CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Bobcats general manager Rich Cho says it will take “something enticing” for the team to trade away the No. 2 overall pick in the NBA draft.

So far nothing tantalizing enough has come along.

That could change before the start of Thursday night’s NBA draft though. While Bobcats president of basketball operations Rod Higgins says the team “likes the No. 2 pick” he’s quick to concede there’s been “a ton of interest” from teams interested in acquiring the pick.

He says the team will keep its options open.

The Bobcats got a head start on shaking up their roster Tuesday night when they traded Corey Maggette to Detroit for Ben Gordon and a future first-round draft pick in what’s expected to be the first of several roster moves this offseason.
