CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Rod Higgins says the Bobcats are interested in adding another impact player this offseason.

And the team's president of basketball operations is optimistic Charlotte has what it takes to land one.

Higgins said Wednesday at a post-season press conference the Bobcats winning 43 games and reaching the playoffs in 2013-14, combined with the success of last year's top free agent signee Al Jefferson and steady development of point guard Kemba Walker should help lure other top-tier players to Charlotte.

Higgins says "if I was a free agent as a player, I would want to go play with good players. Al and Kemba are good players."

He didn't name potential targets.

However, when was asked if he could see the Bobcats adding a player of Jefferson's caliber Higgins responded, "Of course."
