Hornets Ink Joe Alexander, Pops Mensah-Bonsu

New Orleans added two guys who can leap to their roster, reports the Times-Picayune: “The New Orleans Hornets continued adding to their roster Monday, coming to an agreement with small forward Joe Alexander, the eighth overall choice in the 2008 NBA draft. New Orleans is also expected to have small forward Pops Mensah-Bonsu on the training camp roster as well, team sources confirmed Monday evening.”

    speaking of the hornets, anyone think chris paul is overrated?

  • AT33

    I’m happy for Joe, he will be great in a couple years! The guy is a late bloomer he will do fine.

    Good looks for pops

  • LeoneL

    I do hope you’re right.

    Had completely forgotten bout Joe. How come hes out of Milwaukee already, did he only sign a 2 year rookie contract?

    POPS is back!
    And I remember Joe used to be compared to Shawn Marion. If he is a later bloomer this is his time to shine.

    Joe got by in College on Athleticism… “If” he learns “THE GAME”… He’ll be fine… If?!?!?

    Joe didn’t have his option picked up by either milwaukie or Chicago. Yes Chicago he was part of that trade. Best Chinese player ever!

    abaci, you are all by yourself buddy. You should probably watch this sport more often

    Great to see a Brit back in the league

    when chris paul told the hornets they needed to find him some talent to play with, i’m not sure this is what he had in mind.

    I been wondering what was gonna happen to Joe. I knew the Bulls wouldn’t re-sign him.

  • dma

    You’d think joe alexander would be the british one and pops mensah-bonsu would be the chinese one.

    Pops was banging the boards like a beast during the GB games in August. He is hungry and wants to prove a point

    i always sign Pops when I play nba2k. For some reason, i beast in the post with him

    @abaci leave CP out of this conversation, off IQ alone he can dominate or put it like this even if he plays half a season or he still top ten player in the league, top point gaurd in the World! When he was making po runs he put his team on his back! If overrated is in the Convo LBJ or CB4 should be in the air. It’s starting to look better in the NO roster wise so let’s see if you feel the same about CP in 2 make it 3 months? He had a weak ass team and took them deep off in the po’s by his damn self!

    I’ve always been amazed that Pops has had trouble staying on an NBA roster. The man is just non-stop energy – rebounds, blocks, loose balls. At worst, he’s a great practice player. It’s beyond me why teams are willing to pay other role players big money while there are plenty good role players – that are HUNGRY for the opportunity – in the D-Leagues and overseas.

    So…this was to make Chris Pual feel better?

    Still funny how joe thought he could argue against skiles and win. What a dummy.
