3. Javonte Green

Whether or not Javonte Green would get many minutes with the Charlotte Hornets is a real question, but he has the outline of a player who could help them, especially by playing hard defense and being a lob threat.

Like Daniel Theis, Green played with Kemba Walker on the Boston Celtics. That was Green’s first chance in the NBA prior to joining the Chicago Bulls.

At 30 years old, Green doesn’t have as much NBA experience as guys who entered the league as teenagers, but he could give the Hornets a nice energy boost on both ends of the court.

4. Lance Stephenson

For the past two seasons, the Indiana Pacers have brought James Johnson on board. He’s been a veteran presence in the locker room for them, giving them an extra oomph. Maybe Lance Stephenson could be that for this Hornets tea.

Stephenson played 41 games for the Hornets during the 2014-15 season, which is when he was teammates with Walker.

Throughout the course of his 10-year NBA career, Stephenson has made a name for himself due to his incessant energy and on-court antics. If he’s interested in being a mentor, the 33-year-old wing would be a fun addition to this CHarlotte squad.
