The Hornets should have significant salary cap space this offseason for the first time in several years and they could leverage other teams’ needs to trim payroll by acquiring a quality veteran without giving up much in a trade or absorbing a contract in return for a draft pick.
“Even though we’ll have cap room, I don’t feel free-agency is the answer for us at this time,” Hornets GM Mitch Kupchak said. “So that talent is going to have to come from the draft or a trade.” Big-time free agents aren’t looking at Charlotte as a destination even with all that cap room, while in the current economic climate, a few teams will be looking to shed salary. The window of opportunity might be open for Charlotte this offseason in their quest to surround Devonte’ Graham and Terry Rozier with even more talent.
