I read this morning that Utah is going to match, but is going to wait until the last minute to officially do it so that the Hornets $ is still locked up.

Not surprising. Utah has indicated for a while that they would match any offer for Hayward. I like Hayward, but that seems like too much to pay for him, regardless of which team signs him.

Utah beat writer said that being RFA inflated his value. If he was an UFA he'd be in the $10 mil/yr range.

Yea I'm sorry 15.75 a year for Gordon Hayward?
I don't believe he's worth that much.

4 years in the league coming off career highs in points, rebounds, assists, and steals. He is an automatic upgrade over MKG

So he's an upgrade still doesn't mean he's worth the cap hit.

He's basically a "max player"

Who's making more than guys like John Wall, Lamarcus Aldridge etc.

He did exactly what he did in his contract year to get the money, but I think that's a little too much.

Deal with Cleveland finally went through. We got rid of Brendan Haywood and one our draft picks Dwight Powell, in exchange for Scotty Hopson (D-League, NBA constant call ups), and cash. So with the Hayward deal done, maybe we can actually try to sign someone now.

Signed PF Marvin Williams (Utah last season) to a 2 year/$14 Million contract. Good to see we're getting some decent depth

Best thing possible happened for the Hornets, Utah matched the Hayward offer. That was going to be a disaster

Have to agree. Wouldve loved it for cheaper, but the price tag killed the deal for sure.

williams gives the team some depth and versatility though his shooting isnt as consistent as id like. too many unc and duke players for my liking as well. i read a report though i dont know how credible it is that theyre going to go be going for lance stephenson now.

it would be a great move that the team needs. he's not a pure shooter but his fg pct jumped to 49% last year with 35.2 pct from 3 point land. he can be aggressive but hes not a chucker. he's physical and can handle the ball which will take some weight off of kemba. the bulls and cavs would be the overwhelming favorites, but hes the one guy the hornets could sign right now that could make them contenders to at least get to the eastern conference finals with maybe a break or two.

Not sure what to think about the Stephenson situation. National guys say Hornets are interested, local guys disagree.

Mavs and Pacers are other 2 teams involved.

Apparently we wanted Hinrich but he wantedto stay with the Bulls.

Roberts seems like a good offensive back up for cheap. IDK what he brings to the defense. I like that he was 94% from the line last season.

mike miller to the cavs 2 years 5.5 mil. love lance on the hornets, 3rd year is a team option as well and they didnt have to overpay like i thought they would.

unless paul george becomes the mvp of the league it gives the hornets an excellent chance to leapfrog the pacers.

I like the Stephenson signing. Good defensively and developing on offense. Has the potential to be a bargain deal for the Hornets if he keeps developing and getting better.

Helluva team friendly deal. I love this contract.

Jerry and the Panthers are grateful for the distraction.
