Hornets Sign Mexican Center. What next?
The T-P has an article up saying the Hornets signed the “6-9 or 6’10″ 245 lb. Mexican “Center”, Gustavo Ayon. This means the Hornets now have an excess of bigs, regardless of whether Ayon is a C or a PF, to go along with the excess at SF and possibly a 2012 1st Rounder to use as trade pieces.
The question is what are the they planning to do with this excess, when, and to get what? We all will have to sit back and see. [In Dell I trust.]

I think the Vasquez trade makes no sense. Vasquez is a 6-6 SG who has a nice handle for an SG, but he can't guard NBA PGs. So he is no help to us as he doesn't solve our PG problem. Also, he plays SG where Gordon will get the bulk of the minutes. I seriously doubt the reports we want Vasquez.
I hope Dell isn't planning on moving Emeka Okafor or Chris Kaman just yet. Let's see how they work together. I've never heard of this Gustavo Ayon before. Can his game adjust to the NBA style of play? Gustavo will still need time to learn Coach Williams' strategy. Until Gustavo learns it and understands his role, it wouldn't be wise to move Okafor or Kaman just yet. There's no rush here. Unless it's a blockbuster move to acquire better talent, I prefer to keep both guys
