After a lengthy period of discussion and debate lasting five weeks, the Hornets have finally revealed their decision. This choice holds immense significance for the team and is arguably the most important draft decision in their history. Considering the strength of the 2023 draft class, which features three prospects who could easily be the number one pick in other drafts, it is unlikely that the Hornets will have the opportunity to secure a top-five spot in the lottery again anytime soon.

Brandon Miller is a 6'9" wing who possesses exceptional shooting skills, a well-rounded defensive game, and surprisingly good court vision and ball-handling abilities. Despite being a forward, he showcases the skills and fluidity of a shooting guard, which aligns well with the current NBA trend of emphasizing size and shooting.
