Other than Al Jefferson, that's what I give the Bobcats. This trade would be a huge splash for the Bobcats. You get a legitimate guy to plug the middle, and two expiring contracts on positions you need assistance in this upcoming season...PG and back up PF.
I would be surprised of Bird would support a projected two more losses, but maybe they'll make some moves to plug some holes.
The back up PF, while limited some in ability, is a high energy guy coming from a team with an abundance of similar players, and would probably be a hometown hero, in Charlotte, more so than any of the other UNC players they've had. This move only benefits ticket sales.
Sherron Collins can play behind the PG acquisition for a year to see if he develops into anything. If he doesn't, then move on after the year.
PG - TJ Ford
PF - Tyler Hansbrough (reunites with Hendo's elbow)
C - Al Jefferson
PG - DJ Augustin
HF - Boris Diaw
C/PF - Tyson Chandler
C - Alexis Ajinca
If Indiana won't give up Tyler Hansbrough, try to get Josh McRoberts from them. If you can't get him, try to get Brandon Wright from Golden State to back up Tyrus Thomas this upcoming season. Both McRoberts and Wright are expiring contracts.
