Marc Stein (@ESPNSteinLine) is reporting that the Bobcats, in their increasing persistence to trade Ben Gordon have approached the Raptors about a Bargnani trade.

All-Star Weekend trade rumble: Charlotte's growing determination to move Ben Gordon has presented Toronto w/another Andrea Bargnani suitorMarc Stein @ESPNSteinLineMarc Stein @ESPNSteinLine
Sense I get, though, is that Toronto ain't gonna bite on Bargs-for-Gordon deal. Raps have Terrence Ross & Alan Anderson playing well there
Gordon easier to take back $-wise than Boozer w/one less year on deal, but Raps unlikely to just trade ex-No. 1 overall pick for sake of it
This would certainly not be a deal that would provide the Raptors would a player they could use, and it's good to know that the Raptors are not rumored to be seriously considering this deal.
What I wonder is what Charlotte would be willing to include as incentive that could make it worthwhile? Draft picks? Prospects?
I personally don't think they could include enough to make it worthwhile for the Raptors...but curious how others view this?
