Jalen McDaniels brother Jaden is currently slated to go around the turn between the first and second round, and he could be the best option available for the Hornets at 32. Measurements Height: 6’10” Wingspan: 6’11.5” Weight: 200 pounds Strengths: Potential skill set at size, shooting ability Most of Jaden McDaniels’ appeal is in his potential rather than his current production. He has shown rare skills for a player of his size, though he hasn’t been able to make an impact consistently.

Given the Hornets’ situation, roster, timeline, and past decisions, I think there is a clear strategy for this draft selection- Take the player with the most star potential. There have been multiple draft mistakes by the Hornets in the past when they have constantly gone the direction of drafting the best college stud in the pool instead of looking at upside. Prime examples would be Cody Zeller in 2013, Frank Kaminsky in 2015, and Malik Monk in 2017.
