Found June 13, 2012 on Waiting For Next Year:

Alex Kennedy of Hoopsworld reports that the Charlotte Bobcats are shopping the second overall pick in the upcoming NBA draft, despite team statements that they are set at taking a player at two-

Interesting. What exactly is A LOT? Multiple picks? A combination of picks and players?

Then there is also this from Kennedy-

“The New Orleans Hornets are shopping the tenth pick. They’d move it if the right deal came along. They want a guard,” said a league source.”

To those that can decipher these numbers, they create a more visceral reaction, as they stand for shame and humiliation, [...]

NBA Mock Draft: After Anthony Davis, Picture Muddles Quickly for Lottery Teams

When the Charlotte Bobcats lost out on the top choice in the NBA draft lottery, an uneducated observer might have said, "Big whup." The Bobcats, who had a 1-in-4 chance of securing the No. 1 pick, merely had to settle for the second selection. Surely there will be enough talent available to grab a pretty good player at No. 2.
