    Rumors are it is to "mentor" Anthony Davis, but Perkins must have not had any suitors and the Pels are spending a hell of a lot of money at C. They already paid Asik and Ajinca a combined $13.5M and those guys will get all the minutes, before even accounting for "small" ball lineups with Davis at C.

    I know people love Chuck Hayes, but I would have preferred Perkins to him for the minimum and we probably could have promised Perkins way more minutes by taking at least a partial Duncan/Spurs approach to keeping Dwight healthy and rested. Plus we are actually a contender and the Pelicans are going to be clawing for a 7th/8th seed, at best.

    Menacing scowls can't be taught either. And Perkins is an all time great in that category.

    Don't forget the speed of a statue is also hard to learn. Davis is gonna have a hell of a teacher. :grin:

    Don't get this. That's four centers on their team (if you count Davis).

    I guess the Pelicans wanted some of that championship DNA injected into their team.
