I was kinda hoping for that sexy three team trade to go through.

This is setting up a bigger trade for Dallas IMO because who else do they have up front to backup Dampier? Hollins shouldn't be in the NBA, liked him as a Bruin, but not a NBA player.

Oh well, I just wonder if Matt Carroll will get some burn, dude is a knock down shooter.

Diop for Matt Caroll and Ryan Hollins.


A trade that has mo impact on either team...lol I think Dallas got the better of the deal by a minimal margin. This also allows Okafor to go back to PF where he is auppose to be. Not bad on wither end.

I like Hollins...he should be a serviceable player if nothing else. Shows good hustle and reminds me of a younger Tyson Chandler...although not as good.

Diop is easily one of the worst contracts in the NBA. I can't believe Dallas found a team stupid enough to take it. They do take on Matt Carroll but that is still $3-4 million saved each year. It's not like either Diop or Carroll would play.

Don't both Diop and Carroll have MLE contracts? Caroll has 5 years left as opposed to 4 years for Diop.

The Bobcats don't have a clue what they're doing.

They have almost 25 million invested at Center with Okafor, Mohammed, Diop and the first round pick Ajinca.

The Bobcats will have have one of the best defensive frontlines with Diop.

Augustin/Felton/Wallace/Okafor/Diop with Diaw as the 6th man.

Okafor is not a PF. Watch games people.

Okafor/Diaw
Diop

when healthy

but he can still play the position. and it really doesnt matter what position you are, it has more to do with what position you can defend.

Wow....Larry Brown is diggin hard on Jordan to change this into a grindin defensive team....

Good for him..Jordan needs a coach with more of a focused vision for the team's future.

F-ck.

Knicks/Bobcats were supposed to do a Curry for Carroll/Bell swap. I've been saying this forever.

Damn it!!!!!!

According to a certain website that cannot be name but has a much nicer salary layout than here:

Carroll:

08/09: $5,050,000
09/10: $4,700,000
10/11: $4,300,000
11/12: $3,900,000
12/13: $3,500,000 (player option)


Diop:

08/09: $5,585,000
09/10: $6,031,800
10/11: $6,478,600
11/12: $6,925,400
12/13: $7,372,200 (player option)


Diop barely plays. Carroll will do the same. Dallas wins.

Decent move by Dallas I guess. Diop for the MLE was one of the worst moves of the offseason. He has not been the same since the 06/07 season. When they traded him to the Nets last season, he couldn't even win the starting job. The guy has never averaged over 20 mpg for a season, he is nothing but a backup and he isn't even that good of one.

Re: DeSagana Diop to be traded to Bobcats
 
The Mavs have like the most idiotic FO. From Felton, May and Nazr for Diop/Stack to Diop for Carroll and some other scrub. Not that it isnīt an achievement in itself to dump the stupid contract they gave to Diop. How many years does Carroll have left?
