Man, I really don't understand this signing.
To me, it means one of three things:
1. Okafor is playing PF, with Nazr at C.
2. Wallace is playing PF, with Okafor at C.
3. Davidson (or one of the other PFs) has shown so much progress, that we feel like we already have a great starting PF.
Also, I wonder if Weaver isn't going to be under a lot of pressure to show he's NBA material right away (which isn't to say great), or be cut by midseason.
I could be jumping to conclusions, but my reading of the team makes me think we didn't need another swingman.
SOMEONE will pay for THIS!
I really don't know anything about the guy. Another swingman though? 3rd guy to bring the ball up? I certainly don't want to see anything like the Dudley/Gerald Wallace tandem at PG we had when Ray got hurt and McInnis was high last year. Looks like a slasher/transition guy from the Michigan State website and wikipedia. I don't see it but oh well In Larry I trust.
All I can think is that LB and the other coaches can see what the team needs more than we do just looking at stat sheets. I don't understand it either but I also trust LB....
......Go Bobcats!!!!! (Hornets) ..
Yeah, like last year Sam pitching a fit for another big, then we traded for Nazr then that didn't really help. This year LB says ok yeah we'll take Shannon Brown off the streets cause we can use him in this way, I say to myself, Larry knows so I'm fine with it.
All I can think is this team is going to look so different this year with basically the same core and we've just added to it. I'm fine with this although as a fan I'm going "Get Me A Damn STARTING PF, NOW!!!"
Perhaps there's something in the works tradewise we're not aware of?
That's about the only way I can see this making sense. Either that or Weaver hasn't shown enough for them to think he's more than a D-League player.
I have a HARD time believing they are not strongly considering/TRYING to move at least 1 of:
Gerald Wallace or Raymond Felton
Either these guys are coming in as combo pg insurance or athletic swingman insurance. That or the Bobcats are making me even more retarded by trying to understand their plan.
Some wing has got to be on their way out unless they are just in love with DJ to the point that they are shipping off Felton.
Either way, this NEEDS to be a move towards getting a BONAFIDE power forward.
