Apologies for bumming out Buzz City, but the thing to say about the Hornets’ future might be that no prospective picks have been traded away by them.
They are apparently sent by all offseason paths that are possible . Break the lender and you’re probably paying the luxury tax to get a lottery group. Let him walk, and you’re losing arguably the most popular player in franchise history. Splurge on him Jeremy Lamb, and you could be footing one of the biggest payrolls of basketball. Reduce Walker and Lamb, and also you aren’t returning anyone who averaged even 11 points per game.
They ought to have some cap space in 2020 this summer if the Hornets pinch pennies. This hasn’t been a free-agent destination, and also a Walker passing will leave them without an recruiter.
Cementing Charlotte to the place? Its exciting prospects are Miles Bridges and Malik Monk. The former is a career 37.4 percent shot. The latter possesses rookie averages of 6.8 points and 3.6 rebounds.
If these are the building blocks, then the Hornets may be building a house of cards.
