Prospect scouting report: Admiral Schofield

Prospect scouting report: Admiral Schofield

The community’s selection at 36 overall, Schofield would bring some toughness and outside shooting to the Hornets wing rotation. The At the Hive community was tasked with voting on the Hornets selection at 36 overall in our community mock draft, and you all selected guard Admiral Schofield out of Tennessee. Not only does Schofield have arguably the best name in the draft, he also brings a skill set and intangibles that should help an NBA team immediately.

Darius Bazley (9%), Jontay Porter (8%), and Deividas Syrvidis (7%) get honorable mention as well....

Prospect scouting report: Nassir Little

Prospect scouting report: Nassir Little

With a heavy Tar Heel influence in the front office, it wouldn’t be surprising if the Hornets selected a UNC product in the first round. The Charlotte Hornets are loaded with UNC connections. Chairman Michael Jordan, General Manager Mitch Kupchak, and Assistant General Manager Buzz Peterson all attended school and played basketball at Chapel Hill. The team spending two lottery picks on UNC teammates Raymond Felton and Sean May back in 2005 has stuck in the team’s reputation for 14 years. Combine those two, and you get a lot of people assuming Nassir Little is a lock for the Hornets’...

Prospect scouting report: Tyler Herro

Prospect scouting report: Tyler Herro

The sharpshooter from Kentucky is typically mocked a little after the Hornets, pick but they could be enticed by his offensive skill. The Charlotte Hornets need outside shooting. They may also need a wing to replace the potential of Jeremy Lamb in free agency. Although he’s typically projected to go a bit after the Hornets pick at 12, Tyler Herro checks both of those boxes. Measurements Height: 6’4” without shoes, 6’6.5” in shoesWingspan: 6’3.25”Standing reach: 8’4.5”Weight: 192 pounds Strengths: Shooting stroke, play making potential, effort level Tyler Herro’s main...

Prospect scouting report: Sekou Doumbouya

The Hornets could take a big swing on an uber talented European prospect should he fall to them. The Charlotte Hornets have been mired in mediocrity for awhile, resulting in several picks at the back end of the lottery. Most players available in this range are expected to be solid yet unspectacular pieces, but there are always a few prospects that provide a chance for big upside. One of those prospects this year is Sekou Doumbouya, should he drop a few spots further than expected.

Prospect scouting report: Tacko Fall

He big. We’ve talked about it on a here a lot. The Charlotte Hornets have a problem at the center spot.

Prospect scouting report: Dylan Windler

Prospect scouting report: Dylan Windler

The Hornets could bolster their forward position with arguably the draft’s best shooter. The Charlotte Hornets need shooting. Kemba Walker is a virtuoso ball handler and shot creator, but too often he was hampered by a lack of shooting around him. If the Hornets get some draft luck, they could immediately shore up that weakness with arguably the best shooter in the draft, Dylan Windler. Measurements Height: 6’6.25” without shoes, 6’7.5” in shoesWingspan: 6’10”Standing reach: 8’8.5”Weight: 196 poundsVertical: 29” standing, 37.5” maximum Strengths: Shooting stroke,...

Prospect scouting report: Isaiah Roby

The Hornets could use a second round pick to shore up their wing depth. The Charlotte Hornets have two second round picks in next weeks NBA Draft. They could elect to use one of them to add some athleticism and depth to the forward position. Isaiah Roby fits that bill. After playing in mostly a reserve role in his first two seasons at Nebraska, the former 3-star recruit put himself on the NBA radar in his junior season.

Kemba Walker talks free agency, reiterates that Charlotte is his first priority

Kemba Walker talks free agency, reiterates that Charlotte is his first priority

The three time All Star spoke with the media at his basketball camp. Charlotte Hornets point guard and pending free agent Kemba Walker spoke with the media during his basketball camp today. He largely reiterated many of the same things he said in his interview with The Athletic, but there were a few more interesting nuggets to be heard. First, Walker apparently keeps getting asked about whether or not he wants to stay in Charlotte no matter how many times he says yes. Top notch reporting people. Asked Kemba if he still wants to be in Charlotte. "I don't know how many times I can say...

Prospect scouting report: Bol Bol

He was the fan selection in the community mock, so we’ll take a deeper look at what he brings to the table. In our community mock draft, the fans voted on who they wanted the Charlotte Hornets to select. Their answer- Bol Bol. Bol is a arguably the most high-risk high-reward prospect in this draft class. His skills at his size are almost unprecedented, but he comes with questions over his body and his mentality.

Hornets news and notes, 6/12/2019

A couple minor bits of news have come out in the past 48 hours or so. A few things have happened in Charlotte Hornets world over the last few days. Here’s a quick rundown. Kemba Walker is part of the 20 player training camp roster for Team USA’s entry into the FIBA World Cup. He, Kyle Lowry, and Damian Lillard are the only three point guards on the roster, so there’s a good chance he makes the final roster. According to Ian Begley of SNY.tv, Walker is expected to remain with the Hornets should they offer him a max contract. Adrian Wojnarowski reported that the New York Knicks,...
