I'm confused about this trade, I'm not sure what MJ and the Cats are cooking up. However I do know that there should be another move after this one.

Can somebody explain to me what this move does for us? I mean, I understood the Calderon deal that never was but this..... what does this give us?

This gives us more flexability to make another move. Calderon's contract was guaranteed and for 3 yrs., Dampier's is 1 yr and not guaranteed. Chandler's will expire after this year but is guaranteed. We can cut Dampier and free up salary cap THIS year if we want. Or trade him for a better player as his unguaranteed contract is more valuable then Chandler's.

I mean, we could have at least used Chandler next year and Ajinca seems like he could have eventually been depth.

Chandler hasn't shown any indication the he can stay healthy and Ajinca hasn't shown that he can stay out of foul trouble

And we pick up Matt Carroll's contract when it's already inflated?

Matt could be our Flip Murray. We missed Flip's offense from the bench down the stretch after we traded him. Plus we got cash in this deal the will offset some of Matt's salary.

Does anybody know what direction we're heading right now?

I think we are seeing the tip of the iceberg from MJ. I think Dampier will never put on a Bobcats uni and will be shipped out for a PG or center.

This is just my opinion and I have no way of knowing just which direction we are going. But like you guys i hope this isn't the end

according to the espn article, that i think was posted somewhere earlier, we might be interested in Ramon Sessions of Minnesota. Young kid from University of NEvada @ Reno. Anyone know anything about this kid??

Meh, he isn't very athletic and is probably best served coming off of the bench.

He makes 4.5 or so million this year. and has 3 years and 11.7 million left. - Matt Carrol's contract.

Thats not to bad if he can return to his form like he had in Charlotte, then I think that's fine. In the four full years Carroll was here in Charlotte he averaged pretty good numbers.

04-05 Season

Points- 9.0 (Season High- 22) *hit double figures 12 times in 25 games.

Assists- 0.7 (Season High- 3)

Rebounds- 2.4 (Season High- 7)

Blocks- 0.10 (Season High- 1)

Steals- 0.70 (Season High- 4)

05-06 Season

Points- 7.6 (Season High- 26) *hit double figures 26 times in 78 games.

Assists- 0.4 (Season High- 3)

Rebounds- 2.0 (Season High- 9)

Blocks- 0.10 (Season High- 1)

Steals- 0.60 (Season High- 3)

06-07 Season

Points- 12.1 (Season High- 27) * hit double figures 45 times in 72 games.

Assists- 1.3 (Season High- 5)

Rebounds- 2.9 (Season High- 9)

Blocks- 0.10 (Season High- 1)

Steals- 0.70 (Season High- 3)

07-08 Season

Points- 9.0 (Season High- 23) * hit double figures 34 times in 80 games.

Assists- 0.9 (Season High- 4)

Rebounds- 2.8 (Season High- 11)

Blocks- 0.20 (Season High- 2)

Steals- 0.60 (Season High- 4)

Matt Carroll Career High's

Points- 27 (twice)

Assists- 5 (once)

Rebounds- 11 (once)

Blocks- 2 (once)

Steals- 4 (twice)

Honestly, I think Matt Carroll will determine if the trade was a good one or a bad one. If Carroll doesn't perform well I think this trade could be labled as a a bad one. However, if Carroll performs well then there is no doubt the Bobcats stole one.

Carroll won't see the court much with LB as coach. IMO. He isn't a versatile player like LB wants. He is an old school shooting guard that could really excel with a team like Orlando.

I think the trade is ok, but the team is definitely worse then it was. Still no PG and now even a bigger need at Center... This trade if they don't have something follow it = ????????????

I have a blind trust going on here that makes me believe that MJ and the FO are not mentally disabled and have some more moves up their sleeves.

I wouldn't be surprised to see a Dampier-Billups trade on the horizon.

I think there is a 30% chance the Bobcats hook up with Portland and make a trade involving Andre Miller and Eric Dampier. There may be some other players included, but Portland has been contacting teams trying to trade Miller.
