After making a deal with the Detroit Pistons that sent Ben Gordon and a future first round draft pick to the Queen City, the Charlotte Bobcats might not be done making moves.
Charlotte sports radio host Marc James recently tweeted something interesting:
NBA Source just told me the Bobcats will probably trade the 2nd pick. This is gonna be a an Exhilirating 48 hours for Charlotte. #Bobcats

He didn’t elaborate, but I have to assume that means “the Bobcats will probably trade the 2nd pick” to Cleveland for the fourth and 24th pick.
If that pick happens, the Cavs will almost certainly draft Bradley Beal and Washington is said to have their eye on either Beal or Michael Kidd Gilchrist.
That would leave either Thomas Robinson or Harrison Barnes to the Bobcats at number four, and Robinson would be an absolute steal at that spot after what he did during his pre-draft workouts.
Still, I think Charlotte wants to draft Barnes, and trading down makes that move less of a risk in the eyes of a ton of sports journalists.
With the 24th pick Charlotte could either draft a guy like Royce White or Jeff Taylor, or trade the pick for future picks.
