Artest & The Birdman

The NBA trade deadline is February 22nd.

Will the Hornets make a move? Yes!

Will that move be a blockbuster? Probably not.
But if I were Hornets General Manager I’d make a couple moves that would make the team better and steal some headlines.
I’d bring back Chris Andersen. Andersen will be back in the NBA after a 2 year suspension for violating the league’s substance abuse policy. His energy off the bench will be uplifting. PLus, he’s a fan favorite and may put some more people in the seats.

Second, I’d trade for Sacramento Kings forward Ron Artest. The Kings are looking to dump Artest and Bibby and rebuild around their young players. Send Julian Wright, Hilton Armstrong and this year’s #1 pick to Sacramento for Artest.
Artest is currently injured but should be healthy in a few weeks.
He could share minutes with fragile Peja Stojakovic at small forward.

Artest is a risk but he’s a veteran who can score and defend and would make the Hornets better.
Plus, like Andersen, Artest is a guy who could put butts in seats!

  1. SORRY FLECTH BUT CAN’T AGREE WITH YOU. NOT ONLY DOES ARTEST GET HURT TOO MUCH BUT HIS CHARACTER IS TOO QUESTIONABLE. I ALSO WOULDN’T WANT TO GIVE UP TOO YOUNG PLAYERS LIKE WRIGHT AND ARMSTRONG. TEAM CHEMISTRY IS GOOD NOW AND I WOULDN’T WANT TO GAMBLE BRINGING ARTEST IN. TOO RISKY. WE NEED HELP BUT NOT THAT KIND OF HELP. GLAD YOUR NOT MY GM!

  2. I agree: The Hornets should bring back the Birdman!
