    As a die hard/life long Kentucky fan, this is unbelievable news. The 2 of them have been playing together in summer pickup games in Lexington for years. They know each other very well. The Pelicans are certainly flipping the script and going in the opposite direction as the Warriors in building a team.

    No team in the league is equipped to handle them with everyone playing small ball now. If they get back anything decent for Jones, look out. This isn’t like anything the league has seen before.

    well this will be fun to watch, duncan and Robinson were nicknamed the twin towers…. will brow and boogie be nicknamed 911 or is that to much….. Not being rude but it would be kind of cool in memory of those who have lost.

    Chemistry..Chemistry..Chemistry…it all comes down to if they will have it or not.

    Welp… certainly not taking any rebounders against NOP now.

    how big is the drop in dfs production for boogie and brow? I think Jrue Holiday production will go up with people who can make shots

  • hpatel1089

    like Stephen A Smith said (and I never quote the buffoon) but this was a “heist”

    Will the Pelicans even make the playoffs after this trade? I don’t think the Nuggets are that much worse and they have a 2.5 game advantage. The Pelicans have literally no shooting around these 2 bigs.

    Are people really comparing Cousins to Duncan and Robinson LOL? Cousins is overrated he averages nearly 4 turnovers a game while shooting around 45%. Duncan and Robinson are sure fire hall of famers with multiple championships. Pelicans wont do anything more than getting a 8 seed and done after 1st round.

    They need to trade Jones for a 3 point shooting 2 guard. Gonna be plenty of open shots

    Holiday’s raw stats production will not go up (so bad for fantasy). He’s going to be hurt in almost every category because his usage% will go down. However, his efficiency stats should go up because he will have more open shots.

    I think there will be a drop for both, but AD should still get a lot of his steals/blocks which give him a solid amount of his FP points. His points and rebounding might get hit a bit, but I still see both of them around 9-10k price.

    KY fan here; wish the pelicans would’ve relocated to Louisville now
    KY fans everywhere are likely buying some Pelicans gear.

    Jones has been playing really well this year. I would hate to see him get traded but seems likely to happen now.

    Go trade for Knight

    I agree with Jones. Briscoe would be a nice draft pick for them next draft.

  • jpjk1lla

    So basically don’t touch Pelicans in dfs until their salaries drop at least 1k and load up on WCS and Collison until their prices go up 1k??

    Briscoe is a tough minded guard but can’t shoot- any other system aside from UK he wouldn’t be going pro, I don’t think.

    Would be good for the UK connection, I suppose.

    When is Bledsoe a FA?

    I was thinking more like 2nd round. Good defensive minded guard, with decent all around skills. I do think they need a 3 point shooting 2 guard now though

    Does anyone know if Cousins will be in the lineup Thursday? I would think there would be plenty of time off to pass physicals, file the paperwork, and get somewhat acclimated to the team. I think I have nearly 100% exposure to him on FD. Might have to pay up a bit for Jokic or drop down to WCS and upgrade other positions.

    SInce lineups have already been put out not sure his stats will count, least on DK

    how long before the Calipari to Pelicans rumors start?

    Already addressed it wasn’t happening

  • rebkell

    If Tyreke is genuinely ok physically, I could see him getting a ton of usage and putting up some of those 50 pops again, if he really is ok, I always thought the Tyreke and Jrue combo was a bad one, both need the ball in their hands to work and Tyreke doesn’t normally let go of it once he has it, I could see him being the Boogie replacement in Sac, who knows. I still think the Kings have a good coach, it would be totally crazy if after all this that the Kings make the Playoffs and the Pels miss out. LOL, I doubt that ever happens, but Joerger seems to make Chicken Salad out of Chicken Sh*t sometimes as long as he has something resembling a team.

  • TeamTwerk

    I know Matt Barnes got waived. Anyone know if Mclemore, Afflalo and Temple are still on the team?

    Surprised to see Barnes getting waived. He had a really hot stretch there recently. I’m sure someone will pick him up.

    Yeah, I got that email too. I meant would he actually suit up for the Pelicans.
