The Charlotte Hornets have a lot of talent on their roster when it comes to young players with potential. Who would be on your youth starting lineup?

Everyone loves to see young players get a chance to play on a Basketball team. It just so happens that the Hornets have a variety of young talent on their roster.

Most of the youth on the team has been held back and has been limited to play at times. Can you imagine a possible starting lineup of the young players who make up the Charlotte Hornets‘ roster?

This list is comprised of players who are, or under the age of twenty-four on the roster. Did your favorite youthful players make it onto this starting fantasy starting lineup?


Hernangomez was drafted in 2016 by the New York Knicks. As a rookie, he averaged 8.2 points and seven rebounds per game. This was an impressive stat line that earned him the honors of NBA All-Rookie First Team.

Currently, backup center Willy Hernangomez is averaging 7.5 points and 5.2 rebounds per game for the Charlotte Hornets. With limited playing time, he has managed to put up on consistent nights when he gets more minutes.

While coming off of the bench, Hernangomez has had to share minutes with the seasoned veteran, Bismack Biyombo. In the previous loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers, Hernangomez saw only but seven minutes in the game.

This season, Hernangomez has established himself as a proficient scorer for the Hornets. Willy has also made eight of his twelve threes this season; earning him a percentage of .667 from beyond the arc.

The Hornets more than likely have plans for the five year player out of Spain. Hernangomez has a lot of potential, and he can make an impact when given the opportunity.
