Actually frees it up for Barnes or Gilchrist now, since Gordon's a shooter.


We have a competent owner now. Jordan won't pass on a clutch scoring machine with his drive & passion for a defensive specislist with the jump shot of a special olympic athlete.

Hes got 2 yr 26.6 million left on this deal, which scares you at first, but again, I dont see us being aggressive in FA until AFTER his contract runs out in 2 years.

Just a perfect trade.

This will be the roster under contract assuming we draft Barnes

- Kemba Walker
- Ben Gordon, Gerald Henderson, Matt Carroll
- Harrison Barnes, Reggie Williams
- Bismack Biyombo, Tyrus Thomas
- Byron Mullens, DeSagana Diop

We still have five roster spots left

According to source, the pick is lottery protected next year, top 8 in 2014, No. 1 protected in 2015 and unprotected in 2016.

Cho is the man. We also need to become portland fans next year.

Also, if Cho & Jordan have decided Barnes is the guy they better be weary of trading #2. Wouldn't be suprised to see CLE or WAS grab him.

I have also thought about that. If they trade the pick, I think that just means they are satisfied with Barnes or MKG and will take which ever one they can get.

This season will at least be a little more interesting.

Nah, I'm suggesting that Barnes won't be there at #4 if the Bobcats trade back. Now if they pick Beal at #2 and then have Washington and Cleveland both calling for him, that's one thing, but Washington and Cleveland have both said they're fine with Barnes as a substitute for Beal.

What I'm saying, is if the Bobcats trade with Cleveland, and end up with #4, it'll go something like this:

#2 Beal (Cleveland)
#3 Barnes (Washington)
#4 Gilchrist or Robinson

Yucky scenario.

Robinson wouldn't be nearly as good on the Bobcats as people think unless they dramatically improve their wing scoring. Gordon is a good start.

Say the Bobcats end up with the 5th pick next year.

The Cats could potentially end up with the 5th, 9th, and 13th pick in the 2013 NBA Draft.

That would be amazing.

It's got to be Gilchrist at that point because we wouldn't have a small forward on the roster.

I think a draft night trade might involve players and perhaps picks. Don't be surprised if we get a starting SF that way and still go T-Rob with our actual draft pick.
