The Charlotte Hornets have been rebuilding for seemingly forever, and it is unknown exactly what it would take for them to become a legitimate playoff team anytime soon.

In Miles Bridges, Brandon Miller and LaMelo Ball, the Hornets have some intriguing young talent, but they don’t have enough pieces, and it is hard to ascertain exactly where they will get those missing pieces from.

Seth Curry, one of their few true veterans, has been waived, but per Adrian Wojnarowski, he could end up sticking around in Charlotte on a new deal.

Curry, who is the younger brother of the Golden State Warriors’ Stephen Curry, is a dead-eye 3-point shooter, just like his more famous sibling.

But while he has a career mark of 43.1 percent from 3-point range, he was at a mediocre 35.2 percent from that distance this season.

He was traded to Charlotte at midseason in the deal that sent P.J. Washington to the Dallas Mavericks, and he played just eight games with Charlotte because of a sprained ankle.

In those eight games, he made just 32.1 percent of his attempts from beyond the arc.

If Seth Curry finds a way to regain his outside shooting stroke, he could be a nice pickup for another team, especially a contending team, if he doesn’t stay in Charlotte.

The Hornets are hoping their young players stay healthy and continue to develop, and they will have a new head coach in Charles Lee, who served as a top assistant for the Boston Celtics, who just won the NBA championship.
