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.

5 yr. $25 million contract, doesn't seem like we have that sort of room.

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.
