I think Hornets fans are pretty happy paying Hayward now that they've started their season 2 and 4...

He's putting up marginally better numbers than last season in an expanded role so i guess he got everything he wanted.

Happy for him.

Lol at your veiled insults. You are not fooling anyone. Hayward is much more than a good stats on a bad team guy. He was an all-star in a loaded western conference playing for a playoff team.he put up awesome numbers against the eventual champs GSW.

Jamal magloire was an allstar to once.

Jamal magloire never averaged more than 14 pts a game in a season over his entire career. His all-star season was in a weak eastern conference that was thin on talented bigs. Btw, wth happened to your pritchard predictions in november?

it just made more sense to invest in Brown over the long haul given his age .

I wish he stayed for the sake of trying to get a ring and all the intangibles that so few players hold dear to anymore.

Charlotte is always stuck on the treadmill , look at Kemba all thise wasted years beating himself up and no playoffs . Nobody is going to go there just to be with Hayward , he is on the backside of his career ,now .  I would have wanted to finish up my career on a title seeking contender .  SMH ...each to his own.

Gordy s happy and mega rich ...he got all he wanted .

Good luck my friend.

Hornets look like a team that could legitimately compete for the 8 seed in the East.

Heat and Nets will obviously overtake them later in the season, but I imagine teams like the Knicks,  Cavaliers and maybe Magic also fall a bit going forward in the standings.

I'd say the Hayward move was good for both sides. Hayward gets a bit of a fresh start elsewhere as a #1 option where he's thriving and helping that team get to 5-5 (w/a 3-game W streak). Meanwhile Tatum and especially Jaylen have increased roles and are continuing to improve. If Hayward's still here idk if Jaylen pops off like he has over the last 2-3 weeks.

Hayward went to Charlotte to be “the guy” only for Terry Rozier to actually be the best player on the team lol. Not gonna lie, Terry looks great.l so far this year. He’s putting up great numbers. Anyone ever wonder how the Cs would be if they just kept Rozier and built around Tatum/Brown/Rozier/Smart?

Magloire was still an allstar. Using allstar as a barometer for valuatuon of a player is useless.

I didnt make alot of pritchard predictions, imo, but I hated the pick amd have more than once admitted I was completely wrong on my take.

So not sure why you are bringing that up to try and make a case about Hayward.

In hindsight I'd rather have Rozier at half the price of what Walker is costing.

But we were hoping that Irving would resign and basically took it for granted that Rozier would leave for a franchise to become a starting point guard instead of staying as a back-up in Boston. I think everyone was okay with that at the time.

I know it would have brought the counting stats down for all 3 wings but with Hayward along with Brown and Tatum last year we had a pretty elite offense when they all played together, and Hayward is such a good passer and secondary playmaker it helps makes it work.  It does make things a little more difficult with ball distribution when you add Walker to the mix, but would rather have Hayward than not and you have insurance if 1 of the 4 is hurt or off his game.  But he decided to follow the most money, and can’t blame Ainge for not matching that gigantic contract he got given his injuries in recent years.
