Charlotte has emerged as a potential suitor for Russell Westbrook. (Shams Charania on Twitter)
The Hornets finished last season 23-42 and were largely irrelevant in the first season of the post-Kemba Walker era. The team's backcourt was its clear strength, with newcomer Terry Rozier and second-year riser Devonte' Graham leading the offense. Charlotte is certainly lacking for star power, and Westbrook's relationship with Michael Jordan is well known. Westbrook, who has been rumored to want out of Houston, averaged 27.2 points, 7.9 rebounds, and 7.0 assists in his first season with the Rockets.
