Hornets to pick 9th overall in 2015 NBA Draft
Following tonight’s NBA Draft Lottery, the Charlotte Hornets will have the ninth and 39th selections in the 2015 NBA Draft, which will be held Thursday, June 25, at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.
The Hornets had just a 6.1 percent chance of receiving one of the top three picks in the Draft Lottery, with an 81.3 percent chance of getting the No. 9 pick.
The 2015 NBA Draft will mark the second consecutive year and the fourth time in Charlotte NBA history that the team will have the ninth selection. Last year, the Hornets received the ninth pick from the Detroit Pistons to complete a 2012 trade in which they acquired Ben Gordon and a future first-round pick from the Pistons in exchange for Corey Maggette. The team selected Noah Vonleh with the pick.
