Four way deal:
Why Charlotte would do it: Al Jefferson is in full beast mode, yet the Bobcats are barely ahead of the Pistons, Cavs, and Kincks in the Eastern Conference playoff race. Their success is owed to a stingier-than-expected defense that has tailed off as of late. Enter Asik. Parting with Zeller so quickly seems more than worthwhile in exchange for a big man who can anchor the team’s already solid defense. Asik won’t create ideal floor spacing on offense, but because of where missed shots on post-ups tend to fall, he will still provide tremendous value on that end with his offensive rebounding.
Wilson Chandler is more of a slasher than the spot-up shooter the Bobcats need alongside Jefferson right now, but his acquisition would help make things slightly less congested inside. Chandler’s arrival also boosts a really thin wing rotation that has recently included Anthony Tolliver and Chris Douglas-Roberts. Chandler, MKG, and Gerald Henderson wouldn’t make people confuse the Bobcats for the Spurs, but it’d certainly make Charlotte deeper and more versatile.
With a starting unit of Asik, Jefferson, Chandler, Henderson, and Kemba Walker, supported by a bench consisting of Biyombo, Josh McRoberts, MKG, and Ramon Sessions, Charlotte would be a far more interesting team to watch come playoff time.
