® = restricted

Power Forwards:
Josh Smith - 17.4 pts - 8.7 rebs - seeking Top Doller $$$
David West - 17.4 pts - 7.8 rebs - probably will stay with Pacers
Paul Millsap - 15.2 pts - 7.3 rebs - available
Antawn Jamison - 8.9 pts - 4.5 rebs - available
Earl Clark - 8.3 pts - 6.3 rebs - probably will stay with Lakers
Elton Brand - 7.9 pts - 6.6 rebs - old, but still usable
Branden Wright - 6.8 pts - 3.2 rebs - still young
Cartier Martin - 6.8 pts - 2.4 rebs - still young
Lamar Odom - 4.0 pts - 5.8 rebs - meh
Louis Amundsen - 1.6 pts - 2.4 rebs - could be some cheap 'energy' off bench
Chase Budinger ® - 11.8 pts - 3.5 rebs - possible
Byron Mullens ® - 12.5 pts - 7.8 rebs - possible 20/10 guy in the future

Centers:
Andrew Bynum - 18.7 pts - 11.8 rebs - will cost MAX
Al Jefferson - 17.7 pts - 9.4 rebs - wll cost MAX
Dwight Howard - 16.3 pts - 11.9 rebs - will cost MAX
J.J. Hickson - 13.1 pts - 10.4 rebs - will cost a lot of $$$, will he come home to NC roots?
Chris Kaman - 12.0 pts - 6.1 rebs - probably will go to a winning team
Samuel Dalembert - 7.0 pts - 5.8 rebs - a Vet that is exactlly what we hope Biz turns into- mentoir?
Jason Maxiell - 6.8 pts - 5.6 rebs - big body that will play defense and rebound
Andris Biedrins - 0.5 pts - 3.0 rebs - had a good year about 3 years ago
Nikola Pekovic ® - 16.0 pts - 9.0 rebs - will cost a lot to make it happen $$$
Tiago Splitter ® - 10.4 pts - 5.8 rebs - probably will stay with Spurs
Dejuan Blair ® - 5.4 pts - 3.9 rebs - out of rotation looking for minutes
Timofey Mozgov ® - 2.9 pts - 2.7 rebs - out of rotation looking for minutes

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

bP's list of possibles:
Paul Millsap - will have to throw MAX $$ and out bid everyone
Samuel Dalembert - will have to make attractive offer that most teams won't give him
Antawn Jamison - dangle the homecoming for him again
Nikola Pekovic ® - offer MAX deal and a city that will love you forever
Byron Mullens ® - bring back and make focal point of offense
Dejuan Blair ® - offer a starting spot and decent $$
Timofey Mozgov ® - offer a ton of minutes backing up Biz

bP's probable outcome:
we will throw out a MAX contract to Pekovic, Bynum, Jefferson, Howard, Smith, West and Millsap but none stick.

We end up resigning Mullens and overpay for Blair and Dalembert.. sorry..

LOL you think that Cho will throw a max contract to Pekovich, West, and Milsap????????????????????????

WHAT?!?!?

I can almost understand Pekovich, but a max contract to David West and Paul Millsap... LOL

I don't mean to sound rude here, but honestly that is extremely laughable.

I honestly think they could get Bynum believe it or not. He doesn't give a poo about anything but money. Now if Houston is willing to give him the max that's another story, but if nobody else is willing to risk it with his knees and the Bobcats will.....Also, you have to ask yourself do you want to commit the max to Bynum....

I like Bynum and I miss his smoothness on offense so much, but I would not even consider giving him a max contract. Maybe he gets healthy, and maybe he doesn't. Judging by his history -- he won't ever be fully healthy and something like that could cripple your franchise financially. Is Andrew Bynum worth the max if he is healthy every year? No doubt (best offensive big in the NBA when healthy). It just doesn't look like he will ever be healthy.

I agree with this completely. Was a huge Bynum fan when he was in L.A., and still want to see the kid do well. Doesn't help that he just literally doesn't give a poo about anything but getting paid and partying though....

I think any team going after Pekovic will have to include an poison pill of some sort to make it happen. It's going to take a lot of money too. Probably around 11-14 million a season plus the poison pill year, which might surprise some on here. Not sure if he's worth that kind of money though.

Byron Mullens could become a 20/10 guy if he took 30 shots a game, and he almost does already. 7 of those boards would be offensive rebounds off his own threes.

I wouldn't. He could be a good bench player thoe. But I'm not maxing a bench player.

Idk man. I think that he's worthy of a max contract. Should probably give him, Hendo, 32 year old David West, JJ Hickson, etc all max contracts.

I would like to see Mullens paired with a true, good, center and see how he plays. Obviously it would be nice to get two of these bigs, but if we only get one, and keep Mullens, I'd be semi-OK. It's time for that advantage of having Jordan as the GM to play out. Maybe money+Jordan+possible name change can bring guys here.

I know everyone wants titles, but maybe we can snag someone that wants to find a team, and make it HIS team. You can be a superstar on the Bobcats while just another player on some other teams, lol.
