Why do the Hornets do the deal?
1) Paul himself will not anchor this team to the playoffs and there's nobody you can bring in relevent enough to help do so. Especially with the cap space.
2) This would be the best reasonable package you can get and the Warriors are "willing to do anything and everything" to revive hoops here in the Bay Area.
3) The players:
Monta Ellis - One the best, if not the best, pure penetrator's in the NBA. Can get to the basket at will and is only 24. Will be a perennial All-Star.
Anthony Randolph - I'm sure you've seen him play at LSU. The kid's only 20 YEARS OLD and LOADED with potential. He showed that at the end of last year and went on to have an EXPLOSIVE Summer League. Not having the season I hoped thus far, but you can blame that on his playing time and Nellie and Smart's hatred for the poor kid.
Andris Biedrins - Will give you a double double every single night. One of the best rebounders in the league. One of the best attitudes in the NBA. Only 23 years old with 6 years of NBA experience.
1) What do Hornet fans think?
2) If this is not enough, what else would you want?
