The NBA All-Star break starts later this week, as the All-Star festivities begin in Cleveland on Friday night. One of the teams that can desperately use the break in the action is the Hornets, as they are currently 29-29, and have fallen out of the top six of the Eastern conference, as they have lost 6 of the 7. Nick Carboni, the sports director for WCNC in Charlotte, joined the Nick Wilson show to discuss the woes the team is currently experiencing:

The conversation started with the news of yesterday’s trade for former Wizard […]

The NBA trade deadline was expected to be a silent one for the Charlotte Hornets, but shortly after 2:00 PM on Thursday, Shams Charania reported that the team was acquiring Montrezl Harrell from the Washington Wizards in exchange for Ish Smith, Vernon Carey Jr. and a top protected 2023 second round pick.  While this may not be the rim protecting big that that Hornets have been in search, this could be the energy boost on the inside that this Hornet team is needing, especially on the offensive end where this team has been struggling.

The Hornets have hit a rough patch over the two and a half weeks, losing their last five games and seven of their last nine overall. With that, the Hornets have fallen to 9th place in the Eastern Conference after spending a majority of the season inside of the top six in the conference. However, the Hornets do still remain above .500 and are still closer to 6th place in the conference than they are to the 11th spot.

The Hornets are one of the most fun teams to watch in the NBA, as they feature the best offense in the league. One of the reasons is the development of Miles Bridges, who in his fourth season, is the front runner for the NBA Most Improved Player, and is arguably the best game in-game dunker in the NBA. With his improved play, comes the discussion of his contract, as his option wasn't picked up, after declining a four-year, $60 million dollar extension over the summer. Bridges is a running mate of LaMelo Ball, and is clearly a core member of the Hornets future, as they try to build a contender in the Eastern Conference. Michael Jordan has long said that he's not willing to spend over the cap unless the team is a championship contender, which as of today, the Hornets aren't. That has raised the concern, that Miles may walk in free agency this summer. Rod Boone, beat writer for the Hornets for the Charlotte Observer, joined the Nick Wilson show to discuss that, and had this to say:
