Larry Brown would take him in a heartbeat. He knows "just what to do with him" better than anyone else in the NBA. MJ respects his game and has played against AI. AI may be a better fit than some may think.

We need to hurry up because Allen Iverson has been contacted by the Miami Heat. The good thing is we have made some progress. The Bobcats did not renew Sean Singletary's contract leaving a roster spot open for a point guard.

The bobcats need to free up some major cap space.


AI isn't going to come cheap.

It doesn't seem like it will happen now, but the only teams that are pursuing him at the moment are listed in desire from greatest to least.
1. Grizzlies
2. Heat
3. Bulls (There is a sign and trade rumor going on where the Bulls get A.I. and the Pistons get Ben Gordan, however there is not much strength to the rumor.)

The sign and trade isn't going to happen with the Bulls and Pistons.

The only team he's expressed interest in is Charlotte, Miami and Memphis.

If we pick AI up then we need to trade Raja so Henderson can get mins off the bench.

He has expressed interest in us we have not expressed interest in him. He has not even talked to our organization since the FA period started. He will not be in a Bobcats uniform this year.

I calculated some numbers and with them not resigning Sean May, Sean Singletary, and possibly not resigning Juwan Howard we should have anywhere from 1.7 mil to 2.0 mil to work with.

Payroll is sitting at 55,839,277 without the Rookie Contracts.

The Cap is 57.3 and the luxury tax is 69.4 million.

Yeah I calculated the rookie contracts into it. Just ran some numbers through. I believe it should be really close to 1.8 million.

I would love to get rid of Nzar's and Vlad's contracts.... Maybe a sign and trade with Detroit. I can dream... They sign AI to a contract and ship him here for Nzar and Vlad.

I really wish I knew what Larry Brown and the whole organization was doing.

same here, but I'd accept AI for a year or two if it means us getting rid of those two ugly contracts off the team.
