With the season suspended indefinitely, let’s take a look at the Charlotte Hornets’ draft picks from the past ten drafts.
Throughout the years, the Charlotte Hornets have made some tough choices in the NBA Draft. In the last ten years, the Hornets have only had minimal success with their draft picks.
For the past few seasons, the Hornets have remained in the lottery. The Hornets’ amount of lottery picks comes from the team’s inability to make the playoffs. In the past ten seasons, the Hornets have only made the playoffs twice.
Moreover, with the NBA season still suspended, this raises the question of if the Hornets will get to finish their season. If the Hornets do not get to finish the rest of the season, then the team is looking at possibly getting the 7th pick in the draft.
While finishing the rest of the season could affect what pick the Hornets will get in the draft, nothing is a given, as the New Orleans Pelicans won the lottery in 2019. The Pelicans were projected to get a mid-lottery pick, but they got lucky and got the #1 overall pick.
The Hornets have a chance to get a top pick in this year’s draft, but fans may wonder if the team will use their pick to get a good prospect? The Hornets have made some questionable draft decisions in the past, but those times may be behind us.
Without further ado, let’s rank the Hornets’ previous ten first-round draft picks.
