Christian Wood    F  Hornets

 

 

The Hornets have declined to pick up their team option on Christian Wood for the 2017-18 season. Wood didn't make any noticeable improvements during his second NBA season, so this isn't surprising at all. With career averages of just 3.2 points and 2.2 rebounds, he might need to go through the D-League to get his next contract.

The Hornets have declined to pick up their team option on Christian Wood for the 2017-18 season. Wood didn't make any noticeable improvements during his second NBA season, so this isn't surprising at all. He'll be an unrestricted free agent this offseason, but with career averages of just 3.2 points and 2.2 rebounds, he might need to go through the D-League to get his next contract.

Ramon Sessions    G  Hornets

 

 

Hornets GM Rich Cho said the team will likely address their backup PG spot this summer. In short, don't expect the Hornets pick up Sessions' player option for $6.2 million next season. Sessions had a brutal year for the Hornets, averaging 6.2 points, 2.6 assists and 1.5 rebounds on 38.0 percent shooting. He just turned 31 years old and had knee surgery back in February, so the demand for Sessions as a free agent probably won't be too high.

Nicolas Batum    G/F  Hornets

 

 

Nicolas Batum played 10 minutes in the season finale on Tuesday vs. the Hawks, finishing scoreless with four assists, one rebound and one steal. The Hornets had nothing to play for tonight, so coach Steve Clifford limited Batum's minutes. Prior to this dud, Batum had a productive season with averages of 15.3 points, 6.4 rebounds, 5.9 assists, 1.1 steals and 1.8 3-pointers on the season, returning top-60 value in standard leagues. He's under contract for four more seasons and the Hornets don't have the cap space to bring in any significant free agents, so the 28-year-old wing will be looking at a similar role next season.

Jeremy Lamb    G/F  Hornets

 

 

Jeremy Lamb scored 21 points in Tuesday's 103-76 blowout loss to the Hawks. Kemba Walker (knee) was out and the Hornets limited the minutes of Nicolas Batum and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist among others, so Lamb logged 33 minutes on the night and finished 7-of-18 from the field with five rebounds, one assist, two steals and one triple. Lamb averaged just 18.2 minutes on the season prior to Tuesday, and while he was productive when called upon, the wing rotation was too crowded for him to make a significant impact. With Batum, MKG and Marco Belinelli all under contract next season, Lamb has his work cut out for him if he wants to earn a larger role next season.

Nicolas Batum    G/F  Hornets

 

 

Hornets head coach Steve Clifford said that Nicolas Batum and Marvin Williams will play "fewer" minutes against the Hawks on Tuesday. Clifford wants to get an extended look at some of the younger guys on the roster, so Jeremy Lamb could see a decent amount of minutes off the bench, and Treveon Graham should be in the rotation again. Frank Kaminksky could see his minutes in the 30s tonight, and he's probably the most attractive target out of anyone in this group. Batum and Williams are a bit risky in DFS with the minutes limit.
