Charlotte Bobcats Consider Re-Signing Kwame Brown

Free agent Kwame Brown worked out for the Charlotte Bobcats, and one can only hope that Michael Jordan was in the gym fighting hard to bite his tongue. From the Observer: “Brown, an unrestricted free agent, finished last season as the Bobcats’ starting center. As of now, Gana Diop, coming off a ruptured Achilles tendon, is the only true center under contract to the Bobcats. Brown expressed gratitude at the end of last season to Bobcats owner Michael Jordan, player-personnel chief Rod Higgins and coach Paul Silas for re-igniting his career. Bartelstein said it’s still uncertain where Brown will sign, but acknowledged what a good experience Brown in Charlotte. ‘No question he is tremendously appreciative of the opportunity Michael and Rod gave him,’ said Bartelstein. ‘And also the opportunity Paul gave him’ when Silas took over as coach in December. ‘All those things, that’s not lip-service. But by the same token, it’s a business.’”

    I would like to see him take the minumum to play for Miami. Then sign Battier for the mid-level.

    I’m convinced Kwame Brown is blackmailing MJ because ain’t no way in the hell MJ love that scrub that much to be giving him all these chances!

    He actually had a productive year last year. I wouldnt be surprised if he came back.


    MJ gotta take care of his son.

    Kwame still has time to shine. He never got the guidence he really needed. I think the best of him is yet to come. Charlotte is the place for him to do this!

    @Dante. He’s been in the L for 10+ years….if I’m drafted first overall, you best believe I would be working my @ss off to be one of the elite in the first 2-3 years.The skill that got him to be the first overall draft pick should be his guidance if the guidance was never really there. MJ needs to figure it out….kwame is a lemon.

    Kwame must have seen MJ commit a murder or seen MJ in bed with another dude… but yeah if Miami gets an elite point guard some how, having Kwame Brown at center won’t be that bad. He plays defense and does eat up a lot of offensive touches

    MJ in the house!!!

    Kwame actually showed a ton of progress last year. He was one of the best value players in the league last year. I hope he returns to Charlotte at a nice, loyal price since he already got overpaid from his rookie contract. Seems like a good dude too.
