The Charlotte Hornets officially returned to the NBA yesterday, but the name change wasn’t enough to allow Charlotte to secure the top pick in the 2014 NBA Draft. The Hornets are scheduled to pick 9th overall in the first round of the draft on June 26th. The Charlotte Observer posted that the team is open to trade talks, while DraftExpress.com is saying the Hornets will pick Dario Saric, a 17 year old international star who wouldn’t be ready to play for a while in the league.
