knee issues last year as well when he was with the Clippers. Kaman is just an expiring. And if Minnesota somehow makes the #8 seed this yr, that Minnesota pick will go to waste essentially. Long-term, Hornets get crap in return for talent.

Isn't it funny that they'll esentially get back what the Cavs got back for Lebron or the Raptors for Bosh. In fact in the Raptor deal, they also got a late first round pick and a SF project (traded the other first rounder to Chicago for James Johnson).

David Stern doesn't know what the hell he's doing lol

1 Cap Space 12 mill expiring from Kaman should net theme good potential or picks

2 Aminu just needs time to learn the system

3 Eric Gordon is better then anything u where offering that's just a damm fact

4 they got a draft pick in a very deep draft

Should be interesting to see if Kaman ends up going anywhere. If for no other than reason than the fact that the Hornets should have no qualms in keeping him if they can't get a deal that makes sense for them when considering he's in the last year of his contract.

This is like a Chris Paul lob! Where do I start disecting this load? Oh yea the easiest and most fabricated part. Gordon missed a total of ZERO games last year with knee problems. He missed over 20 games with 2 seperate wrist injuires. To say he's injury prone is true, but please explain to me how he had "major knee problems" last year? :laugh2:

Why would the owners of the rest of the teams who are paying the Hornets palyers contracts make a trade that does not help them one bit in the present or future and adds a butt load of salary? Atleast with the Clipper deal they shed salary, picked up 2 very good young players and what looked like a sure top 5 pick. The real reason the Laker trade was vetoed is because there was no reason for New Orleans with no owner to pick up the salaries of Martin and Scola. You have basically written off Gordon as a bust because of 1 injury yet Martin has had an even harder time staying healthy and is 5 years older. :facepalm:

Like someone else said, they can match for Gordon, have an extra pick that still may end up in the lottery, Aminu, and $12 million coming off the books. Explain to me how that is Paul for a future 1st?

The only problem I see for New Orleans is that Eric Gordon wants the same contract that Kevin Love or Russell Westbrook got.

He wanted 4/$60 Million and David Stern(serving as Hornets owner) wouldn't commit to that, which is why hes going to be a Free Agent.

What happens for example when Eric Gordon hits Free Agency and gets that type of "pay for potential" offer from Indiana, Boston, or Brooklyn? Stern doesn't have any attachment to the Hornets and he will still sell the Hornets with or without Gordon.

My mistake on mislabeling Gordon's injury from last season. But as you can see, different injuries are making the guy miss several games early on in his career. I understand the knee contusion, but in general, he seems like a guy who everytime he has some sort of injury, he won't be one of those guys that can play through them. I don't know, I'd just be wary if I'm the Hornets and banking on Eric Gordon as the future franchise guy.

Because of a bone bruise? He hasn't even had 1 knee surgery ever.

This is not how trade exceptions work.

Depends what he meant. If he meant the Hornets would get the Lakers' TPE then no, it isn't how they work. But I think he just meant the Hornets would get a TPE from sending out Kaman and not taking money back, which is absolutely right.

Gordon will still be with the Hornets for at least 3 more years when he signs his extension in the offseason.

Aminu was a role player which he is.

Kaman can get someone good.

And that pick can be a star player.

Are the Hornets still dumb for doing that over Odom, Scola and Martin?

What about the part that a 28 year old Kevin Martin already making what Gordon is asking for, after proving over many years to be even more injury prone than Gordon a better player? You're description of the Lakers trade was New Orleans getting All-Star type players with no flaws that would have made them a playoff team? Is that not correct?

I know. I have no idea why they didn't do it. They "wanted him to turn into the player of old." Us fans have been waiting for that for the last 3+ years. We used it on Charlie Bell and then gave Kwame 7 million for the year. Am I missing something here? It is either pure retardation or there is something wrong with me. How you can call yourself a professional GM and make those kind of moves is absolute atrocity. It's a joke. Getting Kaman could put the Warriors into the playoffs. If he doesn't make that move, he should be fired or the owners should go **** themselves.

Me and my dad had a good laugh when we seen Kwame was signed to a 1 year $7 million deal. I remember when he played for the Lakers, couldn't stand him. Stephen A summed him up best.

