Just heard on WNZ that we traded them for Dampier, Najera and Carroll. Can anyone confirm? Yahoo is reporting this trade.

Dampier would mean cap room now since we can cut him and his unguaranteed contract. Carroll is a solid back-up and Najera is pretty much trash. As a general rule, I don't pay attention to radio reports, but this would be somewhat of an odd move if we do it.

If it is true though, the Bobcats have the most desirable expiring contract in the NBA in Dampier. Something is up.

Charlotte has traded Tyson Chandler and Alex Ajinca to Dallas for Dampier, Matt Carroll and Najera, a league source tells Y! Sports.

Dallas and Charlotte are getting on trade call with league office to finalize deal, source says.

The Bobcats are "very likely" to waive Dampier and his non-guaranteed $13 million salary for next season, a source tells Y!

13 million to play with, one guy who'll rarely see the court, and another who'll never see the court. This will be an interesting next few days/weeks.

We're not waiving Dampier. That'd leave us with money to play with, but no starters at PG or C available in free agency. Dampier is either going to stay in Charlotte (highly unlikely) or he's getting traded.

Unless we're taking back a large salary in a trade. In that case, we could waive Dampier and we'd be able to take back however much salary we wanted because we'd be under the cap. MJ and company are working hard at something.

Maybe we are, maybe we aren't.... that's what the source says.... I doubt you know for a fact that we won't waive Dampier, unless you work in the FO and are making the calls.

Maybe we are really pushing for A.J since he was in talks with the Mavs
