Bobcats Acquire Kareem Rush In Trade With Lakers Charlotte has acquired guard Kareem Rush in a trade with the Los Angeles Lakers. The Bobcats will send two second round draft picks to the Lakers – the pick Charlotte received from Atlanta on August 16 and Charlotte’s own 2008 second round selection. ----------------- Well, the Cats finally got that 2-guard they sorely needed and Rush finally gets some PT of which he got virtually none of in LA this year.

A rare win-win situation for both teams... Bobcats had a logjam in the backcourt, although dumping House for Rush may seem pointless at first, he'll be the eventually starter at the 2... for now, it adds some size there and will enable Hart to switch over to the point more often. Lakers get a couple of (likely) high 2nd-rounders for a guy who was getting no playing time behind Kobe, although they don't really have anybody ready to step in at the 2 in case Kobe gets hurt, unless they sign somebody.
