Bobcats use trade, draft to begin rebuilding
Question of the Day
Jackson’s departure leaves Charlotte without its captain and leader. A volatile player who collected technical fouls but also wasn’t afraid to take big shots, Jackson stayed away from off-court problems that had plagued him in earlier stops and averaged 18.5 points last season despite several injuries.
Maggette, who has a similar contract to Jackson and is owed just over $21 million over the next two seasons, failed to become Milwaukee’s sixth man last season following ankle surgery. It’s uncertain what kind of role the former Duke star will play on a team that will need scoring.
The Bobcats gave up the 19th pick to the Bucks in the Jackson trade. Charlotte also owned a second-round pick, 39th overall.
The Bobcats, who brought in former Portland general manager Rich Cho to the front office last week, made it clear they were looking to deal before the draft. And the moves may not be finished.
