We couldn't really afford Barnes or Thompson, plus they will need those guys for the sign and trade... but I'd happily take that $9 million dollar expiring contract that Beidrins has and a 2015 first rounder... what does GSW want back? Cash considerations or something.

 

I haven't a clue as to what they want back, nothing maybe since they need to clear all of the cap space to afford Howard. The reason they are doing this is so that they don't have to do a sign and trade with LA. So if it takes giving up one of the guys for Howard then it's a good move if Howard does indeed sign with them.... If not = ouch.

In that case, I would try to work out a deal for Harrison Barnes and Beidrins, and if both parties agree to a trade, just retract Henderson's QO. Barnes will only be on a three million dollar contract for next year, so we could easily afford both him and Beidrins, and when it's all said and done; we would have around $28 million dollars in cap room for the 2014 free agency class.

Barnes starting at SG? I'd do it in a heartbeat, lol. Heck I'd even give up Portland's pick in to make it a first round swap plus Beidrins and Barnes. It gives the Bobcats 4 lottery pick players that have NBA experience plus puts them in really good shape for next off season. The lower pick helps with salary next season as well and gives the Bobcats more flexibility going into the first season as the Hornets.

If they would give up a first for beidrins. Do it, but they might want someone to take multiple contracts for a pick.

No, they are offering future first round picks. lol That's how desperate they are to get rid of these contracts. Is that all it would take for you if you Owned the Bobcats?

Lol exactly.

Why would we be giving them 1st rounder(s)?

They should be giving us the pick(s)

You usually trade picks for expiring contracts... it's not a new concept.

Can I get an AMEN!

Give us Barnes, add another quality player, and say bye bye to the 2014 draft. I can live with that.

PG: Kemba

SG: Barnes

SF: Kidd-Gilchrist / Taylor

PF: Cody / Biz

C : Al Jefferson

That's hell of a lineup!

Well Bonnell pretty much shot down the idea saying he doubt it happens... but it was a good overrall idea that the Huddle came up with and agreed upon.

I know, but in this situation where a team is trying to move players to make a run at a big name they're the one who needs to package pick(s) with it.

Yeah, I didn't realize they weren't going to S&T route anymore.

It's an overall, very good idea. The Bobcats should definitely explore the idea.

It doesn't immediately make us better (which allows us a good draft pick), and it keeps us out of any cap issues that we might face in two years.
