...the GM, Bosh is a free agent. He's from Texas, but he played college ball at GT.
With what they already have at other positions, an elite post player might make the Bobcats a top three team in the East next season.
What's it going to take to get him in Charlotte? Who do you let go, who do you get rid of?
in that universe i propose nazr and chandler expiring contracts or diaw and nazr
Sure we can have Bosh. When pigs fly. He wants maximum contract, we don't have the money. Only guys I want gone from this team are Graham and Diop. Everyone else is fine in my books.

The Bobcats have more than enough expendable parts, but of course they probably don't have the revenue stream right now since they are losing money. Don't know how the cap factors in, or if it does. I'm not playing GM with money.
Only the following guys ARE NOT "expendable":
Everyone else is expendable. Expendable doesn't mean they should all be dumped because you need players to have a team, but a few of any of those not listed could go, especially any two or three of the Chandler, Muhammad, Diaw, Ratliff, and Diop group.
If Diaw comes in next season at least in equal shape to when he was in Phoenix, I'd be willing to move him to the not expendable group, but as long as he's out of shape, I think he's lazy and worth dumping if Bosh would come to Charlotte if we had the money.
That starting line up could get along just fine without an out of shape Diaw.
It's not what we have to offer, it's convincing Bosh Charlotte is where he wants to be. The ball is in his court, not the Raptors.
My first thought would be to start out with MJ wining and dining his agent, but after looking that up he also happens to be the same agent for Flash (Henry Thomas - Creative Artists Agency).
After seeing that my vote goes to Slam's alternate universe.

I'd trade Chandler's expiring for a first or 2nd rounder. Chandler's picking it up, but we need the money to re-sign Felton and Thomas
I would have to disagree with some on my whole expendable lists:
Wallace (has to stay, first all-star, fan favorite, franchise face)
Felton/Augustin (Together, they provide 20/10/5 with solid defense)
Tyrus/UPS/Hendo (all are young and show that they can be at least solid talent)
Nazr (has proven that he can be an extremely effective security blanket, I think we should keep him for the remainder of his contract and look to resign him to fill Theo's shoes)
The rest can go. Even Jack--he's old and has a contract that gets worse. His value is probably the highest now as it will be for the rest of his career so we should look to move him to a team for some young talent.
I would move Jack for Bosh in a heartbeat. Nazr too even though I like Nazr. However if I were the Raptors I would rather have David Lee then either of those guys because he is younger.
aint no way in hell we can get bosh. he is pairing up one of the other max free agents. i wish. but i think we can get something for tyson next year for sure. but nazi not being expendable?? c'mon i love him but he is older and battered.
