“With the Ninth overall selection in the Two-Thousand Eight NBA Draft, the Charlotte Bobcats. . . ”
Well, what exactly happens won’t be known until a week from now. We can narrow down a few options, though.
Option A: The Bobcats select an inexperienced big man that they draft entirely on potential, but have not seen in personal workouts (SI.com / Charlotte Observer). None of these guys have a recognizable name, so there’s no simple choice.
Option B: Charlotte drafts a point guard that may or may not fit their new system (Augustin/Westbrook/Bayless)
Option C: The ‘Cats make a big trade for a veteran talent.
Option D: Jordan and the crew choose to move down in the draft and make an exchange with a team for a player with a cap relief contract or position themselves for a move later in the off-season.
