Also something on it on ESPNInsider access

Me personally I like it. Free up some cash.

Thoughts?

On one hand, it'd be really nice to be rid of his contract. On the other, he's a pretty decent starter at C when he's healthy and that expiring contract would be good for the Bobcats in trades.

Is Tyson really that stupid? He won't get that money anywhere else.

A source close to the situation told ESPN.com that Bobcats big man Tyson Chandler is seriously considering exercising an early termination option on his contract this summer. If Chandler terminates his contract early, he'll forfeit the remaining $12.6 million he's due from the Bobcats and become an unrestricted free agent on July 1st.

I am fine with him opting out as long as we acquire a draft pick. I don't want him leaving and then the Bobcats going out and signing a Center to replace him. If we could get a draft pick and draft a Center, maybe Solomon Alabi, Daniel Orton, Dexter Pittman, or Brian Zoubek. Then use that 13 mil to grab a couple of guys that could help this team Some noteable free agents that the Bobcats should take a look at are.....

PF- Hakim Warrick
PF- Amir Johnson
PF- Ian Mahinmi
SF- Travis Outlaw
SG- Tony Allen
SG- Roger Mason Jr.
PG- Nate Robinson
PG- Luke Ridnour

I like Tyson but if he leaves it would free up some salary. Also Diop is an offensive black hole but he is a legit 7 footer. It is about time we start seeing something from Ajinca.

Its not about this year, its about security for the next three.

PF- Carlos Boozer
PF- David Lee
PF- Udonis Haslem
PF- Hakim Warrick
PF- Amir Johnson
PF- Ian Mahinmi
SF- Travis Outlaw
SF- Kyle Korver
SG- Joe Johnson
SG- Tony Allen
SG- Roger Mason Jr.
PG- Nate Robinson
PG- Luke Ridnour


You can give up on Boozer and Lee, those are guys looking for max contracts. Haslem most likely stays in Miami, and he's undersized for PF. Korver can't defend, so LB will automatically hate him and never play him. Joe Johnson is another max free agent guy, and we'd have to trade one of Jackson or Wallace for him to be a fit.

Not trying to rain on your parade, just being a realist. :)

I cannot believe what I am reading. This would be a blessing for the Bobcats, who would immediately become a bit thin at center, but have some cap room to work with.

I already envision an occasional front court of Wallace, Diaw, and TT.

This would make so much more sense for TC if he had bothered to show up for the playoffs.

chandler may feel that signing a 3 or 4 year deal for less money is better than being trade bait for most of next season, even if we trade him we could sign a decent center like brendan haywood who is bigger and more physical

I love how they were like "OMG the Bobcats might lose Chandler!!?!?" When in reality this makes the Bobcats front office look like they completely fleeced New Orleans.

My concern (based entirely on MJs history as a front office manager) is that if TC opts out, Jordan will then overpay to keep Felton since the Bobs would then have extra cap space.

Signing Felton to a long term deal = a long term deal for mediocrity.
