Bobcats get 50th overall pick in Draft
The Charlotte Bobcats have obtained the 50th overall pick in the 2006 NBA Draft, held on June 28 at Madison Square Garden, it was announced today by Bobcats General Manager and Head Coach Bernie Bickerstaff. Orlando elected to pass along their right to Sacramento’s pick to the Bobcats. The draft pick completes the trade that sent former Bobcats guard Jason Hart to Sacramento on August 8, 2005.
Orlando earned Sacramento’s pick following a series of trades and had the option of using the selection this year or in 2007, depending on when the Magic deferred the pick to Charlotte. The Bobcats traded their own 2006 second round pick to the Los Angeles Clippers as part of the deal that brought Melvin Ely and Eddie House to Charlotte on July 14, 2005.
