Woj: MJ Wanted Lopez for Bobcats

In a story on the woeful Bobcats, Adrian Wojnarowski recounts how the Nets wound up with Brook Lopez on Draft Night. Lopez, who had fallen through the first eight picks, was Bobcat GM Michael Jordan's choice at #9, and he'd even called Lopez's agent to tell him. But Larry Brown begged for a point guard and Charlotte took 5'-11" D.J. Augustin instead, leaving the 7'-0" Lopez for New Jersey.
