UPDATED: Confirmed. Bobcats Exploring Trade for Evan Turner

211 posts in this topic

Not much legitimacy here, but at least an interesting rumor to think and talk about. What's yall take?

"There is plenty of trade speculation surrounding the Bobcats' future plan, but Sidery Sports chief writer Evan Sidery provided an intriguing trade scenario involving the Bobcats, the Houston Rockets and the Philadelphia 76ers.

In the proposed trade, the Bobcats would receive point guard Jeremy Lin, forward Donatas Motiejūnas and small forward Evan Turner. The Sixers, on the other hand, will get Ben Gordon's expiring contract, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and Omer Asik, whom Sixers general manager Sam Hinkie really wants to acquire."

Well we certainly get the short straw on that one. Looks great for Houston and Philly though.

1) Sounds horrible. Turner is a facade.

2) How often have any of these obscurely rumored trades ever happened between two teams, let alone three?

If we drafted a 19 year old kid at the #2 spot only to give up on him one year later I'm going to lose my poo

No sir, I don't like it. I don't want to lose MKG unless it's just a no-brainer.

    • You miss the point. Taylor was here before. We picked him because of what he could do for our wide receivers not because he had some great knowledge no other person had on the staff. Shula and Rivera and Gettleman studied multiple college systems for months before signing Taylor or drafting McCaffrey or Curtis and would have drafted the same whether Taylor was here or not. They liked the way Taylor developed McCaffrey which showed his talent but Stanford's offense wasn't Taylors idea or unique to him. Shula has a connection to Taylor as early as when Shula was at Alabama.  The debate was whether Taylor was chosen to replace Shula because Shula didn't know what to do to run a college offense and if he screwed up Taylor would replace him. And that Taylor was the reason and most influential in getting McCaffrey. I said it wasn't even close to the truth and this plan predated Taylor and was more thorough and we'll thought out. Everything since then just confirms I was right once again like usual.  
    • Assholes should've never taken it away in the first place.  Me and a couple buddies had a hookup and were all hyped up and planned out going to it... then the NBA had to get all political and take it out on the city of Charlotte and the fans -- which made no fuging sense.  Seriously doubt we'll even get the chance to go again.
    • 6'6" 255.  He'll definitely have some good mentors with JP, CJ and the rest of the D-Line crew. 255 he'll need to put some weight on don't you think?
