Tyson Chandler to opt out?

15 posts in this topic

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.

Amen to that.

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.

    • Scouting report: A player who arguably all season long was the best offensive threat in college basketball sits around the later top ten in almost all draft boards. Monk is easily compared to Jamal Crawford because of his aggressive shooting combined with the ability to score from anywhere. Monk shot a near 40 percent from three while shooting 82 percent from the free throw line in his first year at Kentucky. Monk averaged an SEC second best 19.8 points per game. Monk has a shooting skillset that is needed in the NBA but is hard to find. He has that unconscious shooting stroke which can be Curry like at times. What intrigues scouts the most about Monk is that he is not just a shooter, he plays above the rim and he can guard either the one or the two. Although Monk showed off his high-flying display all year long at Kentucky, it was his defense that stood out the most. His run and gun mentality allows him to jump passing lanes and play in your face defense on almost every possession forcing turnovers and fast break opportunities quite frequently. Monk is a dangerous transition guard who can score in a flurry. With the way that the NBA is going regarding athletic three point shooting guards, Monk would fit well with virtually every team in the NBA and could be used in multiple different lineups. Even though he is a shooter, Monk has the capability of running an offense and getting his teammates open.
