The Charlotte Bobcats lost out on signing free agent point guard Goran Dragic, who will land in the now Steve-Nash-less Phoenix desert.
It was a surprise to many that Charlotte even got in the discussion for Dragic, but it was an even bigger surprise that they offered him as much as they did. Some reports had the deal Charlotte offered Dragic at 4-years, $9 million per season.
Now, assuming JJ Hickson does what everyone thinks he’ll do and sign with Golden State, the Bobcats will likely turn their attention to value-contracts and anyone who can help them in the front court.
Antwan Jamison will most likely be the first free agent to land in the Queen City. Charlotte is going after him hard, and they will offer him more money than any contender who’s interested in him can offer.
Other guys I still think Charlotte has on their shopping list include Aaron Gray and Ivan Johnson (although he will be hard to pry away from Atlanta with all their new-found cap space.
