that's just a side thing. They got a good PG, and they turned Peja's contract into smaller pieces they can do other little trades. wierdest thing is Jack's from Monty's neighborhood and his dad was kind of a mentor for Monty

Yah, Jack being his friend helps, but the bottom line is that Bayless sucked and JAck is a VERY good 3rd guard. He's a good starter for that matter.

The new GM in NO(Demps?) has done a great job at remaking that roster on the fly. He kept the core of Paul,West,Okafor intact and added in a handful of guys who are either role players or who fall in between role player and star.

Jack and Ariza particularly were really good additions, both fit really well with Paul and they are relatively cheap. Ariza is the running the floor, defending, finishing etc. athletic forward that a great PG needs and Jack can both back up Paul and play with him, allowing another ball handler on the floor so you can't pressure Paul so easily. He can also knock down open 3s off the ball.

Belinelli and Green gave them more shooters on the perimeter and Jason Smith gave them a big guy who could back up Okafor and West and knock down open shots too. Even Aaron Gray was a useful big body to add.

I can't believe Paul would want to leave anymore. Few if any places are going to offer him a better chance to win that can also afford him
