Hornets' Dwayne Bacon: Second-round selection of Hornets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bacon was selected by the Hornets with the 40th overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft.

The Florida State product has good size and 6'7", and he led Florida State in scoring last season at 17.2 points per game while shooting 45.2 percent from the floor. The Hornets are relatively shallow at shooting guard heading into the offseason, so Bacon would appear to have a decent chance of making the team out of camp.

Hornets' Jeremy Lamb: Rough road ahead
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lamb has more competition for playing time heading into the 2017-18 season after the Hornets selected Malik Monk with the 11th overall pick of the 2017 NBA Draft.

Lamb was already struggling for playing time in Charlotte, never having averaged more than 20 minutes per game over his five-year career, and the selection of Monk makes it very hard to believe Lamb will buck the trend in the season ahead, even with Marco Belinelli being shipped to Atlanta days earlier. If Monk struggles to begin his rookie season, the Hornets still have far more incentive leaving the rookie on the court since they're not exactly a team that will be in contention for a title in the near future.

Hornets' Malik Monk: Drafted by Hornets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Monk was drafted by the Hornets with the 11th pick of the 2017 Draft.

Monk, a microwave scorer with elite athleticism, posted 19.8 points, 2.5 rebounds and 2.3 assists for Kentucky last season. Though he's slightly undersized for a shooting guard (6-4 with a 6-3.5 wingspan), he could be the perfect candidate for a significant sixth-man role. Jeremy Lamb could see a reduced role as a result of Monk's selection.

Hornets' Dwight Howard: Sent to Charlotte in trade
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Howard and the 31st pick in the 2017 NBA Draft will be traded to the Hornets in exchange for Miles Plumlee, Marco Belinelli and the 41st pick, Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reports.

Howard has two years left on a three-year, $70.5 million deal, so it appears the Hawks didn't like the return they were getting from him and will instead dump his salary off to the Hornets. With Cody Zeller still in fold in Charlotte, Howard enters a slightly more crowded rotation at the center position and it remains to be seen how those minutes will be allocated between the two. Howard should be considered the favorite to start, but the fact that Zeller is still around and Frank Kaminsky occasionally sees time at center as well, it could mean a slight decrease in minutes. In 74 games with Atlanta during the 2016-17 campaign, Howard averaged 13.7 points, 11.8 rebounds, 1.4 assists, 1. steal and 1.6 blocks across 32.1 minutes.
