The NBA trade Deadline is almost upon us, and there are still many teams out there with big needs. Some players are unhappy with their contracts, while others are not producing on the court. Teams are looking to make power moves within the next 2 days.
There are some big names on the trading block including: SG Monte Ellis, PF Josh Smith, PG Eric Bledsoe and center DeAndre Jordan. These are all great players who will benefit any franchise. The Charlotte Bobcats, who have one of the worst records in the NBA, are not one of the front runners for any of these players, and we constantly ask ourselves why?
The Bobcats currently have the worst record in the NBA sitting at an embarrassing 12-40. Although they great young talent, their teams chemistry lacks and clearly shows on the court. They could use a lot of help from the shooting guard position along with a dominant center. Kemba Walker and Gerald Henderson tend to run the Bobcats backcourt, while Kidd-Gilchrist and Mullens hold down the inside. They could definitely use a bigger presence to assist Mullens and bring in more offensive firepower, maybe a Josh Smith or someone else who has excellent leadership. Guard Ben Gorden has been unhappy with the team and could really be used to make a key trade with another team. The Bobcats have to take advantage of this is they want to be great.
The Bobcats franchise has not met expectations within the past few years. There excellent talent is not transferring into wins. They have money to spend, but players don’t want to play for a losing team. Upgrading their talent and making big trades is the only way to get the Bobcats on the right track. They have until 3:00 p.m. Thursday to make it happen.
