    Obviously, Iggy has to have interest in a rebuilding team, so he might not even entertain the idea of coming to Houston.

    But, assuming a contender (Nets) doesn't want an aging, defensive-minded player with a championship pedigree, do we bring Iggy in to mentor Green/KPJ?

    He entertained the thought of coming here a few years ago, but we're obviously a different team from then. I wouldn't be mad if they picked him up for a veteran leadership spot, but I think he goes to a playoff team.

    Or he could go 'home' and mentor Kuminga & Moody.

    I heard the Morley dude tried to swindle us by offering Harris. He was smacked down, word to mother.

    I hope that the Lowry situation is cleared up ASAP so that there can (hopefully) be a Wall market for desperate would-be contenders.

    I don't know a ton of the ins and outs of Zach Collins's game, but if we can afford him, it seems he'd be a great investment.

    We have no choice but to swallow a 44 million dollar Tank Commander John Wall for this current year. We will have to waste a spot on a point guard cause he can’t play back to backs. (Augustin). Rockets will really look pretty once his salary is gone.

    He's really good at not playing. So in that regard, he will help our tanking.

    Too bad, Vanderbilt would have been very interesting on the Rockets.

    Possibly! Thank you for the half glass full optimism!....

    Our team has some of the same maturity issues as the Pellies.

    However, they shouldn't let that new found cap space go to waste!

    Considering that Pelicans need to keep Zion happy and that PG is an incredibly important position, let's hope that they look at John Wall as an opportunity. They only have two more years before having to pay Zion, they will have two more years of Wall at a high price. It just makes too much sense if they are going to let Lonzo go.

    Come on Pelicans, do us a solid here. You need a PG.
