Charlotte Observer - In a surprising move, the Bobcats waived Kareem Rush. The shooting guard did not play on Friday night against the Bulls.

"We had a conversation, and it ended abruptly," Bickerstaff told the Observer Saturday. "The young man has an abundance of talent, and I hope he realizes that."

"The Bobcats are about two things -- hard work and maximum effort," Bickerstaff said. "With that in mind, we think it's best to go in a different direction with Kareem."

OT: Bobcats waive Kareem Rush!!!

CHARLOTTE, N.C. - The Charlotte Bobcats waived guard Kareem Rush on Saturday.

Rush, who began the season as the team's starting shooting guard, eventually lost his starting position and fell out of favor with coach and general manager Bernie Bickerstaff. Rush did not play Friday night in a loss to Chicago, the second time in the past six games he did not play despite being healthy.

I know he's not eligible for the playoffs, but he would be a nice signing for next season to back VC. Couldn't we use one of our trade exception to sign him off waivers?

Kareem Rush would be good back-up for Vince. Nets should definitely look into it.

He'd only be with the team for 11 games though, he can't play in the playoffs.
Yeah but we can keep him for next yr too.

It wasn't long ago people and GM's thought Rush has promise as a player? It seems this isn't the case anymore. It must really be hard being a part of the Rush family from a basketball dream perspective. Is Brandon Rush next?...........

I've gotta agree but I don't think we can pass up a shooter that good, even if we have to wait a year.

The guy's a talented tease. The Nets have enough O. They just need another Moses Malone at the 4.

How does a talent depleted team like the Bobcats waive you? That's bad news. Guy is close to being blacklisted. WHen you're a role player you have to have effort.

He is inconsistent on the offensive end, invisible on the defensive end and apparently incorrigible everywhere else. Not a recipe for success. On the other hand, didn't Bickerstaff do the same thing with Eddie House?

We could use his shooting touch. Sign him to a two year, 2.1 million dollar contract (min for the remainder of the season, rest for next season to be VC backup), send Wright to Roanoke for a few games so he can play more and adjust, let Rush play Wright's minutes, and when the time comes bring back Wright because Rush could not play in the playoffs
