The Charlotte Hornets have not had a good offseason as they have with this one since Michael Jordan took over as controlling owner.  They took a huge leap forward with the 4 picks they made during the draft and with the signing of Gordon Hayward although some would say they over paid for him.

Since the Charlotte Hornets traded Kemba Walker to the Boston Celtics they have been lacking star power. They have not had a player who can take over the game and drag the team to a win the way Walker could since he left.

It is not as though general manager Mike Kupchak made any significant deals on draft night. All he did was select players in the order that was allotted to him, with the exception of trading for the 42nd pick by giving up a 2024 second-round draft pick.

The Hornets ended up with four picks in the 2020 draft. Their first was pick No. 3 where they selected LaMelo Ball. They then had two second-round picks (Vernon Carey Jr. and Nick Richards) before trading for the third which was Grant Riller. They have several holes in their roster, some of which were addressed with this draft.

Some of the areas the Charlotte Hornets needed to address with the draft.

While the Hornets guard play last season was dynamic with Terry Rozier and DeVonte’ Graham, they are undersized with both players standing only 6’1″. The Toronto Raptors have a similar-sized backcourt but both their players play above their size, the Hornets pair do not.

The next area the Hornets needed to address was their issues at center. While Cody Zeller is a solid worker, they need a rim protector as they gave up the highest field goal percentage in the NBA last season.

How do you think the Hornets did in the draft and free agency?
