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

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.
