View Full Version : Hoopsworld's protected/unprotected list

"A team-by-team list of the players that were protected as well as unprotected for Charlotte's expansion draft, as well as free agents. All info is as most currently reported or rumored."

Take that as you will. "This is what we think" is what I think they mean. I see no reason why Croshere would be protected given the size of his contract.

Anyway, this is what passes for their "premium content" I guess.

Yeah, they must be just guessing with Cro on the list.

Yeah, they must be just guessing with Cro on the list.

Interesting! Bird is doing the choseing though and I don't see him making the same choices as Donnie.

I just had a new thought. If Croshere is protected that means either Bird doesn't want to lose him, or more likely, Cro is going to be part of a big trade and Bird doesn't want it missed up.

Right Will, I considered that too. Protect Cro because the forward positions will be depleted through trade and pay off Charlotte to not take Reggie if necessary.

Some of the players listed are ones that have been listed in the media but a few choices seem suspect. Like why would Minnesota protect Johnson if Ebi has made as much progress as they've said he has. Bonzi? I don't know what goes on behind the scenes of course.

Looking at this list makes me realize again just how deep Memphis is.

Where is Cato on this list? Argh.

They are guessing. If the P's are willing to risk leaving Reggie unprotected then the choice comes down to Cro v. AJ strictly on impact to the team. IWC they may may protecting the PF slot in case they do trade AH.

Yeah...where is Cato on that list and can we somehow fool them into letting us claim Bo Outlaw??? Please?

Settle left 3 bigs unprotected, they may not be much good in the SOnics view but they will lose one of them.
