The longtime Beat Reporter for the Charlotte Observer Rick Bonnell joined Kyle Bailey today on the Clubhouse to expand upon his report last week on the Hornets having an interest in James Wiseman, and who could be an under-the-radar free agent that he could see the Hornets going after.

Rick started the interview by expanding upon his report last week that sources told him that the Hornets have real interest in James Wiseman as he told Kyle:

"That information did not come from the Hornets, and the people who told me that the Hornets have interest in James Wiseman were shocked that it was not already common knowledge. Everyone in the league knows that so that should tell you something."

If the Hornets can not or do not take James Wiseman Rick said that the Hornets should possibly pursue guys like Anthony Edwards, Onyeka Okongwu, and possibly Deni Avdija are all names that the Hornets could look at as well.

When it came to free agency for the Hornets Kyle wanted Rick to tell him of some guys that he thinks the team could go after as Rick immediately went to Joe Harris of the Nets as Rick points out how James loves shooting and Joe Harris would bring just that at a high level.
