At 24-30, the Charlotte Bobcats are clinging to the final seed in the Eastern Conference playoff race, and are eager to make a move to maintain that postseason spot before Thursday’s trade deadline. The team has been to the playoffs just once in its 10-year history, and owner Michael Jordan has made a playoff berth the team’s top priority. One target that has emerged, league sources told Sporting News, is shooting guard Anthony Morrow, a player who interested the Bobcats before he signed in New Orleans last summer. Morrow leads the league in 3-point shooting, at 48.0 percent, which would boost a Charlotte roster short on shooters. The Bobcats are 17th in the NBA in 3-point percentage and 28th in 3-point attempts. Sporting News

With the NBA’s trade deadline two days away, the Cavaliers have shown interest in acquiring the rights of point guard Pierre Jackson, among other deals, league sources told the Akron Beacon Journal. Jackson is a 5-foot-10 guard out of Baylor who is now caught in limbo in the Development League. Jackson was drafted in the second round last year by the Philadelphia 76ers and traded to the New Orleans Pelicans. The Pelicans never signed him, but still possess his draft rights. Jackson is averaging 29.1 points and 6.2 assists with the Idaho Stampede. He set a D-League record last month by scoring 58 points in a victory against the Texas Legends. Akron Beacon Journal
