2020 Hornets prospect scouting report: Jahmi’us Ramsey

2020 Hornets prospect scouting report: Jahmi’us Ramsey

Jeffrey Becker-USA TODAY Sports The Hornets can shore up their wing depth at the top of the second round with a player many thought would be a lottery pick just a few months ago. The Charlotte Hornets need help on the wing. Their best two guard is maybe more of a point guard and their best small forward is more of a power forward. Malik Monk’s long term future has been a question mark for three years now, and that doesn’t look to be changing anytime soon. The Martin twins are fine, but they’re certainly not making anyone say that the wing position is set for years to come. The...

Mitch Kupchak has a track record of drafting All-Stars with Top 10 picks

Mitch Kupchak has a track record of drafting All-Stars with Top 10 picks

Photo by Andrew D. Bernstein/NBAE via Charlotte’s GM holds the No. 3 overall pick in the 2020 draft, and Hornets fans should start getting their hopes up. Last week I evaluated general manager Mitch Kupchak’s track record drafting around the No. 32 pick, and the results are pretty solid. Knowing Mitch has a history of spotting talent in the early second round should get us excited when thinking about what he might be able to do with the Hornets No. 3 overall pick in this year’s draft. Let’s see what Kupchak’s draft history with the Lakers tells us about his ability to spot...

Hornets news and notes from the last week or so

“I don’t know what to talk about” | Bob DeChiara-USA TODAY Sports It’s been slow on the Hornets news front, but there are a few minor things out there on the Internet. We’re in a dead period of Charlotte Hornets news. The NBA playoffs are in full swing, but that obviously has nothing to do with the Hornets. I’m sure we’ll start getting reports of the Hornets meeting with and working out prospects, but in the meantime, not much is going on. So I looked around the Internet and found some stories worth sharing a few tidbits on. The first is something you probably heard plenty...

Mitch Kupchak has a solid track record drafting around pick No. 32

Nell Redmond-USA TODAY Sports If history repeats itself, the Hornets GM will find a capable role player with the team’s early second round pick. Mitch Kupchak was general manager of the Los Angeles Lakers for 17 years before joining the Charlotte Hornets in 2018. One of the most important duties of an NBA GM is to ensure the scouting department absolutely nails the draft, especially during a rebuild. Kupchak’s long tenure with the Lakers gives us plenty of data points to reveal how effective he and his scouting departments have been in correctly assessing talent and drafting the...

Finance). I have literally no idea what this means at all. Not a damn clue. Clearly, I’m not a numbers guy — that’s kinda why I type letters onto a computer screen for a...

2020 Hornets prospect scouting report: Xavier Tillman

Photo by Mitchell Layton/ One of the smartest players in the draft, Tillman would be an ideal target if Charlotte goes big with the 32nd pick. After some indecision on whether or not to declare for the 2020 NBA Draft, Xavier Tillman has decided to keep his name in the draft pool and forgo his senior year at Michigan State. Coming off of a season in which he was named to the All-Big Ten second team and awarded Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year, Tillman’s stock rose to the point where he’s firmly entrenched as a top-40 prospect, thanks in part to Spartans head coach Tom...
