I'd also like to see if we sign Darius Miles. He made a strong gesture and if he's anything near to what he was that would be a great pick up. We lacked depth in the playoffs.

Why? Because he would fit right in with other fellow busts? While we're at it, let's go pick up Darko or Nikoloz Tskitishvili...

I really can't think of any plausable trade scenario that would bring CP3 to Charlotte. There's pretty much no trade scenario within reason that makes NO trading Paul to any team seem like a good idea. If it comes down to the Hornets having to dump Paul's salary though, there's teams that could offer far more than we could (i.e. Devin Harris and the 3rd overall pick).

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- For a team without any picks, the Charlotte Bobcats sure aren't acting like they plan to sit out Thursday's NBA draft.

After working out dozens of draft prospects in the past few weeks, the Bobcats have been talking deals with numerous teams in the past few days. Potential scenarios include something as big as a multiplayer trade that nets a first-round pick to something as simple as purchasing a second-round choice.

General manager Rod Higgins says he's been "very busy" with numerous trade conversations.

The Bobcats have pulled off draft-week deals in each of the last three years. And with the Bobcats close to the luxury tax, a figure owner Michael Jordan has said they won't go over, a relatively cheap rookie contract may be an attractive option.

Indiana has been trying to move their pick at #10 for an established PG. Maybe a sign-and-trade of Felton plus some pieces could bring back TJ Ford and the #10 pick. Maybe not, but at the very least its something to keep an eye on.

That would be nice, they would have a bunch of options at that point. Could move the pick to the wolves for two of the late first rounders or something similar to that. Who would do you think they would take at 10 if they traded felton for the pick, I doubt it would land TJ and the pick with out something else thrown in..

Getting someone like TJ Ford thrown into the deal won't take much as long as the Pacers would be out from under his contract. Its not even particularly bad, but cap relief now is always preferable to cap relief in the future.

As for who we might pick, I'd imagine we'd probably go with a big man. Tyrus says he wants to sign long-term, so PF should be taken care of, but we really don't have a quality center. Chandler and Mohammed can fill the void if they stick around (they could both opt out and look good as trade bait) but Cole Aldrich would be a good choice, or even Cousins, Monroe, or Davis if they fall.

I like Nightmare Ekpe Udoh out of Baylor. I would actually rather wheel and deal with the T-Wolves with that 10th pick. Here it goes. Raymond Felton S/T to Pacers for 10th overall. T-Wolves trade 16th pick to Grizzlies for 25th and 28th. We trade Boris Diaw and the 10th pick to the T-Wolves for Al Jefferson, 25th, 28th, and 45th pick.
