Default Hornets coming off very disappointing season

The Hornets are coming off a disappointing 33-49 season in which they lost their last six games. The front office focused on two flaws -- a lack of height and deficient 3-point shooting. Seven new players were acquired, nearly half the maximum 15 roster spots. There was a mandate for change.

You might question that considering four of five starting spots already seem foregone conclusions. Point guard Kemba Walker, shooting guard Nicolas Batum, small forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and center Al Jefferson all figure to get the nod as starters.

But the Hornets pursued better depth over the summer and that means playing time is more up for grabs.

Clifford wants to play ďone-in, four-out,Ē NBA terminology for surrounding Jefferson with four 3-point threats. The Hornets arenít going to get many 3s from Kidd-Gilchrist, so itís important the power forward can make a corner 3-pointer to spread the floor.
