Trade no. 1

This year’s draft has many people split. Surely, there are some general managers who think very differently about this class than others. Maybe Karnisovas and his staff think they can make more of the top prospects than others.

Maybe, a team like Charlotte would rather look ahead to next year and add some proven talent in the meantime. After all, next year’s free agency should be much more interesting and the Hornets will have a little more money to work with. If they were to add a guy like Zach LaVine, would that help attract a bigger name rather than a roster lacking a potential star?

LaVine has seen his name in trade rumors since he became a Bull, it seems. Let’s say the Bulls could deal him to Charlotte for Devonte’ Graham and the no. 3 overall pick. That would be a heck of a position to be in if you’re Karnisovas.

To have back-to-back picks in the top five would be something special, regardless of how you feel about this draft class. The potential to end up with two of Wiseman, Ball, Edwards or maybe a guy like Toppin, would immediately change the perspective of the fan base.

You still have a core of Coby White, Lauri Markkanen and Wendell Carter Jr. to go along with those two top-four picks. If I’m Karnisovas, why not throw this out there and see what happens? Not to mention, you get a three-point specialist in Graham who can facilitate well at the point guard position.

This would give White the opportunity to slide to shooting guard, where he could do what he does best in creating offense for himself or off the dribble.
