Default New depth chart?

Soooo. Apparently we traded Gerald Wallace and Mohammed for nothing this deadline.\

New team:


Augustin - Livingston - Collins
Henderson - Carroll - Peterson
Jackson - McGuire - Brown
Diaw - Najera - Cunningham - White
Brown - Pryzbilla - Diop


Seriously?

Cunningham is much better than Najera, but the Bobcats bench is horrendous now. Przybilla is probably a better starter than Kwame though.

You forgot Tyrus Thomas, so we'd have to cut two players to make this work, probably Peterson and White.

I thought he was out for the rest of the season? That's why I didn't include him anyway.

Even if he is, we don't get a roster exception for him.

Prez was a nice pickup to back Kwame.

I feel for you guys , one of my fav players was Wallace.

But MJ did the move for the future , and it was a smart move.

--------------------
Once Wallaces contract is up , I would not doubt he thinks about returning to the Bobcats ... Why ?? The bobcats gave him a chance, and he considered it home.

It had to be difficult for the organization to let him go.

I find watching Henderson playing more interesting than watching Wallace and Naz.

Plus it really is about the right time to hand Henderson more playing time, so does Tyrus too.

Now I'm just hoping Henderson can develop some range behind the 3pt line and free throw. He already has very solid midrange jump shooting ability. Typically 3pt shooting and FT are by far the easiest to train, IMO. Just look at GW, he couldn't hit 3s when he was drafted and didn't hit enough FTs as a SF. Same to Boris Diaw as well, as he learned how to shoot 3pters after several seasons.

The only thing that troubles me though is that I heard we're waiving Derrick Brown, Mcguire, and Collins, to be able to absorb Dante Cunningham, DJ White, Sean Marks, and Morris Peterson which really doesn't make much sense.

Compare Dante Cunningham, DJ White with Derrick Brown and Dominic Mcguire, ewwwww... I'm not so sure. There are both upsides and downsides...

I'm pretty sure that most of those guys will get dealt this offseason.

I'm going to miss Wallace, but the move is allowing Henderson to become the starting SG and it let's Stephen Jackson play at his natural spot at the SF. Henderson has been playing well and its time to see what he can really do as the starting SG.

I'm going to the game tonight. It'll be interesting to see what they do with the player intros. They show a montage on the screen that is full of G-dub highlights and then he's the last person introduced. Someone's been up all night re-working it I bet.

D. Brown, McGuire and collins have already been waived and I believe that a certain amount of time must pass before we can pick them up again. Marks and Mo Pete are being waived. Pryzbilla may be bought out before playing even one game for us. We'll be playing with half a team till the FO figures out what to do next. This info was in today's Charlotte Observer. I'm not at all enthusiastic about tonight's game but I'll watch, anyway.

Can someone explain to me why the Bobcats roster doesn't look like this?

Felton/Augustin/Livingston
Sjax/Henderson/Livingston
Gwallace/Henderson
TyThomas/Diaw
Chandler/Brown


Isn't that team actually good? I don't understand...

Very simple my friend, Felton now plays for the Knicks, Wallace just got traded, and Chandler plays for the Mavericks.

No really, it's just business I can assume. I kind of guess it made sense now to trade Wallace. He's injury prone, he doesn't look as healthy now as he used to (he looks OLD). I just think JAX is a bigger problem for us. As for Felton and Chandler....Felton's agent was demanding too much money, and Chandler sucked ass when he played here - probably Larry Brown's fault.
