Now could Livingston be that PG (for now)? Or is his Airness putting together pieces for the right trade?

Keep in mind that Larry Brown makes point guards better. If Livingston is truly over this injury he could be that guy, he has a nice handle and good court vision. In a lot of ways he may be a upgrade.

Something bigger is coming than just Livingston being our PG. And if this big deal falls through, they've got a couple on the backburners now as back-ups.

EC123 blow up over PG > C in 5...4...3...2...1...

But in all seriousness, I think we're going after both. Dampier alone should net us one guy, and we'll throw some parts together to get a decent starter at the other position. Both are needs, both should get filled. Whoever threw the Dampier-Billups trade out yesterday, I am a fan of that.


Al Jefferson is gone.

At this point, I'm just waiting to see what becomes of the Dampier contract, and whether Diaw and Augustin are here next season, which I hope they are not.

I don't know if Livingston can last an entire season, or if he would be an acceptable starter, but he has skills, and came cheap. I have no issues with the signing.

The Bobcats still need a Center, and an above average one, but again, I'm just seeing who they end up with before I "blow up."

Who are they going to get rid of to make it happen?

I have to imagine that Augustin, Diaw, and maybe Dampier are next, though I would only be SURPRISED if either Gerald Wallace or Tyrus Thomas is traded, which I don't expect.

Jackson will be gone before Wallace, you'd think...if either had to be included.

Okafor may be OK on this team now, and he's healthy. Not a TRUE center but he can rebound and block and should be good for 10 points.

All I know is that supposedly the only players that will be left over from last year's roster after these trades get made are Thomas, Brown, Jackson, and Diop. If any part of it falls apart, Wallace will be staying with the Bobcats.

I hate losing Wallace. And if we do, I don't want it to be for CP3 either, I don't think he'll want to stay here for the long haul.

I hate Chris Paul with every part of me.

If we give up Crash to get him, I'm gone as well.
