08:21 AM ET 12.29 | Marcus Camby's name has surfaced lately, and there was some speculation he would wind up going to Charlotte. Camby wasn't happy about the rumor and would not take kindly to being traded to Charlotte or any other non-contending team, according to a person close to him. The 36-year-old Camby would even consider retirement if he were traded to a mediocre or rebuilding team, the source said. "If he was traded to Charlotte, he would think about retiring," the source said. "He's made plenty of money. He'd rather play, but he's at the point in his career where he doesn't want to get bounced around from team to team. If he's traded, it would have to be to a contender."

Camby, please come to Cleveland before you retire! Man we need all the help we can get!

Bro, come to the Bobcats where you'd be an instant hit and carry them to back-to-back playoff appearances.

If thats the case then he would be good for trading a big contract

D'Antoni is very stubborn at change. He needs to find a way to get a starting unit that doesn't give up size and easy points due to mismatches. If getting mauled by Z who's probably the slowest center in the league is not enough evidence I don't know what else will. Our starting line up is too short and small.... going into this tough stretch we'll need a balanced starting 5 to compete. Gallo doesn't belong in the starting line up. Chandler and Turiaf have all taken bench stints so I don't know what makes Gallo immune to coming off the bench. If he's benched we can have a balanced starting five. This will help with our defense improve our offense while making sure we do not fall behind out the gate.

2. Fields
3. Chandler

5. Turiaf

A bench of Gallo, Douglas and Williams is quite potent. I don't see why that's so hard for him to inact that change.

Yea but without a serious trade like what Orlando did the bobcats are barely the 9th side.

Lets limit our convos to playoff teams. These loser teams like Bobcats do not deserve any blogging attention. Leave it to Lebron they'll be removed from the league.

There gotta be a voice of reason on that bench.
