While Willy Hernangomez is officially a member of the Hornets and will be with the team on Sunday, Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer isn’t convinced he’ll play.
Bonnell speculates that Hernangomez won’t play until he at least practices with his new teammates, which is a completely fair point. While a trade out of New York is a good thing for the youngster, Cody Zeller and Frank Kaminsky are blocking his path to minutes in Charlotte. It’s not the best destination for Hernangomez but it should be a slight improvement. Deep league players should be watching box scores carefully, as Willy proved he didn’t need a ton of time to make a difference last season. His first real chance to play will be on Tuesday.
