Bobcats Hire Flip Saunders As Head Coach
The Bobcats have found their replacement for Paul Silas. After the worst season in NBA history, the Bobcats' coaching search has been highly publicized by local media, and Flip Saunders appears to be their man. Saunders, 57, has coached the Timberwolves, Pistons and most recently the Wizards. He has a .548% winning record in the NBA. Saunders was signed to a two-year deal.
Assistant coach Stephen Silas also had his contract renewed for the next season.
Bobcats Hire Assistant General Manager
19 year old Liam Washburn was named Charlotte Bobcats GM. Little is known about Washburn, but he reportedly impressed Michael Jordan enough to hire him despite his lack of a college education of basketball background.
"We are very glad to have Liam and his unique perspective as part of the Bobcats team", said general manager Rich Cho. [i]"Being around the same age as most of our team, we hope he can identify with our young stars.
When asked about such an unorthodox hiring of a seemingly unqualified candidate, Michael Jordan declined to comment.
Diop Opts Out Of Contract, Retirement Likely
In a surprising move, seldom played Center DeSegana Diop opted out of the final year of his contract, which would have earned him $7.37 million dollars. Fellow veteran free agent picked up his $3.5 million option to stay in Charlotte.

Raptors trade #8 pick, Linas Kleiza to Philadelphia for Elton Brand
In a shocking move, the Philadelphia 76ers have acquired the #8 pick from Toronto, along with Linas Kleiza for Elton Brand. Brand offers a large expiring contract and veteran presence, while wiping Kleiza's regrettable contract off the books. However, the #8 pick is a lot for a guy six years removed from his last all-star appearance.
Toronto grade: D | Philadelphia grade: A-
Hornets trade #10 pick, Chris Kaman to Brooklyn for Gerald Wallace
Just three months after trading the #6 pick for Gerald Wallace, the Nets swapped Wallace and his expiring contract for Chris Kaman and his expiring contract, as well as the #10 pick more importantly. With elite prospects such as Robinson, Drummond and Sit on the board, this looks like the first good deal for the Nyets in a long time.
New Orleans Grade: D | Brooklyn grade: B+
Rockets trade #14 pick, Marcus Morris to Golden State for Andrew Bogut
A very confusing move by Golden State sends center Andrew Bogut to the Rockets for rookie Marcus Morris and the 14th pick. The move is a surprising one as Andrew Bogut has yet to play a game for the Warriors, who sent Monta Ellis and a recent lottery pick for the defensive Center and former #1 pick.
Houston grade: B+ | Golden State grade: D
Celtics trade picks #21, #51 to Toronto for PF Ed Davis, C Amir Johnson
The Celtics trade two of their three picks in the draft for two of the Raptors' key young frontcourt players. The Raptors have high hopes for their prospective front court of Brand, Bargnani and Valanciunas and clear significant salary, while Boston gets much needed frontcourt help.
Boston grade: A- | Toronto grade: B
Celtics trade pick #22 to Orlando for 2013 first rounder, SF Quentin Richardson
The Celtics deal their other pick in this draft to pick up the Magic's 2013 first and forward Quentin Richardson. Richardson is probably no worse than Mickael Pietrus, while Orlando's 2013 pick is likely to be earlier than 22nd.
