For the past few days, Hornets fans have been attempting to come to terms with the fact that the team bypassed the upside of Scoot Henderson for the piece that fits the roster best in Brandon Miller. While many have expressed frustration with it, the focus inside the Hornets building has shifted toward free agency, […]

The NBA Draft is just over 48 hours away, and the rumors are heating up, in regards to who the Hornets are going to pick #2 on Thursday night. Jake Fischer of Yahoo! Sports reported earlier today that Brandon Miller has been the favorite during the draft process, with the idea of him being the perfect fit to pair with LaMelo Ball. Earlier tonight, Adrian Wojnarowski reported that Miller is the frontrunner to be the #2 pick, and has been the focus for the Hornets for some time.
The Hornets are set for another selection later in the first round at No. 27 and the No. 34, No. 39 and No. 41 in the second round. Earlier this morning, Mac & Bone discussed some of the names that they have seen and would like to see the Hornets go after with those selections.
Earlier this week, the New Orleans Pelicans said they are interested in trading up to the #2 or #3 pick in the NBA Draft and are willing to part ways with either Zion Williamson or Brandon Ingram to make it happen. The Hornets own the #2 pick and are in the process of determining whether or not to draft Scoot Henderson or Brandon Miller. Today, Michael Jordan agreed to sell his majority stakes in the organization but will stay on through the NBA Draft, and the start of free agency, and before he leaves his ownership role, he may have one more big decision to make.
We're inching closer to next week's NBA Draft, and with the Finals over, that is now the focal point in the basketball world. The Hornets have been preparing for the draft since January, after a brutal start to the season, had them out of playoff contention right off the bat. A disappointing 27-55 record, did payoff when Charlotte did earn the #2 pick in the draft, just barely missing out on generational talent, Victor Webmanyama. With Charlotte being in control of how the rest of the draft will unfold, they have to decide whether or not to draft Brandon Miller, or Scoot Henderson, both of whom would be potential #1 overall picks in every other draft.
We're only nine days away from the 2023 NBA Draft, and yesterday, Shams Charania of The Athletic, reported that the New Orleans Pelicans, are interested in trading up to either #2 or #3, to draft Scoot Henderson. Of course, by now you know that the Hornets own the #2 pick, and it isn't clear what direction they are going next Thursday night. Should Charlotte be interested in trading away the #2 pick, for either Zion Williamson or Brandon Ingram? Both have ties to the area, with both having played their college basketball at Duke and Williamson, being from Spartanburg, SC, and Ingram from Kinston, NC.
With the belief around the NBA, that Miles Bridges will be back in Charlotte for the 2023-24 season, a lot of people are starting to speculate about the possible contract Bridges will receive. Before his domestic violence issue, on the eve of free agency last summer, Bridges was in line to receive a max contract from Charlotte, after Bridges had a career year. After a year away from basketball, Bridges is still in line to get a big payday, as Jake Fischer of Yahoo! Sports, expects him to make around $25 million dollars, and John Hollinger of The Athletic, echoed that belief, saying he could receive a contract worth $29 million dollars annually. Is this right? Or should Bridges be paid less, after his off-the-court issue?
We are officially less than two weeks away from the 2023 NBA Draft, and while the Hornets are still doing their homework on who to take at #2, they have plenty of things that need to be addressed shortly after the Draft as well. With the Hornets being a small market franchise, they operate in a manner that not many people have any insight into what's going on inside that building. One of the few people who have an inside track on what's going on, is Jake Fischer, from Yahoo! Sports, and he joined the Wes & Walker Show on WFNZ to talk about the many things on the Hornets' to-do list this summer.
