The question is....would the Lakers take the risk on EG if it meant getting rid of Pau and getting that stretch 4 in the process? EG just signed a max deal....
you think NOH would trade us EG in addition to Anderson for Pau?
, as for your 2nd part, mgmt. would jiz all over themselves if NOH offered EG/Anderson
Well dude, EG has really done NOTHING for the Hornets so far, and he has chronic knees, meaning BOTH knees are bad. He has barely played for them, and they just threw him max money...Pau's contract is much shorter than both Anderson and EG...they would still have Anthony Davis, Austin Rivers and Aminu as their young core...I mean I think its probably more of a risk for the Lakers to take on that kind of money for a player who has really not proven that he can stay on the court for the past 2 yrs or so....for the Hornets, they bring in Pau, he can really help Anthony Davis develop, and they are good fits next to each other since they both can hit mid range (we all know Pau is going to magically find his game when he goes somewhere else).
I think of it this way...Hornets are gonna say if we're going to give up someone like Ryan Anderson, then we better unload any other risky contracts that we have in this deal. EG does have a TON of upside but he comes with a lot of risk esp with that new MAX deal he just inked.
