The NBA trade deadline is Thursday, and the Charlotte Hornets have a few options that they can go with.
With the trade deadline occurring in under ten hours, the Charlotte Hornets are beginning to run out of time to make a deal. As of late, the Hornets have generally waited until the day of the deadline to make a trade.
The Hornets have not made a trade since 2018, and that was on the day of the deadline. Last season, the Hornets were linked to many possible trades, but the team simply ran out of time to get a deal together.
This article will act as a guide on the trade rumors that we have heard so far regarding the Charlotte Hornets. Without further ado, this is what we know so far.
