BOBCATS Should Go After DWADE

46 posts in this topic

And he's one hell of a complementary scorer at that. I'm hoping that our "star player" comes at PF or C so we can keep Jackson and Wallace around.

With a better point guard who distributes the ball effectively and with good timing our scoring woes would be solved in that the entire team could effectively become the #1 scorer imo.

Of course we are weak at center but there is a lot of money tied up there so I don't think it can be improved through acquisitions next season, and though I like TT and even Diaw a little a great scoring PF would be really nice for this team.

The only player that "needs" to stay is Wallace. Whatever Michael has to do to clear out the rest... go for it.

Keep in mind I'd like to see several players stay, just saying that I think people are hanging onto too many players (even Jackson - he is not the answer).

I am about to upset quite a few fans. The suggestion will be seen as heresy by some but it has a solid touch of logic. So please try to have a open mind.

A favorite player of mine and many others will have to be on the trading block. The deal is Gerald Wallace and Nzar Mohamed for Chris Paul. We do not resign Raymond Felton. The second part of the restructuring is trading Boris Diaw and Diop to the Washington Wizards for Josh Howard.

My reasoning is i feel the Wizards may be hesitant to keep the somewhat mercurial off court presence that J-Howard is turning out to be after the Arenas Debacle. Getting two solid veteran in exchange is better than just letting him go when his team option clause kicks in. Then to the Hornets. Collison has turned out to be a steal. Paul is increasingly becoming expensive to retain. The Hornets have the aging Peja at SF and not much else. Putting G-Force on the court with West, Thornton, and Collison would be a new look Hornets along with Nzar backing up Omeka.

This would give us a depth chart of

PG- Paul, Augustin

SG- Hendo, Graham

SF- Howard, Brown

PF- TT, JJ Hickson

C- Chandler, Ajinca

Believe it or not i would be willing to move S-Jax also for maybe say JJ Hickson of the Cavs and a draft pick or two. Lets face it guys we need to get younger and cheaper. LB is likely off to yet another city to rebuild and go to the playoffs so lets give the new coach some young players with talent to mold.

Well you should have kept reading. CP3 is the face of the franchise but he is also becoming a very expensive player to keep around. Not only that Collison has been pretty good and may have earned a chance to start. Also taking Peja Stojakovic's contract all 15,000,000 of it in that trade could make it an even sweeter deal. Moving Boris and Diop would allow us to take Peja's contract. Also lastly to you sir

NO NEED TO BE A DICK. THIS ENTIRE THREAD WAS STARTED BY THE FANTASY OF D WADE PLAYING HERE. CAN I HELP IT I WANT TO RIGHT THE WRONG THAT TAKING FELTON AND MAY OVER A TRADE UP FOR PAUL WAS?

Actually it's very plausible they trade CP3 for expiring contracts or a piece they need. Collison actually played better last year than CP3, and a TON cheaper. To them it makes sense. Honestly, CP3 is probably the only big time player we could get this off-season, and that's even a big IF.

I would not be shocked to see us land some kind of big name this summer.

I would also not be shocked if we didn't.

I'm admitting my lack of knowlege about the way professional basketball's finances work, but could Carlos Boozer be an option for the Bobcats in free agency? He's a PF, which is a position of need for us, and has ties to the Carolinas due to him playing at Duke. I don't know if the Bobcats can afford him, but it seems like he'd be a very good fit in Charlotte.

    • elton simpson was monitored over a 9 year period (fbi claims there were breaks but at the least there were still years of monitoring) and at least $132,000 in cash was spent on one informant alone. here's the fbi's version in the immediate aftermath of the shooting:   Three hours before gunmen attacked an anti-Prophet Muhammad event in Garland, Texas on Sunday, the FBI sent a bulletin to local police with a photo of one of the shooters, Elton Simpson, noting that he was "interested in the event," FBI director James Comey said. At the time, the FBI had no reason to believe that Simpson intended to attack the event, Comey told reporters Thursday. Nor did the agency know that Simpson was already on his way there. Comey also said that he does not believe that the police officer who shot Simpson and the second gunman, Soofi Nadir, was aware of the bulletin. He went on to say that while the investigation of the Phoenix gunmen is far from complete, Comey believes the FBI acted appropriately. ..... Two weeks before the Garland event, which invited artists to draw illustrations of Muhammad, the FBI and Homeland Security warned law enforcement agencies across the country that it was at risk of being targeted by Islamic extremists. The advisory noted that supporters of ISIS and other terror groups had posted links to the contest on Twitter. Simpson was reading those posts, and communicated with an American in Somalia who'd called for attacking the event, investigators have said. The FBI then developed information that Simpson might be interested in traveling to Garland, Comey said. The Sunday bulletin followed. ..... The FBI now has hundreds of investigations of potential home grown extremists under way, with cases open in every state. "I know there are other Elton Simpsons out there," Comey said. Finding them, however, is a "very hard task," he said. Investigators can follow messages that are posted on public twitter accounts. But ISIS recruiters are steering people off Twitter into encrypted forums, which the government cannot see, Comey said. "Its the old going-dark problem, in living color," said Comey. He added: "We have hundreds working on it around the clock. But in almost every case of violence, someone saw something. A friend, a family member. Its more important than ever for people to speak up."     ^^^just a reminder for the bolded parts that a federal agent was in the car directly behind them as they opened their doors and began their short lived attack
    • Looks like it has potential. BvS was terrible. I will say the extended version was a better film but still not good. Suicide Squad was one of the worst films I've seen in a while.  That said of course I will waste my money and go see this. I hope they bring back Batman's more cunning qualities in future films. I got the sense that in BvS he was a what you see is what you get type of guy. You don't get the feeling that he has something up his sleeve at all times. Which was something Nolan/Bale had, almost Bond-esque.
    • Saw it the other night and found it surprisingly decent. The acting was pretty damn good for a power rangers movie. Obvious plot holes are obvious and the plot advances before it's ready at times but it's not a bad movie. I thought the suits were cool but the zords looked terrible and the megazord was hideous. Would have been better off copying the original one tit for tat.
