Bobcats will play tons of zone to make up for their tiny backcourt
 
Coach Paul Silas apparently does plan to use DJ Augustin and Kemba Walker together a lot (not shocking), and to make up for their tiny size, they'll play tons of zone

A bit more here:

I could be wrong but looking at their roster I don't really see very many players that I think would be good in a zone.

You need guys that are capable of constant communication and who know how to rotate.

Their best defender right now may be Kwame. Is he vocal enough to direct the team?

There is a pretty big difference between running a zone and running it well enough to count on it in important situations like the Mavs do.

Sound perfect if they plan on using Biyombo and Kemba a lot. It will help show Biyombo's great shot blocking... that being said, a zone needs a defensive anchor and you can't trust a rookie with that. Sure he can block like crazy, but he's not vocal enough.

Kwame is a free agent. Doubt he returns unless they offer him the most.
