He’s a wildcard, because the only way Charlotte could sign him this offseason is if the Cavaliers cut him. He’s got a non-guaranteed second-year deal worth close to $1 million, so Cleveland cutting him is not off the table. Plus, the Cavs have a young logjam in the paint with guys like Tristan Thompson and Tyler Zeller taking up plenty of minutes.
If he is let go, The Bobcats should absolutely take a flier on him.
I loved him at West Virginia, and he’s been dominating the D League this season. In 10 games, he’s scored 22.9 points and grabbed 12 rebounds per contest in about 38 minutes of play on average.
Charlotte has a problem inside, and this guy can rebound.
