The Mavericks have traded Erick Dampier, Matt Carroll and
Eduardo Najera to the Bobcats for Tyson Chandler and Alex Ajinca.
It’s not known whether Charlotte will waive Dampier,
which would allow him to re-sign with the Mavericks. The Bobcats most certainly
will not pay Dampier’s $13-million salary for the 2010-11 season. But
they could elect to move him along in a trade.
The Mavericks now have a solid center by committee of
Chandler, Brendan Haywood and Ian Mahinmi.
