Sooooo this isn't quite as big as LeBron James-back-to-Cleveland news, but we have the starting lineup for the Hornets' summer league roster's first game tonight, which begins at 8:30 p.m.
PG Mickey McConnell; SG P.J. Hairston; SF Justin Brownlee; PF Noah Vonleh; C Jordan Bachynski.— Rick Bonnell (@rick_bonnell) July 11, 2014
Cody Zeller is apparently out to attend his brother's wedding. If he were available, I bet he'd start at center. Patrick Ewing is coaching.
The game will be televised on ESPN's Watch ESPN app at 8:30 p.m. or you could watch it live using the NBA's Summer League broadcast service for $14.99 for full access for the duration of the league. It will be re-broadcast on NBATV Saturday morning at 9 a.m.
In other news, the Southeast division just got a bit easier, though they'll still have to play LeBron just as many times. However, I don't think Josh McRoberts is exactly thrilled about the new development, and I tend to think the Hornets just jumped Miami in the race for Marvin Williams. ... As sad as that sentence is.
