Just heard on WNZ that we traded them for Dampier, Najera and Carroll. Can anyone confirm? Yahoo is reporting this trade.

Dampier would mean cap room now since we can cut him and his unguaranteed contract. Carroll is a solid back-up and Najera is pretty much trash. As a general rule, I don't pay attention to radio reports, but this would be somewhat of an odd move if we do it.

If it is true though, the Bobcats have the most desirable expiring contract in the NBA in Dampier. Something is up.

13 million to play with, one guy who'll rarely see the court, and another who'll never see the court. This will be an interesting next few days/weeks.

We're not waiving Dampier. That'd leave us with money to play with, but no starters at PG or C available in free agency. Dampier is either going to stay in Charlotte (highly unlikely) or he's getting traded.

Unless we're taking back a large salary in a trade. In that case, we could waive Dampier and we'd be able to take back however much salary we wanted because we'd be under the cap. MJ and company are working hard at something.

Maybe we are, maybe we aren't.... that's what the source says.... I doubt you know for a fact that we won't waive Dampier, unless you work in the FO and are making the calls.

Maybe we are really pushing for A.J since he was in talks with the Mavs

[B]The Bobcats have traded big men Tyson Chandler and Alex Ajinca to the Mavericks, in exchange for Erick Dampier, Matt Carroll and Eduardo Najera.[/B]

The deal should be finalized soon, so Michael Jordan won't have an opportunity to change his mind. We're assuming that Chandler, in the final year of his contract, will fill a backup PF/C role for the Mavs.

[B]Veteran center Erick Dampier was traded from the Mavericks to the Bobcats on Tuesday, though he may never play a game for Charlotte.[/B]

Dampier was highly coveted this summer not because of his skills, but because his $13 million contract is fully unguaranteed. The Bobcats will surely waive him, allowing him to seek employment as an unrestricted free agent.

Good trade in my opinion we can do a lot know with either keeping Dampier or letting him go either way it will be fun.

Well I did add to my post after that, but logically it doesn't make any sense. Why swap Chandler for Dampier when they're essentially the same player with the same contract? The only edge Dampier has is that his contract isn't guaranteed, which means we must be getting ready to trade him, or cut him so we can take back a big salary. Why would we cut him if something else wasn't in the works? We wouldn't, because that would leave us with a lack of big men, the supposed reason why we pulled out of the trade with Toronto.

So who do you think we are freeing up all of this money for? Because this trade helps us in no way at all imo.

I was thinking Luke Ridnour as a free agent possibility or use Dampier as trade bait for a better point guard than Calderon. A lot of teams were offering quite a bit for Dampier. The Mavs rejected a trade that would have sent Al Jefferson to Dallas for Dampier, but they accepted a trade that sent Tyson Chandler and Ajinca to Dallas for Dampier, Carroll, and Najera. So don't worry the Bobcats aren't done yet.

Yup, this is just a stepping-stone trade... that Dampier contract is highly coveted, bigger moves coming.

If bigger moves don't come this is worse than when he drafted kwame brown. Especially considering jose calderon is way better than any of those 3 players we just brought in.

They supposedly got this pushed through the league offices exceptionally quickly too. MJ must have his eye on somebody that is wanted by someone else.

If Dampier is moved for a PG, that still leave a huge hole in the middle for the Cats.

Look for a possible deal with the T-Wolves and their bevy of point guards.

The big news is the return of Matt Carroll, take that Heat!!
