Greivis Vasquez

Greivis Vasquez is averaging 14 points, 9.1 assists, and shooting 38% percent from three. I've heard some say he is just overachieving this year, but I disagree. He is 6'6 and has shown he can rack up assists the last couple years. Should he be in New Orleans' long term plans at PG? And where would you rank him in terms of point guards?

I think he is a good starter

I think he is a good starter in the league. He'll never be elite but he can be a very good passer, a solid rebounder, can get to the rim and is an underrated defender. With other positions in place with the Hornets he should certainly hold on to the starting spot unless they make a major upgrade.

I remember seeing him play in college and always wondered why people didn't see him as a potential lottery prospect. Some players can just ball and he's one of them.

If EG can stay healthy enough to commit long term with, the Hornets have a nice core for the future with Anthony Davis (who I think will be an All-star and All-Defensive player within 2 seasons), and Ryan Anderson. Vasquez should fit in nicely with that bunch.

In a league with so many good

In a league with so many good PGs I don't think you can be a really good team with Vasquez starting at point unless you have crazy talent like Miami. You can say he is a good starter in the league but no way is he a top 15 PG and I wouldn't even put him in the top 20. He is putting up good numbers on a bad team right now. There are a lot of guys who can do that. If the Hornets want to get over the hump in the west they should bring in a top 10 PG to match with the rest of their talent.

Couldn't you argue that

Couldn't you argue that putting up 9 assists on a bad team would be more difficult?

That's what I was thinking.

That's what I was thinking. He is on the Hornets, and Eric Gordon (best scorer) has been out most of the season. He makes some really sweet passes.

In the 04-05 season Dan

In the 04-05 season Dan Dickau was forced into starting PG duty for 42 games for the Hornets. He averaged only 5.2 assists that year but his average was much higher in the games he started...around 8 per game.

However, Vasquez is a better ball player.

I told yall he was gonna

I told yall he was gonna start this season. He reminds me of J Kidd without the speed, I think Rivers either has to be a Lou Williams/Crawford type, or he might ger traded if EJ and GV play well

Hornets

If they can keep this team together and get more experience playing together, along with a healthy Gordon and another one or two lotto picks the hornets could do well in the future.

The core of Vasquez, Gordon, Davis, Aminu, Lopez, Ryan Anderson, Rivers just need time to play together.

My question is who do they go for in the draft ? Do they go for a centre to replace Lopez and have him come off the bench ?

Kinda reminds me of Andre

Kinda reminds me of Andre Miller, nothing special about him, but doesn't make mistakes ,doesn't get under pressure, makes the right pass.

BUT I honestly can't see him being the starting PG on a playoff team
