Default Charlotte Bobcat 2nd Round Pick

Did we trade Kareem Rush to the Bobcats for a 2008 or 2009 2nd round draft pick? The original press release stated 2008, but I have seen a couple reports that say it was a 2009 draft pick. There a quite a few PF and PF/C in that draft range (37-38) and we sure could use one of those.

I believe it's still the 2008 pick. What reports have you read?

"2005 second round pick (#37-Ronny Turiaf), 2008 second round pick.."

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.
