Two trades that I want to happen, that totally can happen, and totally SHOULD happen are:
Jack/2nd Rounder for OJ Mayo and Hasheem Thabeet
Crash and Diop for Dalembert, Casspi, and Landry
With the first thread now eclipsing 62 pages with 610 posts, it's time to start up a new one.
Again folks, please keep all BOBCATS RELATED ideas, rumors, links, etc. in THIS thread. Trades not concerning the Cats can be placed in their own thread if a need arises! Now, baaaaaack to the topic.
I REALLY like your first trade Swedd. That would be great for us. Btw, thanks for the new thread. After that last merge I had just given up trying to figure out where I had stopped reading.
I haven't been on in awhile any new rumors that we are involved in? B/c our players havent been the same this year, the lack of effort is aparent. It just seems like our guys dont have the heart or effort they displayed at this time last year when we made that great run. Well all i can do is hope jordan has an ace up his sleave.....

I think Jack is just what they need. Mayo they don't like, and Henry (a guy I love) isn't good enough for that role, yet.
Randolph isn't getting any younger, and may leave. They're locked into Gay and Conley for big money, and Gasol will be up for an extension soon. They simply don't have room to keep him and seemingly don't want to anyway. Jack gives them an undeniable presence and edge that can finally push them into the playoffs they they just barely missed last year and desperately want to achieve. Thabeet is a bum and is only included for salary purposes, I'm sure it could be worked around to be more appealing of course!
and truDUKE, I haven't really heard much since the season started, but I'm sure they'll pick up soon, with today being the 15th.
yer i like the first deal swedd. Not sure if they would trade for jack tho, he is a bit of a headcase and may take rudy gay out the frame a bit which they dont want happening
I saw this posted on Bill Simmon's Twitter:
Thoughts? Chauncey is a better PG than DJ, and he is a team option next year which is good, but we lose Diaw, which would mean a ton more Nazr, Kwame, and TT which might not be that good of a thing.
