Bobcats hold first round of pre-draft workouts


The Charlotte Bobcats hosted five players for pre-draft workouts Friday morning.

The group of big men included Virginia’s Mike Scott, Gonzaga’s Robert Sacre, Louisiana State’s Justin Hamilton, Southern Mississippi’s Maurice Bolden, Detroit’s Eli Holman and Belmont Abbey’s Kyle Phillips.

GM Rick Cho and President of Basketball Operations Rod Higgins attended the workout, along with team scouts.

Sacre had the sound bite of the day during his post-workout interviews. When a reporter with the Bobcats asked what he knew about the organization he laughed and said, “Well you guys drafted Adam Morrison from Gonzaga so that’s good .”

Out of all the guys that were there, Scott probably is the only one that has a shot to get picked up by the ‘Cats.

The great series of tubes (Internet) has him going anywhere from very early to somewhat late in the second round of mock drafts. Sacre is projected to go in the middle of the second round.

Still, I think the mostly likely choice for Charlotte and their second round pick is either Draymond Green from Michigan State or Kevin Jones from West Virginia. Both are projected to be available when the Bobcats pick.
