This Hornets-Pelicans trade gives Brandon Ingram, Zion Williamson more help

The New Orleans Pelicans recently locked in their cornerstone players. Brandon Ingram signed a max contract to remain in New Orleans and Zion Williamson was drafted with the first overall pick in 2019. Now, it is up to the team to put capable players around them. Could a trade with the Charlotte Hornets be a potential option?

The Pelicans are in a rebuilding phase— meaning they are trading some of their veteran players. This happened quickly in the offseason when they sent Jrue Holiday to the Milwaukee Bucks. This leaves them thin at the point guard position. This is where executing a trade with the Hornets comes into play.

The Hornets have plenty of options at point guard. Terry Rozier was there a big free-agent signing in the past. Devonte Graham had a breakout season in Charlotte and is looking like he is going to be around for a while.

With the addition of LaMelo Ball using the No. 3 overall pick in the 2020 NBA Draft, the Hornets do not need all of the guards on their roster. This means that one of the guys could be on the move this offseason.

If they decide to move one of their backcourt members, Terry Rozier is the obvious choice. Here is a deal that will send him from the Charlotte Hornets with the New Orleans Pelicans with Brandon Ingram and Zion Williamson.
