2013 NBA Draft: Victor Oladipo Wouldn't Be Bad Pick For Charlotte Bobcats

It appears that Victor Oladipo might be the No. 4 player to go in the NBA draft. If that’s the case, he’ll be the man for the Charlotte Bobcats.

The consensus remains that Nerlens Noel and Ben McLemore will be the top two overall picks. Both could be gone within the top three picks. After that, it’s anyone guess specifically on how the players will go in the draft. After the top two picks, no one seems to agree on the rest of the order, not even the top five.

But if Oladipo is available, the Bobcats could not go wrong with that pick. It’s not perhaps the best choice for the Bobcats’ needs, but Oladipo would still provide some good things for Charlotte.

The Bobcats and other teams like Oladipo’s athletic qualities plus his excellent defensive game. He can help out any team in many different ways. He’s the type of player Charlotte needs.

He definitely played a key role for a powerhouse Indiana team that won the Big Ten title. He averaged 13.6 points and 6.3 rebounds a game. But the fact that he shot 60 percent from the floor and 44 percent in threes is a very attractive stat.

He may not go top three but Oladipo has enough talent to make him top five. The Bobcats should plan on taking him if he doesn’t go in the top three. There’s no else in the draft that shoots that well and can be as explosive as he is. He could help the Bobcats win a lot of ballgames.
