Charlotte Bobcats Roster Report 2009-10-02


Charlotte Bobcats Roster Report 2009-10-02PLAYER NEWS:

--C Tyson Chandler has been cleared to start practicing, following off-season ankle surgery, but will likely sit out the first couple of preseason games before playing full-speed five-on-five.

--C DeSagana Diop lost about 15 pounds over the summer, trimming to 270.

"They want me to be skinnier," Diop said. "I can't get any skinnier or they'll push me around."

--F Boris Diaw will sit out roughly the first week of the preseason, resting a sprained ankle he suffered while playing for the French national team.

--G Raymond Felton signed a one-year, $5.5 million qualifying offer that will make him an unrestricted free agent next summer. The Bobcats and Felton's agent couldn't work out a long-term contract agreement, but Felton says his preference is still to remain a Bobcat long-term.

DRAFT PICKS:

Gerald Henderson, G, 6-4, Duke (first round) -- He fills such an obvious need behind Raja Bell that he'd have to be an all-time flop not to be in the Bobcats' rotation as a rookie.

Derrick Brown, F 6-8, Xavier (second round) -- The Bobcats claim he was 20th on their draft board, yet he lasted to the 40th pick. He's a small forward at the NBA level who could play some power forward. He probably makes the roster, but where does he find minutes behind Gerald Wallace and Vladimir Radmanovic?

Robert Vaden, G-F, 6-5, Alabama-Birmingham (second round) -- He was sold, in a pre-arranged deal, to the Oklahoma City Thunder. Considering the Bobcats' financial challenges, can you blame them?
