|Team Outlook and Scouting Report|
While Kemba Walker did not help the Celtics win that many more games his departure did cost Charlotte 4 wins and replacing him with Terry Rozier did not help at all. After all the other moves around the league the Hornets are proejcted for a 10 win drop in '19-20 We do not project them to be a playoff team in '19-20.
