The Charlotte Bobcats are experiencing something this year that they are not used to experiencing a lot of — winning. This has the entire franchise gunning for a usually impossible playoff berth and the team isn’t taking their chances lightly. Not only are the Bobcats interested in main the postseason, but they’re interested in making a run there too.
According to NBA guru Chuck Myron, the Bobcats could end up landing not just Evan Turner at the deadline but also Brandon Bass from the Boston Celtics as well.
They appear to be in heavy pursuit of Evan Turner, and they’ve been linked in trade talk to Brandon Bass, Taj Gibson, and others. I think Gibson is a long shot, particularly after Carmelo Anthony’s comments indicating he’s high on re-signing with the Knicks this past weekend, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see them come away with Turner and/or Bass. They want badly to make the playoffs, it seems, and you can’t blame them.
This might be hard to do, but if the Bobcats were serious about wrangling Taj Gibson away from the Bulls. they might be even more serious about acquiring both Bass and Turner. It’s not a lock and far from an easy task, but Charlotte looks like they’re be active over the next three days.
