HORNETS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Hornets Bismack Biyombo Should Be A Free Agent Target

The Hornets Bismack Biyombo should be a target in free agency for any team in need of defensive help off the bench. He is only just starting to figure the NBA game out. “The game has kind of slowed down for me,” Biyombo told Pro Bball Report. “I understand the game better. I know how I can help the team on defense. Help different guys on the floor to cover weaknesses and help...

Gerald Henderson reflects on Hornets' season: 'Underachieved a little bit'

It's hard to believe that six seasons have already gone by for Gerald Henderson in Charlotte. He was born into the NBA as a Bobcat, and he helped the new-old Hornets through their first season back in the league. Not everything went according to plan, naturally, but Henderson was able to take stock of the good and the bad in his season-ending media session, courtesy of the Hornets...

A review of Mo Williams' season in Charlotte

It is sometimes difficult to grade or judge a player after a single season, as a multitude of factors go into a player's performance over the course of a season. It is even more difficult to grade a player after less than half of a season with a given team, but that is exactly what I tried to do for QueenCityHoops.com in regards to Mo Williams.Check out the entire report cards over...

The Hornets went 33-49, finishing 4th in the Southeast division. With the acquisition of Lance Stephenson, Charlotte was expected to contend in the East.

2014-2015 Season Obituary: The Charlotte Hornets Weren’t Born Ready To Return To The Playoffs

This season, something important was restored in Charlotte. Decades ago, the NBA came to a college basketball-loving part of the United States, accompanied by a genuine buzz. The Hornets showed that there was more than enough basketball for a fan’s entertainment dollar in the Carolinas. That identity — the one carried by the likes of Alonzo Mourning and Larry Johnson in the franchise’s...

What the Charlotte Hornets must do to get the “Buzz” back!

I’ve lived in Charlotte my entire life and I’ve never remembered a time, other than perhaps when the Panthers made it to Super Bowl XXXVIII, when the Charlotte sports atmosphere had such a buzz and excitement about it like it did when the city got its beloved basketball team back. The old school Charlotte Hornets never really left, and the city never really stopped loving the...

Charlotte Hornets: playoffs mean big bonuses for players

Let’s just say, the eastern conference is weaker than Dzhokar Tsarnaev’s defense trail in Boston this week.  At 33-45, it’s baffling that the Charlotte Hornets have a glimmer of playoff opportunity.  After losing to the Toronto Raptors by 18 points, fans are ready to go ahead and cash out…it’s closing time. Charlotte Hornets come up short when it counts. This was quite...

Could Bismack Biyombo Become what Ben Wallace Was?

Anyone who has followed Trade Street Post for the past 4+ years will know that I have a special place in my heart for Bismack Biyombo.  I have argued his curious case since Charlotte drafted him 7th in the 2011 NBA draft.  He had not started playing organized basketball until age 16, and in that short time, his raw athletic ability was viewed as quite impressive, and he started...

The other night when I was watching the Hornets playing the Magic, I started thinking about Kemba Walker and what he brings every night.  Then I started thinking about Mo Williams and what he has brought these last 5 games.  It really inspired me to start doing some research on both of these players.  It posed the question that this article is titled: Is Mo Williams what Kemba...

Hornets acquire Mo Williams from the Timberwolves

The Charlotte Hornets made a rather solid move on Tuesday in hopes of propelling them to the playoffs this season. Picking talent from a last-place Minnesota Timberwolves squad, the Hornets acquired guards Mo Williams and Troy Daniels from Minnesota in exchange for Gary Neal and a second-round pick (in 2019). Williams—now in his 12th season—was performing at a pretty high level...
