In the NO Podcast ep 272: Motiejunas and an Improved Hield

Published: January 1, 2017

Motiejunas! Buddy Hield’s improved play! Rogue one! 4 wins! 1 game out of the 8th seed! Jrue Holiday’s next contract!

Michael and I have a lot to talk about after our hiatus, and we give it all the love and care it deserves.

    Man..Yall really do put in some time into your podcast..that was a couple of hours right?
    But you 2 are the Best Follow for intelligent/Fun Pelican Coverage.
    I listen when i can.
    Agree with Dmo=secruity blanket
    Im higher then a Darius Songalia Ceiling thou.
    Im With Mike on Milsaps Fit.
    My Hesitation on the trade..Is because im really loving Tyreke off the Bench..Think its been a huge piece to the Puzzle. Having a Dominate/strong Bench Unit..Is hella Good. And he is very Unique player to replace what he brings.
    Trade i would do instead of 2 draft picks is Throwing in a Fan Favorite..No Not Buddy
    Tyreke+Ajincas Contract yes!+ 1st rounder + Cheick Diallo! Has Both sides Happy. So now if they dont Resign Tyreke..They still Have Diallo to justify for thier Fanbase.
    No Way Buddy in any trade.
    He will Maximize his talent…he has a special Work ethic. Buddy will Go down as Pelicans Best SG of all time…and will be hard to Surpass him.
    Special Dude.
    Im surprised when Ryan asked what Move you would make given control..You didnt say the Milsap trade.
    Last but not least Jrue..I love Jrue. I would lock him in for 4 or 5 years…but 4 year 74 would have to get it done or 5 year 95… if hes pushing for More then that…I would move on. They stuck with him through tough times…If he says me more…Im done…and moving on.
    My #1 target would then be a Much more reasonable Price and still Allow the Pels to be competitive.
    #1 Sean Livingston in a Starting Role. 6’8 PG championship Pedigree, Expierence with Gentry.
    Free Agent. Not As high Profile as the other point guards hitting FA. I would move on from Jrue high $ amount and get Shaun on a 4 year deal. 40-50
    Instead of Jrues $100 dollar contract in a jiffy.
    Backcourt. Livingston n Buddy
    SF. Solomon Hill/Dante
    Frontcourt. Milsap N AD
    I will feel better about the Pels if this Happens
    Other Free agent PG (MY) rankings
    2.Patty Mills
    3.Shelvin Mack
    4.Deron Williams
    5.Michael Carter Williams
    6.George Hill
    7.Jeff Teague
    That ranking has alot to do with Price Point as well.
    If Im not Paying Jrue…I probably not Paying Hill n Teague thier Market Value either…thats why they are lower.
    Patty Mills would be Fun..Think You will get great Value there..In a Startn Role but The Question on Defense will be there…I would love to see Patty in a Fast paced startn role…He will Surprise many.
    The Milsap/AD front court Changes Everything for me thou…Im not going to Overpay for Jrue Now…If They get those 2 together.
    Im a Big Demps Guy…But these next couple of Months can go really bad if not played right.
    Dont make Jrue another EG decision

    With the MoNey saved from Jrue.
    I would Probably Go after Both
    Livingston n Iguadala in Starting Roles.
    Pushes Solomon Hill to the Bench
    C.Anthony Davis
    Top 5 team in West. Built in GS rivarly
    Thats my Dream Team…
    And not too Farfetched

    I’d love to hear a podcast debating whether to pull for playoffs or the better draft position. I’d like to hear your views.
