Charlotte Hornets Early NBA Draft: Onyeka Okongwu is a defensive option

While the Charlotte Hornets continue to struggle as of late, the team could be looking at potentially having a top-5 pick in this year’s draft. It’s been a while since the Hornets had a high lottery pick, but luckily for them, there is a lot of lottery talent in the 2020 draft class.

The center position seems to be a definite need heading into the offseason this year. The team has struggled in the frontcourt, as they have allowed 51.6 points per game in the paint; this ranks them as the 26th team in the league.
