Bradley Beal is at the focus of what could be either a three-team deal or a bidding war for the Charlotte Bobcats' No. 2 pick in Thursday's 2012 NBA draft.
Andy Katz of ESPN continues to report that Charlotte is close to agreeing on a deal to give up No. 2 to the Cleveland Cavaliers so that the Ohio club can add Beal. ESPN's Chris Broussard reports that the Houston Rockets are also involved, potentially also bidding for No. 2 or looking to land No. 4 in the deal. They have dangled Kyle Lowry in previous attempts to move into the high end of the lottery, most notably in rumors involving the Sacramento Kings.
Additionally, CBSSports.com's Jeff Goodman reports that the Cavaliers are pushing for No. 2.
