Mailbag Answers: Avery Bradley edition

With a side order of Marcus Smart A lot of questions in the mailbag centered around our big free agent of the summer Avery Bradley.  So I figured I'd spend some time answering the questions about him.  As you'll see, the signing of Lance Stephenson in Charlotte and the team's drafting of Marcus Smart also factor a great deal into people's questions. bmac934 How do you honestly feel about the Avery Bradley signing when we could have potential given Lance Stephenson only $1 million more per season?

No Stephenson. No Turner. Next Man Up.

With the knowledge that Danny Granger, Lance Stephenson, and even Evan Turner are not going to walk through that door for the Blue-and-Gold, the Pacers must rely on a familiar formula to fill the obvious void on the wing. After the Pacers elected not to extend him an $8.7 million qualifying offer, Evan Turner's decision to leave Indiana in search of "greener" pastures  with the Boston Celtics was probably one of the more predictable moves of the summer. Averaging 17.4 points and 6.0 rebounds per game in Philadelphia as a starter, the former Ohio State standout's numbers (7.1 points and 3.2...

Lance Stephenson's signing has helped further the Hornets' prominent upswing, and has writers and analysts very positive about their chances this season. Zach Lowe of Grantland and formerly of Sports Illustrated: This could really be a coup for Charlotte. The team could have north of $12 million in cap space again next summer should it renounce Henderson's rights (assuming he opts out), and it's nabbed one of the best free agents on the market - in terms of basketball talent, anyway - at a discount. The Hornets are a legitimately dangerous playoff team now. The East is going to be...

Lance Stephenson's past raises ethical concerns

Lance Stephenson's past is impossible to ignore, but the reconciling of history, youth and our fandom is a difficult intersection we must navigate. By Ben Swanson and Chris BarnewallFrom purely a basketball standpoint, the Charlotte Hornets signing Lance Stephenson looks like a good decision. He's a young player, an improvement at the shooting guard position, is on a favorable contract and it looks like he can improve even more and possibly become an All-Star.
