[quote]The Bobcats are waiting for answers from free-agent power forwards Kris Humphries and Antawn Jamison. If neither of those possibilities works out, Carl Landry could be an option to fill the Bobcats’ last inside roster spot. A 6-9 power forward, Landry was productive when healthy for the New Orleans Hornets last season, averaging 12.5 points, 5.2 rebounds and 50 percent shooting from the field. The problem has been injuries: He’s missed at least 25 games each of the past three seasons (one with the Sacramento Kings, the last two with the Hornets).[/quote]

[quote]Marc Stein: More amnesty scuttle: I'm told [url="http://twitter.com/ESPNSteinLine/statuses/224195448032870400"]Charlotte, New Orleans and Sacramento all have levels of Scola interest and weighing whether to lodge bids[/url] [url="http://twitter.com/ESPNSteinLine/statuses/224195448032870400"]Twitter[/url][/quote]

According to Bonnell, the Cats are working through this list

[b][color=#ffff00]1. Antawn Jamison[/color][/b] [color=#800080][b](Los Angeles Lakers)[/b][/color]
2. Carl Landry
[b][color=#000000]3. Kris Humphries (Brooklyn Nets)[/color][/b]
[color=#ffa500][b]4. Luis Scola[/b][/color][color=#000000] [/color][color=#800080][b](Phoenix Suns)[/b][/color]

I love to add Humphries but I think Scola will def add major points to this young offense.
Jamison is old, okay add, but not 1st or 2nd priority.

According to Bonnell, Scola isn't happening and Humphries isn't looking good. Antwan has the job if he wants it.

[color=#333333][font=Arial, sans-serif][background=rgb(245, 245, 245)]I hear the Nets have offered Humphries $20M over two seasons or $26M over 3 seasons. At that price, he's likely in Brooklyn.[/background][/font][/color][/quote]

[color=#333333][font=Arial, sans-serif]To answer the various questions, don't see Scola as a Bobcat. Jamison will be if that's what he chooses.[/font][/color][/quote]

I'd like Landry but he is about as sure of a full season as Haywood, Jamison is not a bad stop gap either.

If the Bobcats can't land Jamison, maybe there's a way for MJ to add some more talent, like a trade for Tyler Hansbrough or signing Joseph Forte, Ademola Okulaja, Ed Cota, Shammond Williams, Makhtar N'Diaye, David Noel, or Marcus Ginyard.

I'm sure that if they need another assistant that Matt Doherty would be a good fit. I can't put my finger on it but there's [i]something[/i] there that I'm sure MJ likes about Doherty.

lol duh. but just making my case.
And seriously, I think we could get Scola for less than Jamison since he was amnestied.

lol, I got a feeling we're getting Scola soon. Maybe tomorrow.
My sources are telling me that.
Just like how they told me we were getting Ramon, and then today Haywood.

Like I said a month ago, your sarcasm detector is broken. Are you going to drop some knowledge on me? "Bro, N'Diaye isn't even in the league anymore." Oh my God, I didn't know that.

Dude you haven't even seen the kid play all you did is read a ranking and went crazy about Noel.

With as little offensive skill as he has and his boney frame he would be stupid to come out next year.

I know bad sarcasm when I see it. The "myth" that the Bobcats are UNC-NBA Central is a dumb one. They've only drafted AND KEPT 2 UNC players in their history (Felton & May) since Wright was Golden State's guy, and they only had ever had 3 UNC players on their roster before the signing of Haywood (Felton & May and Jeff McInnis). Why aren't people tweeting or making "sarcastic" posts about the Bobcats always taking the UConn guy, since up until they acquired Haywood, they'd had more UConn players (Okafor, Voskuhl, Walker, and Gordon) than UNC ones?

Because most people are non-thinking idiots, that's why.

Four UNC guys = *NOT ALWAYS*.
Even if it gets up to 5 with Jamison it still = NOT ALWAYS.
