    Multiple outlets saying that the Bobcats are trying to unload Ben Gordon, Gerald Henderson, and others in an effort purely to cut payroll down to the minimum. Some saying they are dangling a first rounder to get it done (obviously would not be unprotected)....others saying they are trying to get a pick back in return (my guess is that only Charlotte sources are saying that).

    I have to wonder if this is a perfect match with our cap space:

    Ben Gordon's a no go because of his player option for next year.

    Henderson's qualifying offer could be waived this summer.

    Even Desagna Diop is a possibility, where we could simply buy him out as soon as he arrives.

    I would assume IF Morey did this, it would be at the deadline itself when he has exhausted the possibility of any other deals.

    Bobcats want a mid first for Henderson, so no to him

    I want their draft pick. Henderson would've been a nice back up if we didnt get Garcia

    Their GM has the same mindset as Morey. Don't expect that.

    Yeah, the vibe there is that they'll keep him.

    Diop though, they can't pretend is anything more than a salary dump. Question is whether Jordan's accountants win out and how much a carrot they're willing to dangle.
