From chad ford chat 12/15/10 at espn.com: bobcats one of few teams interested in rip and his money
From a separate espn.com report: bobcats gauging trade interest in some of their main guys (jackson and wallace were mentioned)
From me, and anyone else who knows anything: orlando is not winning the title this year with their current wing situation
pistons get: gortat, tyrus thomas, cap trash from bobcats (najera, carroll, etc)
bobcats get: rip, tayshaun, vince carter, draft pick(s) from pistons if necessary
pistons get 2 young bigs to address existing problems with rebounding and interior defense.
orlando improves, trying to win a title this year.
MJ saves a boatload of long-term cash; consequently giddy, it might not even occur to him to ask for some draft picks.
orlando gets: gerald wallace, stephen jackson, sagana diop
