NBA Rumors: Charlotte Bobcats Close To Dealing No. 2 Pick To Cleveland Cavaliers

(rantssports.com)

"After the 2012 NBA draft lottery awarded the New Orleans Hornets with the No. 1 overall pick, the Charlotte Bobcats were put in a very weird position. The team with the worst winning percentage in NBA history, albeit in a lockout shortened season, would now be relegated to picking the second best player in the draft, whoever that may be. Kentucky Wildcats center Anthony Davis has long been deemed as the consensus No. 1 overall pick, and for good reason. But now that the Bobcats hopes of obtaining a franchise-changing player like Davis are dashed, they really do not have a solid backup plan.
Players like Kansas’ Thomas Robinson, or North Carolina’s Harrison Barnes, are not seen to be franchise cornerstones like Davis is. So one of the Bobcats options is to possibly trade their pick to another team, thus moving them down in the draft and possibly acquiring multiple first-round picks. Many teams have gone this route and, for a select few, it has worked. According to rumors this is now the route that the Bobcats are close to taking.
The Bobcats are rumored to be close to swapping picks with the Cleveland Cavaliers, who own the No. 4 and 24 picks in the first round of the 2012 NBA draft. It is still uncertain who the Bobcats would take at the four spot but, it would have to be someone who they know is not going to be picked the three teams in front of them, the Washington Wizards, Cavaliers (if they do wind up trading with the Bobcats), and the Hornets. The Bobcats would reportedly swap their second pick with the Cavs 24th, and it is still unclear what else, if anything, would be included in the trade.
The Cavaliers on the other hand are feverishly looking to move up so they can get their hands on the hottest prospect in the 2012 NBA Draft, Florida guard Bradley Beal. Beal is skyrocketing up every teams draft board and the Cavaliers, even though they have a franchise guard in Kyrie Irving, feel that Beal is just too good of a prospect to pass up. Drafting Beal will not come without its headaches though as Irving has made it known that he would like to see Harrison Barnes in a Cavs uniform next season. But if Beal really is that good can the Cavs pass him up just to satisfy Irving?"

Hmmm. Interesting...Im not surprised. I heard a long time ago that Irving was really wanting Barnes. Question is, is if we end up trading 2 for 4 and 24 will there be anything else included, such as players, later picks etc

We would still end up with Beal, Robinson, or Barnes so it makes sense. Let everyone else decide and pick up an extra pick

Im sure Robinson, Barnes or MKG will be there at no.4.
This is how I see it going:
NO: Davis
Cavs: Beal
Wash: MKG/Robinson

I meant would the Cavs add anything else to the deal with the 4 and 24. To be completely honest, I don't know how I feel about Melo. He was consistently beefy at Syracuse and whenever I watched him...I wasn't necessarily. What is his ceiling?

Beal is such a hot prospect that we should trade down to avoid him? Awesome.

Although I am on the Barnes, Beal, and T-Rob bandwagons and one of those 3 would still there at 4 so why not.

I dno also. By what the article is saying pretty much we're just swapping picks.
I dont really like that idea bc at 24 and 31, theres not much big drop off.
Unless the Bobcats really want Fab Melo hoping hes there then I guess do it, but at 24 to me I dont see anything different from taking a player like a John Jenkins or Darius Miller at 31.

Thats what im talking about. If Beal is really that hott, why not take him?
I just read an article on Barnes, and Sorenson compared him to Carroll. Just a shooter, nothing else. Im wondering now.

this. I would be ecstatic if we could trade the 2nd for the 4th and 24th, even if we need to throw in our second rounder (which has a huge chance of being a bust)

If Cavs trade up it's for Beal. We'd be left with MKG, Barnes or T-rob. Which I still be happy

Not really sure the #24 pick would be enough, I dont know who you can pick there who is worth it. Maybe Sullinger if he falls

If they take Tyrus or Giop with this deal I'd be really happy.

I think you would be suprised. Go check out some mock drafts, there are alot of guys that have some good talent that will be left.
I really hope this happens though.
