    Lamb actually had a somewhat productive season in Charlotte. Averaged almost 20 mpg and had a 15.9 PER. He just isn't good enough on D for the coach to trust him once playoffs roll around. As such he is expendable if the alternative is to lose a player who actually did make the playoff rotation.

    Tbh I think Hawes would be a great addition if we had our core already locked into contracts. But since we are still trying to figure out what we are doing with our large offers, can't really bite here.

    I was assuming he would sit on our bench and never play a minute for us. I'd still do the deal. The draft is a chance to hit a home run. I don't think we'll be able to do that in free agency, and we have cap room. This is a golden opportunity that we need to look into. You can't find a better use of the cap space.

    LOL. Saw "Jeremy" and immediately thought "Lin". I guess that makes me a LOF somewhere in my subconscious.

    Kind of shows how some advanced stats can be misleading if you're only playing backup minutes. He was ranked #5 in DRPM for SG and #15 for overall RPM for SG.

    I'm really not sure why the Hornets signed Lamb to an extension. I guess they were trying keep him on a cheap contract as a 3P shooter, but he ended up only shooting 31% from 3P. Is a guy who played only 1227 minutes during the regular season and only got garbage time minutes in the playoffs worth $7 mil per? Even with the higher cap?

    WTF? Bad defender and still has 2 years @ $6,333,333 left and only shot 31% from 3P.

    Got to be part of something bigger?

    Young = 20th pick

    Marco = 22nd pick

    Wyd?

    Ariza and Bev should both net mid late first easily then.

    I can't figure out why the Hornets signed Lamb to that contract extension last November.

    Did Sacto actually make a good trade for once? I don't believe it

    Tinman also believes the other Jeremy on the Hornets is better, so we gotta take this deal
