Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting the Bobcats and Pacers are advancing talks on a deal that would send T.J. Ford to Charlotte for a package including D.J. Augustin.
If so, this is madness. Larry Brown and the Bobcats must be stopped. T.J. Ford has a terrible contract and has a reputation for being a selfish player. D.J. Augustin has struggled, but is still young and is better than Ford already. To complete the trade, Charlotte would likely have to either throw in DeSagana Diop (unlikely because of his contract), or Nazr Mohammad (their starting center). Um, yikes.
For the sake of us all, please don’t let this happen.
UPDATE: Thankfully, this trade did not in fact happen.
