Bobcats decision gets tougher after losing lottery


CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — In one heart wrenching moment the Charlotte Bobcats went from having one of the easiest draft day decisions to one of the toughest.

Had the Bobcats won the NBA lottery Wednesday night they wouldn't have thought twice about making Kentucky's Anthony Davis the first pick in the draft.

The No. 2 pick is more uncertain.

Unlike Davis at No. 1, there's no obvious choice with the second pick.

That means extra homework for Charlotte's decision-makers.

President of basketball operations Rod Higgins says the plan is to bring in "at least six players" for workouts leading up to the June 28 draft. Higgins wouldn't say who, but obvious candidates include Kentucky's Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Kansas' Thomas Robinson, Florida's Bradley Beal, Connecticut's Andre Drummond and North Carolina's Harrison Barnes.
