NBA: Charlotte Hornets at Detroit Pistons Raj Mehta-USA TODAY Sports

It’s that time again. The Charlotte Hornets are on the clock in the At the Hive community’s mock NBA Draft. We need you to vote on the Hornets selection.

The Hornets selected center Bol Bol with the twelfth overall pick. Keep that in mind when making your vote.

But first, shout out and big thank you to the At the Hive community. You guys absolutely slayed this. Below are picks 13 through 35. Picks 1 through 12 can be found here.

13. Miami Heat - Tyler Herro

I noticed shooting guard was the best value at this spot. This left me juggling between Porter and Herro. I went with Tyler mainly because of his shooting mechanics, effort on d, and strong free throw ability. I also believe Herro has higher ceiling than most people think. -AdamJ907

14. Boston Celtics - Brandon Clarke

Jay Bilas – “Brandon Clarke is a freak athlete, unbelievable motor and one of the most underrated players in the draft.”Jay Williams – “Agree, best player on the board. Celtics have found a great replacement for Marcus Morris if they let him walk”Seth Greenberg – “Excellent choice, plays the game of basketball, has the heart of a Zag, whoop-di-whoop” -gfloyd86

15. Detroit Pistons - Kevin Porter Jr.

Detroit needs a more dependable scorer who can create his own shot outside of Blake Griffin. Reggie Jackson isn’t the answer and may have more value as an expiring contract. They need a second scorer badly.

Porter can create his own shot and could be a devastating scorer next to Griffin. Additionally, in Drummond and Blake, the Pistons have two fantastic passers for big men. This could really open things up for the Pistons on offense.

And simply, the dude has talent. They couldn’t pass it up. -PoAshton

16. Orlando Magic - Rui Hachimura

Cliff and the Magic like the NBA ready body, 6`8 234 lbs. and a 7`1 wingspan. Rui can play and defend multiple positions and brings a lot of length to their perimeter D. -Doug68

17. Atlanta Hawks - Mfiondu Kabengele

Adding Cam Reddish and Jaxson Hayes earlier in the draft, the Atlanta Hawks add depth just in case Jaxson Hayes need more time to develop. -Caro2daheart

18. Indiana Pacers - P.J. Washington

Probably best available .. , and hes a 6-8 F who would fit nicely alongside myles turner(combo frontcourt). And hes “buzz guy” -GODshun.ace

19. San Antonio Spurs - Goga Bitadze

The Spurs have always had a bit of a thing for international players. They have more than enough guards, and need some help in the front court. They are weaker at the 4, but the well-rounded, fundamentally strong game of Goga Bitadze fits the Spurs MO too well, and with Aldridge turning 34 soon, this could be the player they build their future frontcourt around without forcing too much on him too early. It’s a great fit for both team and player. -Hythloday

20. Boston Celtics - Nassir Little

This pick is less about team need and more about value. Lottery is a reach, but at pick 20, Nassir explosiveness is too much to pass up. Has the potential to be strong 3&D player. If he turns into Harrison Barnes or Iggy that’s a huge win; worth the gamble at 20. -gfloyd86

21. Oklahoma City Thunder - Luka Samanic

Feeling somewhat relieved that Nassir Little has just gone off the board, OKC can move on to to a player who doesn’t have many question marks about his shot-making abilities.

There’s a good chance he’s ready for minutes early in the year and fits well in frountcourt lineup combos that include any mix of him, PG, Noel, Grant, or Adams. -BzCtyKnights

22. Boston Celtics - Romeo Langford

Dude is an isolation scoring machine. Potential steal at #22 with a nagging thumb injury to blame for most of his freshman shooting woes. Hopefully he can improve his ball handling & play-making ability at the next level – hopefully very quickly if Kyrie is not around for Brad Stevens next year. -gfloyd86

23. Utah Jazz - Nicolas Claxton

Claxton is the best big available and Utah needs front court depth more than anything else, even though Rubio is likely not re-signing. Ready to play from day one, Claxton is a good rebounder and elite shot blocker with nice post moves. He can’t score outside of the paint or shoot free throws, but he would provide a suitable stand-in while Gobert is on the bench. -adamcawa

24. Philadelphia 76ers - Keldon Johnson

Keldon still being on the board makes this a bit of a no-brainer, as he has perfect modern NBA size to go along with a very solid all-around game with very good baseline outside shooting. His problem was consistency, most notably IMO consistency in his footwork which adversely affected his jumper..and that’s easily coachable. Kid has good defensive effort and potential, solid handle for his position, he flashed some playmaking, good motor and rebounds his position well. Ironically, Keldon reminds me A LOT of Jimmy B when he came out, and I think his ceiling is that high. The drop off from him to other wings was just so much greater than from Fernando to other bigs, I had to pull the trigger. The value at 24, getting a guy I view as easily a top 15 talent, was just too great. -NCsports22

