NBA: Bobcats wait on Radmanovic
MIAMI ó The Charlotte Bobcats won’t see until at least today what they got in Vladimir Radmanovic.
The Serbian forward was not eligible to play against the Miami Heat on Sunday, one day after Charlotte acquired him for the former first-round draft pick Adam Morrison and reserve guard Shannon Brown.
Radmanovic was in Miami and hoping to play, but the Lakers did not get physicals for Morrison and Brown done, so the deal couldn’t be officially complete.
He could play Monday when the Bobcats host the Los Angeles Clippers ó and when he does make his debut, he’ll be the 23rd player to wear a Charlotte uniform this season.
“I just hope it works out for everybody,” Bobcats coach Larry Brown said before Sunday’s game.
Morrison ó the No. 3 pick out of Gonzaga in the 2006 draft, which made him Michael Jordan’s first selection with the Bobcats ó and Brown were enough convince the Lakers to trade the 6-foot-10 Radmanovic, who averaged 5.9 points and 2.8 rebounds in nearly 17 minutes per game with Los Angeles.
The little-used Morrison was only averaging 2.6 points in his final 11 games with Charlotte.
