The Charlotte Hornets have a bright future currently. They have rookie sensation LaMelo Ball, whose eye for spectacular passes and overall great season helped him win the Rookie of the Year award. However, despite the team having a lot of potential, they were unable to make a run to the playoffs, losing to the Indiana Pacers in the play-in tournament.

One of the areas of need for the Charlotte Hornets is the center position. It is clear that the Hornets could use a great interior finisher and rim protector to improve on both ends of the court. Kevin O'Connor's mock draft revealed that league sources connect the Hornets with a variety of names around the league the center position, one of which is Myles Turner. O'Connor adds that there is also the possibility that they end up drafting a center.
