Beason trade saves 705k in cap room

70 posts in this topic

People need to understand this was a good move since it was obvious Beason wasnt going to start unless there were injuries.

Beason was not going to be a Panther next year. This saves us a small amount of money this year but does nothing about the bonus money due next year (8M dead money). Panthers were going to pay either way. Thanks Hurney.

We get a 7th rounder- for a backup that would be gone next year regardless. Good deal.

Gives Beason a chance to prove himself at MLB if possible, which seems unlikely. Panthers gave him every opportunity to show he was capable and he couldn't. Big reason we lost first 2 games

I can't believe this really happened. I glanced at that thread and thought it was just a baseless rumor.

 

I'm shocked. Actually kind of pissed. I know it had to happen sooner or later though. Ohwell...

Nah, I'll go the safe route and order them online where I know they are official.

Thanks though

    • lol no one takes him seriously. He gets a courage award for bringing his hand-me-down  dad-politics into ttb while still asking to himself, "what does ttb mean again?"
    • I'm extremely pumped by this addition. It has to be the biggest addition since the team came back to Charlotte. I was too young to follow the original talented Hornets (Im sad), so I'm not going back that far. People and fans can say what they want about D12, but the man still have a lot left in his tank. And, Im tired of hearing how he doesnt fit in today's game anymore. There are only a handfull of big men today that I can really say, can shoot the ball: Davis, Towns, Embiid, Cousins and Aldridge.  Howard can still dominate! That's all that matters. The only neg I will give Howard is that I do see a lack of desire/effort to play at times. But, I believe MJ can help motivate him back to being a dominant big man again for next two years here.  Dwight Howard averaged a double-double last season: 13.5 ppg, 12.7 rpg, 1.2 bpg, and 1.4 apg.  D12 had "53", I said FIFTY-THREE double doubles last season. He had six games where he averaged 20 rebounds or more.  Guess who was the last Bobcats/Hornets era to even come close to that number.....Emeka Okafor in 2004 as a rookie with 47 double doubles. Then Big Al had 42 in 2013. Howard did that while averaging 29.7 min per game. If you count out his 2014 season where he only played in 41 games, last season was the LEAST amount of minutes played per game in Howard's career.  Only three guys (Towns, Whiteside and Gobert) averaged more double doubles than Howard in 2016. And only four other guys ( Whiteside, Drummond, DJordan and Gobert) averaged more RPG than Howard last season. Other than Towns, none of those guys mentioned above can really shoot the ball any better than Howard. But, teams still want them on their teams for big contracts.
