Bobcats Could Use Cap Space To Facilitate Trade
Curtis Polk said the Bobcats could use their estimated $21 million in cap space to facilitate a trade between two other teams.
“If we don’t land the big fish – there’s not a lot of movement and we’re not a big glamour market right now – then we need to use this in a lot of different ways,” said Polk. “It’s not just (the resources) to accumulate star free agents, but to put pieces in place that Mike (new coach Mike Dunlap) is going to need.”
Polk said the Bobcats also are considering adding a veteran player.
“A really classy guy who could also be a good teacher and mentor,” Polk described. “And he comes here for two years at $5 million a year. And then we get the (cap) room back after that.”
