NBA Rumors: Charlotte Bobcats looking to make trades

The Charlotte Bobcats – losers of four of ten – are fading fast. Now sitting in the eigth seed of the NBA’s Eastern Conference, there is worry they could miss the postseason if their woes continue.

Knowing this, the Bobcats are reportedly looking to be buyers come the NBA’s February trade deadline.

Per Basketball Insiders:

I’ve heard from rival executives that the Bobcats are going to be buyers at the deadline. This is an organization that is tired of losing games and they’d love to make the playoffs this year. This is their opportunity, with the Eastern Conference being wide open.

We’ve heard the Bobcats have been shopping Ben Gordon and his expiring contract, but have yet to find takers. However – many teams wait until the final few days before taking on a large expiring deal (why pay more money than you have to?) so that doesn’t mean Gordon won’t be moved at some point.

It’s also been rumored that the ‘Cats are looking to acquire a defensive minded wingman in recent weeks, though, those aren’t exactly easy to find on the trade market.

    Most Bobcats struggle to score in double digits. Big Al and Kemba carry the team. Everyone else I imagine is subject to trade speculation. Just don’t trade away your draft picks or take on bad contracts PLEASE!!!.

      we are respectable 3-2 without kemba, winning against over-.500 teams clippers, raptors, and nuggets. All impressive wins. I think Big Al carries the team lol, and kemba is along for the ride

  • Bob Summers

    i think they should work a deal with the magic for affalo who is a defensive wingman who can score easy. but for this to go down i think a pick would have to be added from the bobcats.

  • Conner David Boyd

    MKG and Hendo are great defensive wingmen. We need a wing who can score consistently. I would love to see them manage to snag Gordon Hayward or Luol Deng somehow.

  • Marty Susman

    Kimba will walk when his contract is up…

  • Tony Huff

    They need to “stand pat” for at least one year. Changing players every year is detrimental to chemistry. The “:revolving door” approach rarely works.
