So Long Marcus

Marcus Fizer was selected by the Charlotte Bobcats today in the expansion draft. Since he was a restricted free agent, his selection automatically makes him an unrestricted free agent, meaning he could sign anywhere. Hopefully the Bobcats sign him so he can get some playing time again.

 I said this when the writing was on the wall months ago, but I'll say again that I only wish the best for him.

Does the team get a trade exemption for his salary since he got selected? Since his was around 4-5 million, that would be a plus. But I'm not sure because of his current contract status. I'll look into that.

Another thing: I've said all along that this would be my favorite course of action. Doubt we'll see it though.
