An updating list of trades at the NBA Trade Deadline. Posted by EOB staff. 

The Charlotte Bobcats trade Gerald Wallace to the Portland Trail Blazers for Joel Przybilla, Dante Cunningham and two first round picks

Charlotte receives: Joel Przybilla, Dante Cunningham, Sean Marks and two first round picks
Portland receives: Gerald Wallace

Analysis: The Bobcats look to the future, moving Gerald Wallace and his eight figure multi-year contract for the expiring contracts of center Joel Przybilla and forward Dante Cunningham, netting two first round picks in the process. Przybilla, a veteran center who has been slowed by injury, isn't likely to be a major factor for the Bobcats, and has hinted that he might prefer a buyout and/or retirement in the near future. Cunningham, a talented but undersized power forward with a high basketball IQ, had demonstrated the ability to knock down a mid-range jump shot and defend a variety of players both in the post and on the perimeter. Marks is a friendly, fringe NBA center on the tail end of a long career. The Blazers have reportedly coveted Wallace for years, and will add his defensive versatility to a team that features other tough-minded perimeter defenders like Nicolas Batum and Wesley Matthews.

As long as Michael Jordan runs the Bobcats, they will not win.  Just hang pictures of Kwame Brown all over the draft room, hoping to keep Jordan away on draft day.
