Trade Deadline Report: Bobcats interested in Bargnani for Gordon

ESPN reports that the Raptors have found another potential partner in a trade for Andrea Bargnani, the Charlotte Bobcats.

This doesn't make sense on the surface. But -- and there's always a but with trade rumors -- if a third team got involved, this could work. You need a team to take on contract from Charlotte -- either Gordon or Gordon and Tyrus Thomas. After that, if the team has some young value to send Charlotte, they can get Gordon, who's still capable, and maybe some picks.

Charlotte seems to be getting more and more active closer to the deadline, especially after the reported kerfuffle with Gordon the other day. Meanwhile, Bargnani is a pretty good bet to get moved; Toronto's just holding out to see the best offer that it can pull. But something like this is close to making sense if more teams get involved.
