The Kings have officially waived J.J. Hickson.

Sacramento was unable to trade Hickson at the deadline.

Another young one bites the dust.

He's as good as Amir and Ed

Toby 03-19-2012 06:54 PM

He's an NC State guy, what'd you expect?
Hey, anyone can look good playing with LeBron James....A n y o n e

if I remember correctly, his best stretch was post-LeBron.

MrClutch 03-19-2012 07:25 PM

He was pretty good the year Lebron left. I guess he cant get playing time with Cousins there

VanCity 03-19-2012 07:44 PM

didnt they give up a future 1st and casspi for him? and is jason thompson really that much better than hickson?

hickson was averaging close to 14 and 9 in 28mins last season. he must have a locker room issue or something.

He and JT are the same guy. There are so many of these PF's in the league..... it's wild how stacked the league is in mediocre PF's

i would say most cavs fans would disagree with you. he was in the position as a no. 1 - 3 scoring option on the cavaliers (behind jamison and williams) after lebrons departure and he got his touches, but he was an absolute black hole on offense and so the cavs were happy to trade him for the steal that was omri casspi and the sacramento pick. statistically he had a fantastic year, but thats it lol

MrClutch 03-20-2012 12:04 AM

i wonder if he would fit the celtics since they lack size at the moment

agree with pf's, it seems to have become one of the easier positions to play in the league. we almost thought bosh was a max guy

I hear Casspi isn't doing so well either.

Just tryna figure out who was/is worth max money in their prime at the PF spot(from this generation).

KG
Duncan
Griffin
Love
Dirk


Amare if he was playing like beginning of last year(which isn't possbile anymore because of Melo)

Aldridge and Bosh won't cut it.

Dwight Howard and maybe Andrew Bynum only centers so far.

The raps should pick him up...
But he will probably end up on a contending team

A protected first that turns into a 2nd rounder in like 2017.

I think it is lottery protected this year and then becomes top 10 protected or something like that.

Someguy again 03-21-2012 11:09 PM

portland picked him up

Toby 03-21-2012 11:33 PM

He's not good enough for the Kings, but he'll look like an All-Star for the Blazers.
Yes, it's that bad over here.

He would look like an allstar on the Raps too I wonder why we didn't pick him up?

When he is on his game he is better than all our bigs accept AB.

He's a good fit for Portland... they needed young, healthy bigs badly. Unfortunately for us, guys like Hickson can be had for nothing....

Toby 03-24-2012 04:50 AM

told you
Hickson's 1st Blazer game:
22 minutes, 6-9 shooting, 14 points, 2reb, 2ast, 1 stl, and a pair of hacks.
