The Charlotte Hornets have a gaping hole at center. Earlier this week, I offered two names that could be a long-term solution for the team in Myles Turner and Ben Simmons.
Charlotte Hornets: 3 more trades to fix the center position
Today, though, I’ll be highlighting three more trades, each with a different player, that the Charlotte Hornets could explore.
There are a lot of different targets the Hornets could look to trade for, but for today’s purpose, we’ll explicitly be looking for players that may not have a long-term future with their current team(s) – whether it be because of fit, contract, timeline, etc.
The Charlotte Hornets will, in all likelihood, become buyers at the trade deadline, especially if this current roster can keep up the winning. As of right now, the Hornets are 5th in the Eastern Conference with a record of 9-7. Charlotte is coming off of back-to-back wins against the Eastern and Western conference leaders (Wizards and Warriors, respectively).
The Charlotte Hornets are going to be building around LaMelo Ball and Miles Bridges in the long-term – and the team currently employs Mason Plumlee as the starting center – something that will not be sustainable come playoff time.
Without further delay, let’s get into these trades – we are fixing the center problem.
