Charlotte sends the #4 pick in the draft, and its second-round selection (#33) to the Clippers in exchange for the #2 pick. The Bobcats also agreed to select Peja Drobnjak (who is my man in NBA Live 2004, by the way-- he's even on my customized Bobcats team) in the expansion draft.
So Charlotte is guaranteed to either get Emeka Okafor or Dwight Howard. Wow.
Here's a transcript of Bobcats coach/GM Bernie Bickerstaff's press conference announcing the deal. Wheels inside wheels, I tell you.
[Edit: Dwight Howard, that is, not Josh Howard. Also added a link to the press conference.]

Or the Bobcats might decide to now swing #2 to Atlanta for #6, #17 and perhaps a player, thus turning 4,33 into 6,17, Drobjnak and perhaps another player. If Childress is who they are targeting, they probably can get him as easily at 6 as they would have at 4.
