OK, as I check and check and check for Bobcats news, I sometimes stumble upon things that make me wonder. I do not believe that we make any trades or MAJOR roster moves this year, but what if
What if decided to go all-in with Kemba. We decide he is our guy moving forward. After drafting him, the press conference almost made it sound like DJ was an afterthought. Where am I going with this? I read this morning that Atlanta is concerned that they only have 1 healthy point guard on their roster as them move into Training Camp. Here is my hypothetical proposal. What if...
What if we were to offer DJ Augustin and Boris Diaw to Atlanta for Marvin Williams and Kirk Hinrich. We would pick up a slightly taller PG that has been in the league for a while and could mentor Kemba. He's also on an expiring contract, so that is a nice thing. We also pick up Marvin Williams to shore up the SF position. He's got 2 years left on his contract, but we could then let Maggette and Williams flourish, and see if one of them sticks. If Marvin did, and flourished under Silas, in 2 years, Williams will be 27, and if we wind up drafting H. Barnes, we could offer Williams a smaller contract to stay and mentor Barnes as we amnesty Maggette next year ;-)
Both teams fill a need and get an expiring contract.
I can't wait to hear the comments on this one!
