The Charlotte Bobcats could find themselves in a playoff race (difficult as that is to believe given their record) and knowing this, they’re looking for an upgrade.
According to HoopsWorld’s Alex Kennedy, the Bobcats are looking to trade Ben Gordon:

Kennedy goes on to suggest that the Bobcats have spoken to ‘many teams’ about Gordon and are insistent on moving his $13 million dollar expiring contract.
What exactly they’re in the market for is currently unknown, though a few weeks back rumors leaked suggesting Charlotte was looking to secure a wing defender. Unfortunately, they may be hard pressed to find such considering wing defenders are in demand across the league.
Currently, the Bobcats who sit at 15-20 are seventh in the NBA’s Eastern Conference and are aiming to make the postseason for just the second time in franchise history.
Would be a nice gift for the Bobcats to go out as a playoff team before they become the Hornets once the season concludes.
