After the hiring of Steve Clifford, there is a sense of change and optimism around the Bobcats organization.
There is no question they have a lot of work to do in order to become a playoff contender and this upcoming offseason could take the Bobcats a step closer to becoming a playoff team.
The Bobcats will have $50 million tied with this current roster at the beginning of free-agent season. Charlotte is the worst team in the NBA and has to make large-scale improvements in order to change the fortunes of the franchise.
The Bobcats have the ability to clear up to $21 million in cap space, so they could be spenders this offseason.
Free agency gives an organization the ability to sign a proven player who can make an immediate impact on the team, but if the money is not allocated properly, the franchise could be bogged down with unwanted contracts for years to come.
