Randle couldn't even sign a two year deal with the Lakers. He isn't a second rounder pick that was a RFA. He was a first round pick coming off his rookie contract.

This team by March will look different.

Don't care what Vegas thinks. I believe both Ingram and Kuz will have break out years like Tatum and Brown for the C's. Everyone is talking about how special those players are...same will be said about Ingram and Kuz. The talk of "who's going to play with LeBron?" is going to sound foolish.


Don't forget about Hart


I'm high on Hart as well....I just think Ingram and Kuz are going to be really special this year...to the point where we'll be incredibly happy neither one was traded for Kawhi.

Wait a minutes...you're giving up on the Lakers because they didn't resign Julius Randle? Come on man...


I’m giving up on the idea that other moves will be made. This is likely our team for the season. Randle will be fine, he went to a top 3-4 West team and can get paid next offseason. We need to forget about him and think about what Stephenson, Rondo and McGee can give us.


You really project the Pels as a top 3-4 West team? You might be more bullish on them than even the biggest NO homers. They effectively replaced Rondo and Cousins with Payton and Randle. Seems lateral at best even with Boogie’s injury.

I would pretty confidently put them behind Warriors, Rockets, Lakers, Jazz and Thunder.

VLF, you must be elated that Randle is now on the Pelicans and you that can continue rooting for him.

Didn’t you say though that the Pelicans were a lock to sign Boogie back again?


I guess you missed the news that Cousins tore his Achilles.


So who reneged, you or them?

Sheridan has mentioned this a few times.

Imo Magic and Lebron’s plan for this season is to be patient and be a different looking team with playoff damage potential after the trade deadline.

Lance and Rondo Make 13.5 together. (Though I think we keep Rondo). I think Ariza and Tyson chandler are perfect February buyout candidates and also LA guys (would love for Ariza to come back home).

The only signing I potentially see is if Bron wants Melo....which I doubt and he'll probably end up in Houston...otherwise I see possibly Frye resigning as an experienced stretch 5 or 4 and insurance policy in case Wagner is not ready or someone goes down.

Now that Svi signed can we still open up enough space to trade BI to SA if we waive Deng?

Why do you guys still take VLF seriously? The dude is a disguised troll and has been for over a decade. He was supposed to leave LG and become a Clippers fan after Jim Buss and Mitch were fired (something he said was impossible). He's also been proven wrong and shown to contradict himself at least 1000 times. He gets an old man pass from the mods for some reason.

I have been thinking about this. I am not too sure if the Pelicans will break up ther Mirotic-Davis starting lineup. It worked extremely well for them during the playoffs last season. Mirotic's ability to stretch the floor opened the game for Davis and allowed for explosive scoring outputs. If Randle brings his benched-poutyface act to the Pelicans, things can get dicey for him money-wise next offseason.

our Center Depth is not great but its okay

I think Zu can and should be our starting center

he did well in games 2nd half of the season where he got some minutes

14 and 9 in 19 minutes against Minnesota where he played again Giorgi Jeng and KAT ...> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y8BhVjH8erw

If the warriors started Zaza at one point, then we can start Zubac and give him 22-27 minutes a game and Mcgee 12-17 minutes with Wagner (if not in G league) about 8-10 minutes;

while running smaller line ups with Lebron, Ingram, Kuz as center
