John Hollinger: I Think the Hornets have to consider a Westbrook Trade


John Hollinger from the Athletic joined the show and gave his thoughts on the Russell Westbrook trade rumors and also gave his thoughts on LaMelo Ball.

He was asked if a Westbrook trade to Charlotte would make since for the Hornets.

“If they have the chance to trade Cody Zeller and Nic Butum for Russell Westbrook then I think they should look at the trade but I wouldn’t go crazy over it…”

He was also asked if he still thinks LaMelo Ball will go 1st in the draft.

“I am less confident that LaMelo will go first because a lot of chatter about Anthony Edwards being the pick which means LaMelo might be the guy that could be the pick for Charlotte… I would take LaMelo because I think he is the most talented player in the draft and this would be a good chance for the Hornets to get high end talent…”
