Report: Bobcats interested in J.J. Hickson

The Charlotte Bobcats surprised some by choosing Kentucky's Michael Kidd-Gilchrist over Kansas' Thomas Robinson with the second pick in last week's NBA Draft. Now, the reason behind that decision is becoming clear - The Charlotte Observer's Rick Bonnell reports that the Bobcats have interest in a free agent that plays Robinson's power forward position.

Hickson, 23, started last year with the Sacramento Kings, but was waived and played the rest of the season with the Portland Trail Blazers. Hickson averaged a career-high 15 points per game in 19 appearances with Portland, 10 of which came as a starter. The 2011-2012 season was Hickson's last under his rookie contract.

The Portland Oregonian reported last week that the Blazers would not extend a qualifying offer to Hickson, meaning the Blazers do not have the right to match any other team's contract offer.
