person familiar with the deal told The Associated Press on Thursday night the Bobcats will get this June's first-round pick Portland acquired from New Orleans and a 2013 pick from the Trail Blazers. The Bobcats are also acquiring Sean Marks from Portland, but will waive him along with forwards Dominic McGuire and Derrick Brown, guard Sherron Collins and Peterson, the person told the AP on condition of anonymity because the deal was still awaiting league approval.

Depth Chart

C- Kwame Brown, Joel Przybilla, D.J. White, DeSagana Diop

PF- Tyrus Thomas (when he comes back), Boris Diaw, Eduardo Najera

SF- Stephen Jackson, Dante Cunningham

SG- Gerald Henderson, Matt Carroll

PG- D.J. Augusin, Shaun Livingston

Roster= 13

I don't know if ESPN is assuming that we are realeasing Mo Pete and UPS but I can't see the Bobcats doing that because we would have no depth at all, realistically here is what I see.

I doubt they will drop Derrick Brown or anyone more than what would put them at 15 players.

Hope we keep Brown.

We could also see Diaw playing some more SF now.

Can't say that I agree with the move for UPS. Heck even McGuire had shown some flashes here and there. Both players will be picked up by someone else.

They way I understand NBA rules, you can never have more than 15 players on a roster without a special exemption. Yesterday's roster before the trades was 15, the trades brought in 5 and 2 left. The team had to waive three players before the trades could be approved. I think the team is purposefully cutting down to 13 players because so many other teams are waving/buying out guys right now that the Cats are looking at bringing one or two of them in.

They can bring them back. I think we'll try to bring Brown back. I hope so at least.

Higgins says he plans on releasing Mo Peterson and Marks today, which will give the cats room to sign one or more players they waived, most notably mcguire, brown or collins. per charlotte observer...

Charlotte Bobcats general manager Rod Higgins said he plans to release veterans Morris Peterson and Sean Marks, players who were picked up to make trades work Thursday.

That opens the possibility the Bobcats will bring back one or more of the players they waived -- Derrick Brown, Dominic McGuire or Sherron Collins -- or possibly someone else, since they'll have room under the 15-man roster maximum.
