What should the strategy be?

Easy. Best Player Available. Listen, I know I have said missing on this pick might be just as catastrophic as nailing it would be a game-changer, but you have to go for it. Whoever is Best Player Available on their board should be the pick.

There are a couple “safer” options if you can even call it that I would not mind being selected, but if you see potential superstar prospects, you gotta go for it. Even if he is a boom-or-bust pick in the organization’s eyes, if the Front Office thinks he will pan out and feel that the risk outweighs the reward, go for it.

Why? Because a superstar in Buzz City can turn this franchise from a sorry laughing stock into a contender for years to come. Of course, just nailing this offseason does not guarantee future success, but this could be a huge turning point for the future of this franchise.

If in the future with this team they become a solid contender, this could be the offseason we look back on and say, “Hey, this was it, this offseason made the Hornets team we are proud of and is turning into a bonafide winning team.”

I’m not here to spread false hope, but I really believe in the current FO and the coaching staff. If the player development stays strong, I make shrewd signings and trades and absolutely crush it in the draft, we may have a winner here in the Buzz City in the future. And boy, would it be a LONG time coming.
