HoopsHype BJ Mullens + Trade rumors
The Charlotte Bobcats are acquiring 7-footer B.J. Mullens from the Oklahoma City Thunder. The Bobcats are giving up a second-round pick in 2013 and are receiving cash considerations. Charlotte Observer
Because the Thunder is not taking back a player, league rules allow Oklahoma City to also receive a trade exception of approximately $1.38 million, which is Mullens’ $1.28 million contract plus an additional $100,000. Oklahoman
Mullens, who played one year at Ohio State before turning pro, has played sparingly the past two seasons with the Thunder. He averaged 1.5 points and 1.3 rebounds. Obviously the Bobcats need depth inside after Kwame Brown chose to sign with the Golden State Warriors. Boris Diaw is scheduled to start at center. Charlotte Observer
