Chandler and Frenchy traded to Dallas?

94 posts in this topic

The Bobcats have traded big men Tyson Chandler and Alex Ajinca to the Mavericks, in exchange for Erick Dampier, Matt Carroll and Eduardo Najera.

The deal should be finalized soon, so Michael Jordan won't have an opportunity to change his mind. We're assuming that Chandler, in the final year of his contract, will fill a backup PF/C role for the Mavs.

Veteran center Erick Dampier was traded from the Mavericks to the Bobcats on Tuesday, though he may never play a game for Charlotte.

Dampier was highly coveted this summer not because of his skills, but because his $13 million contract is fully unguaranteed. The Bobcats will surely waive him, allowing him to seek employment as an unrestricted free agent.

Good trade in my opinion we can do a lot know with either keeping Dampier or letting him go either way it will be fun.

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.

Well I did add to my post after that, but logically it doesn't make any sense. Why swap Chandler for Dampier when they're essentially the same player with the same contract? The only edge Dampier has is that his contract isn't guaranteed, which means we must be getting ready to trade him, or cut him so we can take back a big salary. Why would we cut him if something else wasn't in the works? We wouldn't, because that would leave us with a lack of big men, the supposed reason why we pulled out of the trade with Toronto.

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

Already been traded to the Jazz for 2 first rounders.

So who do you think we are freeing up all of this money for? Because this trade helps us in no way at all imo.

I was thinking Luke Ridnour as a free agent possibility or use Dampier as trade bait for a better point guard than Calderon. A lot of teams were offering quite a bit for Dampier. The Mavs rejected a trade that would have sent Al Jefferson to Dallas for Dampier, but they accepted a trade that sent Tyson Chandler and Ajinca to Dallas for Dampier, Carroll, and Najera. So don't worry the Bobcats aren't done yet.

Yup, this is just a stepping-stone trade... that Dampier contract is highly coveted, bigger moves coming.

If bigger moves don't come this is worse than when he drafted kwame brown. Especially considering jose calderon is way better than any of those 3 players we just brought in.

They supposedly got this pushed through the league offices exceptionally quickly too. MJ must have his eye on somebody that is wanted by someone else.

If Dampier is moved for a PG, that still leave a huge hole in the middle for the Cats.
