With a ton of salary cap room, and plenty of holes to fill, the Charlotte Bobcats promised to make a splash in free agency this offseason.
And make a splash they did, but it didn't come cheap.
The Bobcats agreed on terms today with free-agent center Al Jefferson on a two-year deal, with a player option for a third, worth a reported $41 million. The deal immediately fortifies a Charlotte frontcourt that was amongst the worst in the NBA last season.
But there are sure to be detractors. Jefferson fills a need but comes at a high price and has his flaws. There are definite pros and cons to this deal, and here we will explore some of them.
