Uh, why not ship Jack to the Hornets and keep Wallace.
First off, this. Jackson is actually making less money than Crash is, so there's a good chance Jackson would be more appealing, especially if the Hornets really are going into a "dump payroll" phase.
Also, bringing back Felton to back up CP3 probably isn't that good of an idea. Felton is going to be making too much to be a back-up, especially if we're going to be spending top money for Paul. Steve Blake is a much better fit as a back-up PG.
In the Tyson Chandler/Rip Hamilton deal we'd be trading one injury prone player's bloated contract for another's, who's actually making more money than Chandler is.
Can't say much about trading Diaw for Smith/Anderson, I kind of like this deal if it were to go down. What I can say though is we could get an Anthony Morrow/Kyle Korver-type guy on the cheap in free agency.
The ESPN trade machine isn't really working at the moment because guys like Mohammed and Chandler haven't made it official that they're staying yet, but there are a few things I'd love for us to do this offseason. One is upgrade at PG. I don't really care whether its CP3 (actually I do, he's my favorite option), Harris, or someone like them, we need an improvement over Felton if this team is going to go anywhere. One player I do not like for PG though is Monta Ellis. He'd be fine as a two-guard, but he's no PG. Another thing we need to do is improve what we've got going in the frontcourt. Allowing Thomas to start is part of that, but I think we should go out and sign someone, specifically Brendan Haywood, to be our starter at C with Nazr backing him up and Chandler shipped out of town. Another thing we do need is a sniper off the bench, which I think one of Morrow or Korver would be great for.
All in all what I really want the Bobcats to do is to not stand pat with what they have. This isn't a young team that just had its first of a long string of playoff appearances, nor are we in a situation where we can just buy a championship. Like it or not, the Bobcats are a hobbled together club that got into the playoffs this year more off the sweat of their backs than the amount of talent this team has. I really believe being standing pat will kill this team, that is, if we don't try to make improvements now then we may as well mail in next year.