Also I don't know how you just go out and grab ex-player with no coaching experience whatsoever and insert him in as head coach

i have always said it and ill say it again, Chris Kaman is underrated. He needs to stay healthy, but if he can he is a hell of an option on offense and can block alot of shots. Put him on a team that uses him correctly and he will average 18-12 with 2.5 blocks a game

Eric Gordon, c'mon.

Last year he averaged 22ppg on 17fga; undoubtedly the fga's will increase being that there is no Blake Griffin. I think it is hard to argue that Eric Gordon won't average 25 a game with the increased volume (very consistent 45% shooter) and maturity in his game. He is worth more than Luis Scola and Kevin Martin - and I like both of their games though Kevin's in very, very one dimensional and Luis is +30.

Eric's knew isn't really that big of a worry - it's not structural.

because they were going to then sign nene or marc to a deal. even if they missed on those and ended up with dalembert like they did, are you going to say

lowry/lee/parson/pau/dalembert

is so much worse than

lowry/martin/parson/scola/dalembert?

cause lee's ability to be a 2 way player pretty much evens out martin's offensive advantage. plus you upgrade at PF. the difference between pau and scola> the difference between lee and martin. would losing dragic hurt? yea, but i mean you are talking about your backup PG. you dont turn down that deal because you are concerned about your backup PG...

I don't think so. They are 11-8, should have kept Chuck Hayes. Houston just always seems to do well no matter who they have. I do admit you make good points tho.

I guarentee the Bucks will be looking for a C since Bogut broke his ankle. we'll give you Illysova and Udrih for Kamen and a future 2nd rounderYeah as a Bucks fan with Bogut out. I can see the owner still try salvage the season. I could see Bucks offer Delfino,Beno,Ersan for Kaman. Maybe Bucks can even toss in a second rounder if needed. lol But I wouldn't part with our first though. Delfino and Ersan are expiring and Beno has a player option next year.

Trade him to the Wolves, who really need a C, for a prospect like Wesley Johnson. Win-win

Gordon out with a knee contusion and no contract extension, Kaman being shelved so that young guys can get more playing time (and being shopped around), Aminu has had little to no impact for the Hornets.

So essentially, it was CP3 for a future 1st rd pick. :facepalm:

There's no deal in place, I'm reliably told, but Hornets have effectively shelved Chris Kaman until they can find trade home for him

ESPNSteinLine Marc Stein
Kaman not with team tonight w/Hornets playing host to Orlando. Coach Monty Williams tells reporters Kaman shelved so youngsters can get PT

Well, the CP3 deal wasnt exactly what was best for the Hornets. Obviously they were going to get a much better deal with the Lakers trade, thats why the GM and everyone else signed off. It was the league and the rest of the owners that prevented the deal and the next best thing was to get a mediocre package from the Clippers involving Gordon and crap. I dont get how anyone expected any of those players to remain on the Hornets. Gordon is a solid player, outside of him, nobody else in that deal was good. Hell, even Gordon is not an all-star quality player, but a solid player nontheless. This is no surprise to me.

Too lazy to check if it was already mentioned, but Woj said the asking price for Kaman was too high according to a GM. Hornets wanted a draft pick (1st pick), plus young players I think is what woj said... lol too tired go to his twitter page and read it






If that is true, then New Orleans is Nuts! No team is gonna come close to giving that for a soon-to-be free agent who is too Injury-prone to offer the kinda new contract that Kaman and his agent are demanding. I have heard that Kaman wants a new deal starting at 12-14 million a year for 5 years. That is down right Crazy. To me he is nothing more then a MLE player. And since Kaman will have the power to just walk away from whoever trades for him after this short season, no WAY will that team offer up anything of real value...NO WAY!! :facepalm:

Kaman for Diaw!

why the hell would you trade for expiring contracts? the bobcats are the worst team in the league and won't attract any big free agents over the next handful of years

Miami and Dallas are the best options for Kaman. He can make both those team much better. Question is, does either of them have much to offer?

glad to see the pacers are interested in him as we need a backup to hibbert but they want too much for him

To the nuggets for Chris Anderson and al Harrington? :)

I honestly would rather keep Harrington to be honest. He's been one of our best players so far.
