Today's Tunes: Today by Tom Scott
Today begins a new day in the Bobcats organization. Gone are Gerald Wallace, Nazr Mohammed, Derrick Brown, Sherron Collins and Dominic McGuire. And in their stead are Joel Przybilla, Dante Cunningham, Sean Marks, D.J. White and Morris Peterson. Mike Cranston reports that of the new players, Peterson and Marks will be waived. However, it's unsure that the new players will make it in time to play tonight. Do you know what that would mean?
Eduardo Najera might be getting some playing time at center.
Game Overview: As you may have guessed by now, the Bobcats are going to be quite short-handed, especially at the center position. That doesn't bode well when your opponent has DeMarcus Cousins. Or when your opponent is nearly at full strength, even if they are a bad team. However, the Kings are missing Tyreke Evans, so I guess that helps the Bobcats. But just look at this depth chart if the Bobcats new players don't arrive in time:
PG: Augustin / Livingston
SG: Henderson / Carroll
SF: Jackson / Henderson
PF: Diaw / Najera
C: Kwame / Diaw / Najera
Injured: Thomas, Diop
Key Matchup: Kwame/Diaw vs DeMarcus Cousins. If the Bobcats can stifle the Kings' best player on defense, then I can't really see how the Kings have much a shot at winning. Regardless, expect this to be an ugly game.
That said, I'm SUPER-PSYCHED to see what Gerald Henderson can do with a starting role and 30-35 minutes of playing time.
