Bobcats will amnesty F Tyrus Thomas to create the room to sign Jefferson.

 

David Aldridge ‏@daldridgetnt

Certainly would think Bobcats will move vet C Brendan Haywood ($2M this year and next), who could help good team as a low-priced backup.

 

On the heels of Al Jefferson's $40.5 million dollar contract, the Bobcats have amnestied Tyrus Thomas and may be shopping Brendan Haywood to a championship caliber team.

I'm trying to figure out why they're saying we "have to" amnesty Tyrus so that we can sign Al?

That's really the only way we can afford him.

Why trade Haywood?  I think we still need him as he's really the only TRUE backup center behind Jefferson?

 

He's pretty cheap too for a big and I think he's a solid guy in the locker room.

 

I love him on WFNZ so maybe I'm biased, he's great on the radio.

I'm not exactly sure but I seem to remember people talking about how Diop and others' contracts haven't came off the book yet maybe?

We can't afford Jefferson's contract and re-sign Henderson without amnestying Tyrus Thomas... we literally had to cut him to free up enough cap space.

keep in mind when the buzzcats are talking cap space  they need to stay out of luxury tax territory & maintain flexibility

I hate Haywood the player but he is great on the radio! He is a smart dude with a great feel for the league as a whole.

Well since we most likely gonna lose out on our pick this year(chicago) with all the teams tanking and us getting better with experience. Why not just go ahead and trade some of our contracts and pick to get a player like Rudy gay or a borderline star. I mean we could send Gordon and sessions and maybe a one of our picks to get gay or someone of that caliber. Play him at the 2 and that's would e a helluva team. I mean we would most likely be 5/6 seed this year and once we gel prolly even better the following year.

We would have a lightning quick pg in kemba. A shooter slasher in gay. Slasher hard Workinh improving mkg. A possible pick and pop midrange game with zeller and a offensively talented big man in the post. U can't tell me we wouldnt be a damn good team with that starting 5. Not only this year but the following year as well.

Idk how it would go with our contracts and everything but I feel like we could make something like this happen and I would be an extremely happy bobcat fan and would be excited as would everyone else.

Folks will say no we need wiggins or Parker and what not but folks we ain't getting in the top five this year. Just aint gonna happen. We're bad but not bad as some teams are gonna be this year. But of course this is just a dream and a great one at that. CP8789 I know u know the salary about as good as one could know. Could we make it work lol

Also I think mj wouldn't mind going over the luxury if we had to, to sign out own players if we had a squad like this

Gordon makes 12 Million, Haywood is making like 2 million. So it would have to be someone making 14 million or less and it would inhibit the team signing Kemba and Bismack in a couple of years unless the contract they pick up is only for another 1-2 years.

Gordon is Makinh 13 mill and Haywood is 2 mill and we could get rid of sessions on a good contract that's 4 mill. And like I said. I don't think jordan would mind going over the luxury to sign our own guys to put a product like that out on the court. But yet again I'm just dreaming lol

For Jordan to go into the Luxury tax the team would have to be a championship caliber team that can compete with Miami and the arena would have to be sold out this upcoming season.

I completely agree

But a lineup of
Kemba
Rudy Gay
MKG
Zeller/biyombo
Jefferson
I mean that's pretty stout. Without a doubt a playoff team and prolly could be pushing for 4/5 seed. And that would be a sellout crowd that would come watch that.

This team can't take on any more huge contracts this year unless it's an expiring contract. Rudy Gay is being paid $20 million dollars, not only is he not worth it; we can't afford that contract either.

rudy gay is pretty overrated by any metric but with that being said, pretty sure he'd be better than any 2 or 3 we have right now

I guess they view Bismack as the backup Center now with Zeller and McBob holding down the 4 spot.

MJ's punishment is that he still has to pay Tyrus every dime of that boneheaded contract
