Hornets coach James Borrego said his team's greatest needs are "rim protection ... length and athleticism ... another playmaker ... [and] shooting."
So, everything? As for rim protection, the Hornets have played 2019-20 with a three-man rotation at center (Bismack Biyombo, Cody Zeller and Willy Hernangomez), but they're giving up the seventh-most points in the paint. Biyombo and Hernangomez will be free agents this summer and Cody Zeller is entering his final year, so the center spot will be critical for Charlotte in the draft and/or free agency.
