    If my calculations are correct, if Julius Randle opts out, the Pelicans should have about 25 million dollars to throw at a FA this summer.

    Lets say they get Butler or Kemba.

    Holiday/Butler/Moore/Zion/AD?
    Kemba/Holiday/Moore/Zion/AD?

    or Tobias:

    Holiday/SG/Harris/Zion/AD

    Griff is a classy guy. Laughing in the Knicks face rather than over the phone

    I’ve thought about this too and how good of a team they could be right away but Klutch seems to have this man dead set on being in a big market.

    That’s a little unfair to Klutch. He said he is making the decisions and this is what he wants.

    Most of the NBA players never been outside the country. So adapting was understandably tough for some.

    Players who actually had talent like Shareef Abdur-Rahim, Michael Dickerson, and Mike Bibby enjoyed playing there.

    Management was unstable. if they stayed the course and did what Toronto did, they could've lasted.

    That's still a second round team at best going forward, i don't think AD wants to wait until Zion develops to start contending.

    2 days later and let's see if the national media continues to hyperventilate about this Zion being stuck in N.O. bit.... ESPN talent having melt downs, reporters saying he can always go back to Duke, yada yada.

    It's amazing how you don't see any of this in the NFL if a guy goes to the Saints.

    Memo to the NBA media (cause we're going on about year 20 of this): Not every player in the L can play on the Lakers and Knicks.

    AD needs to clear his head and dump Klutch.

    I think it depends on if AD stays and what else the pelicans do.

    Let's say they do nothing else. Yea I agree it's not a contending team.

    But let's say they make moves to get the pelicans spacing...then right away it's a squad even with a raw Zion. Then ad wouldn't have to wait.

    I don't see it either and I think the west gonna be a gauntlet next year. Top teams could fall back a little as well as the Mavs, Lakers, and Kings getting in the mix.

    LOL this is really the funniest ****
    people can't comprehend that AD wants to play with LeBron :lol:

    U think Klutch is aiming a gun at his head and telling him to do this ****?
    ANTHONY DAVIS IS HIS OWN MAN.

    If he wanted to stay, he can come out and say it.
    Klutch would still support him.

    Stop acting like Rich Paul is J Prince or something.
