I think we all saw this coming and expect him to sign

Marc J. Spears@SpearsNBAYahoo
Bobcats intrigued by Jamison's versatile game and that he is a Charlotte native who played at North Carolina. Bobcats could use a local draw.

I would love for him to end his career here. Great mentor who can still play at a high level. Maybe he can smack Tyrus around a little bit and teach him a thing or two about being a professional.

In an ideal world, we could land him, Hickson, and a decent center


In reality only one of those will likely happen

I have always been a big fan of Jamison since his days here at Providence High School and at UNC. I just wonder how much is left in the tank. I believe he is heading into his 15th season.

a jamison, hickson, mahimi pu pu platter would be far more interesting than any of those players on their own.

ideally we get ersan ilyasova, but i dont think that is going to happen. he does fill 3 of our biggest needs, 1) 3 pt shoorting, 2) rebounding, especially offensive, 3) power forward.

Id be super happy with ersan + mahimi. Hawes would be nice, but I doubt that happens.

jamsion is ideally suited to play 15-20 a night. I just hope we dont intend to have him playing 30 min.

If we could sign him and JJ Hickson that would be a good off season for me.

If nothing else, he is a veteran presence who will give you some nice versatility off the bench. Besides, he WANTS to be here.

If we signed Jamison, I doubt we would sign Hickson due to the fact that they both play the same position.

Either one would be a good pick-up for the Bobcats, but I think Jamison is the more likely of the two to sign in Charlotte.

A roster of

PG: D.J. Augustin, Kemba Walker
SG: Ben Gordon, Gerald Henderson, Reggie Williams, Matt Carroll
SF: Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Derrick Brown, Jeff Taylor
PF: Antawn Jamison, Bismack Biyombo, Tyrus Thomas
C: Byron Mullens, DeSagana Diop

would be a significant upgrade over last years roster...

If we could just sign a starting caliber center.

Jamison averaged 17 and six last year. I would start him over Biz in a heartbeat.

neither mullens nor diop are currently rotation caliber players at the moment, though Mullens does have the ability to improve (by extending his shot to 3 pt range, for instance). thus if we get a guy like jamison and no center it likely means biz is playing center mostly next year. if tyrus returns to anywhere near the form he played at 2 years ago he will start alongside biz- over jamison. That a big if, but 2 years ago he was better than biz, jamison, mullens, etc are likely to be next year.

With jamison, you have to realize that his 16-17 points last year were very inefficient points, and while given 30+ min of playing time a night. Plus he is particularly terrible on defense. At anything more than 3 mil a year and a gunner bench role, its a waste of salary and roster space.

He was a starter, how are those inefficient points?

Without his 17 points night in and night out, the Cavs don't win some of the games they won last year.

Also Biz can't play center!!!

so....his points were efficient because he started?

let me explain, he takes a lot of shots at a very low shooting % and doesnt go to the free throw line enough to even that out. His game has dropped off dramatically the past two seasons.

here are some stats for you to read before saying comments similar to the above

http://www.basketbal.../jamisan01.html

jamison's shooting %s last year: fg:40%, 3pt: 34% , ft:68% - on 16 shooting attempts a game. His True Shooting % was 48% - anything under 50% is really really bad for a power forward.
