Analysis: Daniels had been a restricted free agent, which would have allowed the Hornets to match any offer the guard received, but the team bypassed that opportunity and instead negotiated a sign-and-trade deal that helped expedite Daniels' arrival to Memphis. In 43 appearances with the Hornets a season ago, Daniels averaged 5.6 points and 1.3 rebounds across 11.1 minutes per game. The 6-foot-4 guard has shown plenty of proficiency from distance in his career and hit 48.4 percent of his three-point tries in 2015-16, but he's not expected to see a dramatic increase in court time with move to the Grizzlies. He'll likely slot in behind Tony Allen, Chandler Parsons and Vince Carter for playing time on the wing.
Analysis: It's been a busy offseason for the Knicks, who've already traded for Derrick Rose and signed Joakim Noah. Lee is yet another addition for the Knicks, who have quickly revamped their roster in attempts to improve from their lackluster play the past few years. Lee figures to start in place of Arron Afflalo, who left the team to sign with the Kings. Last season, Lee averaged 9.6 points, 2.6 rebounds, and 1.7 assists while playing 29.5 minutes per contest.
Analysis: Williams will return to Charlotte after playing there the past two season, starting in every game he played last year. He averaged a career high 6.4 rebounds and 1.4 assists per game last season, along with scoring 11.7 points per contest on 45 percent shooting. Look for Williams to return to his role as a starter on the team in what will be his 12th NBA season.
Analysis: Kaminsky will miss roughly six weeks following the procedure, but he should have no trouble getting back to full strength by the start of training camp in the fall. The second-year big man was never expected to see much run in the Orlando Summer League anyway, so he's not going to be missing out on any important development time.
Analysis: Kidd-Gilchrist underwent the second of two surgeries to repair a torn labrum in February, after missing all but seven games during the 2015-16 campaign. He's progressed to the point in his rehab this summer where he's now able to do some shooting, lifting and running, so it appears Kidd-Gilchrist is well on his way to being ready for the start of next season. We'll likely hear more regarding his recovery when training camp nears, but look for him to jump right back into the Hornets' rotation in his first year of the four-year, $52 million contract extension he received back in August.
Analysis: While Lin has expressed interest to remain with the Hornets, he vastly outperformed his contract in his first year with the team and should be due for a sizable raise on the open market. The 27-year-old will likely seek a longer-term deal as the salary cap expands, and he figures to attract several suitors in search of a combo guard off the bench.
Analysis: It's unclear when exactly Walker sustained the injury, but he struggled throughout the Hornets' first-round series loss to the Heat. Walker averaged 22.7 points and four assists, but shot just 36.6 percent from the field and 32.6 percent from three-point range. In the deciding Game 7, Walker was limited to only nine points (3-16 FG) in 36 minutes. According to a team release, Walker will rest and rehab for roughly two months with the goal of returning to full basketball activities sometime in July.
Analysis: Zeller looked a little gimpy in the last two games of the series due to a knee injury suffered in Game 5, but he was able to tough it out and give the Hornets some quality minutes off the bench. The former No. 4 overall pick served in a starting role for much of the season, but after being roughed up by Heat big man Hassan Whiteside for the first few games of the playoffs, coach Steve Clifford opted to go with Al Jefferson as his starting center for the rest of the series. Zeller's reduced role down the stretch doesn't seem encouraging for his prospects entering 2016-17, but he'll still be coming off the best season of his career, during which he averaged 8.7 points and 6.2 rebounds.
Analysis: Daniels only made four appearances for the Hornets during the series, with all of his cameos coming in garbage time. He's occupied a low standing on the depth chart all season, typically only seeing time when injuries have thinned the Hornets' depth on the wing. Daniels will be a restricted free agent this offseason, and it's unclear if the Hornets have any interest in bringing him back.
Analysis: Coach Steve Clifford dropped Lamb from his rotation during the postseason, instead opting to give increased minutes to Courtney Lee and Jeremy Lin at shooting guard. Lamb only saw the court Sunday due to the blowout nature of the game, but he should be in line for more regular minutes in 2016-17 after signing a three-year contract extension with the Hornets back in November.
