The Charlotte Bobcats are deep into their rebuilding process right now. After having the worst season in NBA history in 2011-12, they made some progress in 2012-13 with 21 wins. Their core currently includes 19-year old Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (second pick in the 2012 draft), 23-year old Kemba Walker, and the big man duo of Bismack Biyombo (20 years old) and Byron Mullens (24 years old). The Bobcats could really use a big splash in free agency with their cap space to bring in some veterans.

Even if the Bobcats can't manage to attract a big-name free agent this summer, they can target expensive veterans via a trade with all of their cap flexibility. In a draft that isn't considered to be very top-heavy, the Bobcats are reportedly looking to move their pick (No. 4 overall) to bring in a veteran player. Could that player be Miami Heat big man Chris Bosh?The Boston Globe is reporting Bosh could be a prime candidate:

(Via HoopsHype)

I'm not really sure why the Heat would be thinking about trading Chris Bosh while they're in the middle of the NBA Finals, and once the Finals are over, they could be sitting on back-to-back championships if they find a way to beat the San Antonio Spurs four times. If that's the case, it doesn't seem likely they'd break up a core that has the potential to three-peat the following season.

But if they are targeting big name, high-priced veterans like this report indicates, you can see Rich Cho and Michael Jordan are serious about galvanizing this rebuilding process. A lot of teams sit around and continue to stockpile young players, hoping to either flip them for a veteran down the road or hit a homerun with the development of that young player like the Oklahoma City Thunder plan has shown. The Bobcats giving up potential in order to have more substance on their roster is a good thing.

They just have to target the right veterans to mix with their young guys as they attempt to return to the playoffs

 

What? why.. wait what..

The only reason I wouldn't is because he wouldn't be around long. And that's a huge reason.

 

So nah, not worth it. If it could somehow be guaranteed that he'd stick around, then sure. But probably not gonna happen.

No brainer, if Miami is willing to part way if Bosh. Would benefit Kemba in a ton of ways.

    • There's merit is there is discrepancy between words and action.  For instance, Saudi Arabia not being held accountable as they are saying all the right things but doing the opposite of following through.
    • Looks like our DE depth is developing nicely.  Let's see his swim move--no wait--if he starts drowning, we'll never get him back in the boat. I still say they were a bit upset with him last season.  Remember the benching during the game following the altercationwith the coach?  Some people never recover fully from a knee injury, especially if they lack the discipline to rehab properly.  I wounder if that is the case? Seriously--he is a TE.
    • http://www.msn.com/en-us/money/companies/carrier-plant-where-trump-saved-jobs-plans-layoffs/ar-BBBsNjX?li=BBmkt5R&ocid=spartandhp A plant where jobs were purportedly saved by Donald Trump ahead of his inauguration is set to make at least 600 staff cuts, many before Christmas. Carrier had opted in December 2016 not to move a number of jobs to Mexico from its Indianapolis furnace factory, following a visit to the plant by Trump. The president claimed he had convinced Carrier to retain 1,100 jobs in Indianapolis rather than outsourcing them in Mexico. And of those 1,100 jobs Trump spoke of, 300 had reportedly never been threatened with a move to Mexico—meaning a total of 800 jobs had been saved. But the company has since announced that at least 600 employees at the factory will still be laid off, with the final 290 job cuts coming just ahead of Christmas. In a filing seen by CNN, the company announced it would be making an initial 338 job cuts in July, four in October and a further 290 jobs on December 22, just three days before Christmas. During a press conference at Carrier, Trump said: “that big, big beautiful plant behind us… will be even more beautiful in about seven months from now. They're so happy. They're going to have a great Christmas. That's most important. He added: “And that these companies aren't going to be leaving anymore. They're not going to be taking people's hearts out. They're not going to be announcing, like they did at Carrier, that they're closing up and they're moving to Mexico, over 1,100 jobs. “And by the way, that number is going to go up very substantially as they expand this area, this plant. So the 1,100 is going to be a minimum number,” he said. The plant said at the time the number of jobs saved was closer to 800, but explained it would be replacing some of the jobs that were saved with an automated system in order to save money, although CEO Greg Hayes did say there would be less money saved by the company in doing so than if they moved production to Mexico. Carrier did not immediately respond to Newsweek’s request for comment. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I'm thinking of another person I'd like to see get laid off, or fired.
