New Orleans Hornets: Ranking Every Player on Hornets Roster

The New Orleans Hornets have drastically improved since finishing last season with the fourth-worst record in the NBA.

They drafted a couple of young building blocks in shot-blocking big man Anthony Davis and sharpshooter Austin Rivers. They traded for last year's Most Improved Player, Ryan Anderson, in a deal with Orlando. They also removed themselves of their two worst contracts by shipping Trevor Ariza and Emeka Okafor to Washington for Rashard Lewis, who was waived last week.  

In the coming days, they are expected to match Phoenix's four-year, $58 million deal for star shooting guard Eric Gordon.

On paper, the Hornets have the look of a team that could make some noise next season and beyond. They have young franchise cornerstones, a good coaching staff and significant cap space. With the right breaks, they could be a playoff team next season.

I decided to rank each of the 13 players on New Orleans' current roster from worst to best. This is assuming, of course, that the Hornets are done making any more moves this offseason.