25. Portland Trail Blazers - Dylan Windler

With Keldon Johnson off the board, the Blazers select Dylan Windler, from tiny Belmont. Windler will join the team ready to contribute from day one, providing much needed wing scoring off the bench, as well as some underrated defense and rebounding. -13Wetz

26. Cleveland Cavaliers - Cameron Johnson

-Nimsack

27. Brooklyn Nets - KZ Okpala

Having lost out on a more NBA ready prospect in Cameron Johnson, the Nets go with BPA. Brooklyn appears to be going for it in there attempt to sign Kyrie. KZ has excellent size at SF and should eventually be able to play small ball 4. He shot pretty well from 3 and can get to the basket and finish. He’ll need to improve his free throw shooting, defensive effort, and strength. -hotrats

28. Golden State Warriors - Bruno Fernando

GSW has 2 areas of weakness. The first is general backcourt depth. This team is extremely top heavy and the offense becomes anemic when either Quin Cook, Alfonso McKinnie or others step on the court. They consider Cam Johnson to be the last of the tier 3 wing players to fill that role.The second area of need is a rebounding/defensive minded center . The Warriors were high on both Nic Claxton and Goga Bitadze but consider Bruno to be in the same tier. He is an athletic rim runner that can excel in a role where his offensive limitations are hidden by the playmaking of Draymond Green and Stephen Curry. They hope to mold him in the image of Clippers DeAndre Jordan, or present day Clint Capela. -Drone Zone

29. San Antonio Spurs - Grant Williams

As mentioned earlier, the Spurs need frontcourt depth. With Center already taken care of, they address the 4/3 here with a quintessential Spurs player. Williams projects to be a more athletic, higher ceiling Boris Diaw. A natural passer and steadily improving shooter, he is exactly the role player the Spurs are known for. -Hythloday

30. Milwaukee Bucks - Ty Jerome

The Bucks need as much shooting around Giannis as possible. They need guys that can effectively spot up, and if they can play-make, even better. Because of the cost to retain their free agents (Middleton, Mirotic, Lopez, Brogdon [RFA]), George Hill will be waived, as his salary is only guaranteed at $1M. That leaves the team light at PG, so filling the backup spot with a rookie who should be playable from day 1 is a huge win. Jerome should fit seamlessly into the rotation as a role-player who can knock down open shots, make quick, decisive reads, and stay on the court as a decent team defender. At 6’5, he’ll fit next to Bledsoe or Brogdon, and his 40% shot from 3 will be a welcome addition spotting up off Giannis drives.

This kid also has Sam Cassell-sized cojones and consistently elevated his game in big moments. For a team with championship aspirations, that’s a significant bonus. While he’s never going to be a high-level NBA athlete or dynamic scorer, his toughness, smarts, and shooting will keep him in an NBA rotation for years to come. This is a slam dunk for Milwaukee. -dhoyle81

31. Brooklyn Nets - Matisse Thybulle

The Nets hope they’ve found themselves a 3 and D SG/SF. Also, coming out of Washington, Thybulle has great experience defending in zone, which the Nets are known to employ. -hotrats

32. Phoenix Suns - Carsen Edwards

(and fresh off witnessing Fred VanFleet drain critical three pointers) undersized Purdue point guard with oversized scoring mentality, Carsen Edwards. Suns walk away with Garland and Edwards, hoping to recapture the embarrassment of the riches they had when Dragic, Bledsoe and Brandon Knight all shared the backcourt before the PG drought. -Buzz Light Year

33. Philadelphia 76ers - Chuma Okeke

-NCsports22

34. Philadelphia 76ers - Daniel Gafford

A huge part of me wanted Horton-Tucker or a PG with one of these 2 picks, but the value of Okeke+Gafford is just too great

Landing Johnson+Okeke+Gafford gives Philly immediate help at C2 and outside shooting with great wing potential in Johnson…they can let Okeke rehab and they would be getting a top 15 value IMO in him as a great stretch 4 & small-ball 5 prospect…they can utilize exceptions or being back TJ if they can to fill the PG2 void (or maybe a good one goes undrafted here, which is my hope) -NCsports22

35. Atlanta Hawks - Terance Mann

Big 3 & D guy off the bench who had remarkable senior year statistically. -Caro2daheart

36. Charlotte Hornets:
