There isn't a team in the league that needs a No. 1 pick more than the Charlotte Bobcats—which is why they just signed Al Jefferson to prevent that from happening.
It's been forever since the Bobcats were even remotely competitive. All it would have taken is one more year of stinking to change the direction of the ship. Even a top-four pick could net them a franchise-changing talent, in my opinion, of course.
But the Bobcats signed Jefferson, an expensive, talented scorer who can probably make the Bobcats just a little too good.
Among Philadelphia, Dallas, Milwaukee, Washington and Phoenix, there could be some pretty bad teams next year. With Jefferson, an improved Kemba Walker entering year No. 3 and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, the Bobcats have a trio that could threaten the team's chances of finishing at the bottom.
