The Charlotte Hornets have nearly completed what’s proven to be an exciting rebuild as the action of the NBA offseason approaches. They still have one glaring weakness to address: a starting center.
Mason Plumlee won’t cut it. He’s a solid rotation player, but he’d be one of the very worst starting centers in the NBA. Montrezl Harrell is also a quality player but at 6’7, he’s not viable as a long-term starting big man.
Karl-Anthony Towns, on the other hand, is. Of course, the Timberwolves are unlikely to pass on him. After making a rare trip to the postseason, they’re more likely to make win-now moves than take any measures to rebuild.
Still, Hornets fans can dream. It’s entirely unlikely that Towns will play in their uniform next season, but nothing is impossible in the modern NBA.
