The Charlotte Hornets hold the No. 3 overall pick in the 2020 NBA Draft, and Charlotte should have many options once the top two picks are off the board.

Depending on how the first and second picks shake out in front of Charlotte, the Hornets could make and keep their pick or trade it.

In the post-Kemba Walker era, the Hornets could use a star with the name recognition of a LaMelo Ball. But Ball may be gone by the third pick, in which case it wouldn’t be a bad idea for the Hornets to trade down.

Depending on how far Charlotte would be willing to drop down the draft board, they should still be able to recoup picks in return, while landing an impact player.

Let’s take a look at five teams who should consider trading for Charlotte’s pick at No. 3 in the 2020 NBA Draft.
