Bobcats trade J Rich to Suns for Diaw & Raja!!!

62 posts in this topic

Man, Brown will bury this franchise trying to make this his team. So all you can get for an all-star caliber SG is 2 bench players? This trade is about as bad as the Lakers/Memphis trade last year. Total pwnage!

This trade will only work if the Bobcats use Diaw as the player he is...a non-traditional big man. He has a wide variety of skills that can only be maximized in an fast-paced, open court environment. He is a good low post defender, can knock down shots and create mismatches at the offensive end. He, DJ, Gerald and Raymond have the potential to push the ball and play that style. It remains to be seen if Coach Brown has it in him to loosen the reigns and get after it.

I don't get it at all. This team has made only a few good moves in their entire existence.

Selecting G force in the expansion draft.

Trading for JRich even in light of his contract.

Drafting JDudley.

Signing Larry Brown.

Of the 4 good things, we just shipped two off for a pair of role players.

Espn hasn't done their homework:

"Diaw will help with Charlotte's biggest problem, and Brown's biggest complaint: its thin frontcourt."

They have obviously never seen Sean May. The Bobs frontcourt is nothing thin.

:rofl: ragging on sean may is so easy...

Still not sure how I feel about this trade....I think Diaw can help if used properly like some people have already touched on...Raja is a veteran, which we need. My question is, now that Singletary is here, will they move Raymond or just be 3 deep at PG?

If Raymon is moved they would have to get another veteran PG. They've been looking for a veteran third point. There is no way that Coach Brown would go with two rookies at that spot on the floor. Barring another trade it seems likey that DJ and Raymond will play together the majority of the time.
