Initial Post-Draft Depth Chart for Charlotte Hornets

The draft everyone was waiting for has come and gone, and the Charlotte Hornets came away with a very impressive haul that almost all would agree was one of the better drafts across the league.

The Hornets nabbed power forward Noah Vonleh with the No. 9 pick, an unexpected slide for the incredibly talented freshman out of Indiana. It was surprising to see him fall out of the top five and also not become the first power forward selected.

Later in the first round, Charlotte traded back a couple of spots to select P.J. Hairston from the Development League, picking up a the 55th pick and a future second-rounder in the process. The Hornets moved from No. 24 to 26 to allow the Miami Heat to snag their man in Shabazz Napier, while the Hornets also grabbed Xavier guard Semaj Christon, who was then traded to the Oklahoma City Thunder for unknown compensation. I know, it is confusing.

Hairston gives the team a valuable outside shooter that the franchise desperately needed. Later on, the team took Stanford big man Dwight Powell to further add to their frontcourt depth.

All three should fit in swimmingly, which we will now examine in the first post-draft depth chart for your new Charlotte Hornets, who, by the way, just killed it with the recent release of their new court design for the upcoming season. Charlotte is in for a whole lot of honey.

When making the depth chart, we will be taking into account all the guys currently under contract as well as the projected impact they should have this upcoming year. One thing that is for sure is this roster is decidedly better than it was 24 hours ago.
