Charlotte Bobcats Claim Brendan Haywood Off Waivers

New, comment

The Charlotte Bobcats have added some much needed size inside, though the way they went about it on Saturday smells of desperation. They're the proud owners of a shiny new Brendan Haywood, the 32-year-old center who was recently written off the cap of the Dallas Mavericks via the amnesty clause.

Whether this claim will provide any kind of value for Charlotte remains to be seen, considering that the amount of their claim bid isn't yet known. Haywood has four years left on his deal, though, and appears to be on the decline between his age and the average numbers he's produced over the last two seasons. He might be a useful player, and the Bobcats might not be paying him very much, but they still have to pay him for the next four years.
