Benson did make Loomis the GM for the Pelicans as well. Yeah, he isn't going anywhere.

1 year after Loomis became the GM, Loomis served as a groomsman in Benson's wedding. There's no chance he's going anywhere.

The more I think about, the more I think Loomis is a bigger problem than Payton. He's either a bad personnel guy or he's not a personnel guy at all. Either is not acceptable for a GM.

He's an accountant. Just makes the numbers work...

His method of doing that has wrecked this team. So like Bonchie said, he is either a bad personnel guy, not a personnel guy and he cant manage the cap either. Weve had 60+ million in dead money thanks to his 'cap management' the last 2 years.

No matter what you think about Loomis, no one can deny it's ludicrous to have one man serving as GM for two pro sports teams, it's too much for one man.

He has never been a personnel guy. That has not changed.

Clearly the front office has struck out swinging on some players but I still think if you go through most of the deals we complain about now, there were strong arguments in favor of those deals at the time. And for a lot of years, Loomis was highly regarded by much of the fanbase.

Unfortunately, the bad deals have resulted in the team having to operate from an ongoing bad position on some other decisions.

The biggest fault seems to be no crystal ball view that Byrd, Spiller, Lewis, and Galette weren't going to work out here vs compensation given. And now this season, we can't seem to avoid bad fortune.

Interesting point. Is there any correlation between Saints success timeline and Loomis taking over the Pelicans?

Been pondering the same thing.

I think it's actually to the year that we started to stink when he was given that job.

I'm not sure he's actually the GM of the Pelicans though. I thought it was clarified that he's just a more overseer role and not the direct day to day management like a normal GM.
