[i]If I am cho I keep the following:[/i]

[b]Kemba[/b] - due to make roughly 2.6 mil next year with a two year team option the following offseason and a qualifying option for 2015.
[b]Hendo[/b] - has a 4.2 mil one year offer sheet on the table this offseason.
[b]Bismack [/b]- due to make roughly 3 mil next year with a two year team option the following offseason and a qualifying option for 2015.
[b]Derrick (bench) [/b]- UFA
[b]Mullens (bench) - [/b]2.2 club option for the upcoming season and a qualifying offer the following year of a little over 3 mi.
[b]DJ White[/b] [b](bench)[/b] - 1 yr. 3 mil remaining
[b]Wiliams[/b] [b](bench)[/b] - 1 yr. 2.5 mil remaining
[b]Thomas (bench) [/b]- 3 yr. 26 mil remaining (roughly). Considering he is pretty much untradable due to his contract I think you keep him coming off the bench. He has shown flashes of his old self rarely..but more so towards the end of the season.

[i]Contract Obligations[/i]:

[b]Carroll[/b] - is in the last year of his deal..making 3.5ish..might be attractive to a team for his expiring...if not just keep him inactive.
[b]Diop[/b] - is owed 7.3 next year..but is also in the last year of his deal..might be a nice expiring for a team. if not just keep him inactive.
[b]Maggette[/b] - is owed 10.9 and is also going to be in the last year of his deal...he might be more likely to be delt..if healthy..due to his expiring. If not..just let him expire..freeing up even MORE capspace.

[i]Cut/Release Candidates[/i]

[b]Eduardo[/b] - is a UFA..so he isn't coming back (if i am GM).
[b]Augustin[/b] - did not sign his offer sheet..so if he isn't delt on draft day..he is probably walking for nothing.
[b]Higgins[/b] - is gone (if i am GM).
[b]Moon[/b] - is gone (if I am GM)

I really see the 'Cats as a good bench squad...especially with Mullens, Brown, Wiliams, and White. Kemba, Hendo, and Biz are probably going to start along with Maggette. Add a rookie to the bench and hopefully Davis..this is team is still staring at a top five pick next year. Hopefully that will be Shabazz Muhammad. Just my two cents.

Augustin will still be a RFA so we can match whatever offer he gets from another team if we want to. Other than that I'm pretty much with you.

One thing we need to keep in mind is we still have the amnesty clause we can use. I feel like we are another year away from going after some big free agents, so I don't think we will use it. Still Thomas would probably be my choice if we did. Carroll, DIop and Maggette will all be off the books after next year. If we amnesty Thomas we would have LOADS of cap space.

If anything, the 'Cats will be in GREAT shape a year from in terms of cap space and young talent.

I agree that Thomas may be an amnesty candidate...especially with how well Mullens and White seem to be playing off the bench. A crowded front line with the addition of Davis (hopefully) will further justify that case.

You know it will be these same players even if we change our nickname right? Maybe you should just stick to the rebrand thread until your allegiance suddenly kicks in

If there were not contracts and obligations..I would only want to keep a handful of guys:

Kemba, Henderson, Bismack, Mullens, Augustin, Williams, White, and maybe Derrick Brown.

Most of them would be decent role players/bench guys and are young enough with enough potential to be considered assets and trade peices. There maybe two or three decent starters in the group one day..Henderson/Kemba/Biz. Add a draft pick this year and two next year...things would be looking up.

the only current player on the bobcats who is a borderline starter for most NBA teams is Gerald Henderson.

More or less..Biz and Kemba have [u][i][b]potentia[/b][/i][/u]l to be starters two or three years from now. Henderson I could see being a decent third option.

To the OP I'd keep Walker, Henderson, Mullens, Brown, White and Biyombo. Perhaps Najera or Williams.

It will be interesting to see what kind of offers Augustine will get. If he gets a big deal no doubt the Bobcats wont match, but he hasnt impressed at all this year. I doubt he gets more than the mid level

They just started taking the right steps in the rebuild process last year getting rid of Wallace and Jackson. You have to get rid of contracts to rebuild.

I agree. I wish they could get rid of every player on the team. I'm not kidding

If things go our way and we get Anthony Davis..

Kemba Walker
Gerald Henderson
Corey Maggette
Anthony Davis
Bismack Biyombo

bench - Reggie Williams, Derrick Brown, DJ White, Byron Mullens, (2nd rd pick), (FA), (FA)

In 2013 draft and FA, we can work on a SG/SF stud and see what happens.

With the huge cap space this team is going to have after next season...I'm sure Cho is going to fill whatever hole..not filled through the draft by then, through free agency.

We are the laughing stock of the league right now and deservedly so, but this experience for Kemba and Biyombo, combined with a top 4 pick for the next 2 seasons most likely and a ton of cap space...we are going to be fine.

Cho knows what hes doing.

I was looking at stats on draft lottery and previous results. Since they updated to weighted lottery in 1990:

Worst team has drawn the #1 pick only once.
2nd worst got #1 pick 4 times
3rd worst got #1 pick 4 times also.
4th worst hasn't gotten it in weighted lottery
5th worst got #1 pick 5 times
6th worst got #1 pick 2 times
7th, 8th, 9th, and 11th worst all got #1 pick once.
7th worst got #1 pick

We aren't getting the #1
We aren't getting Anthony Davis
We aren't going to sign anyone who will help

Bobs Cats will suck once again. Man, please move this disgrace of a franchise out of here. I wanna puke just hearing that terrible name.
