2012 NBA Draft Trade: Cleveland Cavaliers, Charlotte Bobcats Talk Trade For Bradley Beal

A big 2012 NBA Draft trade could be in the offing, and St. Louis-born birthday boy Bradley Beal could be the subject--the Cleveland Cavaliers, who initially hoped they could draft Beal at No. 4, are reportedly talking about trading the No. 4 and other picks to the Charlotte Bobcats for their No. 2 and picks. That would guarantee the Cavs Beal, and give the beleaguered Bobcats a chance to make some better picks while taking the same guy they want at No. 2 at No. 4.

The Bobcats reportedly have no special preference among the non-Anthony-Davis players in the Top 5, which allows them a lot of leverage in making a trade. It's odd, but the Washington Wizards' recently reported desire for Bradley Beal is going to give Michael Jordan's seven-win squad a chance to capitalize on their own lack of weapons; they need everything, so they could draft anybody. But anybody who wants to draft Bradley Beal is going to have to go through them, first.
