Report: Charlotte Bobcats shopping second overall pick in NBA draft

NBA

Multiple sources tell Alex Kennedy of HoopsWorld.com that the Charlotte Bobcats are looking to move the second overall pick in the June 28 draft.

Kennedy writes that Bobcats officials have yet to contact Kansas forward Thomas Robinson, whom some project as the second pick after Kentucky forward Anthony Davis. Instead, Kennedy writes that Charlotte has met with players expected to be available later in the first round, such as North Carolina center Tyler Zeller.

The Bobcats don’t seem to be in love with anyone at this point, which means a different team could be selecting second on draft night.

Charlotte’s track record in the first round is not exactly stellar, with the likes of Raymond Felton, Adam Morrison and D.J. Augustin littering the team’s ledger. And let’s not forget that Michael Jordan took Kwame Brown first overall in 2001 when he was with the Washington Wizards.
