    Default Primoz Brezec taken by Charlotte Bobcats

    Listening to ESPN950. They said that earlier today Bird said he expected to lose Primoz to the draft.

    Who cares.

    Primoz is a dime-a-dozen type of player.

    If he is gone, look for the P's to take another Euro giant (or Korean) at #29...if we still have that pick.

    I've thought we would do that all along, even if we kept PB.

    Boo hoo. Thank goodness. That gives us some extra room to bring in someone who can actually play.

    And yes, I'd rather have the hot dog vendor.

    I actually like Brewer. At least his energy counts for SOMETHING off the bench.....

    We do obtain a trade exemption for any player taken. PB's salary is bigger than JB's, but either way, don't look for them to use all the money. They'll bring in somebody at the mins. a call it a wash. (save the bucks where you can, spend it where you need)

    Team's losing players in the expansion draft get a trade exception equal to this years salary.

    I don't think there is anyone worth spending that on.

    Allows you to take back that amount more in a trade than you give up (ie Take back a 3 mil player while giving up a 2 mil)

    Correction. A team with a Team Salary above the Salary Cap will receive a Trade Exception to replace a player (other than a restricted free agent) selected from its unprotected list.

    That means if they take Ziggy, no exception.

    According to Insider, he was one the Bobcats highest choices and they were viewing him as a 'keeper'.

    Remember, he's very young and skilled. I'm guessing that many of you would have given up on Rik Smits at the same age. Or Nesterovich. Or Divac. Or Z. Or Jeff Foster/ Mark Blount/ Kelvin Cato/ etc.

    It takes big men a long time to transition from the college or Euro league games to being an NBA starter. Just a fact of life.

    On the other hand, for perimeter players like James Jones or Brewer: if they were ever going to play, they'd be playing now. Do you really think that if Jones could earn minutes at SF or if Brewer was better than AJ or KA that they'd sit on the injured list that long?
    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you

    Jones can if Harrington is gone. Fred plays 2, Jones plays 3, Bender plays 4. off the bench. Works for me.
