Will Dampier Be A Good Fit For LA?

Just as the Boston Celtics singing of Shaq and J. O'neal proved, you can never have too much size.  Although the Ratliff signing was a great pick up and he will play better than Mbenga did, it would still be great to pick up another big.  As good as Ratliff is as a back up that is all he can serve as and nothing more.  He is too old to be considered the type of player who can handle a lot of minutes in case Bynum gets injured (knock on wood). 

I am in no way an expert on the specifics of contracts so I am not sure how it would work if the Bobcats were to infact waive Dampier.  But it wouldn't hurt to at least take a look at him.  Although Dampier being waived still remains to be seen, the signing of Kwame Brown by the Bobcats sure is a good indication of their intentions. 

Also, I know that the Lakers have made great additions this off season but one more wouldn't hurt.  Especially if it means addidng more size. 

I'm using some vacation time to tend to two elderly parents (thanks, Ron Green Jr., for filling in), but when I heard about the Bobcats signing Kwame Brown, I figured I'd blog in:

Some thoughts:

-- Again this is one more indication the Bobcats will eventually waive Erick Dampier's contract to off-load about $13 million in salary responsibility. Sorry if that ticks some of you off (I know you want Dampier to be a trade chip), and they certainly gave up an asset in Tyson Chandler.
