    Lamb or Hoss? No, thank you. We don't need no farm animals.

    Morey needs to take this deal. First rounder AND Lin (who has had success with MDA). Lin can come off the bench or packaged in another trade later in year. Hawes may be more attractive to Les because its a shorter deal, and cheaper.

    i wonder how long it will be until Lamb finally finds his place in the NBA. or will he just keep bouncing around the league.

    In this case, it's not Jeremy Lin...it's Jeremy Lamb.

    They both suck andtheir contracts are way too long.
    Brooklyn should do it. Since they already cleared that much capspace with Thad.

    Lmao!!! Someone can't read. Besides I thought it was well known on this board by now that Jeremy Lin is a free agent. Wonder if Morey wants Lamb back, afterall Morey likes to keep recycling former rockets players.

    Honestly, is the 22nd pick really worth much of anything?

    Wow, what a steal! Per coachbadlee Lamb is the next T-Mac, so we should jump on this.

    That Hawes deal isn't so bad. I'd say it's a great use of capspace. We're going to have Brewer on the books anyway.

    We're in rebuilding mode. Need to do deals like this.

    I think Hawes is on the decline and barely even get playing time in Charlotte and not worth picking him up if he's going to sit on our bench too.

    Lamb is that bad? I thought he has a solid season? Guess he started strong and fell off.

    I wouldn't mind him as a backup with the 1st.

    Id trade for Lamb and the 1st, and then go dump Brewer with the first lol

    Lamb started well then he was so bad he couldn't get any minutes. He and his contract are awful.

    I think Lamb would be a nice backup SG and can play some SF as well. I don't have a preference between him and KJ but I think I trust Lamb to produce more than I do KJ. I think Hawes could be a nice backup C behind Capela but I think we'd need someone better than Hawes to help Capela out. I don't think Hawes should take away minutes from Beasley, Harrell or DMo(if he comes back).
