CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Michael Jordan's Charlotte Bobcats have selected Kentucky small forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist with the second overall pick in the NBA draft, marking the first time two players from the same school have gone first and second overall.
The Bobcats had been in trade talks with several teams regarding the No. 2 pick before making Kidd-Gilchrist their highest draft pick in franchise history since selecting Connecticut center Omeka Okafor second overall in 2004.
The Bobcats finished with the worst winning percentage in the league in last year, but lost out on the rights to select consensus No. 1 pick Anthony Davis after losing the NBA lottery to the New Orleans Hornets. The 6-foot-7 Kidd-Gilchrist played only one season at Kentucky, where he helped them to a championship along with Davis.
