Rick Bonnell

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).


Marc Stein: More amnesty scuttle: I'm told Charlotte, New Orleans and Sacramento all have levels of Scola interest and weighing whether to lodge bids Twitter


Marc Stein: If all those teams proceed w/actual bids, Scola auction would be five-team affair decided SUN at 5 PM ET. ONLY under-the-cap teams can bid Twitter


According to Bonnell, the Cats are working through this list

1. Antawn Jamison (Los Angeles Lakers)
2. Carl Landry
3. Kris Humphries (Brooklyn Nets)
4. Luis Scola (Phoenix Suns)

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.

Rick Bonnell@rick_bonnell
I hear the Nets have offered Humphries $20M over two seasons or $26M over 3 seasons. At that price, he's likely in Brooklyn.


Rick Bonnell@rick_bonnell
To answer the various questions, don't see Scola as a Bobcat. Jamison will be if that's what he chooses.

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 something 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.

Just like how they told me we were getting Ramon, and then today Haywood.
