Gerald Wallace: Trade Bait?

Ever since he got the gig in Charlotte, Michael Jordan has repeatedly been accused of being more concerned with not missing his tee time, instead of running the Bobcats. And though that may very well be true, it doesn’t mean the man isn’t at least paying a little bit of attention to his woeful team.

Word on the street is that MJ is looking to make a big trade, one that would dramatically alter the look of the Charlotte Bobcats.

From Yahoo!:

As for the Bobcats roster, Larry Brown talked Michael Jordan out of trading forward Gerald Wallace over the summer, but that hasn’t stopped him from shopping him in the preseason, sources say.

Despite his propensity to get hurt, in frightening fashion no less, the freakishly athletic Wallace should have no trouble drawing interest around the League.

Should another League exec be willing to play ball with Mike, fans might not necessarily be happy with who the ‘Cats get in return for the 26-year old Wallace, but at least they now know that the guy in charge is at least showing up to the office once in a while.
