The Buzz in Charlotte
« on: June 28, 2018, 03:08:15 PM »
Welcome to the home of the Hornets!


It's been a busy offseason already; dealing star young big Myles Turner, shipping off 2nd leading scorer Enes Kanter and torpedoing any shot to enter Free Agency. But that's all in the past and new management has been brought in. The PR department has been overhauled and there is a team working diligently on a new logo.

Notes/Highlights from the introductory press conference:
recent draftee Jacob Evans headlines the summer league team 
There is optimism regarding RFA Marcus Smart but they will likely let him test the market
They are open to using their remaining MLE but roster spots are at a premium
The Hornets appear to have an eye towards the summer of 2019 when their books really open up

As for the quotes of Franchise PG Jrue Holiday questioning the direction of the franchise, there was a sit down with the new GM and owner Michael Jordan. The team will do right by him but he is also under contract and is expected to go out and perform like the All-Star he is.

That's it for now, Michael and the new GM are off to Vegas for Summer League and not at all for the golf or gambling.

Charlotte has offered the tax-payer MLE to Demarcus Cousins according to sources.

  • Brent: What's up guys?
    October 17, 2019, 12:35:17 AM
  • Vik: Hey Brent
    October 17, 2019, 12:40:32 AM
  • Vik: I found new Hornets GM so back to full again in BOD
    October 17, 2019, 12:40:54 AM
  • Brent: Awesome.  I got someone to join and it looks like he is going to take the Broncos in NFLC.
    October 17, 2019, 12:48:18 AM
  • Brent: That would make the AFC West complete with 4 GMs.  NFC South has 4 GMs.  NFC West is 3/4, AFC South is 2/4, NFC East is 2/4, AFC East is 3/4 and NFC North is 3/4.
    October 17, 2019, 12:50:52 AM
  • Brent: AFC North is 3/4.

  • Daddy: What would you give up for Ramsey @Brian?
    October 17, 2019, 01:49:51 AM
  • Daddy: Khalil Mack or Laremy Tunsel even? What is fair value in your opinion?
    October 17, 2019, 01:50:50 AM
  • Daddy: Would you trade Frank Ragnow & Noah Fant for Jalen Ramsey? (Be careful, ive seen a lot of your trades)
    October 17, 2019, 02:01:41 AM
  • Daddy: I ask because I see our picks somewhere between 20-32 and those 2 guys were drafted @ #20 in 2018 & 2019 respectively. Ramsey is imo the best at what he does. Are they?
    October 17, 2019, 02:04:28 AM
  • indiansnation: Na im keeping him
    October 17, 2019, 09:52:12 AM
  • Daddy: Exactly. Just like Bob Barker. The Price is Right.

    October 17, 2019, 11:37:17 PM
  • Daddy: Doesnt matter who we get as manager if we dont get some Pitching.
    Yesterday at 12:48:51 AM
  • Daddy: Phillies can do better, so can the Flyers. It sucks when your team makes poor personnel moves and doesnt draft well.
    Yesterday at 12:50:52 AM
  • Daddy: 76ers process is the way to go. Ive got big hopes for them. The present and future.
    Yesterday at 12:51:58 AM

  • Daddy: Apparently the MLB has put forth the idea of reducing the number of minor-league teams by more than a quarter (42 teams would be cut in the reported proposal). Additionally, MLB's proposal would reduce the draft to 20 rounds, reduce the number of contracted players in each organization, and alter the structure -- with some affiliates moving up or down in level.
    Yesterday at 09:54:11 PM
  • indiansnation: Trying to pay players in minors more noney and cut down the cost of it also. I think once these moves are done i can see mlb doing a baseball realinement for mlb teams also
