The Bobcats are interested in free agent forward Brandon Bass, though with DeSagana Diop, Nazr Mohammed and Vladimir Radmanovic under contract, they might need a sign-and-trade to acquire him.

Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer reports that Bass has been offered a five-year deal worth more than $25 million, though it isn't clear which team made the offer (probably not Charlotte). Other teams interested in Bass include the Mavericks, Magic, and Hornets.

We have the mid-level exception available I think.

But a sign and trade would work by Dallas re-signing him and then trading him to Charlotte

8.5 points and 4.5 rebounds in 20 minutes off the bench this season. Tough, quicker than most 4s, has range to 15 feet, can finish on the break.

My pet peeve basketball phrase. You are SUPPOSED to finish on the break.

Its nuts that a guy like Brandon Bass can command 5 million bucks a year (avg). The guy is a utility player at best. The Cats need to not succumb to a weak free agent pool and develop the players they already have at the position.

The only person they have at PF other then Boris Diaw (that is completely a PF, Not a combo SF/PF) is Ajinca.

Utility players are the backbone for your superstars. Every team needs them. The deeper the bench, the deeper the playoff runs.

Seems like he'd be a better deal than Cheeseburger May.

Cheeseburgers are the last thing Sean May needs.

He's picked up more cheeseburgers than basketballs in the last 3 years.

Somehow the word "power" doesn't come to mind when thinking about Ajinca. I just hope they got him on a high calorie diet and pumpin' iron.

Me either unless he's managed to add 100 pounds of muscle magically in the last 2-3 months. Why I'm kinda Leaning towards a 2 year rental of Mcdyess. I would love to have Bass, I just don't think were going to go over the cap and sign him to the Full MLE. I think we might be able to get Mcdyess for a little less then we can Bass.

we arent signing any FA players worth mentioning, unless we throw MAD cash at them (which we don't have).. so the only way we upgrade is by trading one of our key pieces- Wallace or Bell or Vlad..

Actually we can go over the limit, ex. the Bulls, but we probably won't do it because if we don't get back under we get a cap penalty and that would suck since the Salary Cap is being lowered next year. So we would be essentialy broke (in a way). However I don't really want a big named player. I want Felton to be resigned and a good backup SF. I really feel Derrick Brown can feel the void now at Power Forward even though he is somewhat undersized for that position after seeing him play in the Summer League. I am still wondering what we will do with Juwan Howard and Cartier Martin since they are both Free Agents. They alread let May and Singletary walk, and are working on resigning Felton. So we should actually have at least enough cash to give a player the veteran minimum. Or maybe even a mid-level expectation offer.

Bass' Contract is 4 years for 18 million dollars. So 4.5 million per season on average.
