another PF linked to Bobcats: Brandon Bass

16 posts in this topic

 

Also potentially in the mix for Bass are the Bobcats, who are desperate to add depth at power forward as they attempt to make a run to just their second playoff berth in franchise history. Charlotte owes its own draft pick to Chicago, if it winds up landing outside the Top 10, but does have Detroit’s pick, if it lands outside the Top 8.

The Bobcats own Portland’s pick, which will wind up late in the first round because of the way Portland has played, and that’s the pick that would most likely wind up with Boston in a Bass deal.

 

Monroe > Gibson > Bass

 

would rather not give up a 1st round pick for Bass- even if it is gonna be at the end of the 1st round

I think Bass would fit in nice here, I think hes worth a late 1st round pick.  Its not like charlottes going to do anything sensible with the pick anyways. I'd love to have Glen Robinson III at #28 though.

Ok, maybe Monroe over Bass, just don't like the fit.

Get the bad feeling that Cat brass are getting into a "Lets do a deal, so we can say we did a deal" mode. And that's ususally when they screw something up.

do you guys feel that there's a little more "tanking" than usual? It seems that everyone in the EC not named Miami are sellers. I've seen rumors even linking Pacers players like Stephenson and George Hill to the Bobcats. 

 

fug the NBA draft lottery. We'd probably get screwed anyway. Aquire some nice pieces and get while the gettin is good.

I actually think Bass would be a good fit here. Powerful PF with respectable defensive game, hustle, and a decent mid range shot. All I can think about is how often Cody Zeller has a wide open mid range from the elbow and we all know he is going to miss. Bass could definitely knock those down.

Brandon Bass is a solid player. As long as you aren't giving up much. If you don't like Bass you probably don't know much about him.

    • Is this dude a real life person or an alt of @GOOGLE JIM BOB COOTER that is a living joke exemplifying the white culture thread? 
    • 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 (35.6 MPG). Then Big Al had 42 in 2013 (35.0 MPG). 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.    D12 will be a beast this upcoming season!
