The Charlotte Bobcats' ongoing attempts to acquire a true big man to partner Emeka Okafor have led them to propose the return of Gerald Wallace to the Sacramento Kings, according to NBA front-office sources.
The Bobcats, sources said, want Brad Miller in return. But the Kings, I'm told, are highly unlikely to bite. They've had some interest in recent years in reacquiring Wallace -- who has blossomed into a versatile and productive swingman at both ends since he was claimed by Charlotte in the 2004 expansion draft -- but they also have a surplus of wing players at present ... too many to take on the four years and nearly $40 million left on Wallace's contract after this season.


I'm glad it says they are unlikely to take it, I don't think Miller is the answer to any of our problems. I guess that would mean Diaw at the 3, which I'm sure he is capable of doing, but we need to wait and see how we look with our current lineup. Diaw is making everyone better at the 4 spot, and Oak is playing tough at center.

If this trade went through, I would stop following the Bobcats. I've supported them from day one, but I wouldn't stand for such a horrible deal. Miller is on the downside of his career. GDub is worth WAY more than Brad Miller. GDub is on the verge of stardom in the right market, while Miller is just a serviceable role player... The trade proposal better have been based on getting a couple 1st rounders in return as well.

After seeing what Okafor and Diaw are doing lately I'd like to see how they do for a few times together, it takes some time.

However we need to find someway of dumping Nazr.
