Hornets Get Head

Luther Head, that is: “The New Orleans Hornets have reached an agreement on a two-year contract with veteran guard Luther Head. The Hornets are not announcing the deal yet because Head still must pass his physical, but Head’s agent, Mark Bartelstein, told The Associated Press on Saturday that the deal paying Head about $2.5 million over two years is done. Bartelstein says the second year of the contract is a player’s option, and that the Hornets pursued Head because they wanted a veteran who can play both guard spots.”

    “Hornets Get Head”

    I see what you did there…

  • http://www.triplejunearthed.com/dacre Dacre

    A veteran…. thats a very loose rendition of the term.

  • http://www.threadsandkicks.com.au Eduardo

    Hahaha what a News Line. This is just as Classic as Your “Wolves might get Gay/Love” story.

  • george w. buckets

    best headline of the free agent period.

  • rich

    umm they got another small guard?

  • http://thekobebeef.wordpress.com LDR4

    Solid “head”line. Head can drain 3s like nobodys business. Good signing. He’ll be a good go to guy when CP3 starts angling for a trade to Miami.

  • pennydunk_1

    I can imagine hornets getting head

  • Groves

    So getting head will provide the relief that the hornets backcourt needs and will allow collison to be released as a shooter

  • millertime21

    lol @eduardo if the wolves signed gey they could have had (rudy, kevin, ramon) gay love sessions lol


    The Hornets can all breath a sigh of relief, after getting Head.

    That’s almost as embarrassing as this news headline:

  • unrel

    and i was hoping that Head would be involved with Gay/Love in Minny

  • vanillagorrila

    Great headline, kinda pointless update otherwise lol. Plz N.O. ship one of ur pgs, get some help. Maybe a wing with some length, defensive skill and potential.

  • Jake

    best headline ever. I don’t know why they got another guard though unless they are thinking of shipping CP3 or DC.

  • http://www.michaelcho.com M Cho

    I immediately pictured the Honeybees when I read this “head”line.

  • duane moore

    hahahahahaha, funniest headline I’ve seen in a long time, props

  • JTaylor21

    Good one Juaki. bud light joke of the day

    Hornets get head and they had to pay for it?!

  • TADOne

    Did Chris Paul assist?

  • Will

    hahahaha so juvenile but hilarious nonetheless. Def better than the Gay/Love.

  • anony mous

    This is why I love slam. Keep on keeping it realll

  • gpaul

    “Hornets get Head for 2.5 million dollars”. Somebody got bamboozled in both senses of the phrase, lol.

    lol @ the headline but in all serious who remembers how raw that 05 Illinois squad with Dee Brown, Deron Williams, and Luther Head was. Always felt Head would prove to be a better NBA player than he’s turned out to be…still young. I remember that buttery jumper he had…I think he’s a good fit with the Hornets, who seem to be moving suspiciously quietly through this off-season….

  • http://thetroyblog.com Teddy-the-Bear

    Agreed, Rick. I think Head can still improve though, he was nice for the Rockets and he was trapped in Indiana, but now he has a good opportunity to prove himself in New Orleans. I always thought Dee Brown would be really good in the NBA, people always talked about his size but barring injuries he could have been a long-time player in this league.

  • http://slamonline.com The Black Rick Kamla

    @Teddy awwwwww man Dee Brown was my favorite. So much talent…its funny I thought more highly of both Dee and Luther than Deron at the time, funny how things work out some time.
