The Charlotte Bobcats hold the 12th position in the upcoming NBA draft. My bet is that the team will probably keep the pick. Even though this is classified as a ‘weak draft’ by the analysts, the lottery teams will still be able to find a good player to add. Between my first thoughts on this article and now, there has been a lot of movement of players and who’s rising and who’s falling. The latest mock drafts differ wildly but it looks like guys with momentum are Stephen Curry and Jrue Holiday while teams are beginning to worry about Ricky Rubio and his hefty contract buyout.
It’s my guess that the Bobcats are drafting a shooting guard/wing player. This player will start the year behind Raja Bell, but could gain playing time over the course of the year if Larry Brown likes them. Here are four candidates I think are the most likely picks at the 12 spot.
