Ever since the Charlotte Bobcats became the NBA’s latest expansion team, they have really struggled to get another going in order to compete with the best of the best in the Eastern Conference. Not only have the Bobcats struggled in the East, but they have arguably been one of the worst franchsies in the league and have seemed to have no hope for the future.
This season the Charlotte Bobcats came into the year with little hope of being able to put a competitive team on the floor, but despite no one expecting much from Charlotte, the Bobcats really started to come into their own under head coach Larry Brown.
Along with the Bobcats making the playoffs for the first time in franchise history and seeing Michael Jordan become the owner, Charlotte saw some key players come to life like Gerald Wallace, Stephen Jackson and point guard Raymond Felton.
Charlotte Bobcats- The Bobcats are a team on the rise and could be a playoff contender for the foreseeable future, but they are going to have keep their key players on contract in order to keep making the playoffs every single season.
Raymond Felton is a hometown boy and has played in North Carolina since college with the Tar Heels, but he might get some offers this summer that might lead him elsewhere, but I can’t see him leaving Charlotte.
New York Knicks-The Knicks have the most money to spend this summer and will almost certainly lockdown some of the big-name free agents, but they will be looking to add talented players at key positions like at point guard.
This past season the Knicks traded away Nate Robinson to the Boston Celtics and have an aging Chris Duhon in the backcourt who is not getting the job done. Sergio Rodriguez will probably be the starter if he re-signs, but Felton would be a welcome addition.
