Higgins "Bobcats Will Sign Max-Level Free Agent"

79 posts in this topic

So what's the point of signing Chris Paul? Who is he going to distribute the ball too? We need bigs....bottom line. We can't defend the post. That's priority number 1.

QFT

This FA class has lots of good bigs. Sign Pekovic, Millsap, Jefferson or Hickson and draft best available player. I would take Pekovic over the lot. That dude is a beast, tough as nails and still young (just turned 27). We are going to have to overpay for whoever we get though, just how it goes.

would love to get him and McLemore in the draft. There are guys on this board saying that we should suck again next year and hope to get a Wiggins type player.

I think we're closer than people think. You have to remember how young we are...is MKG 20 yet?

Kemba will be entering his third year and has shown a ton of impovement. McLemore is perfect for Kemba and will make him even better with someone to kick out to.

That gives us the small 3 positions filled, and with a talented big like Pek (who we can afford if we can get him to come), we have a young talented squad that will only get better. Not to mention if we get Portland's pick this year, and it looks like we might, we can draft the best available rebounder.

Future looks bright...not to mention Detroit owes us a pic, and it's looking like we'll get a lottery pick

within 3 seasons from them. Let's go and try to win next season, give our first to Chicago we owe them, get a higher pick from Detroit possibly next season...and all of a sudden we're building depth.

Not to mention even more cap space opening up in a couple of years when Thomas gets released. Then we can afford to pay the young guys.

I'm excited. and I don't want us to suck next year. enough is enough

Just saying you want to sign a max level Free agent does not make it reality. There have been a lot of small market teams that wanted to sign top level free agents but they could not. What does happen is smaller market teams over spending for a non-max level player.

Also it will be MUCH MUCH harder this season to sign free agents whose current teams wants to keep them... Why? No more sign and trade, therefore all these players current teams can offer them more $$$ and longer contracts. SO leaving their current teams will require a pay cut.

Since these teams can't get anything in the form of sign and trade I believe most of these players whom they don't plan to resign will be traded before the trading deadline this year.

Lux tax will prevent teams from signing some players. Also those that get traded will be cheap.

Chris Paul is not coming to the Bobcats. Forget about it. I guarantee 100% he will not sign with Charlotte, and you're welcome to bet me on it.

Why would he? Our only position where we have it figured out is PG. I know you and some others hate the fact Kemba is doing a great job and is averaging 18/6/3 per game, but he's our PG of the future.

This would be like people on the Panthers forum pining for Joe Flacco to come to Charlotte.

Flacco? More like Aaron Rodgers.

If the bobcats wanted to, they can use the Amnesty clause and release Tyrus Thomas and his salary will no longer count towards their cap.

I'd love to get TWO of those bigs, honestly. I think it can be done. I doubt CP3 comes here, and plus, we have Kemba (stated above). We need some toughness down low. Biz isn't a starter, but I wouldn't mind him coming in as a firestarter for Hickson/Jefferson etc.

why the fug would we want Chris Paul? That isn't even near a position of need. Kemba and Sessions are fine at PG. Plus Paul's leg suck. Could hardly even bowl in his bowling thingy on tv
