Hornets Summer League

Recommended Posts

Well since Chuck was banned and his thread got deleted, here is a new one.

Currenrtly the Hornets are tied 37-37 with the Raptors at half.

Miles out there trying to put everyone in a body bag but he's also 2-11.

Joe Chealey looks to be a pleasant surprise. The way Buzz Peterson spoke of him during the intermission, I wouldn't be surprised to see him get a contract as the 14th or 15th roster player.

I live in Charleston and CofC had an awesome run this year. Joe Chealey is a baller. Would love for him to make the roster.

Bridges was 1-8 from 3pt land..

I gotta give it to him though - he keeps shooting.. MKG would never even think about attempting 8 different 3's in a game..

Well the Hornets summer league has come to an end with an OT loss to the Raptors.

We lost Monk, Graham, and Hernangomez to various reasons so unfortunately we didn't get to see the full potential of the team.

Regardless...

Monk and Hernangomez both played well during the respective minutes that they each received. Each figures to be a key part in the success of this year's team.

Bacon had a great summer league and figures to get a little burn this year. If there is an injury, he could see a lot of time. Next year, I could see him backing up Monk as we will more than likely lose Lamb to free agency.

Bridges showed flashes but it's clear his shot is not even close to where it needs to be to get a lot of minutes. He's a human highlight reel but he needs to work on that shot, a lot.

Graham, well we don't really know the extent of his injury yet. It's doubtful that he was going to have an impact this year anyway, but he may have a solid future in the NBA.

Kubolka didn't show much outside of the first game but he's also very raw. Maybe we'll see him in few years,

Macura looks Iike he may have the tools to be an average NBA bench player. He'll get his burn with the Swarm and maybe we'll see him down the road.

Chealey played really well down the stretch and assistant GM Buzz Peterson mentioned him by name during an interview with Isiah Thomas. If Graham's injury is going to keep him out for a bit I could see the Hornets signing Chealey as the 3PG.

Gabe DeVoe and B.J. Johnson showed enough that I could see the Swarm signing then. They don't look to have NBA future's but they are certainly G-League players and may be able to play themselves into a two-way contract in the future with an NBA team

Mathiang didn't get much burn but it also doesn't look like he's progressssed much. He'll be with the Swarm again this year but he is unlikely to ever make it to the NBA.

Petrasek and Henderson will likely head back to the Swarm as well. They didn't show much and like Mathiang they are unlikely to ever see the NBA.

Shannon Scott was without a doubt our worst player and I don't see anyone picking him up. He'll probably head back overseas.

That's all I got!

Never got to see this team at it's full peak..smh

But love how much better Monk, Gomez, and Bacon look.. All should contribute and get solid minutes this year..

Dam Devonte luck...smh.. He looked advance for a rookie guard with court vision and how to run a team..

Miles showed so much game.. That even when his shot wasn't falling he stilled got dirty points played great defense and REBOUNDS like a beast.. So he is always a plus while on the court.. Hopefully the new coaching staff is going to give him the minutes he needs to develop into a star...

Thoughts on this game:

We didn't shoot the ball well at all. Even Bacon wasn't efficient but he still played well. He got to his spots and showed a nice ability to get around the defender and get to where he wanted. 

Bridges shot bad, but his positives far outweigh his negatives. He was explosive and had some wow moments which we all need to see. He has nice handles, good vision and will be a great rebounder and help defender in time. 

Macura is a hustle player and gets his hand on a ton of balls. Chealey looked good in the first half but not so much in the second. I thought Mango played well on defense. He influenced lots of shots but I was hoping for more from him.
