Charlotte Bobcats: Three Fringe Players Who May Make Regular Season Roster

The Charlotte Bobcats are doing OK for themselves this offseason. And I say that with the knowledge that they will still probably be one of, if not the league's worst team again this season. However, the additions (and subtractions) they've made this offseason should help to improve one of the worst professional teams in modern sports history.

The Bobcats have added five players this offseason that will likely contribute in big ways right from the beginning. It started with trading SF Corey Maggette for SG Ben Gordon and a first round pick. The team then added two younger, better small forwards than Maggette in the draft with Michael Kidd-Gilchrist at No. 2 overall and Jeffery Taylor at No. 31 overall. They then acquired a solid point guard in Ramon Sessions as a free agent and claimed the 7'0" center Brendan Haywood off of Waivers.

All of these moves dramatically improved the Bobcats roster and gave them depth and options at pretty much every position.

That being said, the team is still weak in a few key areas, and after the completion of their Summer League schedule, there may be a few players getting hard looks from the organization to make the roster for the regular season.
