With one of the worst defenses among teams who qualified for any sort of postseason play, the Hornets run it back in 2022-2023 without much changing. They are without Miles Bridges to start the season as he remains an unrestricted free agent following a domestic violence dispute with his girlfriend over the offseason. Their backcourt is led by LaMelo Ball and Terry Rozier with Dennis Smith Jr. and Cody Martin backing them up, respectively. Their frontcourt, meanwhile, is led by the trio of Gordon Hayward, Mason Plumlee, and PJ Washington. Despite their defensive woes last season, this team was an absolute offensive juggernaut — ranking 4th in the NBA in points last season.
