Hornets could be a great team it really depends on how good those draftees were.
I think Mason is improving quickly, Snyder will develop into a good backup SG but the key is a weak frontline and West and Brown. They are both good mid-range shooters, but Brown is forced to play center where he is not as effective defensively and West has major defensive issues. With Paul-Snyder-Mason they had a great defensive backcourt last year. With Hilton and Cedric Simmons they are hoping to fix their front line.
With peja they get someone who can score in the backcourt besides Paul.
It will be interesting to see how the Hornets pan out.
