    You have to remember where Charlotte is in the standings.

    For us Nazmo was not good enough. For them he will probably give them 10 and 8 or slightly better, which is better than what they gave up.

    Plus by trading Nazr and Dysse being hurt it gives Flip an excuse to play Sheed for 43 minutes tonight.

    What if Sheed gets T's out tonight.

    I wonder if Cheikh is on the roster tonight until the two Charlotte guys clear meds and arrive.

    Cheikh is burning up the NBDL.

    I love this deal. Whether AJ plays or not is a question that will be answered, but getting rid of NazMo's contract is priceless.

    Oops, Dysee is starting. He'll probably go 40 tonight just to make sure the injury can linger.

    I want to see Fabio play. Maybe they need a pest/flopper......

    You can call up a D league player for one game and then send him right back provided he is on your roster which Cheikh is.

    Great trade for the Pistons but what are they going to do with Walter Hermann? He's one of those dreaded Argentinians and don't you think that he and Carlos Delfino have had lots of conversations about life under Flipper as the coach?

    They need to trade Hermann for a draft pick somewhere and free up a bench spot for Samb. Poor Super Dupe he always seemed so upbeat and happy with his place keeping the bench warm. He's still young and maybe some other team will pick him up. Can we get Sammy Meija back now?

    That's true. But he's in the game down there today, and I don't believe he can be in two places at once. :sssh:

    Unfortunately, I don't think that Amir's cut out to be a center, and I think Flip is leery of going to a frontcourt of Amir and Maxiell, and Maxiell is playing so well that he is soaking up all the meaninful PF minutes. So I'm not sure how this move will help Amir's case.

    He has actually played them together this year and it worked out okay. AJ is not that heavy but he is our tallest player now 6'11 1/2", next to Cheikh, and our best leaper.

    We shall see.

    Doesn't sound like they are going to sit the pine. I think if anything this trade could reduce AJ's time even more. Herrmann is 6'9" and Brezco is over 7 feet. I think Flipper will play these guys ahead of AJ.

    ESPN - Bobcats acquire Mohammed from Pistons for Brezec, Herrmann - NBA

    Not "at times", always, when he doesn't see AJ...

    I know it has been speculated plenty, but I don't think there is any way Amir is 6'11". He's 6'9" which is part of his problem. He doesn't really have a position. (Aside from C, PF, SF, SG & PG)

    That is totally incorrect.

    Have a nice evening.

    I'm content. Nazr may be a solid big, but not enough. We already have Amir who definetely has to play no matter what.
    With Herrmann, we have a decent alternative to Hayes and Brezec can contribute if needed. Besides, both have expiring contracts what makes the deal even more attractive. GOOD!!!

    This has been discussed before. Arnie Kander measured him during pre-season and said AJ was 6'11 1/2"

    No need to find any negatives here. If a player isn't getting the time they deserve, it's the coach's fault. Don't evaluate this trade based on what you think it might influence the coach to do against his will.

    Joe D appears to have regretted the Nazr signing and he just erased it. Problem solved.

    In the meantime, we have 2 additional tools for Flip's tool belt. If they never play a single second, it was still a good trade for the next 4 years.


    I'm in shock that it actually went down.


    Those quotes from Charlotte make it seem like they thought they traded for McDyess. It is possible Joe tricked them that badly?
