The Bobcats are expected to target Jonny Flynn to help fill out their roster before the end of the season, according to Peter Vecsey.

Flynn spent part of this year playing in Australia and reportedly drew interest from the Lakers and Grizzlies at some point this season. Despite being the No. 6 overall pick just five years ago, Flynn is no more than an end-of-the-bench player at this point in the NBA.


So... Pargo or Flynn?

Hmmm well he did average 13 and 4 as a rookie, then really didn't get a chance to do anything after that.

Pargo has had some solid games for us, but there's no real upside there. Flynn, on the other hand still has potential in my opinion, and as unlikely as it is, there is still a shot that he re-captures what little success he had his rookie season and lives up to his potential.

I like Flynn, his play in college reminded me a lot of Lawson's. I was pretty surprised that his game didn't transition to the NBA level right away.

However, his rookie year was about on par with Kemba's.

Flynn is absolute garbage, anyone thinking he still has "potential" hasn't been paying attention. His 2011 season was literally one of the worst in NBA history. He is clueless on defense, isn't a facilitator, can't shoot, and hasn't shown the same burst ever since his injury (not that he ever really understood how to use it anyway). Couple that with his small size and he brings basically nothing to the table. Considering all the PGs that went after him, he's one of the biggest PG busts ever. He's not even a competent player in australia, which is quite literally a bush league. If he's brought in to only sit at the end of the bench, fine, but as a player that's all he is and all he ever will be.

His rookie season was better than Kemba's rookie season. His sophomore season was about on par with Kemba's rookie season (look at the percentages, the per 36, etc). Flynn has had injury troubles and that's the main reason why he didn't develop. He had a solid rookie season, and then majorly regressed during his sophomore season and has only gotten 29 games in very inconsistent minutes since. I'll give ya that he's an awful defensive player; was one of the worst defensive PG's starting in the NBA his rookie year.

It's pretty clear that you have somewhat of an agenda against him. Perhaps he beat your favorite team in college? I'm not sure, but the part that I put in bold was the single most ridiculous thing that you said. He's an All-Star in Australia and he's putting up 17/6 in 33 mpg. Obviously he's not tearing the league up and taking it by storm, but to say that he's "not even a competent player in Australia". Yeah ok lol.

*P.S. I'm not a big Flynn fan, and have never really cared for him, but I'd like to bring him in for a 10 day.*

that syracuse/uconn 6OT game like 5 years ago is one of the best basketball games I have ever seen. Pros included.

I always liked Flynn. Thought he was going to be a beast.
