The Charlotte Bobcats are motivated to trade Ben Gordon, which creates another possible destination for the Toronto Raptors to send Andrea Bargnani.

The Raptors have actively been seeking a trade of Bargnani for several weeks.

The Raptors, however, are unlikely to trade Bargnani for Gordon given the presence of Terrence Ross and Alan Anderson at shooting guard.

Gordon is on a shorter contract than Carlos Boozer, another player linked to a Bargnani trade.
