08:19 AM ET 12.17 | Begging a team to play, which Larry Brown did Wednesday, is a bad sign and one that may lead to significant changes in Charlotte. [The] Bobcats have been gauging the trade value of various players, including co-captains Stephen Jackson and Gerald Wallace, two NBA sources confirmed Thursday. ... [Michael] Jordan personally addressed the team after Saturday's blow-out loss to Boston. Team personnel described Jordan''s remarks as stern and loud. "I'd think they're proposing different scenarios to different teams; maybe 15 or 20," said one of the sources, adding that Chicago and Detroit might be two teams receptive to making a deal.

Isn't time for Larry Brown to resign and move onto another team?

that pick is lottery protected for the next two years and the Bulls can decide to wait until year three when they can land the number one pick... if they are lucky enough.

The fact that Stephen Jackson is considered a "leader" on this team may say more about their issues than anything!

Bobcats is the gift that keeps giving. Cuban extends his love from Dallas on the Chandler donation. As for Dolan in New York he's still in disbelief of what Brown did for him WHILE Reinsdorf sips sizzurp on first round draft pick for jetting Thomas.

I've always lavished the thought of having the best speedster that plays with wreckless abandon on D'Antoni's team but Walsh's steady conservative hand won't take on Wallace's contract so good luck finding another charity to donate to. Great players don't make good GM's... MJ has steadily given up more talent than Memphis. As for Grunfield I'm still not sure if he knows what he's doing in DC...

Well not 3 years, from RealGM ...#1 in 2016 ....

Charlotte's own 2012 1st round draft pick to Chicago (top-14 protected in the 2012 Draft, top-12 protected in 2013, top-10 protected in 2014, top-8 protected in 2015 and unprotected in the 2016 Draft.)

RIP isn't in a bad state, in fact I would say that he's playing quite well. The other night against the Hawks he started the game a very efficient 5 for 6, and that was on a couple catch and shoots, and runners. I just don't think his head is in the right place since Gordon came in. And, Kuester has been horrible this year, not allowing hot hands to ride, and riding some streaks until he craps out.

Jordan's thinking is that he wants somebody who's played in Larry Brown's system and excelled.

Sup Ziggs!LMAO!Bobkittens...I like that.That's how they have been playing.But what do people expect...Let's add up the factors....They failed to resign Felton thinking Augustine is ready to lead this club.Which he can't.They let Damp go, but even more stupid they let Chandler go!They have but two guys that can score 20+ every game.WTF is the third guy?Without a third guy, true centers, a floor general how do the bobkittens expect to make another run at the playoffs?It's simple...Not this freaking season!MJ you dropped the ball again son!

WASUP DEE! The Bobkittens F'ed Up! They let chandler leave, and he's having a great year as a mav, and felton is having a great year as A Knick. and augustin just isn't ready to lead the team. and with no center, they probably won't make the playoffs.
