Bobcats Shopping Raja Bell

Quote:
The Bobcats are continuing to shop veteran guard Raja Bell, according to Yahoo's Adrian Wojnarowski.

"The Bobcats Raja Bell continues to be shopped around the league, GM's say. No doubt he'd love to get back to a contender," Wojnarowski wrote on his Twitter page.

Bell averaged 13 points, 4 rebounds and 2.5 assists per game in 45 appearances with Charlotte last season after being dealt by Phoenix.

He's making $5 million this year so the only thing I can see working is Banks + Belinelli, but Raja's contract is also expiring so acquiring Banks would put them back a few steps. Outside of Banks and Belinelli there aren't really two guys I'd be willing to package and give up for Bell. Wright is probably as good a defender as Bell at this point in their careers anyway.

there's no way bryan gives up bellinelli, you could try douby & banks or douby & weems.

Douby and Banks for Bell would be ideal but I can't see it happening.

Man, I would love to have Raja here on the Raps. He would be perfect coming off the bench behind DeRozan (only cuz DD is pretty much assured the starting job). With Raja you know your getting a guy with veteran experience who is going to score 11-13 a night. He can shoot the 3 and is an excellent perimeter defender. Also he is good at transition offence, which is what the Raps are going to work and improve on according to Triano. Would fit in perfect with the raps imo.

Triano has said DD will probably get 14-18 minutes a night. That will leave Raja with minutes he's averaged for his career.

Since it's pretty much do or die for the Raps this season, that is, they MUST WIN in order to keep Bosh, why not bring in a proven asset? But who would BC have to give up? Belinelli and Weems maybe?

If I were BC I would be getting on the phone to try and figure out a way to get this guy.

He's not needed if it involves Belli.

I'm sure BC would not do it if it involved Belinelli, as he looks highly on him. I haven't seen Belinelli play yet so I'm not sure at this point, that i would want to trade him either. But I still think for this season at least (Bell has an expiring contract), in order to maximize wins NOW Bell would be a good fit.

Why wouldn't you want to give away a terrible contract and a scrub for someone that can offer a little somethin' for a short period of time. But yaa it doesn't really matter 'cause this won't happen.

well, douby is coming off a good performance in sl and he's going to be happy with the limited minutes he gets.


bell is pushing back belinelli. but, i suppose for a year maybe.


plus, bell is 33. when douby is like 25 and bellinelli is 23.


we always complain about teams signing guys that's pushing back there young talent. well, heres an example.
