    Fun Facts for the season

    -The Hornets are due for some winning seasons as they have only made the playoffs three times since being re-established in Charlotte as an expansion team 16 years ago and went 3-12 in those series; in franchise history (1988-2002, 2004-2020) the team has never made it to the Conference Finals

    -Although Miles Bridges had an average ADP of seventh round in most fantasy drafts, he disappointed by producing 13th/14th round value so far this season

    -One of the biggest waiver wire pickups of the year came from the Hornets in Devonte’ Graham as he broke out in 2019-20 with 5th/7th round per-game value

    -The Hornets decided to embrace the youth movement this year by waiving two of their most tenured players in Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (26 years old and had been with the team since 2012) and Marvin Williams (33 years old and had been with the team since 2014) and currently have the fourth youngest average age (24.6) of any NBA roster with only one player over the age of 27: Nicolas Batum

    -Although Caleb Martin wasn’t drafted like his brother Cody, he appears to have the better fantasy stat-set because of his ability as a 3-point shooter, and the evidence supports this theory as Caleb produced 11th/11th round per-game value after the All-Star break while Cody produced 18th/20th round per-game value in that same span despite getting more playing time (28.4 minutes per game for Cody vs. 21.7 minutes per game for Caleb)

    -P.J. Washington had a much different story than most rookies as he performed much better from a fantasy perspective early on in the year (6th/5th round per-game value in his first 13 opportunities) and his value fell off as the season rolled along (15th/16th round per-game value over his last 45 appearances)

    -The Hornets have 52.34 percent of their 2020-21 cap dedicated to three players and Terry Rozier (16.1%) was the only one of the three to provide standard league value in 2019-20: Nicolas Batum (23.1% of cap) and Cody Zeller (13.13% of cap) being the others
