The Charlotte Bobcats‘ current roster stands at 14 men, but there is no saying that every single one of those players are confirmed to be on the team through training camp and the preseason. There are still players open in the free agent market that I think could greatly benefit this Bobcats team, and the good thing is that not one of these players will cost too much.
Not everyone on this roster right now is safe, especially the guys on the bottom of the depth chart, and that is something players will start to realize as the season draws closer. If the Bobcats do decide to release a player before the season starts, here are three remaining free agents they should consider signing to fill an open roster spot:
Terrence Williams would be a good fit for this Bobcats team because he will be able to provide depth for the shooting guard position (Cats only have two shooting guards in their depth chart). If Williams was signed, he would be behind backup Ben Gordon in the shooting guard depth chart.
Having him as your third-string two-guard is an absolute steal considering he still is only 26 and is a pretty good scorer off the bench, and is a half-decent rebounder. Williams last played for the Boston Celtics, but was waived on June 30 to create cap space.
Marquis Daniels would be a solid veteran for this team to have on their roster. There is no question Marquis can still play and is still effective. Last year on the Milwaukee Bucks, Daniels averaged 5.5 points a game and 2.5 rebounds a game. Daniels would be a good addition for this team at the small forward position because he still is a guy that shines at times.
Plus, the Cats need depth at the small forward position, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Jeffery Taylor and James Southerland isn’t the most experienced group of forwards, so having a veteran in there like Daniels to help them out and take 5-10 minutes in the game to let the young guys rest wouldn’t be too risky for the Cats. Daniels is a hot and cold player, but having the veteran presence could really help Charlotte out.
Chris Wilcox would play the center position if he was to be signed by Charlotte. He would either be in front of or behind veteran Brendan Haywood in the depth chart. Wilcox would be a great addition for this Charlotte team because he is a very solid rebounder, and the Cats want to have as many rebounders as possible after their poor rebounding totals last season.
Wilcox is also a pretty good scorer when he gets hot, and would make a great impact while getting a few productive minutes on the court in a Bobcats uniform.
