The New Orleans Hornets will enter the draft with needs in almost every area. The Hornets need shooters, a rebounder, a three-point shooter and more. With hardly any of their players looking like guys who could be starters on a playoff team, the Hornets need to be open to drafting almost any type of player.
Fortunately for them, they have two first-round picks. Both picks may come up in the first 10 spots, depending on what happens in the draft lottery. Currently, the odds for their first pick have them slotted fourth, and the odds for their second pick (acquired from the Minnesota Timberwolves) have them slotted 10th.
With two picks in the first half of the first round, the Hornets will be able to set their sights on plenty of players. Following is a list of the five players they should consider.
