i don't know about trading within the division, and Wells has been a headcase everywhere he's been, and it would be tough to see BJ go after I witnessed him knock down 5 three's tonight.Bonzi Wells and Mike James from Houston for Bobby Jackson, Halusku, Vin
Jackson was good tonight when CP got him wide open looks at the basket, particularly in the 2nd half. But let's not forget that he was a turnover machine in the 1st half when it was he and Pargo on the floor with CP getting some rest. He's been decent as a spot up shooter, but the games where he's taking people off the dribble and knocking down jumpers all over the place are few and very far between these days.I'm thinking it really won't Bjax had a great game tonight but usually he doesn't play that much, I think at this stage in his career Pargo is a little better at coming off the bench and running the team. I would think that the hornets got the better end of this deal, getting some depth at the point, and the shooting guard/small foward spot. Bjax locker room presence will be missed especially when playoff time rolls around but I think in the end this will work out better for the hornets than the rockets, and it makes the game against the rockets friday at the arena that much more intresting
I think it's a good move for the Hornets. You get more depth at the 2 spot, and Bonzi can play the 3 spot as well. Mike James is getting up there in age, but I think he can still provide valuable minutes at the point.Mike James has not played all year. He has 2 years of 6+ million on his contract that the Hornets will eat. They also will absorb some of Bjax's contract. Bonzi could be an asset, but he is streaky at best. I hope he was okay with the trade, because he has gone in "shutdown" mode before. When he choses to, he can score...
I really don't understand this trade, but it could work for both teams.
