The first tumble-down effect of the Charlotte Bobcats drafting forward Cody Zeller came to light Friday, when president of basketball operations Rod Higgins told the Observer the team will not extend a qualifying offer to Byron Mullens, restricting his free-agency.

 

According to Higgins, the Bobcats would have had to block out about $4 million for Mullens next season to reserve the right to match other teams’ offers for him. With Zeller having similar “stretch 4’’ qualities at power forward – i.e. shooting range out to the 3-point line -- the team decided not to make that investment in Mullens, who averaged 10.6 points and 6.4 rebounds last season.

 

Mullens, acquired in a 2011 trade with the Oklahoma City Thunder, had a strong early season last year before suffering a severe ankle sprain in late December. He missed about a month, then never quite regained his form.

 

The Bobcats will make a qualifying offer to shooting guard Gerald Henderson, Higgins said.

 

The bold print is why he was not presented with a qualifying offer

He's the ugliest human being on the planet. But other than that didnt really like his game or his soft side. It would kill me when he was always outside and jacking up threes. But he does got a stroke. He's just not dirk. But best of luck to him

Zeller pretty much meant the end of Byron here.

 

Now plz resign McBob.

Not offering Mullens makes me think we are going to target some more bigs in FA. Long over due IMO

We traded our 2nd round pick last night to OKC for Mullens 2 seasons ago... Letting him walk indicates that was a bad move as we could have added some young talent or stashed a Euro overseas for a year or two.

 

Glad we are giving Hendo his QO, but I expect another team to attempt to sign him to a long term deal and the real question will be if we match that or believe there are better options elsewhere for the value. Going to be interesting week next week when Free Agency starts.

I am thinking JJ Hickson is going to be looking for around 7-8 mil a season.  I'm on board with him.

Good moves. I like Mullens fine as a reserve, but he is not worth 4 million. Getting Henderson back is great.

Would be a very good signing for the Lakers.  We all laugh at Mullens, but hes still young and has a lot of talent.  He loves shooting the 3s and hates getting mixed in down low, but would be a good fit for the Lakers off the bench.
