Glad he's here. I'm looking forward to seeing him get some burn.
Hope is free.

the highlights look good. I am however, extremely apprehensive about a Willy/Frank duo up front. That's a layup line waiting to happen, and you know the coaching staff is going to try that out for too long.

Maybe Cody has knee soreness or re-aggravated his injury in his return and trading for Hernangomez helps preserve the playoff push to save Clifford’s job.

Also his Twitter profile has him in a #41 Hornets jersey in case anybody was wondering what number he'd wear.

SACRILEGE!! That number may not be retired, but it shouldn’t be easily handed over to anyone short of playing at GHOAT level or potential for same.
I continue to wait...and hope...for the return to Hornet's glory.

If he is really as funny as Guillermo, we could be onto something. Hornets.com and the in arena tv could do some good stuff! :lol:

He could try to interview Kemba only to have Kemba ignore him or try to get a word from Nic and Batum play the can't speak English card or sneak up on Frank listening to David Hasselhoff in the locker room pregame, endless possibilities! :lol:

Was going to go with Big Willy at first. I like growing up though because he's our new development project.

my first worry is that he wants minutes and I'm not confident Clifford will give him much.

I mean erm, he hasn't had a chance to train with the team yet, he did no preseason with Charlotte, you can't expect him to come in and play. . .

Big Willy would fit well with 2 Bol's and Baby Maker, the future is set!

Welcome Willy. You’ve acquired a team in a mess, but hope you can improve your weaknesses and add to your strengths.

What do ye folks say his his projected ceiling?

Cliff on Willy: "Right away there’s not a big role, but I think that what happens is if you like how a guy plays, and he fits with your style of play, that’s when you have an opportunity to bring him in, get him acclimated, and take it from there."

Dude has a good poker face if we're planning on moving Dwight.

Watching some highlights, I think I like this guy more than Frank.

Also is his name pronounced 'Billy'? I swear it sounds like the Knicks broadcasters are calling him Billy.

I read somewhere it's like a hard "V."
