Report: Wizards leave Stackhouse exposed to draft

The Charlotte Bobcats on Friday received the official list of players who will be available to them in the NBA expansion draft on June 22 or 23, and the Times has learned that the Washington Wizards left Jerry Stackhouse exposed with three years and $22.5 million remaining on his contract.

One Western Conference team executive said that the Dallas Mavericks left Antoine Walker and his $14.6 million contract unprotected. According to other NBA sources, the New York Knicks' Allan Houston and the New Jersey Nets' Alonzo Mourning were also available.

NBA rules prohibit the list from being disclosed, so the expansion Bobcats, who will play next season, could not comment on the available players.

"We have a number of directions we can take, and over the course of the next 10 days we will thoroughly explore all of our options," Bernie Bickerstaff, the Bobcats' coach and general manager, said Friday.
