I completely agree with your point though, Seattle shouldn't have lost the Sonics and deserve a team now.
I think the Bobcats could be good depending on what kind of breaks they get. They have two good young pieces in Michael Kidd Gilchrist and Kemba Walker and will likely get a top 3 pick in this years draft. Take Nerlens Noel if he is available and wait out the rehab. They will likely have another top 3 pick and if they win the Wiggins sweepstakes could be scary good.
SG-Michael Kidd Gilchrist
Not a bad team on paper.
As for the Sonics, I think its time for two expansion teams. One in Seattle, the other in either Kansas City or Louisville.
