The Hornets are looking like they are pretty promising, as currently they are the 8 seed, here are some moves I believe they should do to improve their roster:

  1. Sign Richaun Holmes: Richaun Holmes is someone that the Hornets could really use. He is a big, physical guy that would be a great fit next to PJ in the backcourt, and would be a good player for Lamelo to throw dimes to.

  2. Extend Terry Rozier: Rozier is someone who is having his best season of his career, averaging in the 20s for points and having a career high in FG%. He and Lamelo have been a really good fit next to each other in the backcourt, and there is no reason the Hornets shouldn't bring him back.

  3. Bring back Zeller, Devonte, and Monk: Zeller is someone who can be a good rebounder off the bench, and this should definitely be something that the bench could use. Devonte and Monk are two players that can provide good shooting off the bench, and the bench should be good to go for next season if these players are brought back.

  4. Let Brad Wannamaker and Bismack Biyombo walk: Since the Hornets now have Richaun Holmes, and Cody Zeller is back, that defeats the purpose of bringing back Biyombo, because there would be too many bigs on the roster. They should also let Wannamaker walk because this team has too many guards on their roster, and it isn't always the brightest idea to keep too much of a position on the roster.

IGNORE THOSE PLAYERS GOING TO THE THUNDER, I AM ASSUMING THAT THOSE PLAYERS WOULD BE LET GO IN FREE AGENCY.

After making these moves, the Hornets are getting themselves a squad of:

Lamelo-Rozier-Hayward-Washington-Holmes with a bench of Devonte-Monk-Bridges-Zeller
