2011 NBA Mock Draft: How the Charlotte Bobcats Should Draft

Running a Charlotte team with many needs, who will Jordan select?

Now that the book is officially closed on the 2010-2011 NBA season and the Dallas Mavericks have emerged as champions, the NBA moves to draft mode.

I won't kid myself and pretend to know every team's best interests in making a full mock draft, but I will give you a rundown on Charlotte's draft with a fresher take.

The Bobcats own the 9th, 19th, and 39th overall picks in the draft, and will need to use them wisely in order to return to the playoffs.  

Most mocks have the Bobcats going with a power forward such as Bismack Biyombo, Tristan Thompson, or Marcus Morris at the 9th spot overall, and either another power forward such as Markieff Morris, or a European big man at the 19th overall pick.

My plans do not include any of the above, and I am very confident in my unorthodox selections.

Charlotte's roster includes DJ Augustin at point guard, Gerald Henderson at shooting guard, Stephen Jackson at small forward, Boris Diaw and Tyrus Thomas at power forward and, sadly, Kwame Brown at center.  

Stephen Jackson is aging, Boris Diaw is average, Tyrus Thomas has underachieved, and Kwame Brown is...Kwame Brown.

With so many needs, who should Charlotte select?
