Spurs Trade for New Center.
 
SAN ANTONIO -- The San Antonio Spurs traded forward Eric Williams and a draft pick to the Charlotte Bobcats for forward-center Melvin Ely in an exchange of veteran backups.

The Spurs said Tuesday that the draft pick is a second-round selection in 2009.

i wish we would have sent an offer of eric williams and barry for allen ray and a draft pic of theirs. oh well =(

sorry if someone made a post in the time iwas typing this, im sure itll come up in some threads

Melvin Ely is not a center. he is only 6-9.

he is however a solid low post scorer. the spurs will play him along side duncan in a role similar to malik rose's role when he was on the spurs.

i agree with this trade that the spurs have made. ely is a leaper (shot-blocking potential) & if he can work his way into the front line rotation, he will add some nice interior defense (a necessity come play-off time).

Ely can play PF and Duncan at C???

bad trade for Bobcats... gets an old SF (which they have plenty) and trading one of their more efficient PF's... since Oak is playing C... Ely can back-up May...
