Diop gets traded again

Diop is traded to Charlotte

And I quote from the Yahoo News:

"DeSagana is the type of player that has a natural athletic ability to block shots, rebound and defend," Charlotte general manager Rod Higgins said. "This is someone we feel will add size, depth and experience to our power positions."

Diop is one lucky player. He gets traded to the Nets for the Jason Kidd deal to help match salaries. He was a vital piece as he had an expiring contract. His contract expires and lo and behold the Mavericks sign him back. The deal is quite understandable considering Dallas lost a bit of their toughness after losing their leading shot-blocker. Then again, it's supposedly so easy to find a replacement. Who wouldn't want to play in Dallas?

Things have been pretty funny ever since I read the first news about Diop being on the trading block. Lo and behold, a team has actually traded for Diop! And of all the teams, it's the Charlotte Bobcats. Yes, the same Charlotte Bobcats that has Michael Jordan behind some of their mind-boggling transactions.

And why is it that the decision makers always has to sound funny whenever they defend the players that they traded for no matter how stupid it looks? Please.
