McRoberts, a Duke alumni and all but certified bruiser, has currently played in 41 games this season and is averaging 3.9 points and 3.7 rebounds per contest. Warrick, who provided some quality minutes for Charlotte in the seasons early going with injuries to Tyrus Thomas and Byron Mullens, has averaged 6.9 points and 3.2 rebounds -- albeit that production has spiraled downward in recent weeks.
If nothing else, the Bobcats at least saved money in swapping Warrick's $4 million dollar salary for McRobert's 3.135 million dollar expiring contract. Although Warrick's contract was essentially set to expire at seasons end as a team option.
So while there may be a slight financial incentive in the deal, it appears as if both teams were simply looking for a change of scenery.
