Hornets and Pacers trade idea
Danny Granger and DJ Augustin for Greivis Vasquez, Al-Farouq Aminu, and a 2nd round pick
PG: Greivis Vasquez/ George Hill
SG: Lance Stephenson/ Gerald Green
SF: Paul George/ Al-Faroup Aminu
PF: David West/ Tyler Hansbrought
C: Roy Hibbert/ Ian Mahinmi
PG: Austin Rivers/ DJ Augustin
SG: Eric Gordon/ Roger Mason
SF: Danny Granger/ Xavier Henry
PF: Anthony Davis/ Ryan Anderson
C: Robin Lopez/ Jason Smith
The Hornets can draft another PG if Austin Rivers and Eric Gordon can't workout
Austin Rivers is not a point guard. Sorry to be that guy.
As you said Rivers isn't a point guard whatsoever. Rivers seems like he should've stayed in college because he's been struggling in embarrassing fashion.
I don't know, Granger coming off an injury and the way Vasquez has been balling it seems improbable. Plus I don't think Rivers is ready to man the point yet.
The thought of Austin Rivers playing point guard is giving me nightmares.
What PG in this draft would you take that would be doing what Vazquez is doing?
Hornets wouldnt want danny granger, he is a ball stopper on offense and a below par defender, they already have Eric gordon as a primary scoring option, and granger shoots sub 45% the past 2-3 seasons, which isnt good enough to be a complimentary piece. He requires a large volume of shots to be effective, they dont require that, Aminu fits the system as it is, he can play d and run out on the breaks, while he isnt a top flight small foward, he fits the bill better then granger as the hornets roster stand now
Trade for the sake of making a trade....Vasquez is having a great year....Rivers is shooting below 40% and definitely should have stayed in school except for reading his press clippings
The Hornets have no need for Grainger as they have a few SF options and the Pacers taking Aminu is pointless if he is stuck behind Paul George.
When i looked at the thread title. I set the over/under for -5 points and took the under. I win.
