The pick has protection up until 2016, and many fans see it as a way to get a cheap, productive rookie or sweeten a deal for a star.
The Bobcats and Bulls have had talks and center Bismack Biyombo was brought up in conversations. Bulls have brought up the Bobcats pick to other teams in the past, but no luck finding the right deal. Biyombo as a backup would be appealing but its hard to imagine the Bulls dealing the Bobcats pick for him. Biyombo's struggled in the NBA.
The Bobcats have alot of picks right now. Their own, Portlands (top-12 prot.) and Detroit's (also protected). Bobcats could be active at the NBA Trade Deadline. Team discussed sending Ben Gordon, Tyrus Thomas to Brooklyn for Marshon Brooks, Kris Humphries. As we were told last week, Gordon and Brooks are both available.
