The Bobcats are just going to wait out, or so it seems.

 

It's not a bad idea, you can do a sign and trade deal revolving around him at anytime and since the team can match any offer that he gets; it appears they are just going to play the waiting game to see if he comes down from his price.

I want nothing to do with that short Ballhog that plays no defense.

 

Monta can't play we other PG and I don't want him fuging with Kemba's development.

 

I'd rather start Taylor and sign Rip Hamilton then over pay for Monta.

 

After seeing some games from the Summer League, I'd agree with you man. Jeff Taylor is ballin right now, plus my brother is a big Rip fan so that would all be awesome.

Taylor was good last year too in the summer league, then the regular season came around and.... not so much.

 

While I agree he could be good, we need to see him contribute in the regular season.  Right now he's just the Bobcats equivalent of the Panthers' training camp heroes we have each year.

i would disagree with that comparison.. Panther's TC heros go onto contribute NADA and are usually cut by the regular season..

 

last year Taylor averaged 6ppg 1ast 2 rebs

and at the end of the year he was 8ppg with %.400 from the 3pt line-- off the bench

 

Im not saying he's a world-beater and should be starting- but comparing him to Charley Martin, Kenneth Moore and Ryne Robinson.. thats just wrong

Not an exact comparison obviously.  I have no doubt he's solid off the bench, but as a starter, it's still too early.  Glad he's on our team though.

We can't be a turnstile like the Bucks' have been.  Get out a contract to Hendo soon, continue to trim the fat and build with depth.

I really am wondering if annual money is the real issue or contract length. A couple media folks have said they are far apart on money but honestly he is clearly somewhere between 7.5-9 range so they can't be too far apart.
