Didn't even click to read when I saw bleacher report.

Not saying that you are jumping the gun but until it lands on hoopshype, I say nothing to see here

Chef I agree  the sources are not that good . But you have to think it is at least some talk between the two teams.  Both sources saying  the same things neither good  but it tends to at least make smoke.   Most likely  about as good as we could get for Kemba

Hell yeah.

 

Wade, Batum, Lebron, and Kemba are 4 pillars of my fandom the past 15 years. Trade Jeff Green and I'm set.

dav7z, did this really need its own thread? I could create about 10 different threads if I google all the current Hornets trade "rumors", we see this every year, 99% of these things don't happen

I'd take trade 2, but not 1. We'd be alright with the second one.

Yes I think it does.When 610 radio says it is going down today. This isn't a armchair thread with a 100o post. . If you don't want to read it don't. Even if it is not true I can still start a thread. . This site use to start 5 to ten threads a week  with a lot more traffic.

Agreed. Trade Howard sure but don't blow it up and send Kemba packing, please!

Heck, the Cavs are reportedly interested in Jordan, talk then into some Howard instead.

Like he just said on 610, when you've gone almost two seasons without winning 4 games in a row, then you've got to do something, right? I still like most of the players and think most of it is on coaching. Oh, and Dwight.

Man.... it's not a horrible deal but I hope it's not true. I really do like our team. Our biggest problem is coaching... I've said this so many times, but why break it up when the coach is probably the problem. You don't know how that pick will pan out. You know that Kemba is an allstar player. Those don't grow on trees in Charlotte

I like to call this the Jeff Fisher theory. That guy had 3 QBs other teams found a way to work with.

you can't imagine how I wish your source to be right.
I don't want to trade Kemba, not at all.

I'm dead set against a Kemba trade.  Its hard to get a star in this league.  We spent the first decade of bobdom trying hard to get even one, whether through the draft or free agency or trade.  And while a joy to watch, the best we did was Gerald Wallace, who would never be counted on to carry a team at the end of a game.

 

In Kemba, we finally got one.  Took some seasoning, but he's it.  To be competitive in this league, you need at least 2 stars.  It's been hard as hell, whether through draft or free agency or trade.  But being one away is better than being 2 away.  Derozan & Lowry are a 1-2 offensive punch.  Wall & Beal are a 1-2 offensive punch.  If we ever had that 2nd fiddle next to Kemba, I honestly feel we'd be right next to Toronto and Washington in the standings. 

 

And no, Big Al and Batum aren't the explosive backcourt mate this team has always needed.  Hell, with Lin, we got glimpses of how good the team could be with another guard that teams have to pay attention to.

 

The contract situation isn't good, but we can make some room.  To blow it up, we'd have to figure out how to get the prerequisite 2 stars to relevancy all over again.  High picks are such a crap shoot, you could end up with a Bennett or Fultz.  And even the glorious Lakers can't seem to attract stars anymore in free agency.  Kemba is only 27, we have good complimentary players throughout the roster, just keep plugging away to get Kemba a legitimate sidekick for the first time ever.  Starting over from scratch would have been the biggest waste of the last 5 years, and maybe next 5 years to hope to be mediocre again.  A big hell no for me.

It looks like 610 was way off and I am wrong.  I really hope Kemba retires with this team.  Just hope  no trade talk has legs . SORRY guys/
