The team’s brain trust seems to be aware of this, and Michael Jordan has instructed his president and GM to work the phones to try to improve the roster before the upcoming trade deadline passes.
From Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer:


While [president of basketball operations Rod Higgins] isn’t predicting a screech of the brakes and a yank on the steering wheel, his tone sounded different Thursday: The Bobcats are definitely in the market for some kind of change.
“We’re very active – our owner wants us to be active,’’ Higgins told the Observer in regard to the Feb. 21 trade deadline.
Higgins said owner Michael Jordan has given Higgins and general manager Rich Cho “the green light to go out and make this team better…I don’t think there’s any limits to what we’d try to do.’’

Ben Gordon might be the player the Bobcats would like to move in exchange for some additional talent. He can still score when given the opportunity, but is the fourth guard on the team in terms of minutes distribution behind Walker, Gerald Henderson, and Ramon Sessions.

Absolutely not. Taylor is the type of piece a winning team needs. Henderson is not. Taylor will be one of the top defenders in the league for a long time and gives us a really good 3 point threat. There really is nothing special that stands out about Henderson besides being able to get us a better trade.

I'm honestly a fan of Hendo and what he can bring to a team, but I don't think that he will improve much more and it isn't in the teams best interest to sign him long term. We need our SG spot occupied by Shabazz or Wiggins in the future. MKG will never be a huge offensive threat imo (Iggy or Crash in his best years) so we will definitely need a superstar scorer at SG next to Kemba who is ideally a very good #3 option.

I'm praying we can somehow land Shabazz in the draft to play SG for us. We desperately need that kind of scorer. He and Wiggins are the two next greats.

I agree we need his scoring, but I have to say if we do that- then we AGAIN are sweeping the major issue under the rug. We would have to address PF/C in free agency and throw big bucks to some other name and hope he chases the money instead of the ability to win a title somewhere else.. who 'said' player is- i dont know

We are so guard heavy and our defense is atrocious because we have to collapse on the guy driving into the lane because no one down there can stop them.. We need someone down low- like a Alex Len who can develope into a Brook Lopez type player..








Augustine over Lopez still makes me cry...

poo, that wasnt even the worst part. Bobcats had 2 top 20 picks in the 2008 draft and had an opportunity to draft all of the following bigs-

Brook Lopez
Roy Hibbert
Serge Ibaka
Robin Lopez
Kosta Koufos
Javale Mcgee
Ryan Anderson
Omer Asik
Nikola Pekovic
Deandre Jordan
JJ Hickson

For christ sake that draft produced almost half the starting centers in the NBA and the Bobcats ended up with DJ and Alexis Ajinca

At that time, though Ajinca was in the same company as those guys. Nobody knew how they would pan out. None of them are stars.

I knew as soon as DJ was named and Lopez' face dropped- we would be sorry and as soon and A-J-I-N-C-A was announced we had dropped the ball again..

No he was not....he could not even start on his French team.

The French Pastry was bust material from the moment he was drafted.
