Which prospects can the Charlotte Hornets feel good about moving forward into their future with and who may be on the move?

When evaluating NBA prospects, the worst thing that you can say for young players, who aren’t rookies, is that you don’t know what you have a couple of seasons in. The Charlotte Hornets are at such a crossroads with a few of the prospects that were supposed to comprise their “young core.”

It hasn’t all been bad, young guys are getting the chance to play heavy minutes and the team is playing better than expected.

The optimism among the fan base is a refreshing sight and there is a genuine hope for the future, something that could not be said the past three seasons when the team was squarely battling NBA mediocrity.

The Charlotte Hornets are 15-24 this season, and still in the mix for the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. Last season, they finished with a record of 39-43, finishing two games out of the eighth and final playoff spot.

Some of the young talent on the roster have been promising, while some others haven’t been too promising. We do still have a lot of games left to play, though, so things can change quickly. That’s been proven before in this league.

With that being said, let’s take a look at some of the young guys, what they offer and what they don’t bring to the table, in order to see who is worth moving forward with and who still have plenty of questions surrounding them moving forward.
