The good news for fans of predictability is that Anthony Davis will almost definitely be the first overall pick by the New Orleans Hornets. After that, things will get really, really shaky, starting with the Charlotte Bobcats' No. 2 pick. David Aldridge reports the Bobcats are shopping their pick and have some people willing to buy:

So in addition to the five or so players that could be up for grabs in that spot -- Thomas Robinson, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Bradley Beal, and Harrison Barnes have all been bandied about as potential Bobcats' picks -- there's apparently five or so teams interested, too. The Bobcats have already done some dealing, taking on Ben Gordon's ugly contract for Corey Maggette and a future first-rounder. It would be a bummer for Charlotte fans to suffer through one of, if not the worst, season in NBA history, only to see their team come away without a top draft pick. So these deals had better be worth it for Charlotte.
