02:02 PM ET 06.26 | Yesterday a rumor spread like wildfire that the Charlotte Bobcats were shopping Michael Kidd-Gilchrist despite the fact that they drafted him just last offseason. But Bobcats general manager Rich Cho came out on Tuesday to vehemently deny the rumor that the former first-round draft pick was being shopped, saying yes they've gotten calls about the young prospect but no they're not at all interested in trading him for anyone. It's draft time which means rumors are going to swirl around no matter what general managers try to do. But it was a foolish notion to think that the Bobcats were going to bail on Kidd-Gilchrist after having him on roster for just a single season and had they traded him it would have made the front office look even more foolish than they're already perceived to be.

Does it really matter bro? You keep MKG or trade, whatever, this team has NO chance of improving. You'll still be lottery pickers next year, so see you next draft season. That's the only time this team is EVER relevant.

The GOAT needs to rid his front office of yes men. He has a rep of being a poor talent evaluator see Kwame and Morrison. Clifford is the next coach to be out when he fails to turn chicken crap into chicken salad.

Sounds like someone in the Bobcats' organization has some sense, which is quite refreshing. It has not been determined how good or bad this young man will be, and there was nothing in the draft which would have justified a trade. Good for you Bobcats!
