Projecting the Hornets’ Rotation Following Summer League

What will the Charlotte Hornets starting five and rotation look like in 2022-23? Great question. There’s still a lot of time for GM Mitch Kupchak to make roster moves but for now, this is how I see things shaking out.

Starting Five – PG LaMelo Ball, SG Terry Rozier, SF Gordon Hayward, PF PJ Washington, C Mason Plumlee

We’re not going to make any assumptions about what the Hornets will do, so since Miles Bridges is not signed at the moment, we’re going to leave him off the roster. With Bridges out, PJ Washington slides into the starting four spot. The rest of the starting five remains the same. Yes, Plumlee will start over 1st round pick Mark Williams to begin the season. There might come a point in time where Williams overthrows the veteran for the starting center spot but it won’t happen early in the year.
