Now that CP3 has been traded to the Clippers for Eric Gordon,Al Farauq Aminu and the T-Wolves 2012 1st rd lottery pick.Now it’s time for Mr.Demps to start signing free agents.This team needs a starting PG Rodney Stuckey,Gilbert Arenas,Eugene “Pooh” Jeter,Acie Law,Ben Uzoh and Carlos Arroyo.We need a starter at PF it’s not going to be Carl Landry he’s a reserve yeah he did start for DWest when he had that knee injury but we need a veteran like Kris Humphries,Craig Smith,Yi Jianlian,C.J Miles,Earl Clark and Solomon Jones.So who you think the Hornets should sign?

    Yep we definitely need a point guard: i hope we get rodney stuckey!!
    and we definitely need a PF, but if we can sign Landry I think is more than capable of starting for us (as he showed in the playoffs and during his sacramento run as the starter) and then all we have to do is sign a quality reserve. Plus Landry’s better than all the other people named above :p

    We don’t need a PF! Kaman at C… Okafor at PF

    I’d sign Patty Mills as a FA!

    Bring Back Dan Dickau!

    What is he talking about C.Landry will be nothing more than a RESERVE? he is starter material. I rather have C.Landry at start and have Yi Jianlian at back up, sign Alexis Ajinca, Trade Okafor to the Rockets for there draft pick or Johnny Flynn or both if they go for it! it probably could work.

    PG:Johnny Flynn, Jarrett Jack, One of those D-League All-Stars PG
    SG:Eric Gordon, Marco Belinelli, D-L all-atars SG
    SF:Trevor Ariza, Al Farauq Aminu, Q-Pon
    PF:Carl Landry, Yi Jianlian, Lance Thomas
    C: Chris Kaman, Alexis Ajinca, Brian Butch

    1st RD Draft Picks= Hou#10, Minny#1, & NOH #UNK

    man we should be set then!!!

      Landry is undesize at PF you seen what happened against him and Gasol in the playoffs a mismatch from the start.

    I’m thinking sign Landry he already has experience with Hornets and is a solid player(he is 28,so he’s good for 2-3 more 12pt 6reb years or maybe 14pts and 8rebs if he becomes a full starter)

    Trade Kaman to Bobcats for D.J. Augustin,bobcats need a big man and they said they are trying to rebuild so Kaman’s 12million contract(expiring after this season) will free up for the free agents they want next year and the hornets get a young pg who reminds me a little of a poor mans CP3. Augustin avg 14pt and 7ast so he is still growing (plus he’s a NOLA native)

    Trade Okafor or Kaman to Houston for Jonny Flynn and Jordan Hill/ Patrick Paterson or Kyle Lowry and Scola/Hill/Paterson

    Also push for 6th man to be Mickeal Pietrus or Michael Redd
    Best line up in my opinion would be

    PG Augustin / Jack
    SG Gordan/ Bellini
    SF Ariza/Pondexter/
    PF Landry or Humpfries / Al Thornton or Ike Diogu or Solomon Jones
    C Okafor / Ryan Hollin or Samuel Dalembert

    Or trade Okafor to Houston for Jonny Flynn

      I forgot about SF Al Faraqu Aminu before Pondexter so it

      PG Augustin / Jack
      SG Gordon / Bellini/ (Redd or Pietrus )
      SF Ariza/Aminu/Pondexter
      PF Landry /Thornton or Humpries or S.Jones
      C Okafor / Hollins or Dalembert

    WoW, redux… can people in Nola send a public apology for dissing Stern last week? Gordon is a GREAT get!

    Augustin for Kamen is good, Kamen w/ Okafor at PF is formidable, and getting a Houston draft pick for either Nola big man would be tremendous.

    But I like Jack and Landry alot. Yi? You can’t be serious with that. That guy has only ever sucked, and on bad teams at that. I really hope he’s out of the league for good.

    live at school: YES LOVE THIS TRADE AND Okafor and Kaman would be an okay tandem as long as Okafor learns to shoot
