Hornets' J.P. Macura: Inks two-way deal with Charlotte
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Macura signed a two-way contract with the Hornets on Saturday, Jonathan Givony of ESPN.com reports.

Macura -- 6-foot-5 and 203 pounds -- completed his senior year at Xavier last season. He averaged 12.9 points, 4.5 rebounds, 2.9 assists and 1.4 steals across 29.7 minutes per game. The shooting guard also took 3.8 threes per tilt, making them at a 37.7 percent clip. In signing a two-way deal, he'll spend the majority of the 2018-19 campaign in the G-League with the Greensboro Swarm.

Hornets' Arnoldas Kulboka: Selected by Charlotte
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kulboka was selected by the Hornets with the 55th overall pick in the 2018 NBA Draft.

Kulboka is a 6-foot-10 small forward with a versatile offensive skill set. He s currently playing for the club Brose Bamberg in Germany and is expected to stay overseas for two more years before making a move to the NBA, so the Hornets will have to hold onto his rights until then.

Hornets' Hamidou Diallo: Will ultimately land in Charlotte
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Diallo was selected by the Nets with the 45th overall pick and will be traded to the Hornets.

Diallo will be one of the picks sent to the Hornets as part of the Dwight Howard trade that was exercised this week. Diallo likely would have been a first-round pick in last year's draft had he declared, but he ultimately decided to play at Kentucky for a season and his stock took a sharp drop. The 19-year-old is still very raw offensively, as he isn't a great shooter, but he boasts impressive physical tools and elite athleticism that give him plenty of upside at his age.

Hornets' Miles Bridges: Selected by Clippers, traded to Hornets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bridges was selected by the Clippers with the 12th overall pick in the 2018 NBA Draft. Then was traded along with two second-round picks to Charlotte in exchange for Shai Gilgeous-Alexander.

Bridges, out of Michigan State, averaged 17.1 points, 7.0 rebounds and 2.7 assists last season as a sophomore. The 6-foot-7, 220-pound forward projects as a jack-of-all-trades role player. He can attack the lane, finish around the basket and has the shooting mechanics to potentially be a quality three-point shooter at the NBA level (36.4 percent last season on 195 attempts). Questions remain about what position suits him best, however. He doesn't have great ballhandling for the small forward spot, and his lack of length isn't ideal for power forward.

Hornets' Timofey Mozgov: Shipped to Charlotte in pre-draft deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Nets agreed in principle Wednesday to a trade that will send Mozgov to the Hornets along with two future second-round picks and cash in exchange for Dwight Howard, league sources informed Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN. The deal won't be finalized until July 6, when the new salary cap calendar begins, according to Bobby Marks of ESPN.com.

Howard averaged a double-double and blocked 1.6 shots per game while suiting up in 81 contests for the Hornets last season, so his departure leaves a major void in the low post. While Mozgov plays the same position, it's unlikely he'll factor in the team's rotation after lottery teams in the Nets and Lakers largely phased him out of their plans over the past season and a half. Instead, the deal is mostly about the financials, as the Hornets will shed Howard's one-year, $23.5 million deal in exchange for picking up the two years and $32.7 million remaining on Mozgov's contract. The Nets will apparently cover some portion of the money Mozgov is still owed since they're sending along cash in the trade, but the center's cap hit will count on the Hornets' books. The transaction may signal a full-on rebuild for the Hornets, who are also believed to be shopping franchise player Kemba Walker prior to Thursday's draft.
