Default Another Wells meeting article

Charlotte Observer
Free-agent swingman Bonzi Wells will visit the Charlotte Bobcats today, to meet the coaching staff and discuss the possibility of signing here, coach-general manager Bernie Bickerstaff confirmed Wednesday.

Wells played last season for the Sacramento Kings, where he averaged 13.3 points and 7.7 rebounds. He has also been linked to the Houston Rockets, Denver Nuggets and Miami Heat.

Able to play both shooting guard and small forward, Wells could address an obvious weakness for the Bobcats -- scoring at the wings. However, he'd also be expensive and has been high-maintenance in the past. The Bobcats already addressed the wing positions by drafting Adam Morrison with the fifth overall pick in June.

With training camp opening Oct. 3 in Wilmington, the Bobcats already have 15 players under contract, plus a qualifying offer of about $3 million to restricted free agent Melvin Ely.

-- Rick Bonnell
Not too much new news. That's the one thing I expected though. Wells is probably too high-maintenance and will want too much money to play there.

Onewickedlady, I think Ely has been given the offer to be the 16th man, he just hasn't signed yet.

I am rooting for the Bobcats to bring him in. Bonzi to Charlotte would be great. I'm in a fantasy league where you pick an Eastern Conference team and a Western Conference team and your roster consists only of those players. I've got the Suns and the Bobcats. With Brevin Knight, Raymond Felton, Gerald Wallace, Shawn Marion and potentially Bonzi Wells, I think I would double every other teams accumulated steals.
Bonzi would help me reduce the impact of when some of my guys go down. With the addition of Bonzi, I don't think any team will be able to best me in fg%, threes, rebounds, assists, steals, or blocks.
