Hornets Interested in Lauri Markkanen


Recommended Posts

As someone mentioned above, this creates a huge logjam at the four spot.

I wonder if we circle back to Myles Turner and try to flip P.J. Washington, Mason Plumlee (needed for cap reasons), and the first round pick from the Graham trade for him.

PG: LaMelo Ball

SG: Terry Rozier

SF: Gordon Hayward

PF: Lauri Markkanen

C: Myles Turner 

Ish Smith, James Bouknight, Jalen McDaniels, Miles Bridges, Kai Jones, JT Thor, Caleb Martin, Cody Martin, Vernon Carey, and Nick Richards making up the bench.

Arnoldas Kulboka, Scottie Lewis, and probably LiAngelo Ball in the G-League (or on the main roster, who knows).

If we can flip some assets to get Turner as well then I would be much more optimistic. My only worry was either PJ or LM would be playing at the 5 and would put us at a huge disadvantage defensively down low, but adding Turner would easily solve that problem and would make us a huge threat.

"Terms of the deal are not available yet. It's likely this will be a part of the sign-and-trades already happening with the Bulls and Pelicans. The Bulls will likely match-and-trade Markkanen, which will tie into the deals that have Devonte' Graham going to the Pelicans and Lonzo Ball going to the Bulls, among other pieces.

Markkanen can play both the 4 and the 5. He's a good rebounder and a good outside shooter, and last year he was greatly improved as a finisher inside the arc. He would add more depth, size, and shooting to the Hornets front court.

He's also 24 years old for those of you that care about timelines."
