Nets Should Bag Erick Dampier As Backup To Lopez

The Charlotte Bobcats waived veteran center Erick Dampier yesterday, voiding one of the NBA's most unique contracts and avoiding the luxury tax. Dampier is in the last year of a seven-year deal, $73 million deal, but the $13 million for this season wasn't guarantee because he failed to meet the playing time requirements. Now Dampier is a free agent and could sign with any NBA team. He has good size for a pro center and will help lopez with rebounding and blocking shots. Lopez lack this a lot during the regular season last year. The Nets need to put fear down the middle of the lane. GM Billy King should look in to this matter immediately. I sure a NBA team will pick up Dampier before the season start.
