No way. The Dampier move screams that another one is coming, and even if its not, then cutting Dampier and saving the money would be a shrewd, if unpopular, business move by MJ.

Problem was he didn't save any money - He picked up 17 million in salary over the next three years and gave up 14 over 1. That's not counting the 3 million in cash received in the trade or Dampier's contract, but at best Charlotte broke even money wise in that trade.

I voted no panic didn't like the trade. And that's how I feel if this is the only one. But I think that this is a trade that will allow us to make another trade and that one will give us what we want.

But that trade for Dampier gives us leverage with teams looking to dump salary THIS year. That is where we will be able to help our team.

I realize that and that part is fine..... The picking up Carrol's contract (which is horrible and is in the same boat as Diop) which is horrible. That's the part I don't like, your 3rd string SG making almost 5 million a year = ehhhhhhh.

The only way this trade even looks decent is if the cats can manage to shed Dampier for a starting quality PG that's better then Calderon as well as pick up a quality Center in some form of another.

Carrolls contract number is 4.3 mil for this year. (11.7 mil for the 3 years) We are getting cash from Dallas to help offset some of that salary. (didn't say how much but the max is 3 mil) If it's the 3 mil then that makes Carroll's salary down to less than 9 mil for 3 years. That still isn't great but it's not outrageous.

Like i've said, I don't think Dampier will be here long enough to get a uniform. I hope MJ and LB have a plan to get a PG from someone.

Would have been nice to have done this trade before the LeBron thing and have gotten Beasley from the Heat with Dampiers money.

Terrible trade.

Damp's contract is the only thing appealing to other teams.
