Warriors to get Jarrett Jack & Hornets only have to take back draft rights to Edin Bavcic (originally Philly-bound) to complete the trade


I don't even know who the h*ll this is. Another unibrow?

Who do we get? I wasn't really a Jarret Jack fan, but I was hoping he would remain with the Hornets through this season as a steady consistent more veteran option.

The Hornets appear to have all intentions of starting Rivers at PG and Davis at C right off the bat, learning curve aside. Can't say I blame them.

This is puzzling. Jack has a good deal of value. You might not want him to be your starter, but he's one heck of a 2nd string point guard.

Rivers has close to zero ability as a point guard by the way. None whatsoever.

Wow we are definitely trying to intimidate opponents with our brows of fury.

Hornets would get rights to Edin Bavcic, Euro prospect drafted by Warriors and initially set to go to Philly. NO clears Jack's $5.4M off cap

NO wants to rebrand their team Unibrows. Or add one to Hornet logo.

Is there a starting caliber point guard left that the Hornets can afford? I don't see who you get that is better than Jack, certainly not in the short term. Vasquez is a 2nd stringer too.

Jack didn't really have to be traded right now because he was already an expiring so they probably are going to use this trade to get something NOW. Perhaps?

Raymond Felton is the only thing that makes sense, although it only makes sense if it's a reasonable deal and he has not been camping out at Krispy Kreme the entire off season.

Don't tell him what a beignet is if he signs.

He stunk it up last year, but he's capable of being a decent point guard. It doesn't make a lot of sense, but Felton is the only quote-unquote starter left on the board. Seems like a puzzling move if that is what it is, because Jack was significantly better last year and hasn't been much worse over their careers.

I suppose you have to see how the off-season shakes out before judging a cap-clearing move like this. Theoretically, I would not be a fan of playing both rookies out of position right off the bat.


EDIT: Great move by the Warriors, though. They desperately needed Curry insurance if they're trying to make the playoffs next year, and Jack's a very affordable, competent option.

Hornets may be going after Mahinmi. I don't have sources or anything. :laugh: Just something I keep seeing around. I'll wait to see what happens.
