    If the Bobcats were to let Augustin walk for nothing, I'm surprised they wouldn't want Hansbrough. Their roster is pretty horrid imo, they ranked 25th in attendance and Hansbrough is in his final year. Unless they truly believe they're going to compete for a playoff spot, I see no reason for them not to want a fan favorite on their roster even if it's just for a season. North Carolina fans love Hansbrough to no end. He was like their Tebow. To be honest though, there aren't a lot of power forwards pick from if he were to strike out on Brand. I

    If we were to trade Hansbrough for Augustin and win the bid for Brand, that would be pretty wicked.


    George Hill, DJ Augustin
    Paul George
    Danny Granger, Gerald Green
    David West, Elton Brand
    Roy Hibbert, Ian Mahinimi

    Then we could still sign another SG perhaps?

    Just curious though, why is Augustin seem to be the one guy we really want? And we did put in a bid for Brand, right? Seems like there are some other directions we could go.

    PG: Jordan Farmar, Jerryd Bayless, John Flynn(eh...), Mike Bibby(eh... did hit some clutch 3's in the playoffs though)
    SG: Leandro Barbosa, OJ Mayo, Courtney Lee, Delonte West, Jodie Meeks, Rudy Fernandez, Randy Foye, Shannon Brown, Marco Belinelli, Michael Redd
    PF: Antawn Jamison, Kenyon Martin, Daniel Orton(I know he has busted knees but he's only 21), Carl Landry, Kris Humphries, Jason Maxielle, Anthony Randolph

    Do we just have no shot at Jamison or Martin and that's why we'd put a bid on Brand? And same thing with the point guards, are we going after Augustin because we feel like we have no shot at the others? Doubt the Pacers would even want Bibby or Flynn. Shooting guards though... I'd honestly take any number of the one's listed. I'm assuming we can't afford Mayo, Lee, Delonte, Humphries and Landry?

    I'm really interested to see how this all plays out. Right now, it could honestly go either way. We could end up putting together a better roster than last year or a worse roster than last year. Getting a back up point guard is the most important thing at this point I'd have to think. And you'd think the Pacers have something set up or why would you trade away your only back up point guard? Especially one that's pretty good.

    Ramon Sessions is finalizing a multi-year deal with the Charlotte Bobcats, source close to the situation confirms. Deal will be signed soon.

    Never quite understood the interest teams have in Sessions, doesn't do much for me... he's just a slightly more athletic version of Earl Watson, imo. I guess if you don't have an option lined up, he's alright.
    There are two types of quarterbacks in the league: Those whom over time, the league figures out ... and those who figure out the league.

    One presumes Pacers go all out to sign Augustin directly now. I'm told they made Collison move with full confidence that new PG was on way

    Should the Pacers sign him to an offer sheet and then more than likely work out a sign and trade with the Cats?

    The Pacers aren't wasting any time, they're already heavily pursing DJ Augustin. They're "close" to getting him, according to a source.

    They renounced him, so they can't.

    I think the opposite. Now we have a chance to get DJ without giving anything up. That's much better than the alternative.

    Our blunder worked out in our favor.

    what's not to like, unless DJ's contract demands are too much?

    I suppose we may want to dump Hansbrough's salary somewhere, for future #2 draft picks or something, or hang onto him until the next trade deadline.

    I like Augustine from what I can remember playing against the Pacers. I didn't follow him otherwise.

    Exactly, now we get him and don't have to worry about being short at another position.

    The interesting part will be if we win the Bid for Brand.

    I don't like him much, but he didn't have much around him, either. He's not a better PG than collison, but he creates his own shot better.

    You assume too much. Remember MJ has put kibosh on trades with us before. Also the deal that NOLA screwed up between them, us and Memphis....

    New start, chance to show he still has it, go get more in free agency next year, I expect him to see a decent amount of time on the floor this year.
