The team is building towards the 2013-14 season. The season after next as of right now we will only have 5 players under contract with 4 of them still on their rookie deals. Thomas, Mullens, Biyombo, Walker, Henderson. Take those 5 players with this years lottery pick, more than likely 2013 lottery pick and Portlands 2013 first rounder and you will have 8 players (7 on their rookies deals) and a ton of cap room to fill in the rest of the roster with veteran talent. Im guessing thats the way they would like to build the roster, but this is all hypothetical as Im sure there will be a trade somewhere.

Who will be our coach then? I wonder.

I get the sense that when you say "veteran talent," you also mean "all star talent." Which, unfortunately, unless its like a 3rd or 4th alternate for one all star game, the ego will be too big to come to Charlotte because they don't want to play small market.

But I could be wrong.

On the original topic, beggars can't be choosers. How long ago was it we were complaining we didn't have enough bigs? Now look at us, we got em, and it didn't fix our problem.

I just can't get over how much Tyrus Thomas has regressed. He's a shell of the player he was in 2009-2010.

Maybe last night was the point of a new turnaround?

We can only hope.

13 pts., 9 rbs., 9 blks.

Solid. For what he's getting paid he needs numbers like these night in, night out.
