Bobcats Will Pick No. 4 Overall In NBA Draft

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- For the second straight year the Charlotte Bobcats have failed to land the No. 1 pick in the NBA draft lottery.

Charlotte will choose fourth overall, behind Cleveland, Orlando and Washington.

This year's "loss" wasn't nearly as gut-wrenching as a year ago when the Bobcats, coming off the worst season in NBA history at 7-59, failed to land the rights to the top pick and franchise center Anthony Davis from Kentucky. Unlike 2012, there isn't a consensus No. 1 pick like Davis in the draft, so losing out on the top pick should be a little easier for Bobcats' management to swallow.

But it was still a disappointing outcome for the Bobcats considering they had the second-best odds of landing the top pick.

Charlotte has never selected No. 1 overall.
