No Carmelo, Chauncey, Thompson, or TJ. Just dust, and a lot of cap space.

Mike, if you are cash strapped, you should not have bought the damn team.

im kinda upset with this. i know it will help us in the long run with the cap space but in retrospect i dont think anyone would like getting matt carrol and najera for okafor. i know it had everything to do with $$$, but i was hoping we could get a decent impact player for our team with damp.

Thanks Bobcats. Way to run an organization. i feel a lot better about my decision to buy season tickets, knowing that you didnt have to go over the luxury cap and spend money. It makes my decision to spend money on you a whole lot easier.

So let me get this straight. Had Okafor, traded him for Chandler, traded him for Dampier, cut him for money. solid work guys. go play some golf.

So we ended up swapping TC's expiring (and Ajinca!) of 13 million, took on Carroll & Nagera's combined 17.5 million over 3 years just to get under the tax.

I do think we were after CP and I commend the FO for taking the gamble...but damn.

...and in turn gives us an "intimidated" PG.

Just kidding! I liked Flip. We could do worse with that 2.2 I guess. That C position still looks mighty pitiful though.

Well, I hope we are pleasantly surprised by the developement of DJ, Hendo and UPS. For us to get back to the playoffs, they are going to have to step it up.

Hey...Earl Watson is still out there. He'd be a good deal at 2.2 million.

Yeah I think this is a case of gambling to see what we could get, and not getting anything, so now we cut our losses and move on. This isn't what anybody wanted, but we just have to hope the unproven players we have (DJ, UPS, Hendo), step up this year.

If we are going to get flip we might as well scratch that and get AI and start him and play him 48 minutes. I have a feeling that unless Nazr is just as good as last year before the back problems then we don't have a lot to look forward to this year.

This has been coming for a while. I think Dallas got the better end of that deal for sure. I bet we could have gotten more for Tyson Chandler by trading him to a team like the Thunder esp after everyone has been watching him play for team USA. We also should have gotten more for Oak last year.

I still like some of the recent moves we have made though. Tyrus Thomas is way better then Tyson Chandler. If DJ can step it up some we should be as good as last year.

F*** this. This is upsetting. I didn't expect Melo or Billups or any big name for that matter but I sure as heck expected someone. Higgins just said how valuable of a trade piece this is, and now we dont use it. How are we gonna build off of our progress from last season if we just keep losing players and getting no real talent in return?

We better be dealing Diaw soon....

i feel like all the energy we had at the end of last season making the playoffs is lost. i only am hoping that there is some moves going on that we dont hear of (like usually) that will happen, but with the money tight i dont see anything that IMPROVES us from last year. it sucks when both teams from the carolinas (us and panthers) are being real cheap and expect the fans to pay. fans are gonna be mad when we make $ saving moves regardless. the faith in the unprovens scares me for next year.
