Charlotte has traded Tyson Chandler and Alex Ajinca to Dallas for Dampier, Matt Carroll and Najera

http://twitter.com/WojYahooNBA

Guess they feel they'd rather have Dampier, who's always more healthy than Chandler. Also a bit better offensively.

Chandler was an expiring also. Maybe they can buy out the other two and save now.
I doubt there's any chance Melo will come to Charlotte but on the local news last night they mentioned the Bobcats will want to make a run at him.

Dampier's contract was apparently less valuable than expected... Charlotte will be buying him out... and he will return to the Mavs. Cuban is going to have a sick front court Dirk, Heywood, Chandler, Dampier. That team just keeps getting deeper and deeper.

The Bobcats have reportedly pulled out of a trade that would have sent center Tyson Chandler to Toronto.

Chandler may have actually been the sticking point, as the Bobcats don't have enough frontcourt depth to absorb his absence. His expiring contract is also a valuable trade chip, and Charlotte obviously wants to make the most of it.


-roto


The Bobcats have canceled the reported trade that would have sent Boris Diaw and Tyson Chandler to the Raptors in exchange for Jose Calderon and Reggie Evans.

Team owner Michael Jordan apparently had second thoughts about giving up Tyson Chandler, leading to an 11th hour retraction. He's not helping his image as a fumbling executive, and the Bobcats are still left without a starter-quality point guard. Back to the drawing board.

So let me get this straight, the bobcats lose Front Court depth by losing Chandler and will not be keeping Dampier. Why not just let Chandlers contract run out? This also leaves them without a point guard. I don't think Carrol can run the point, probobly Augustine then?

markbutter
07-13-2010, 03:19 PM
I think this has alot to do with trying to match up to the Lakers. Damp/Chandler/haywood with Dirk at the 3 vs. Artest. It's not like Dirk will have to play alot of defense against Artest and can shoot over him. Not sure what this does for Charlotte if they buy out Damp.

As Dallas, they still have C. Butler's expiring contract and if they resign a bought out Damp, they got Chandler for free and cut salary.

As someone else said regarding AlJeff, Minn didn't want to take back Carroll's and the other guy's contract so Minn was off the board regarding Dallas.

Jefferson is not a center and i guess this is the best deal they could get for a center. Chandler isn't horrible he played well on the hornets rebounding, blocking, and catching lobbs from CP3. He also played good defense against Duncan a few years back in that series.

So Chandler can finally play with another PG again that can throw him some alley oops? Don't underestimate this guy becuz he can still play at a high level when he can stay healthy. He's a good rebounder/shot blocker and he proved when he was with the Hornets that with a good PG, he can be deadly on those alleys. Mavs fans should like this deal. But if they don't like it, we'll take TC off your hands and bring him to OKC.

How can you back out of a deal like that... Larry Brown wanted a PG and MJ didn't deliver. Good luck with 1 near-decent PG next year. Taking Caroll back when you initially traded him and his bad contract away; just terrible.

I like it for the macs but what people might not realize is this could be huge for the bobcats. They are trig to be players to land Carmelo next year. He and Jordan have a close relationship and he no doubt will press hard to try to convince him to play for his team. But they will need more pieces to make the team look attractive.

Quote:

"After July 10, 2010, a team can trade for Dampier (and give Dallas the ability to trade-match a salary up to $16.4475 million) ... and then that team can immediately release Dampier. The new team gets the payroll, cap and perhaps the lux-tax relief without ever having to spend a dime for a contract that is on the books at $13 million."

"Dampier's contract next summer will be similar, and could be even more marketable than Stack's, because on Damp's there is no buyout required to waive him, and his contract will be about twice as big as Stack's is. Double the contract can equal double the savings for the other team. "

Al Harrington is the Mavericks' #1 target as they look to spend their mid-level exception, according to Marc Stein of ESPN.com.

The Mavs just landed Tyson Chandler for next to nothing, which should end speculation that they're trying to sign Shaquille O'Neal. Harrington can play both SF and PF and might find himself filling out a crazy-deep bench if he ultimately signs with Dallas.

Such as the FACT that there is no 2mil buyout on Damp's contract.

Here is an ESPN article that confirms it as well, since DB.com doesn't do it for you:

Quote: "The Bobcats will waive Dampier and reap the $13 million savings. Dampier will then become an unrestricted free agent and it is not expected that he will return to Dallas, a source with knowledge of Dampier's thinking said, which would end his six-year stint with the franchise."

Harrington can't really play SF if you ask me. I'm trying to figure out why we would give the MLE to a player who literally MIGHT get 12 minutes per game. There is no room for another big on this roster now, but with the crap offseason we have had, I guess getting Harrington makes sense to our merry band of misfits in the front office.

Because Al Jefferson is owed 42 million. And if he was worth it, the TWolves wouldnt have shopped him. Also he plays the same position as Dirk so would he come off the bench? Please dont tell me you would play him at center because he doesn't defend. This is a good trade for the Mavs. You can NEVER have enough big men in this league. Best of all we got rid of the awful Matt Carroll lol....

Y2k I really think you are underestimating the value of quality big men in this league. Sure Al Jefferson is a better "name" but hes certainly not a player of NEED for Dallas. I think he would more or less hurt Dirk more than he would have helped. Getting Tyson Chandler gives us a big that can DEFEND. Something we just flat out didn't do up until last year, and Dampier is wildly overpaid and inconsistent. This is by no means a sexy trade but boy it makes us better. And thats all that matters....

Haywood and Chandler can both run, have offensive upside and are far superior defenders and rebounders than Dampier. Dampier just clogged the lanes and made it tough for his own team to drive to the hoop, and was inept at the foul line to boot.

Dallas plans to run a lot more this year with Dampier gone. Haywood will start and Chandler will spell him and stay healthy for the playoffs, when he will be needed against the likes of Portland, San Antonio, and LA.

Ok this was obviously an impluse move in reaction to the mavs not getting Jefferson. My only question is if they did want to give Dampier for Jefferson, why did they give him for Chandler and Ajencia? Pretty stupid on the mavs front but fortunate for the Jazz.

Don't know if this has been stated yet, but I know what Mark Cuban was thinking when he made this deal. There are no more franchise changing players out there right now so he traded Dampier's expiring deal for Chandler, who's 13 mil contract will expire next year. Why not trade for a better center and know you can get something of worth for him next season?

he traded a contract that can expire now... for the same contract that can expire next year + dumping carrol's bad contract. he's probably going to pedal the chandler expiring deal for something at the deadline. what would be really funny is if he traded chandler + butler and others for cp3 and okafur.

Chandler is expiring and is a great backup for Haywood. Safe.

Next season? No

This isn't a Dampier situation, if you don't deal Chandler at the deadline, you get nothing at the end of the season, unless it's a sign and trade.

You're right, I'm softening on this trade a bit. Dumped two bad contracts and just learned per Hollinger that we also received a 6.8 mil tpe from the deal.

So, good basketball/business trade.

what is Dallas smoking? They passed on Al Jefferson because they thought they could get something better with Dampier and then they get Chandler? wtf?

This trade is so pointless. It doesn't help anyone, Dallas has lost depth and Charlotte lost great potential.

Not good bball wise but we had to get some cap relief so I'm ok with this. Im suprised the macs couldn't get more for Dampiers super expiring.

LOL at the Raps fans who said other GMs weren't going to deal with MJ now

the only reason paul is getting traded is money... and to get him you need to eat the abomination that is okafur's contract. so the mavs now have 25+ million in expirings. not saying it will happen, but it gives them options
