    Fansided: Charlotte Hornets: 3 players entering make-or-break season in 2019-20

    We are in the dog days of the NBA off-season, and while it may seem like the days are going so slow, NBA basketball and Charlotte Hornets basketball will be back before you know it. Training camp begins next month, and the Hornets will begin preseason on October 6th against the Boston Celtics.

    After losing their former franchise star, Kemba Walker, to those Celtics earlier this summer, the Hornets will enter the 2019-20 season with a young core that will likely be building towards the future. It will be a good opportunity for some players to prove their worth, and an opportunity that some players need to grasp.

    Fansided: Charlotte Hornets: PJ Washington has received his NBA 2k20 Rating

    The Charlotte Hornets are only two months away from their season opener, and they have yet to see their lottery pick play. PJ Washington is set to make his debut during the preseason, and NBA 2k20 has already given him his rating.

    According to this year's edition of NBA 2k, Washington will be tied for the lowest rating among the lottery picks with a 72 overall. This is considerably low for a lottery draft pick.

    So far, Washington is the lowest confirmed overall on the team for the Hornets. That could change when players like Cody and Caleb Martin receive their rating.

    At the Hive: Hornets unveil purple classic uniform

    The Charlotte Hornets have added a new uniform to their wardrobe. Today the team unveiled a purple version of the classic jerseys the team has been sporting in the past two seasons.

    In 2017-18, the Hornets wore a slightly updated version of the teal uniform they wore in the early 90s. Last season, they wore white when they elected to wear throwbacks. This year, it's purple. If you've been hoping to collect the entire trifecta, now's your chance.

    No word yet on how many times the team will wear these or what the dates will be, but based on recent seasons, it's safe to assume the Hornets will rock these a dozen or so times throughout the course of next season.

    Fansided: Charlotte Hornets Alumni: Dwight Howard to workout for Los Angles Lakers

    Through the team's history, the Charlotte Hornets have had a lot of interesting centers play for their organization. One of those centers is Dwight Howard, who only played for one season in Charlotte.

    Howard arrived in Charlotte following a trade with the Atlanta Hawks during the 2017 offseason. In this trade, the Hornets would send Marco Belinelli and Miles Plumlee to the Hawks in exchange for Howard.

    While in Charlotte, Howard would average 16.6 points and 12.5 rebounds per game. Howard would then be traded during the 2018 season, and then he would eventually find himself playing for the Washington Wizards.

    Fansided: Charlotte Hornets: Interviewing Hornets reporter Ashley ShahAhmadi

    In a season where the Charlotte Hornets were unable to find much success, one person found the opportunity of a lifetime. Ashley ShahAhmadi, a reporter for Fox Sports South, was promoted to be the new full-time sideline reporter covering the Hornets.

    This opportunity came after previous Fox Sports South's sideline reporter, Stephanie Ready, accepted a new job with Turner Sports. When Ashley heard that she was promoted, it was undoubtedly a dream come true.

    ShahAhmadi originally started as a pre- and post-game host in 2018 for Fox Sports South, covering the Charlotte Hornets' home games.

    Fansided: Charlotte Hornets 2019-20 Expectations: Will Rozier Prove His Doubters Wrong?

    Terry Rozier has been in a tough spot his entire NBA career. After being drafted by the Boston Celtics with the 16th overall pick in the 2015 draft, Rozier has had an up and down career.

    Terry Rozier has been in the same position many other young players have dealt with; Playing behind all-star guards with the belief it should be you instead.

    Terry finds himself in a new environment, now with the Charlotte Hornets as the assumed starting point guard with a lot to prove. The Hornets gifted Rozier with a 3-year contract worth roughly 58 million dollars, on a team with an already massive payroll.

    Fansided: Charlotte Hornets 2019-20 Expectations: When will Washington crack the rotation?

    After not playing in Summer League due to a foot injury, mans fans are eager to see Charlotte Hornets 12th overall pick PJ Washington in action. The former Kentucky forward is expected to spend some time in the G-League early in his career, but he should get a shot at minutes with the rebuilding Hornets.

    In case you missed it, my Swarm and Sting Co-Expert, Giovanni Spillman, wrote about why Washington should play more with the Hornets, rather than with the Greensboro Swarm of the G-League.

    Washington played two seasons with the Wildcats in college and appeared ready to make the jump to the NBA.

    Fansided: Do the Charlotte Hornets have a big to offer the Los Angeles Lakers?

    After news broke last week about DeMarcus Cousins' devastating ACL injury, rumors have been circulating everywhere as to who could be a replacement for the former All-Star. We've heard names like Dwight Howard, Joakim Noah and more, but the Charlotte Hornets may have someone on their roster that they could be interested in.

    Cody Zeller is someone that the Hornets will likely want to hold on, considering he's a key contributor to the team. Bismack Biyombo's contract may be tough to unload, especially to a team like Los Angeles.

    Fansided: Charlotte Hornets Position Battles: Nicolas Batum vs Malik Monk

    With the Charlotte Hornets seemingly entering rebuild mode starting with the 2019-20 season, many fans want the organization to go all-in on the youth and give major playing time to guys like Miles Bridges, Dwayne Bacon and Malik Monk.

    While Bridges and Bacon are near locks to start for the Charlotte Hornets this upcoming season, Monk is far from a guarantee. He's going to have to make a big impression during training camp if he hopes to beat out Charlotte's highest paid player in Nicolas Batum for the starting spot.

    Fansided: Charlotte Hornets Alumni: Spurs to retire Tony Parker's number next season

    Despite having a disappointing season last year, the Charlotte Hornets were able to have a legendary player on their roster. Even though Tony Parker spent one season with the Hornets, he still gave Charlotte a lot of help on many nights.

    Parker made his NBA debut on October 30, 2001, against the Los Angeles Clippers. This would be a game where Parker would come off the game and score nine points in the San Antonio Spurs' first game of the season.

    Parker played for 18 NBA seasons, spending one of them with the Charlotte Hornets last season.

    Fansided: 2019-20 Eastern Conference Standings Predictions: Where do the Charlotte Hornets sit?

    Remember all the madness of NBA Free Agency back in early July? It feels so long ago. Fans are now getting antsy for the 2019-20 season to start. The league is wide open for the first time in years. For Charlotte Hornets fans, though, it will be a different season compared to previous years.

    After sign-and-trading Kemba Walker to the Boston Celtics in exchange for Terry Rozier, Charlotte has put together a team that will more than likely be fighting for a top spot in the Draft Lottery rather than a top spot in the NBA Playoffs.

    Fansided: Charlotte Hornets 2019-2020: Who's In and Who's Out

    The Charlotte Hornets were somewhat of a young team going into the 2019 off-season, but with three new rookies, the addition of Thomas Welsh, and a few two-way contracts, Charlotte now hosts a vast, loosely organized pool of inexperienced NBA players.

    Some players like Welsh, Cody Martin, and Jalen McDaniels can expect to see a considerable amount of their time in the G-League this year, but will they ever find themselves a part of Charlotte's long term plans?

    Aside from the young members of the team, Charlotte also has a few veteran and semi-veteran players that will need their roles reassessed.

    At the Hive: The Hornets need Miles Bridges to step up as a playmaker

    Miles Bridges had a solid yet unspectacular rookie year for the Charlotte Hornets. The box score numbers won't wow you with their volume, but they do show an impressive amount of versatility for a rookie. Bridges is going to have to build on that versatility in his second season.

    The Hornets didn't just lose their best player when Kemba Walker left for the Boston Celtics in free agency. They lost their best playmaker. Walker led the team with 5.9 assists per game and tied for second in the league in secondary assists per game.
