Default Bobcats looking to buy Diaws contract out.

I wouldn't doubt it at all as he has been absolutely horrific this year.

So essentially buying him out would save some $ this season but the amount of cap space opening up this summer would be the same.

We're in talks with the Nets to swap him for Farmar/Petro/Houston 1st. Those two players combined would add about 7.5 million to our payroll next year, but if we move DJ then Farmar obviously would fill a valuable need. The Houston 1st is lottery protected until 2016; if they don't make the playoffs by then it reverts to a 2nd in 2017.

Currently that pick is at 19th and would be conveyed.

I think this is stellar return for Boris.

I'd be ecstatic if we pull that off.

Dwight opting in for his final year really helped screw the pooch on that deal.

Looking at what CLE got for Sessions all I can think is there just wasn't a good deal to be made. Standing pat isn't sexy but it looks like that was the right thing to do.
