Eight potential candidates for the Bobcats' pick (fourth overall), listed alphabetically:
|Name||College||Ht.||Wt.||Key statistics from last season||Rick Bonnell's comment|
|Anthony Bennett||UNLV||6-8||240||16.1 ppg., 53% FG pct.||Will play some at either forward spot; he's very physical.|
|Trey Burke||Michigan||6-1||187||18.6 ppg., 46% FG pct.||Both in size and playing style he's very similar to Bobcats point guard Kemba Walker.|
|Alex Len||Maryland||7-1||225||11.9 ppg, 7.8 rpg||A skilled pick-and-roll center with solid defensive instincts.|
|Ben McLemore||Kansas||6-5||190||15.9 ppg., 42% 3-point FG pct.||Competent as both driver and 3-point shooter but somewhat disappeared in NCAAs.|
|Nerlens Noel||Kentucky||7-0||206||4.4 bpg, 9.5 rpg||Surgery for a torn anterior cruciate ligament likely will keep him out until January.|
|Victor Oladipo||Indiana||6-5||213||13.6 ppg., 42% 3-point FG pct.||Might play the hardest of any high pick in this draft.|
|Otto Porter Jr.||Georgetown||6-8||197||16.2 ppg., 42% 3-point FG pct.||He has ideal size and the right skill set to be an NBA starter at small forward.|
|Cody Zeller||Indiana||7-0||230||16.5 ppg., 8.0 rpg||A more athletic version of older brother (and now-Cleveland Cavalier) Tyler|
