While most of the attention on this year’s rookie class in the NBA is focused on Victor Wembanyama and, to a lesser extent, Scoot Henderson, the Charlotte Hornets have a good one in Brandon Miller themselves.

The 6-foot-9 forward made a solid summer league debut in Monday’s California Classic with 18 points, though he also had five turnovers.

But his second game on Wednesday was tough, as he had more fouls (eight) than points (six) in 28 minutes.

Miller managed to deliver seven assists, but he had four turnovers.

Last season, as a member of the University of Alabama Crimson Tide, he had 18.8 points and 8.2 rebounds per game while shooting 38.4 percent from 3-point range.

He is also believed to have a lot of defensive potential as well, as he had 0.9 steals and 0.9 blocks per game in his only season at Alabama.

If Miller does eventually succeed and achieve All-Star production and value in the NBA, it would give the Hornets a nice lineup to build with him and LaMelo Ball.

Ball posted 23.3 points, 6.4 rebounds and 8.4 assists per game during the 2022-23 campaign, and he’s reportedly just agreed to a five-year contract extension that could be worth up to $260 million. dollars.

The Hornets have been a laughing stock for most of their existence, as they’ve only made the playoffs three times since forming in 2004, and haven’t been since the 2015-16 season.

Last season, they won just 27 games and had the second-worst record in the Eastern Conference.
