This may very well be Jamario Moon’s last chance in the NBA as the Charlotte Bobcats have called the struggling forward from the D-League, as reported by SI.com.

Moon has never really been the poster boy of success for any team in the league. It is not as if he could be more than a role player for the Bobcats.

However, it will be interesting to see how they use him in the last leg of the season as 2012 has become more of a self-evaluation for Charlotte than a try at contention. Charlotte never really gave its hopes a chance to make any valuable strides so bringing on Moon is nothing but an experiment at this stage.

More puzzling than anything about the Charlotte Bobcats is that in this period of their demise, they refuse to exasperate all avenues of their roster, such as starting Kemba Walker.

Walker cannot get his footing in this league without experience and Charlotte refuses to give him any. If Michael Jordan expects this young man to be the future leader of this franchise, then he has to allow him to play, or force the hand of those under him to make that decision.

Expect some major moves from the Bobcats this summer. First things first, there will be the removal of Paul Silas as the head coach. He has failed this franchise ridiculously and though given a shell of a roster by his general manager, Silas has not done anything to make his job more solid than fleeting.

Moon will not make much of a difference for Charlotte. No one man will. Still, he may be a decent start to putting some role players on the bench. The Bobcats don’t need any more role players, however. They need starting talent.

Rich Cho may not recognize that.
