The Charlotte Hornets won the second overall pick at the 2023 NBA Draft Lottery held on the 17th (hereinafter Korean time).
This season, Charlotte had a difficult season after various bad news, such as Miles Bridges’ contract failure that caused domestic violence issues. After going 27-55, Charlotte finished the season in 14th place in the Eastern Conference.
That’s why Charlotte fans must have waited more eagerly for this lottery draw. The Wasp Corps, although they didn’t get the first-choice pick leading to Victor Wembanyama, still got a satisfactory result. Secured the 2nd overall pick.
The player strongly mentioned as the second pick in this draft is Scoot Henderson of the G-League Ignite. Although he does not receive as much attention as Wembanyama, Henderson is a point guard with outstanding talent, and is said to be the first pick in other drafts.
Henderson is being talked about as the next Derrick Rose, Russell Westbrook, based on his explosive athleticism. In the G League this season, he averaged 17.6 points, 5.1 rebounds and 6.6 assists.
Charlotte is in happy trouble. The point guard position already has the club’s best star, Ramelo Ball. If Henderson is nominated, it is expected that it will be difficult to avoid overlapping roles with the ball.
There are also predictions that Charlotte will nominate forward Brandon Miller from the University of Alabama instead of Henderson, whose position overlaps with the ball. ESPN’s draft expert Jonathan Giboni predicted Miller as the second pick and Henderson as the third pick immediately after the lottery draw.
Miller,카지노사이트 who boasts a wide range of defensive versatility with his decent shooting ability, is also evaluated as similar to Paul George. However, the fact that he is older (born in 2002) than Henderson (born in 2004) is a stumbling block.
What decision will Charlotte make? It will be interesting to watch their choices.
