The Kevin Martin/Scola/Odom/Dragic package would've been better. More proven and contender worthy.

We still dont know what kind of player Anthony Davis will be. He could either be good or great...there a lot of "good" players in the league. Same with Rivers....

Contender worthy? I'm not defending the veto but Eric Gordon/Rivers/Davis has way more potential to contend and is more attractive for fans.

They won't make the playoffs in the Wild Wild West for the next few yrs, so might as well stockpile on those lottery picks.

no because that would have still been a good team. typical 7th and 8th seed in playoffs. basically nba purgatory. YOU DONT WANT THAT.

ya right, that team is nowhere near contenders. They could make the play offs as a 6th seed and a 1st round exit at most.

lol that team would be in the worst possible position. no young guys to get better and good enough to make a run at playoffs or make it

if they resign gordon and kaman, why not? to me, they're only a point guard away.

right, but if they kept david west. they would have had more wins. more wins equals lower lottery pick

people are assuming anthony davis is a lock to be the next tim duncan and rivers is a lock to be the next ray allen already. lol.... Thats their max ceiling, understand its just a possibility. One or both could end up being a bust, or just average "good" players in their careers.

It'll be an interesting year, thats for sure. The Warrriors could make some noise this year too.

Kaman was just a salary dump. They're not interesting in bring him back.

Their core is way too young to do anything significant. Gordon can't even stay healthy and he's only been in the league 3 yrs or so.

DWest was never part of the deal, and was a UFA he was leaving no matter what...

Its definitely a better package than the 3-way deal they were going to settle for. Better to continue sucking and trying to build through the draft than have a core that isnt winning anything and locked up for a few years.

They would have been a little more competitive but knowing how Odom's season ended, we can scratch him off the team. If he won't play for a title contender like Dallas, no way he would in new Orleans.

In the end, there's no way to look at it other than, the Hornets made out like bandits in this trade. Most, if not all, casual fans would take their chances with Rivers and Davis over Martin, Scola, and Dragic.

Since the NBA is trying to sell the team, it worked out in the end. Benson doesn't buy this team had the LAL deal went through.

I do not like Rivers at all on this team. Did they draft him to be a back SG to Gordon? I am very skeptical as to Rivers playing PG when he averaged more turnovers than assists in college. You don't want a ball hog PG when you just drafted a big man that needs to be fed down low.

Just my opinion.

Kevin Martin/Scola/Odom/Dragic

Plus a filler is pretty much an 8th seed starting lineup.

They got the draft rights for davis in a trade? If they took the lakers package they would have drafted someone else first?

LOL no. Mediocre starters, if even a playoff contender, they'd be a 7 or 8 seed, and have their terrible contracts on the book and unable to sign anyone else in free agency. That trade offer was awful.

It wouldn't have made them a contender for anything other than getting stomped in the 1st round every year or just missing the playoffs until those guys expired. And then they'd be in the same position they are now. Making the trade w/ LA would have set NO back 5 years from where they are now.

Please tell me this is a joke, please... because if it isn't, then it may be one of the most ignorant things i've read recently..... one lets right now cut Odom out of that.... if he didn't wanna play for Dallas, what in the hell makes you think he'd wanna play with us???

And if our team was-
Jack-K Mart-Ariza-Scola-Okafor(i guess)

then we'd be able to make the postseason but lose early, that isn't a contending team at all, that is a team that has no future and no contending capabilities....

At least we got Gordon, Aminu and a pick in the real trade..... set us up good.

Even if they are just "average" players the Hornets have a shitload of cap-space and a guy name Eric Gordon, who I heard was pretty good.


kaman sucks

he was a filler for the trade

Finally someone else notices this. :nod: People talk about this guy as if he's a top 10 center or something.

An Rondo led offense with Rondo, Bradley, Ariza (Green is out), Smith and Okafor? :puke:

If they had gotten the Houston package, no chance they end up with one of the worst records in the NBA, but fringe lottery instead. Basically they'd be salary capstrung and below average for years.

He looked good over the last few games of last season, and im glad to hear he has been putting in the work in the offseason.
