The Charlotte Hornets kick off their 2018 Las Vegas Summer League campaign today against the Oklahoma City Thunder. It’s our first chance to see rookies Miles Bridges and Devonte’ Graham, and it’s a chance to see the team’s most promising young players — Malike Monk, Dwayne Bacon, and Willy Hernangomez — get meaningful minutes as well.
The Hornets have the second highest odds to win the Vegas Summer League, while the Thunder have the third worst. That said, it might be wise to temper our expectations. Nothing like getting let down, right?
Regardless of the result today and moving forward, hopefully the Hornets play basketball we can enjoy.
The projected starting five for Charlotte:
- Devonte’ Graham
- Malik Monk
- Dwayne Bacon
- Miles Bridges
- Willy Hernangomez
Chat it up, and enjoy the game!
