Report: Bobcats interested in trading Ben Gordon for Andrea Bargnani

Looking to unload troublesome and expensive guard Ben Gordon, the Charlotte Bobcats are hoping to find a suitor in the Toronto Raptors, ESPN.com's Marc Stein is reporting.

According to Stein, Charlotte is "a suitor" for Raptors forward Andrea Bargnani, the team's former No. 1 draft pick who it has been open to unloading.

However, the Bobcats appear to be more interested in such a deal than the Raptors, who already have a number of talented wing scorers.

But financially, the trade could have similar appeal to the rumored Bargnani-for-Carlos Boozer swap, as Gordon's contract expires a year before Bargnani's. Gordon's $12-plus-million and Bargnani's $10-million salaries could be swapped one-for-one.

Gordon, 29, is averaging 12.6 points on 42.8-percent shooting this season compared to career averages of 16.2 and 43.5.

The 27-year-old Bargnani's 14.8 points and 3.8 rebounds per game are his lowest numbers since his second year in the league. The 7-foot Italian has struggled with injuries in recent years, playing just 31 games last season and 25 thus far this season.
