  1. ProBasketballTalk 2013-14 Preview: The Charlotte Bobcats

    Oct 2, 2013, 8:44 AM EDT

    Al Jefferson

    Last season: Remember when the Bobcats started the season out 7-5 and we all kind of did a double take? That really happened, there was a moment where we wondered if this team wasn’t as terrible as we all thought. Then reality hit. The Bobcats went 14-56 the rest of the season. Charlotte had the…

  2. Ten free agents still out on the market

    Sep 3, 2013, 9:16 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls shooting guard Hamilton questions a call against the Charlotte Bobcats during the first half of their NBA basketball game in Charlotte

    At this point, the free agent cupboard is pretty bare, and a number of teams have filled out their rosters anyway. Let’s just be honest — if you’re still on the free agent market there is a reason. Still, there are a few teams still looking to add player 14/15 to the roster off minimum…

  3. Another veteran big out on the market, Chris Wilcox

    Aug 26, 2013, 10:59 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Boston Celtics

    Around this time of year — late August, early September — is when teams fill out the end of the roster. It’s when Chris Wilcox got a call… Except will he this year? Last season in Boston he was solid in a limited role — 4.2 points and 3 rebounds a game in about 13.6…

  5. Knicks interested in Tyrus Thomas

    Jul 12, 2013, 1:55 PM EDT

    Tyrus Thomas

    The Bobcats amnestied Tyrus Thomas, making the move official Wednesday. Any team with space to absorb his 2013-14 salary of $8,694,215 can claim him (not happening). If that doesn’t happen, any team with cap room can bid how much it wants to pay him the next two seasons (maybe happening). That process takes 48 hours,…

  6. NBA’s amnesty window open, here are three candidates to watch

    Jul 10, 2013, 12:55 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    The NBA’s amnesty window is open — from now until July 16, teams that haven’t used their one-time amnesty provision since the lockout can wipe one contract off the official books, so long as that is a contract they signed before the lockout. Which means there are only 13 teams and 34 total players where…

  7. Bobcats to amnesty Tyrus Thomas

    Jul 5, 2013, 11:47 AM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Charlotte Bobcats

    21.7 21.0 18.8 13.8 Notice a pattern? Those are, in chronological order, the minutes per game for Tyrus Thomas during his four seasons with the Bobcats. Still just 26 years old, Thomas has faded into near-obscurity. He averaged career lows in points (4.8) and rebounds (2.3) per game this season, but the lowest point came…

  8. Report: Al Jefferson agrees to three-year deal with Bobcats

    Jul 4, 2013, 2:10 PM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Dallas Mavericks

    Al Jefferson was reportedly looking for a four-year deal worth in the neighborhood of $15 million per season in free agency. He also was said to be interested in waiting for the Dwight Howard domino to fall before choosing his destination, in case a contender became interested in retaining his services. As it turned out,…

  9. Beno Udrih latest to pile on Scott Skiles coaching style

    Feb 28, 2013, 10:44 AM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v Phoenix Suns

    Not many players would have been happy being shipped from a playoff bound Milwaukee Bucks to an Orlando Magic team that got routed by the Sacramento Kings Wednesday night. But such was the atmosphere with the Bucks under former coach Scott Skiles that Beno Udrih is happy with the trade. And he wasn’t just saying…

  11. Michael Jordan played some one-on-one with Bobcats

    Dec 12, 2012, 3:45 PM EDT

    Michael Jordan

    He’s not quite the same explosive player he was, even from his Wizards days, but it’s safe to say that even at age 49 Michael Jordan’s post footwork right now will best a lot of the Charlotte Bobcats. A few of them got to find out first hand as Jordan waded into a team practice…

  12. Bobcats Tyrus Thomas out two months with calf injury

    Nov 19, 2012, 4:56 PM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v Charlotte Bobcats

    Tyrus Thomas — who has given the Bobcats some pretty mediocre minutes off the bench so far this young season — is now out for two months due to a calf injury, reports Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer. Charlotte Bobcats power forward Tyrus Thomas is expected to miss two months after a magnetic resonance…

  13. Video: Perry Jones III throws it down on Tyrus Thomas

    Oct 17, 2012, 5:09 PM EDT

    2012 NBA Draft

    In three years, we may look back and say Perry Jones III was the steal of the 2012 draft. Nobody questioned his physical gifts, but plenty of scouts questioned his desire, toughness and basketball IQ. If you watched his games at Baylor you saw flashes of what he can do physically — like the dunk…

  15. NBA Preview: Charlotte Bobcats

    Oct 5, 2012, 3:42 PM EDT

    Michael Kidd-Gilchrist

    Last season: Worst. Team. Ever. Literally, no team has ever finished with a worse winning percentage than the 7-59 Bobcats. That had to sting owner Michael Jordan. They were the least efficient team in the league on offense and defense (they both scored the fewest and allowed the most points per possession in the league).…

    Orlando Magic Hedo Turkoglu complains after he picked up second foul against New York Knicks in NBA basketball game in New York

    It’s list season in the NBA — there is not much to write about, so everyone seems to be doing a list of some kind. Counting down the game’s best players, for example. But Sean Deveney at the Sporting News went a different way and asked “who has the worst contracs in the NBA? One…

    Bradley Beal

    Bradley Beal may well be the No. 2 overall pick in this draft, but the question is will it be the Bobcats that take him or some other team. On one hand, you have this tweet from David Aldridge of NBA.com and TNT: Source: Bobcats have five legit offers they’re currently exploring to trade the…

    NCAA Basketball Tournament - Ohio State v Syracuse

    There was a time a few weeks ago where we wondered if Syracuse sixth man Dion Waiters was going to get into the lottery portion of the NBA draft. But in recent weeks he has rocketed up draft boards, to the point that Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo is reporting this: The Cleveland Cavaliers’ intrigue with…

    You want your team to jump ahead of everyone (except New Orleans) and pick up Thomas Robinson or Bradley Beal high in the draft? The Bobcats are shopping the No. 2 pick around, you can jump up and get your man. The price? You have to take on Tyrus Thomas. That according to Michael Lee…

  23. When the process matters: Why Charlotte should trade the No.2 pick

    Let’s start off with some instant rebuttal to the premature outcry that headline above is going to muster. First, the basics. The Charlotte Bobcats, in a continuing pattern regarding their awful, horrendous, terrible franchise history, lost the lottery’s No.1 pick despite a 1-in-4 chance to land Anthony Davis. The Bobcats are an awful, awful basketball…

  24. Bobcats lose 23rd straight, fall to Knicks to set record for futility

    Apr 26, 2012, 11:43 PM EDT

    Knicks Bobcats Basketball

    The Charlotte Bobcats are the worst team in NBA history. Charlotte fell to the Knicks by 20 points, 104-84, on a night when the Knicks basically gave their best players a night off. On a night the Bobcats should have played with desperation, they were passive and just missed good looks. It was their 23rd…

    Paul Silas

    Paul Silas — at age 68 — may be the toughest guy in the Bobcats locker room. He’s almost certainly the toughest minded. Which explains why the team has just 7 wins this season. Sunday after another Bobcats loss, Silas and Tyrus Thomas got into an altercation, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo. Silas, 68, had…
