4 burning questions for Charlotte Hornets entering 2020-21 NBA season

Over the years, the Charlotte Hornets have been knocking on the door of the playoffs in the Eastern Conference and while they took a step back last season after trading Kemba Walker to the Boston Celtics in a sign-and-trade deal, the Hornets have reloaded with an abundance of young talent and a former NBA All-Star. 

With over $30M to work with in cap room this offseason and with picks No. 3, No. 32 and  No. 56 in the 2020 NBA Draft, the Charlotte Hornets had a lot of options in terms of improving their roster. They did just that with all of their assets and with the emergence of some young, potential stars on the roster last year, Charlotte has the chance to be one of the better young teams in the NBA.

Devonte’ Graham had a breakout second year in the NBA and was one of the league’s most improved players last season as he increased his points per game average by 13.5 points, his assists per game by 4.9 assists, and his three-point percentage by almost 10%. In 63 games for the Hornets last year, Graham averaged 18.2 points, 7.5 assists and shot 37.3% from three-point range. 

With the emergence of Graham as one of the Hornets go-to scorers, they went out and brought in a former All-Star talent to solidify their roster and hopefully lead them to the playoffs for the first time since 2016.

Ahead of the 2017 NBA season, the Charlotte Hornets made a run at signing Hayward then, but he ultimately decided to sign with the Boston Celtics. Now, the Hornets did not take no for an answer twice when it came to signing Gordon Hayward and they made sure they locked him up for the next several years.

Hayward is exactly the kind of player the Hornets needed to add on the wing, but he did suffer an injury this preseason that could be worrisome entering the new year.

There are plenty of questions surrounding Gordon Hayward’s injury and the impact LaMelo Ball will have on this team this year after being drafted No. 3 overall, so let’s dive into the top 4 burning questions for the Charlotte Hornets entering the 2020-21 NBA season.
