    Besides Luis Scola, Kevin Martin, Lamar Odom and Goran Dragic, Hornets will also receive a draft pick from Houston, source says.

    So, we started the year last year with this starting lineup:

    Yao
    Scola
    Battier
    Martin
    Brooks

    All 5 of those guys are gone. I'd understand if we went into full blown rebuilding mode. But with:

    Gasol
    Patterson?
    Budinger?
    Lee?
    Lowry

    We've gone from one team with a maxed out ceiling to a team with a ceiling that's not quite maxed out, but isn't like anywhere near a championship contender. I don't really care if they get Nene too, that team is destined for either a first or 2nd round exit. I'd understand trying to land a bell cow like Chris Paul. But while Gasol is an upgrade of a piece to Martin, it's painfully clear by now that he's a 2nd banana on a contender. And we don't have anything that looks like a 1st banana, nor do I see a path to getting one.

    You have obviously never seen Navarro play even once in your entire life. You are trolling.

    Martin can score but he Is awful defensively. Lee isn't his equal offensively but he's a strong defender that can score.

    Lee pairs better with Chase(another gifted scorer) at the 3 as well

    ATW, CCR pointed out earlier that trade machine isn't updated with new CBA.

    I've seen him play OUTSIDE THE NBA, in those games he's been outstanding.

    Playing in IN THE NBA he's been ordinary and just another guy. You obviously don't watch the NBA much with the comments you make though.

    I look at it this way. 500 with Scola and martin. Probably a little better without them if you add Gasol. If you add someone else? Maybe top 5 playoff team.
