Late-April Hornets NBA mock draft roundup

We’re in the throes of mock draft season now, folks. More NBA teams are eliminated from the playoffs and kicked into the offseason with each passing day, important pre-draft events like the Portsmouth Invitational Tournament and Tampa Bay Pro Combine have been held and the lottery, combine, and draft night itself are rapidly approaching.

It feels like a belabored talking point after three offseasons, but the Hornets need to find a center this summer. Montrezl Harrell is a free agent, Mason Plumlee’s contract is partially guaranteed next season, Nick Richards is a restricted free agent and while Kai Jones grew a lot during the year, he doesn’t yet profile as the starting big.
