Bobcats trade up to No. 7 to draft Bismack Biyombo


Chad Ford of ESPN details the Bobcats-Bucks-Kings trade:

"The Bucks will get Sacramento’s Beno Udrih, Charlotte’s Stephen Jackson and Shaun Livingston and the 19th pick from the Bobcats in Thursday night’s draft, while Charlotte obtains the No. 7 pick from Sacramento and forward Corey Maggette from Milwaukee.The Kings will get guard John Salmons from Milwaukee and the 10th pick in the draft. Charlotte will keep the No. 9 pick."

The trade is kind of a downer if the Pistons wanted Bismack Biyombo. Jonathan Givony of Draft Express:

"Not believing any of this Tristan Thompson at 7 stuff. Charlotte did this trade to jump ahead of Detroit and take Biyombo. If he’s there."
