The trade sent Corey Maggette to Detroit for Ben Gordon and a future 1st round pick.  Corey Magette signed by the spurs and was just released and is planning to retire.

How the Bobcats have turned

Brandon Wright into 2 first round draft picks:

 

Bobcats draft Brandon Wright then trade his draft rights for = Jason Richardson

 

Jason Richardson + Jared Dudley traded to Phoenix = Raja Bell + Boris Diaw

 

Vlad Rad + Raja Bell traded to Warriors = Cap'n Jack

 

Cap'n Jack traded to the Bucks = Correy Maggette + 1st round (Bismack Biyombo)

 

Correy Maggette traded to Detroit = Ben Gordon + 1st round (TBD)

I more excited that this team is building confidence.  It still baffles how "fans" argue we should tank the season before it begins.   No disrespect intended but our young players are developing.  Winning doesn't mean we're not going to get better next year as well. Winning means we're only going to get better next year.  It also means we can bargain for some of the FA's we might want because we're winning.

I still can't believe Detroit made that deal. At the time I knew we were getting away with highway robbery

I see it as a wasted trade since we could not land a real starter

and you saw Maggs as a 'real' starter??

we traded Steven Jackson (who was cancerous at that point) for Maggs and BIZ - then flipped Maggs for Gordon and another 1st rounder

how is that wasted? your statement conflicts with all logic

I dont see how anyone can flip this into a negative.  I would take Bismack OVER Wright for starters, then you add in Ben Gordon and a 1st round pick?

 

Cmon folks.  This was a genious move on the Cats part.  Ive always felt we have traded well, just not drafted well.

Bismack Biyombo is a bust, and yes i will take MAGGs over Bismack any time of the day... In the NBA draft picks a worthless when compared to proven players unless it is the top 3 picks. Gordon is a shell of himself and was only acquired due to a bad contract.

you would take a retired (retiring) player in Maggs over +7 rebounds and +2 blocks a game in BIZ?

so you would have nothing rather than something (+ upside)??

 

 

 

there is a 0% chance i continue this conversation..
