Charlotte Hornets Rumors
This has been the opinion in the Charlotte front office for some time. Sources say the Hornets tried to trade for Lamb long before he finally became available — for pennies on the dollar when Oklahoma City no longer had any use or luxury-tax dollars for him.
One view among executives familiar with Lamb’s potential and limitations is that the lack of consistent opportunity in Oklahoma City hurt his confidence. The corollary to this view is that the opportunity in Charlotte, the familiarity of being Walker’s wingman and the ability to develop on a team not burdened by championship expectations will help him get it back.
Charlotte Hornets owner Michael Jordan agrees with the popularity of basketball in China. “It’s a great example of how the NBA has expanded globally. With games like this, we’ll continue to expand from a basketball sense.”
