Then how about not stating your opinion as fact then? Sorry if I'm being an ass, but that's one thing that always bothers me. If its your opinion, state it as such. I try to do it as much as possible. I think the deals they've proposed (especially in Part are all pretty plausible.
How does it add more cap? Diaw makes $9MM in '10/'11 and $9MM in '11/'12. Hinrich makes $9MM in '10/'11 and 8MM in '11/'12, meaning we actually are helping our cap situation.
I was talking about the Mohammed - nocioni trade that has the Bobcats picking up an additional year in a sub par big man - sub par big man swap. If you keep Mohammed he comes off the books after the coming season.
On the flip side, besides for Wallace and Jackson he's actually one of the few players that could be easily traded.
However getting back to the Hinrich trade, if the bulls do trade him they are going to be looking for something substantial in return. I don't think a Diaw for Hinrich will be enough to entice the bulls into trading him. Especially with the PG free agent market the way it is.
Also it's not just Opinion on the trades and why they are most likely not going to happen. It's logic, The Bobcats are screwed cap wise, they have 10 players signed for next year and are already over the cap. This is counting a qualified offer for TT at 6.6 million ( which is probably on the low end if they resign him). The only way they get out of it is by giving up a key player. The Bobcats have a choice - be a mediocre/30-45 win team for the next 3 years or try moving a piece now.
So lets take a look at the roster and who's actually worth something and could help the cats both long term and short term.
DJ - Young, but with how rocky last season was - probably not a lot of trade value. Doubtful he would be traded unless it landed a substantial player or pick back.
Henderson - no playing time last season and at this moment the team most likely isn't looking to trade him,...
Diaw - One of the only assets the team has for trades, especially if TT is resigned to a deal. However he makes 18 million over the next two seasons.
Diop - Unmovable - as mentioned above. Makes 20 million over the next three years with the third year a player option at 7.3 million.
Mohammed - Asset, expiring deal worth 6.8 million.
Chandler - Player option worth 12.75 million - expiring deal - Asset if a team is willing to take on his contract for a season. However it's very doubtfully that a team is going to send a player worth the 13 million back..... More then likely would only be traded if packaged with other players.
Ajinca - enough said, has ton of upside. Just doesn't seem to get it or something and isn't really a trade asset with his contract. Has three years left, year two is a team option and year three a player option.
Thomas - Not going to be traded just after being resigned, if they can manage to do so. Giving up a 1st rounder for a rental would suck....
Wallace - Definitely an asset - Great all around player and an excellent defender. Has 3 years and 30 million left on his contract, the last year being a player option. My favorite player and one I think is probably untouchable in trade....He's still one of the team's best trade pieces.
Jackson - 3 years 27 million left - easily the best trade asset the team has. Proven scorer and a good defender. He's getting up there in age and it's no telling how much he has left. It's probably the best time to trade him as his value is high after last season.
So all the players that are currently signed or are expected to be back.
So that's Diaw, Jackson, Wallace and Mohammed as the team's trade assets that are movable to the point where something good could be had in return. With a possibility on Chandler.
