The Charlotte Bobcats are experiencing something that is still relatively new to the franchise — winning. The team is in the thick of the Eastern Conference playoff picture for the first time in years and Charlotte seems to be going all in to bring a winning culture to the city.
One way the Bobcats plan on getting better immediately, is to make a trade at the deadline. Unlike years past, the Bobcats are expected to be buyers, not sellers, and they have a very distinct type of player they’re looking for. According to Marc J. Spears from Yahoo! Sports, the Bobcats are actively pursuing the acquisition of a perimeter scorer on the trade market.

Charlotte has already made it known that Ben Gordon can be had in a trade and have been slowly showing a willingness to part ways with draft picks this summer as well as former first-round draft pick Michael Kidd-Gilchrist. A lot can happen between now and the deadline, but the Bobcats look like they’ll be active and are chasing a very specific type of trade.
