Default At #21, the Hornets select



He should at least be better than Antonio Daniels as a backup for CP3.

This team needs players at multiple positions. This is a start.

And Miami traded Marcus Thornton to New Orleans for 2 future 2nd round picks.

Marcus Thornton is solid. Perhaps he can take some of a load of Chris' back. But they still need a big man. Do they have enough cap to go for one?

Yeah, they know there's a need for a big man. They're working on it. Thornton will most likely play alongside Paul sometimes or play alongside Collison. They didn't really get Thornton to back up Paul.

One big they've been considering is Brandon Bass.

Quote:
Bass said he and his agent both have been in contact with New Orleans.

“They’re working on it,” Bass said. “Hopefully they’re working on it a lot faster so we can get everything done because a lot of teams are out there showing interest and New Orleans is going to be one of the teams I really give a good look to.”

I know Thornton wouldn't back up Paul, he's a 2 guard. Just saying if he could score like he did in college, it would take a serious load off Chris' back.

Bass would be good if they could get him, and maybe they could play Wright at the 3 some. I don't think Peja is going to cut it anymore.

Mos Def. Peja cant be depended upon anymore. Its time for Juju to start. He showed last year that in the starting role he can score and contribute with his energy alone. I really hope we get Pargo. then we would have a wealth of scoring on the first and second units. CP3 and rasual on the first and pargo and marcus on the second. And, who can forget how dynamic the team was a season ago when pargo and cp3 would play together in the backcourt. Hopefully some frontcourt help will come as well.

They need to somehow get rid of Daniels and Brown and maybe even Peterson. Then perhaps bring in Pargo with 2 other bigs.

Mo Pete is the only one i'd consider keeping. but then if we got Pargo, that kinda would be an overload at the guard position.

Who do you want them to try and get as far as bigs are concerned? I'd be happy with Bass and Pachulia.
