2020 Hornets prospect scouting report: Zeke Nnaji

Jacob Snow-USA TODAY Sports Nnaji is one of a handful of centers the Hornets could target at the top of the second round. The Charlotte Hornets have no long term answer at their center spot. Bismack Biyombo and Willy Hernangomez are likely on their way out, and Cody Zeller isn’t the center of the future. The Hornets own the second pick in the second round, which is a prime spot to grab a young center, especially in this draft, where there a number of interesting center prospects projected to go in that range. One of those players is Arizona freshman Zeke Nnaji. Measurements Height:...

2020 Hornets prospect scouting report: Desmond Bane

Jay Biggerstaff-USA TODAY Sports The Hornets like to use the second round to pick experienced, versatile players. Bane fits that bill. Mitch Kupchak has run two drafts since taking over as the General Manager of the Charlotte Hornets. In those drafts, he’s used picks in the thirties to select Devonte’ Graham and Cody Martin. Both were older prospects that showed the ability to do a little bit of everything in the college game. Both picks look to be hits so far, so it wouldn’t be surprising for Kupchak a similar prospect in 2020. TCU guard Desmond Bane fits that mold....
