I read on the Lakers (some time ago) and the Bobcats web sites that it is 2008, as well as ESPN.com from back on 12-6-2004. However, a couple of other sites like nbadraftnet.com and dxdraftexpress.com state it is 2009, with some footnote regarding a 2005 "amendment". I don't know if that means the trade was amended or if the website statement was amended. I know the original announcements said 2008 and I can't imagine why the Lakers would let it slip a year due to an "amendment". Charlotte's record will improve over time, resulting in a worse pick and the Lakers surely know that.
