Get To Know Charlotte Hornets 2nd Round Pick Vernon Carey Jr.

Meet 2x Florida’s Mr. Basketball The Charlotte Hornets selected the 19-year-old Duke Freshman and Florida native Vernon Carey Jr. with the 32nd pick in the 2nd round of the NBA Draft. Carey Jr. is a rim running big that offers a lot of bounce and energy on the boards, the type of player that should complement #3 overall selection LaMelo Ball in pick and roll situations. Vernon Carey Jr. was a 5-star recruit out of Fort Lauderdale, Florida at his high school NSU University School (yeah, I know…) Carey Jr. averaged 21.7 points per game and 9.0 rebounds per game in his senior...

The Charlotte Hornets chose LaMelo Ball in this year’s draft and it seems like Terry Rozier may have already been dealt, underneath the table. There is a reason for fans to believe that Terry Rozier has already been traded out of Charlotte(or at least informed that will not stay in Charlotte). I predicted that Rozier […] Charlotte Hornets: Will Terry Rozier be dealt soon in trade? - Swarm and Sting - Swarm and Sting - A Charlotte Hornets Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Friends, I’m absolutely shocked at how negative the At the Hive community is about the Charlotte Hornets signing Gordon Hayward to a four-year, $120 million contract. As of the writing of this article, only 45% of you were “excited”, 20% were “indifferent”, and 35% were “disappointed/angry” based on this poll. I’m speechless.
