You would think we would hear something around 8 p.m. or so.

 

Not necessarily, he will still need time to weigh his options, he would be dumb to jump and sign somewhere before he sees where Dwight lands and who is despearte.

I'm not going to lie, I'd be a little upset... It's one thing to show interest in someone... but then to bring in a player and pretend to sign him seems very shallow...

I just find it weird that they are "trying" now.


I kinda feel the same but if that was the plan wouldn't you think theyd try throwing D12 name in instead of Al? I mean it'd be more appealing to the fans and a lot easier to get by it. I mean there's no way we would get Howard. I think this move is serious. Remember the rumor that we're ready to throw a huge offer at him too.

I'm not talking about if he is signing or not, I'm talking about how the meeting went overall...

When players/teams have meetings, you usually hear how they went.

Yeah.....

But Howard could have easily said that he wasn't interested in coming to CLT to even talk...

I also do not recall us being ready to offer Howard a contract.

There was a lot of speculation based on our coaching staff that we may offer Howard, but I never heard Chris Ford, Woj, etc... say that we were going to offer Howard a contract...

Do you have a link?

I was referring the contract offer to Al. That pretty much means there's more truth to this than lies.

And like you said, Howard could've easily said he wasn't interested. Exactly, the discussion would've been done and our fans would've said "at least they tried". It'd be that simple if that was what the FO was aiming for.

Good point, I am searching Al Jefferson on twitter every so often because I know Bonnell will be the last to know anything.

It's really quiet, so I'm imagining he's still in Charlotte probably getting wined and dines by Bobcats VP's. lol

That's why I was wondering if it was possibly a PR move...

Bonnell doesn't even know anything yet, they could still be in the meeting.

He just got off a contract paying him 15 million a season and that's what he's going to get here in Charlotte if he signs.
