Buried in this informative article. Extensions for the '08 draft class have to happen by the 18th. Augustin not mentioned.
D.J. White, Bobcats (29th)
The Bobcats, according to a source, have some interest in extending White, one of the few bright spots (9.9 points, 5.8 rebounds) in an otherwise terrible season so far in Charlotte. A final decision is expected this week.

For White, I think I'm for an extension. I'm not 100% for it, but he's playing well enough to warrant extension talk. Plus, Diaw will not likely be on the team next year, TT could be amnestied unless he proves he's capable, and Biyombo, while I'm a fan of, is at least two years away from coming into his own.
White would make 3 million next year if extended or in other words, would cost 1 million more against the cap. I think he's worth 3 million next year.

Higgins just called (Thad) DJ's agent about an hour ago asking what DJ wants. Answer.... market value of guys with similar numbers but will get back on tommorrow.
at the golden state game i was closely watching him and kemba, they play very well together on a personality level and dj is really helping kemba learn on the court. everyone on the team really likes him and he is a "silent" leader. the only problem is that we are going to have to pay dj what the market says he's worth and to the bobcats at the present moment we should not commit the money to dj. i would like to see us do him right after all the crap he has endured during his first 4 years. i would like to see him sent to a team in a good situation. in other words, not to a team like sacramento or toronto.
but you are right swedd.
only thing cba changed is players 8-15 will be getting far less 1-7 still getting paid.
I'd extend both DJ White and Augustin. White for maybe 2 years, Augustin for 3. Kemba Walker has not shown me enough to say I think he is the better player. He's had 2 good game, but otherwise is shooting HORRIBLY and turning the ball over too much. Augustin is having good games regularly, and going 15 and 7 is not uncommon at all. Between the two, Kemba may be the better name, but right now and until Kemba steps up, Augustin is the better player.
