3 intriguing trade targets for Charlotte Hornets at deadline

Since rebranding after the 2013-14 season from the Charlotte Bobcats to the Charlotte Hornets, not much has changed with the NBA franchise in Charlotte, North Carolina as they still have yet to find a winning formula. The last time Charlotte was in the Eastern Conference Semifinals was in 2002 and since then, they have made the playoffs just three times, losing in the first round in each of those seasons.

This season, the Hornets have started 6-8 and could potentially make the playoffs this season. The future is very bright for this Hornets organization given the amount of youthful talent they have around veteran All-Star Gordon Hayward. 

Devonte’ Graham, Miles Bridges, P.J. Washington and rookie LaMelo ball are all 25 years old or younger and have a lot of upside for this franchise moving forward. All four of these guys can go out on any given night and not only score in double-figures, but impact the game in different ways. 

If the Charlotte Hornets are going to make the playoffs this year though, they have to be willing to be “buyers” at the trade deadline and look to not only bolster their frontcourt, but add another high-level talent to pair with Gordon Hayward and their youthful core. With plenty of cap room to bring in another All-Star like talent, will the Hornets make some significant moves at this season’s trade deadline?

Let’s take a look at three intriguing trade targets the Charlotte Hornets should consider nearing the trade deadline.
