Apologies for bumming outside Buzz City, but the thing to say about the Hornets’ future might be that they have not traded any future first-round picks .
They are apparently sent by all offseason paths on a summer vacation to nowhere. Break the lender and you’re probably paying the luxury tax for a lottery group. Let him walk, and you are losing the most popular player in franchise history. Splurge on Jeremy Lamb him, and you could be footing one of basketball’s most important payrolls. Reduce both Lamb and Walker, and you aren’t returning anyone who averaged 11 points each game.
