The Charlotte Hornets could aim to upgrade their roster via trade with a team that plays in the Atlantic Division.

Just a few days ago, I wrote an article about some potential players the Charlotte Hornets should target in the Southeast Division. Well, today, we’ll be taking a look at some players that the Hornets could use in the Atlantic Division.

We’ll be looking at some potential trades involving the New York Knicks, Brooklyn Nets, Boston Celtics, Philadelphia 76ers and top-seeded Toronto Raptors.

The Charlotte Hornets are a team that I could absolutely see making some sort of trade this season. They are determined to get into the playoffs this year, and adding some talent around Kemba Walker is clearly a priority right now.

We all know that Atlantic Division is pretty darn good, and has some pretty darn good players. These trades will, of course, not include some of the stars like Kawhi Leonard or Kyrie Irving. I’m trying to be as realistic as I can be, but you can expect to see some solid players that if given the opportunity, could definitely help the Hornets as they continue their quest to bring postseason basketball back to the Queen City.

How nice would it be to have a guy like Kawhi Leonard next to Kemba Walker, though? Hornets fans can dream, right? Maybe one day.

Now, let’s get things started with the rebuilding New York Knicks, who actually have quite a few tradable assets on the roster.
