Bobcats forward Gerald Wallace traded to Blazers

The Charlotte Bobcats have agreed to trade forward Gerald Wallace to the Portland Trail Blazers for center Joel Przybilla, forward Dante Cunningham and two first-round picks. Charlotte owner Michael Jordan clearly is in rebuilding mode, and has done solid work so far. Only Stephen Jackson remains as a high paid player, and you can bet MJ will kick him to the curb the minute it’s possible. Portland’s end of the bargain is high-risk, high-reward. “Crash” is an All-Star when healthy and will be a great replacement in Roy’s spot until he can get back to full strength. But when healthy is the operative term for Wallace, because it seems like he never is. And that’s just what the injury-cursed Blazers need, another guy who can’t stay out of the trainer’s room.
