The Charlotte Bobcats are deep into their rebuilding process right now. After having the worst season in NBA history in 2011-12, they made some progress in 2012-13 with 21 wins. Their core currently includes 19-year old Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (second pick in the 2012 draft), 23-year old Kemba Walker, and the big man duo of Bismack Biyombo (20 years old) and Byron Mullens (24 years old). The Bobcats could really use a big splash in free agency with their cap space to bring in some veterans.

Even if the Bobcats can't manage to attract a big-name free agent this summer, they can target expensive veterans via a trade with all of their cap flexibility. In a draft that isn't considered to be very top-heavy, the Bobcats are reportedly looking to move their pick (No. 4 overall) to bring in a veteran player. Could that player be Miami Heat big man Chris Bosh?The Boston Globe is reporting Bosh could be a prime candidate:

The Charlotte Bobcats are looking to make a splash this summer and are open to trading their first-round pick in a package for an All-Star-caliber player. There are rumors the Heat will be looking to deal Chris Bosh, and the Bobcats, who are under the salary cap and could accept Bosh's near-maximum deal, could be a prime candidate.

(Via HoopsHype)

I'm not really sure why the Heat would be thinking about trading Chris Bosh while they're in the middle of the NBA Finals, and once the Finals are over, they could be sitting on back-to-back championships if they find a way to beat the San Antonio Spurs four times. If that's the case, it doesn't seem likely they'd break up a core that has the potential to three-peat the following season.

But if they are targeting big name, high-priced veterans like this report indicates, you can see Rich Cho and Michael Jordan are serious about galvanizing this rebuilding process. A lot of teams sit around and continue to stockpile young players, hoping to either flip them for a veteran down the road or hit a homerun with the development of that young player like the Oklahoma City Thunder plan has shown. The Bobcats giving up potential in order to have more substance on their roster is a good thing.

They just have to target the right veterans to mix with their young guys as they attempt to return to the playoffs

 

What? why.. wait what..

The only reason I wouldn't is because he wouldn't be around long. And that's a huge reason.

 

So nah, not worth it. If it could somehow be guaranteed that he'd stick around, then sure. But probably not gonna happen.

No brainer, if Miami is willing to part way if Bosh. Would benefit Kemba in a ton of ways.

This would be down right idiotic... I employ those who actually want Bosh to quit being short sighted...

Here are the benefits of Bosh

- We are decent for one year...

Negatives of Bosh

- He eats up all of our cap space for this year.
- He will leave after his contract is up in 2014 (meaning we traded our 4th overall pick for a one year rental)
- We are no longer in the Wiggins/Parker/Randle sweepstakes...
- He's ugly raptor/ostrich looking mother fuc*ker

There is absolutely no reason to make this trade.

So we get Bosh and the 29th pick, which when Bosh walks in free agency ultimately becomes the 29th pick for the 4th pick... brilliant.

fug no. Worse than the Tyrus Thomas experiment. The only thing Bosh can do is make ugly/weird faces
