Bye, Kwame

Kwame Brown leaves Charlotte for Golden State, at $7 million for 1 year.

I said it yesterday in the Southeast Division DDL on ESPN (still trying to find a link to the transcript) – Kwame will get more from someone else than the Bobcats want to pay.  So, here’s my Transformers Chart for Kwame, as we bid adieu.

    I thought Jordan wanted to win. This organization will continue losing seasons until we start signing players. Put up money for some of these free agents PLEASE!

    Paying for players is one thing – overpaying is another. I would have loved to have seen Kwame stick around, but if someone is stupid enough to write a check for $7 mil on a reclamation project with one good year, then its best to let him walk.

    With the new CBA, the Bobcats realistically are 2 years from being able to be aggressive in free agency. Large market teams are having to grab the “names” now before restrictions on spending kick in, which inflates the short-term value of a player. The playing field really won’t be level until the new luxury tax and exemption structure kicks in after the 2 year ramp-up period.

    If foresee 2013-14 being when we can pass judgment on MJ’s commitment to build a championship team. Until then, we’re obviously building through the draft and hoping for the best.
