|PER||PER Against (Net)|
|Jamario Moon||3.27||8.53 (1.96)|
Strengths: Moon was called up from the D-League with 8 games left in the season, filling the roster spot created from Diaw’s contract buy out. With injuries from Maggette and Najera, Moon averaged about 15 minutes per game, with 2.3 points and a per of 3.35. As a former Harlem Globetrotter, one of Moon’s greatest strengths is raw athleticism.
Weaknesses: Moon is a proverbial globetrotter, playing for 20 teams throughout the course of his professional career. This says a few things about him as a player. First, Moon is playing out of his league in the NBA. Further, in only playing 8 games with an already defeated Bobcats squad, it was difficult to see how Moon could fit into the franchise longer term. On the court, his athletic abilities were largely outshone by his less than stellar defensive skills and air ball shots.
Reason for Optimism: Maybe we will see Moon with the Harlem Globetrotters next year.
Reasons for Pessimism: Odds dictate that Jamario Moon will not be around at the start of next season. With so many factors up in the air for the Bobcats, it’s unlikely that Moon will be one of the pieces that sticks.
Forecast: Moon was brought up from the D-League to fill an empty spot in the roster and prevent Henderson, Williams and Brown from being overworked and potentially injured. At 31, Moon is not the type of player the rebuilding Bobcats need.
