HORNETS ANNOUNCE GM CHANGE
The Charlotte Hornets have not won more then 36 games since they won 48 in the 2015-2016 season. And they have not reached the playoffs since that season, and have only finished with a winning percentage better then .450 one season since then.
The Charlotte Hornets announced today they have parted ways with Mitch Kupchak, who to be fair has only been in that position since April 8th 2018. In his place they have agreed to terms with 40 year old Indiana native Sam Fisher. Fisher played college ball at Indiana State before playing 2 years over in Europe.
“I’m excited for the opportunity” said Fisher at the press conference today, “I have lofty expectations for myself. I want and expect to win to bring Charlotte their first championship.” Fisher wasn’t brave enough to guarantee or promise how soon that will happen. When asked what his first order of business was, he said “getting ready for the draft coming up.”
The pretty much unknown Fisher
The Charlotte Hornets will have the 3rd pick in the upcoming draft. The WSSN mock draft has them taking 19 year old SG Anthony Edwards from Georgia.
The mock draft ended up being right, as the Charlotte Hornets selected SG Anthony Edwards with the 3rd pick in the 1st round. Edwards will fill a hole the Hornets have at SG, as the Hornets only had 22 year old Malik Monk on the roster. With the 2nd round pick the Hornets selected PF Tyler Bey from Georgia and with the final pick the Hornets selected PF Yoeli Childs from BYU.
