As the Charlotte Hornets prepare for the upcoming offseason, questions linger about the status of nearly every player on the roster. We’ll breakdown the possible futures of each one as the team moves forward.

The Charlotte Hornets‘ first year of their rebuild, whether it is over or not, should be deemed a success. The young players already on the team showed improvement, the draftees all showed that they have upside to remain in the NBA long-term as they all have impressed, and the team looked competitive in the final stretch before the season was suspended, picking up wins against the Houston Rockets and Miami Heat.

Looking to build on this momentum and build a formidable contender in the future, the Hornets need to be making decisions favoring progress, as opposed to mediocrity. As any fan knows, it’s about time that started happening as it’s been way too long watching this organization flounder amongst the dregs of the Eastern Conference.

Everybody on the roster should be evaluated based on what they can bring in the future, rather than just the next season, as should potential targets for Charlotte.

No player is safe on this team, including any of the young guys. Depending on what direction the team wants to move, you could be seeing a lot of different faces or the exact same ones come this time next year.
