OKC Thunder Trade BJ Mullens to Bobcats for Future Draft Pick

Scantily-used big man BJ Mullens was sent from OKC to Charlotte for a future second-round draft pick. From the Observer: “The Charlotte Bobcats are acquiring 7-footer B.J. Mullens from the Oklahoma City Thunder. The Bobcats are giving up a second-round pick in 2013 and are receiving cash considerations. Mullens, who played one year at Ohio State before turning pro, has played sparingly the past two seasons with the Thunder. He averaged 1.5 points and 1.3 rebounds.”

    Big, big move.

    This is the move we needed to turn us into a contender for this season.

    Big men need to stay in college to develop. They can’t develop in the League.

    Bizarrocats at it again…

    If they still have Oak down there, Mullens will pick up some skills or at least learn how to work hard.


    Imagine if they treaded BJ for Luther Head.


    BJ traded for Love. lol

    OKC really had no use for him. Since they’ve got Ibaka/Collison/Perkins/Aldrich. Smart move by both teams.

    okc basically gets a redo on that pick. blackcats should have got a lot more for one of their surefire high 2nd round picks. i wonder why more gms aren’t suspicious when presti makes offers

    AlbZ: OR they can develop in the league and get paid millions of dollars. Jermaine O’Neal did stay at Portland U for 4 years before going to the Pacers.

    You’re right. I guess it really depends on the player itself.
    But my short-term memory was thinking of Hasheem (okay he was a junior and would’ve never gone so high the next year) and Daniel Orton last year.

    He goes by the name Byron now, not BJ. Thunder should have kept him.

    @ seven deuce: Oak is gone due to his back problems sustained in that fight. Still, Silas and Co. are pretty good with big men.
