Latest news involving the Charlotte Hornets is that they are willing to begin negotiating trade talks involving Kemba Walker. If the Hornets were to trade Kemba Walker, it would result in a complete reset for the entire organization.  If Charlotte decides to go through with this course of action, it is essential that they obtain core pieces that will properly prepare them for the future.

When trade talks begin regarding a superstar like Kemba Walker, it is the start of a complete roster overhaul and the beginning stages of a rebuild. The Charlotte Hornets front office must take every appropriate step to guarantee that the right move is made regarding this situation. Fans and viewers of this team have seen that with the current state of the roster, they show no signs of becoming an elite team. Kemba Walker has given his all to the Charlotte Hornets organization and its fans on a daily-basis. It will be hard to see a player like him go, but a move like this could ultimately equip Charlotte with the proper pieces to become a contender in the future.

Firstly, Charlotte cannot consider giving up such a valuable asset without quite a substantial amount of talent or draft picks back in return. Draft picks should be a prime target in trade talks regarding a superstar of his caliber, as well as young talent. For example, young players with the caliber of Jayson TatumDonovan Mitchell, and Kyle Kuzma should be targets when trading away a best player. Since Charlotte will be rebuilding, they will have the opportunity to send trade packages involving multiple players to acquire young talent or clear cap space for the free agency market.

Trading Kemba Walker opens many doors of opportunity for the Charlotte Hornets. They must realize though, that if they are to go through with this drastic change, they must weigh the options of each and every trade package. This possible trade could either make or break the future of the franchise. I thoroughly believe that with the consistency and work ethic of Kemba Walker shown throughout his career, it is possible to find the perfect trade to acquire both young talent and draft picks. This is much more than just a trade or a few adjustments. In fact, this is a phase of the franchise that the Charlotte Hornets must face head on for the betterment and potential of their organization.
