Bobcats select Michael Kidd-Gilchrist with number two pick

Charlotte, NC (WBTV) -The Charlotte Bobcats selected small forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist with the second pick in Thursday's NBA draft. Despite receiving several offers from other teams looking to move up in the draft the Bobcats decided to stay put at number two to get the very athletic forward out of Kentucky who has a knack for scoring at the rim especially when he is running out on the fast break. He is known to play tough defense with a motor that never seems to stop.

New Head Coach Mike Dunlap is high energy and should have fun teaching 6'7 Michael Kidd-Gilchrist who is known as a guy who will make hustle plays even when his shot is not falling. If there is a knock on Gilchrist it's his perimeter shooting that can be inconsistent at times, but the good thing is he has other intangibles that can get him through a rough shooting game.
