It is not so much about what the player wants, but what the agent wants to justify his/her existence. I agree that the supermax is a very bad idea.

Your opinion on Batum is yours and you are entitled to it. I would disagree. In my opinion the best thing for the Batum contract is to let it play out. He can play, just not up to the level his contract would expect. He is not a good candidate to be waived or stretched either

I agree, the Hornets do not need to be giving up first round picks, unless there is a reasonably young sure fire rotation player involved with years left on his contract.

Although Williamson, Morant, and Barrett get the majority of the headlines, there are plenty of "value" players among the top 25 of a recent player ranking. Not just a lot of big men.

In my opinion neither one of them should be All-NBA. Both played on losing teams and neither team made the playoffs. Both are good players and Walker is a fan favorite. But to quote Herm Edwards "you play to win the game".

To which "assets" are you referring?

If I remember correctly, Kupchak terminated some (if not all) of the scouts. Any update on that front as far as how the scouting team is now viewed?

Johnathan DeLong has an article with trade scenarios for Kevin Love and Andre Drummond. Instead of them how would you rate a trade for Derrick Favors since there has been speculation that Utah would like to move him?

If I understand right Memphis made a proposal and Charlotte responded with a "take out the trash" kind of counter offer and unacceptable protection on the draft pick involved.

I'm pretty sure Jordan would not allow Kupchak to trade Walker with the all star game in Charlotte and the embarassment that would have caused. Was probably also a reason he was not traded last year like he should have been.

What do the Hornets have to use to bring in another bad salary? If Walker and Lamb leave other than Bacon, Bridges, and Graham the Hornets do not have anyone left to trade for a bad salary, unless maybe someone wants Monk.

I don't know, but with all of the bounces on the rim it could have traveled as far as Lamb's.

After this year's voting I don't put much stock into a player being an all star. What I want to see is player development and a system implemented that does not depend on one player playing hero ball all the time.

Supposedly the business side of the Hornets is run well. I assume Jordan stays out of that side except for major decisions. If so, he needs to do the same for the players side. Let Kupchak (or a gm to be named) make those decisions and only set character type guidelines.

Glad to see that you did not include the Lakers' mess in your list.

I picked Indiana over Dallas because Indy has some players who can cover on defense AND Olidipo will take the pressure of carrying the offense off Walker so he can spend SOME energy on defense.

I think Indiana is a better fit than Dallas

I find it interesting that the first group was seasoned with several years of college as their body of work to show what they were capable of, and the second with the exception of Kaminsky is based on "upside" and "potential"

A lot of posters on various sites have called for some combination of Biyombo, Williams, and/or Batum to be waived. Given the current rules in the CBA is that even reasonably feasible or wise?
