Amick: Charlotte's Gerald Wallace, DeSagana Diop & DJ Augustin For Andre Miller & Marcus Camby?

Moments after I hit "publish" on the last post regarding potential trade talks between the Portland Trail Blazers and Charlotte Bobcats, Sam Amick of NBA Fanhouse reports... ------------------------------- League sources told FanHouse that the Bobcats and Portland have discussed a trade that would send beloved small forward Gerald Wallace to the Blazers with center DeSagana Diop and point guard D.J. Augustin in exchange for center Marcus Camby and point guard Andre Miller. And while the Blazers are exploring a litany of their own options and don't appear eager to do the deal as of now, the discussion that is one of many being had by the Bobcats reveals plenty about the sort of the on-court changes Jordan has in mind for his club. He wants a point guard not named D.J. Augustin who comes with a veteran's resume and a veteran big man who produces on both ends of the floor. But it's the final prerequisite that is by far the most problematic for most scenarios being considered, as he wants to significantly cut future salary just in time for the new landscape that will come with a new collective bargaining agreement. ------------------------------- Virtually impossible to imagine that deal going through as constructed, but Charlotte is clearly looking to be aggressive and Portland has parts that would be appealing to them. -- Ben Golliver | benjamin.golliver@gmail.com | Twitter
