Dampier could stay in Charlotte

Erick Dampier says Charlotte will get the "first opportunity" to re-sign him if the Bobcats waive the veteran center to clear salary cap space.
In a conference call with reporters on Friday, Dampier indicated
he hopes his situation is resolved soon and squashed speculation he
might return to Dallas.
The 34-year-old big man has been one of the biggest chips
available in the offseason because he's in the last year of his
deal and his $13 million salary next season isn't guaranteed.
The Bobcats acquired Dampier from the Mavericks on Tuesday in a
five-player deal. General manager Rod Higgins called it "one of
the most valuable contracts in the league" because it will allow
the Bobcats to clear payroll by waiving him or using him in a
trade.
