The Hornets will not be winning a lot of games this season. In fact they will be contending for the the worst record with the Cavaliers. They lost star point guard Kemba Walker in free agency to the Boston Celtics, and ended up with Terry Rozier in return. Rozier, who has been a back up point guard for Boston the last four seasons, seeks to become a starter in the NBA, and will get his chance with the Hornets. Not sure he is worth a $58 million three year contract, averaging 16 points and three assists less than Walker. He has big shoes to fill.

The Hornets still have some veteran players in Nicolas Batum and Marvin Williams, and some young talent in Malik Monk, Miles Bridges,Bismack Biyombo, and Michael Kidd Gilchrist. They have added some prospects in hope of hitting gold. One of their highest hopes is rookie Cody Martin, the versatile rookie forward they drafted in the second round. They also signed his twin brother Caleb. They feel Cody can contribute immediately and has a high ceiling.  Here is to hopes. As is, the Hornets better get used to losing.
