“We’re very active – our owner wants us to be active,’’ [Charlotte GM Rod] Higgins told the Observer in regard to the Feb. 21 trade deadline.
Higgins said owner Michael Jordan has given Higgins and general manager Rich Cho “the green light to go out and make this team better…I don’t think there’s any limits to what we’d try to do.’’
That could range from pursuing a star player, to adding a complementary big man, to facilitating some deal between other teams to acquire a future draft pick. Higgins and Cho know, following a 10-29 start, there’s still a lot of work to do between now and a playoff appearance.

Biyombo played 36 minutes (the most since January 6 when he played 34) on his way to two points (1-5 FG), nine rebounds and a steal.
Biyombo hasn't advanced much beyond his rookie season. His...

Another tough NBA fight, another difficult loss for Bobcats fans to swallow. Sure, Charlotte gave Houston a run for it’s money on Monday night, but in the end dropped their second straight game and (once again) started what could develop into another lengthy losing streak. Despite forcing James Harden into difficult shots (he shot just [...]
