The Charlotte Bobcats are giving off quite a few indications, according to the rumor mill, that they're interested in moving the second overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft.

NBA Draft rumors are, seriously, probably the funnest rumors to keep track of on a year-to-year basis. The 2012 edition looks like it should be especially exciting, however, considering the early rumors indicate that trades might start to happen nearly as soon as the night begins with the second overall pick of the Charlotte Bobcats.

Multiple reports coming out of the NBA Draft Combine in Chicago indicate that the Bobcats apparently aren't in love with anyone in particular with the No. 2 pick. That doesn't mean a trade is necessarily imminent, but it certainly seems to mean that Michael Jordan and the rest of the Bobcats' brass are considering all of their options in what seems to be a one-stud draft.

Furthering this report, it seems that the Bobcats took an interest in interviewing players out of their high draft range, like Tyler Zeller, while in Chicago this week. It always make sense to cover all of the bases, of course, but Charlotte's giving quite a few indications that they're interested in moving away from the top portion of the draft.
