Thread: How do we keep Lance?

  1. #1

    Default How do we keep Lance?

    In the event Lance continues to improve, what are some realistic trade scenarios we could pull to keep him?

    George Hill has to go. That's really the best way to clear room. That and unload Copeland.

    Lakers are gonna have a ton of money free this summer. Wonder if they'll take a run at Lance, he would be a nice fit with Dantoni.

    Not saying we have to trade Hill now. We can wait until the offseason.

    Make no mistake though, that is the only way we are keeping Stephenson.

    Any team out there that would realistically take Hill's contract?

    I swear we better not lose Lance because we idiotically made the trade for Hill and then proceeded to overpay him to play the position with the most abundant talent in the league.

    I think Lance is one of our 3 best players, right behind Paul and Roy. So, yes, it's important to hang onto him. I am certain that George Hill, Granger and Scola are traded before Lance. The good news is that we shouldn't have to pick between Lance and West. We might as well start working on Paul and Roy's statues because they will be here forever.

    In all fairness, when we resigned Hill, no one knew PG, let alone Lance would develop as they have...

    Lance is not going anywhere I expect Larry to pay the guy his money, if he is must improved he is probably going to get JR Smith type of money(6mil a year).

    We keep him by going over the lux tax. Otherwise, waive goodbye.

    Double that and you may be in the ballpark.

    Roy Hibbert got offered $14.5 million/year by the Blazers after one good season.

    Unless we go over the tax Bird is going to have to get rid of George Hill or scrap the entire bench in order to keep Lance.

    Financially we can't afford him unless we make a move.

    No way.

    Lance is looking at around 10 mil the way he is playing.

    Look at how other SGs around the league are paid.

    Not sure how you can say we idiotically made this trade, given the success that we have had since... Especially if we are to end up champions, there is no way you can say it was an idiotic trade... The extension, sure, you could make the case it was idiotic, but it is debatable...

    If we trade GH3, then do we give the reins to Lance and say lead us to the promised land?? If not, then who do we get to run the point/ ball handeling respondsibilites...

    Roy Hibbert is also seven feet plus.

    I've always thought Lance is gonna make significantly more than the mid level, but 12 million is pushing it.

    We pay the man. Larry won't let his guy leave. Either Herb will have to open the book or else Cope will be traded.

    What can we give Lance, around 9 million? I can't imagine a team is going to give him that much more. Just unload Copeland somehow (Bird did it with Green), and its even easier
