Jamario Moon To Sign With Bobcats

Jamario Moon is being “called up” to the Bobcats from the D-League, a source tells SI.com. “Veteran small forward Jamario Moon has signed with Charlotte through the end of the season, sources told SI.com. Moon, who had been playing with the L.A. D-Fenders of the NBA Development League since early March, will be joining his fifth team in five seasons. With the Bobcats (7-51) well on their way to finishing with the worst record in the league, it’s a chance to preview a player who could become part of their woefully shallow talent pool in the future.”

    Has there ever been a D-League player who refused the opportunity to be called up?

    Good for him, I guess. His job will be to help them NOT win games…

    Before Sam Mitchell and Bryan Colangelo gave him a chance to break into the league for the Raptors, dude used to be a Harlem Globetrotter. At least he’ll bring some excitement to those lowly Cats

    I like Moon. Seemed like he really appreciated his time in the league. Plus he’s got major hops. Hope he gets a good run.

    Damn, you guys beat me to the “bobcats gonna win championship” jokes. In all seriousness though, Moon is a fun player and should at least make games a bit more watchable with his nice dunks.

    Old story, but why don’t they call Iverson in to play. At least he’ll increase attendance and television revenue for a few games. I’d even bet that if they (or anybody) picked up Iverson for the rest of the season that they would be voted to be aired on NBA t.v.

    Just saying, if you’re season is done anyway, might as well get some attendance up. Also gives AI a chance to ‘prove’ he has something left in the tank.

    @NUPE yeh, you could ask the same question about a lot of teams. but Im wondering why teams didnt sign Iverson at the beginning of the season. I just saw AI and he`s in great shape – is in better shape than at least half the players in the nba. the bobats are not alone when asking the question have they not considered signing AI. why hasnt miami picked up Iverson with their woeful, nonexistent bench production? obviously, miami has no money but still they have the same issues from last season when they loss in the finals – no centers, no bench. I would also have to question NJ`s reasoning, NY who signed bibby and bdavis, philly who has no consistent scoring anywhere on that team, etc. You could question many teams about their reasoning in not signing him. I personally would rather see Iverson start the 2012-13 season fresh on a good team than play the final 5 games with the bobcats. But I really hope to see Iverson return next season. arenas has found a team despite the gun-locker room issue. artest is still playing despite his participation in a historic brawl. And I bet odom finds multiple suitors next season despite him giving up on a team who just won the nba championship just because his heart was crushed when la traded him.

    Iverson in New York would be insane
