Charlotte Hornets will have the 9th pick in the NBA draft

As expected, the Hornets will pick ninth.

The Charlotte Hornets will have the 9th pick in the 2015 NBA draft. Given only a 6.1 percent chance of moving up in the draft and only a 1.7 chance of earning the top overall pick, it was highly unlikely the Hornets were going to pick anywhere else in the draft. Despite all of MKG's charms, he couldn't persuade the lottery balls to fall in the Hornets' favor.

That's a shame as there was a lot of hope in the Hornets new name once again giving them the luck to move up, just like last year, but lady luck just wasn't on Charlotte's side. At least nobody did something stupid like drink honey all day...oh.
