The Charlotte Hornets (23-27) are out in Salt Lake City taking on the Utah Jazz (31-19) tonight and hope to rebound from a six-game losing streak. The Hornets traded Spencer Hawes and Roy Hibbert to the Milwaukee Bucks for Miles Plumlee yesterday and signed Mike Tobey and Ray McCallum to 10-day contracts in an attempt to steady the franchise.
