Whats wong with adding Shaun Livingston? 24years old height: 6'7" wingspan: 6'11" free agent point guard. He averaged 15.5 points, 3.6 rebounds, and 6.3 assists in eight April games last season (rotoworld). 4th pick in the 2004 draft. He's full healed from his
devastating knee injury (which happened in a game aganist the bobcats in 2004). If anything he can backup DJ.


I suspect this has something to do with it.

He's healed now. At very least he can split time with DJ.

T.J. Ford would be a nice option as long as we don't have to trade Henderson. Here's an off the wall idea, I hate unc and we finally got all of them off of the roster but check with Denver and see what the asking price would be for Ty Lawson.

Not available, though was available when Hendo was picked last year. The Bobs just had no idea that DJ was going to slip as much as he did last year and didn't feel like PG was an issue.

Yes. We haven't exactly tried to distance ourselves from potential problem players, but Arenas' baggage isn't far enough behind him to warrant taking a flyer. Not to mention his TWO bum knees and horrid contract. A trade for Arenas would set us back several years.

Washington would have to take Diop and send cash considerations.

NOTE: This is not my idea, but I love it and want to share it with the Bobcats fanbase. You can find the original post here: http://www.rufusonfi...he-bobcats-into

Bobcats get: Chris Paul - PG, Emeka Okafor - PF/C

Hornets get: Tyson Chandler - C, Nazr Mohammad - C, DJ Augustin - PG, future 1st round pick, two future 2nd round picks

Why it works: New Orleans gets around $20MM in expiring contracts, more money than they were getting in the rumored Portland-New Orleans deal, and they are able to shed Okafor's contract. This makes the team easier for George Shinn to sell. New Orleans also gets three future draft picks. Charlotte gets the kind of player that MJ would go over the luxury tax for in All-Star PG Chris Paul. While Okafor has a bad contract, he fills the hole we have at center. Given this situation, we could trade Diaw for a second round pick, given that we've filled our holes. That's akin to giving him away. Our roster would then look like:

PG: Paul
SG: Jackson/Henderson
SF: Wallace/Brown
PF: Thomas/McGuire
C: Okafor/Diop/Anjica

Fill the rest of the roster (a back-up for Paul, maybe a combo guard) out with guys willing to play for limited money. That's a team that can legitimately challenge the likes of the Celtics, Magic, and Heat.

Of course its probably a pipe dream, but isn't the offseason for dreaming?

And a much better team. Plus, its not like Okafor isn't a good player. While he's not the pure force that somebody like Dwight Howard is, Oak is a double-double machine. He gives us consistency, which is vastly underrated.

very true, and thatd give us a pretty good defensive front in the Post with TNT and Oak

The offseason is definitely for dreaming. I doubt that would every fly, but who knows?

Also, Diop is a complete offensive liability, but he is actually a pretty decent defender. He can provide a few quality minutes when he needs to.

The Diop trade (which was all LB's doing) has to go down as the dumbest FO move this team has ever made.
