CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - The Charlotte Bobcats have signed their
first round draft pick.
      The team announced Saturday that forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist
of Kentucky signed a deal worth about $4 million for his first
season, according to the union negotiated rookie pay scale.
Kidd-Gilchrist averaged nearly 12 points and more than seven
rebounds in his only season with the Wildcats.
      The Bobcats chose Kidd-Gilchrist with the second overall rick.
Kidd-Gilchrist's Kentucky teammate Anthony Davis was chosen first
overall by New Orleans.
      Charlotte picked Vanderbilt forward Jeff Taylor in the second
round with its only other pick in the draft. He has not signed.
      The Bobcats head to Las Vegas later this month to play in the
NBA Summer League.
