A couple more notes before tomorrow’s draft.
- According to ESPN’s Brian Windhorst (h/t to Real GM), the Charlotte Hornets are hoping to trade Gordon Hayward along with one of their picks (13th & 15th selections) to clear up salary space to potentially re-sign Miles Bridges. Although from my view, this looks like a hard deal to get done for two main reasons. One being health (Hayward has only appeared in 93 games in two years with Charlotte), and the other being money (owed $30.1 million next season and $31.5 million in 2023-24).
- Keep an eye on projected 1st round picks Jalen Williams & TyTy Washington tomorrow. NBA Big Board’s Rafael Barlowe was recently told by a scout that he doesn’t see Williams falling past the Atlanta Hawks at #16. The same scout also said that Washington could be the last player remaining in the green room.
