Duke

Bobcats might take Henderson

The Charlotte Bobcats are done with pre-draft workouts now, unless they bring back a player or players Monday for a second look. I have this gut instinct the Bobcats will use the 12th pick on Duke's Gerald Henderson or Louisville's Terrence Williams if either one is still available.

I don't know which one they would prefer if both were available, but I'm told they could both be gone. The Toronto Raptors would consider Henderson with the ninth pick, and the New Jersey Nets might like Williams at No. 11.

I don't know what they would do if both are gone, although I'm thinking Louisville forward Earl Clark makes some sense, even if he doesn't fill a need. Or they could draft someone they haven't worked out. They proved last year they would do that, when they selected D.J. Augustin.

With Augustin on the roster and the Bobcats intending to re-sign Raymond Felton, the they look set at point guard. That might have been a factor in who chose not to work out here. Coach Larry Brown said they tried to bring in Syracuse's Jonny Flynn, UCLA's Jrue Holiday and North Carolina's Ty Lawson. None of them did, and another point guard -- Wake Forest's Jeff Teague -- canceled his workout.

Makes me think agents find it hard to believe the Bobcats would use another lottery pick on another point guard this draft.
