Charlotte Hornets to Pick Ninth and 39th in 2015 NBA Draft

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 81.3percent chance of getting the No. 9 pick.

Over the past four NBA Drafts, Charlotte used first-round lottery selections on guards Kemba Walker (ninth overall, 2011) and forwards Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (second overall, 2012), Cody Zeller (fourth overall, 2013) and Noah Vonleh (ninth overall, 2014) while also trading for the draft rights to forward Bismack Biyombo (seventh overall, 2011).

“We are excited about the prospect of adding another quality player to our nucleus,” said Hornets General Manager Rich Cho. “This is a deep draft with significant talent available. We are very optimistic that we will add a player who will help our team continue to get better and fill a key role moving forward.”
