Pardon me, the eternal wet blanket, but I would be chary of throwing Walker into the fire. I hated when Paul Silas started Davis Wesley over Barron Davis when Davis was a rookie and even going into Davis's second season. But the situations are almost reversed. Wesley was a combo guard forced to play the point, whereas Davis was a true point guard. In the Bobcats' case, Walker is a smallish combo guard being forced to play point, and Augustine is the true point guard. If you let Augustine get away and Walker struggles, we're really screwed (and I mean more than usual). Point guards are so valuable that decent back-ups are at a premium. Do you really want to try this act without a net? I just think this situation is more delicate than the discussion seems to indicate.
