One of Larry Brown's all-time favorites is on the block, but I think it's to the point where we start looking past who Larry would want as I don't think he knows what he wants sometimes himself.
A few months ago, I posted a thread about the top 10 players I thought the Bobcats would look into picking up this year ( http://www.rufusonfire.com/2010/5/2/1452920/top-10-players-likely-to-be ), and Rip Hamilton, at the time, made a lot of sense to me because of our need for offense, Larry's championship years with him, and the pattern the Bobcats had set towards building a team. At the moment, I'm not so sure. It just depends on what we give up for him I suppose, but here is a little tidbit I picked up on it over the internet........
Ford responded: "Pistons have been close on a few things with Rip, almost landed Tyson Chandler this summer ... but he's not helping himself right now. I think Charlotte is one of the few teams out there with genuine interest."
Hamilton is making $12.5 million this season and will earn the same in 2001-12 and 2012-13, although the final season is only partially guaranteed.
: So how would you guys feel about having Rip in Charlotte? He can probably provide a much needed spark to our dreadful offense.
Pick up Rip to try to save the season?
Good move, we only need a spark. (30 votes)
