The Hornets have questions marks all over their roster and there was a significant opportunity cost of not accepting Boston's offer on draft night along with dealing away Noah Vonleh.
Perry Jones III and Jeremy Lamb were supposed to be part of a second wave of young players who would augment the Thunder core as they started making real money. That's how fast the worm can turn in the NBA - from a key part of the future to yesterday's news in a snap of the finger.
If the three-point shot is both the present and future of the NBA, the last season's performance beyond the arc by the Hornets must have meant they were stuck in the past. The goal this offseason was fairly straightforward: add as much shooting as possible.
