Re: Hornets sign Ike Diogu
If Scott can realize what Ike is best for, then the hornets will get a steal. Ike is a post scorer. He needs the ball, and needs minutes. If they think he can be a pick and roll guy, or just be a defender and rebounder off the bench, then he won't be effective. He actually needs what David West gets: carte blanche on offense. If he's allowed to post on the high block, he can be a powerful offensive weapon for the second unit which they desperately need.
Their offense when Paul leaves the floor is non-existent, and a second unit who can at least score a basket will do wonders for the team by taking pressure off of Paul and West and allowing them to play less than 40 minutes a game.
