(By Rick Bonnell, email@example.com) Looking to find a center, a shooter and possibly a big combo guard, the Charlotte Bobcats' Rod Higgins finally got back to being a general manager Wednesday.With the lockout en route to ending, the NBA gave GMs permission to start discussions with agents and other GMs about transactions that can't be consummated before Dec. 9.
