Charlotte Bobcats Getting Inside 2009-12-05

Charlotte Bobcats Getting Inside 2009-12-05The Charlotte Bobcats need a backup power forward and it wouldn't take much to move the meter.

Boris Diaw is the starter at this position and he hasn't played well this season, in part due to an off-season ankle sprain. Then the Bobcats traded Vladimir Radmanovic to Golden State. That was necessary to make the Stephen Jackson trade, and Radmanovic was limited as the backup power forward, but he was more reliable than anything they have now.

That was apparent in an 18-point loss to the Boston Celtics Tuesday: Small forward Gerald Wallace got in quick foul trouble, which robbed the Bobcats of their best rebounder. Diaw was struggling and rookie forward Derrick Brown looked intimidated, trying to match the Celtics' Kevin Garnett.

Twice following that game, coach Larry Brown spoke of the hole that exists at power forward. He hoped center Tyson Chandler could play part-time at power forward, but he's still not sufficiently recovered from ankle surgery to guard much far from the basket.

So what they really need is a trade that would logically involve one of the four point guards on this roster. Until (if?) that happens, they'll be scrambling to cover a gaping hole in their rotation.

NETS 97, BOBCATS 91: The Bobcats became the first NBA team to lose to New Jersey this season, and they have no one to blame but themselves. They missed 12 of 30 free throws and committed 19 turnovers (to nine by the Nets) to throw this one away.
