lets look at our roster and see what could be moved.....

DJ - has value

diaw- we all hate him, but it only takes 1 team to like him

tyson- last yr contract 11 million.....

nazr- believe it is also his last yr aroun 7million i believe

those are the only trade pieces we really have

PG (maybe felton, i wouldnt pay him 9 mill like he wants), ????

SG- jack, hendo

SF wallace, brown

PF tyrus thomas(we bettr resign...a must)

C ???, ajinca( i think he will provide consitant min next yr as backup role), diop (we jus straight up stuck with him till his contract is a last yr deal,in 2 more yrs)

1. we wont move both naz and tyson so 1 will prolly start,

2. felton is not worth the money he wants, he isnt worth more than 6 million

3. we will have a 5 million exemption, tons of good FA's this yr, i d love the signing of brendon haywood, great shotblocker with decent offense... loves charlotte and practices with our team all summer anyway... maybe a home discount????

also could look at a kyle korver, we really need a consistant shooter, he would bring that here.....

we dont have any picks in draft so we bettr find some talent in FA or in moving some ending contracts, there can be amazing deals in trading ending deals look at pau gasols trade, an then last yr kevin martin for tmac.... its there we just have to find it...

-possibly cp3 with ownership changing (theyd be crazy to trade cp3)

-rumors are monta ellis could be available (he would be a 20 pt scorer, with a few assist)

any other ideas?? maybe calderon from raptors, he has fallen out of favor for jarret jack, he is a consitant 3 pt shooter and 10 assist man with a 97% FT...

all i know is we must do something, just wanna hear some ideas!

I bet Jordan & company are dreading just thinking about this off-season!

I mean, on one hand, the team started to turn things around, they sold a few tickets, and the city slowly started to embrace the team. On the other hand, they get swept out of the first round and just look embarrassing!!!

And now, they have to decide where they stand with what they have, weighing the fact that their future hall of fame coach may or may not return and they have zero picks in the upcoming draft!!! :eek:

This team can't catch a break!

I really don't know what I would do. Their first goal should be to make sure Larry returns, because I feel that together with Higgens & Jordan, the three of them will make the necessary moves, if not now - then during the season, to keep us competitive enough to make another push.

Without Larry, everything falls apart. That's just my opinion.

I think at the end of the day, Tyson will get his option because I can't see any other team wanting to match it. Tyrus will be interested. Felton is most likely a goner -- I just feel deep down, that the Bobcats want to hand the starting job over to DJ. It's his time.

All in all, I have no idea what we're in for. I just want to get through the draft and make sure Larry is back, and then hope somehow everything balances out.

MJ has said moves are coming, and I'm in the group that believes him. What I do think is entirely possible is a trade for CP3. We need a PG, the Hornets are in a sort of rebuilding phase and they like the guy that replaced Paul while he was injured (his name escapes me). Not only do we need a PG, but we need a star player and our owner loves CP3. I wouldn't expect a trade, but if we get him it won't surprise me.

Other than making the huge moves though, there are a few smaller things we can do. We've got some expiring contracts we can ship out. We can sign-and-trade Felton. And as much as I do like Stephen Jackson, I think it might be best for us to move him to free up some payroll if we can get a legitimate #1 scoring threat for the team. Again, I think this is unlikely too, but I consider nobody on this team other than Gerald Wallace untouchable. If it makes the team better, do it, because the Bobcats aren't in a spot to be picky.

Darren Collison was the backup pointguard. He was a rookie along with a second round draft pick rookie playing the shooting guard Marcus Thorton. Both played fantastic in Paul's absence, and both are much cheaper. As crazy as it sounds Hornets are in a good position to move Paul.

I will be beyond excited if we get Chris Paul.

I don't think our roster looks anything like it does now this time next year.

QFT

The only starter that's really worthy of keeping around for any extended time is Gerald Wallace, and even he is a complementary player. What we need is a star player and an actual dependable post presence before this team is going anywhere. We were good enough to make the playoffs this year, but we caught a big break when Bogut got hurt.

I think it is time for our young guys to step it up. I would like to see Henderson, Brown and Ajinca coming off the bench and getting minutes. A depth chart like this would intrigue me.

PG- CP3, DJ

SG- J-Ho, Hendo

SF- G-Force, Brown

PF- TT, Ajinca

C- Tyson, Diop

Hendo and Brown can probably both contribute next year, but I have seen nothing from Ajinca to make me think he is an NBA quality player.

Yeah i know. That draft boggled my mind. We could have had Brook Lopez and George Hill. Of course at the time Hill was not on my radar but Lopez was.

If Felton walks, we may be glad that we have Augustin.

The Bobs are in a real catch 22 with Felton. Let him walk and you may not be able to replace him via trade, FA, or improvement by DJ. Pay him to keep him around and you will never be better than the 5 seed in the East.

Monta Ellis, Tony Parker, CP3, Devin Harris would ALL be options to back or replace Felton.
