So the trade deadline passed and the Charlotte Bobcats made a small deal, sending Hakim Warrick to the Orlando Magic to take a look at Josh McRoberts. What’s next, beyond the quiet passing of another bad season? Consider: The 2013 draft: The good news is the Bobcats could have two lottery picks – their own plus the Portland Trailblazers’ should Portland’s pick be outside the top 12. That would complete the trade that sent Gerald Wallace west in 2011.
