Charlotte Hornets general manager Mitch Kupchak took to the podium to filed questions from the media regarding the upcoming season. Here is a stream of Tweets from those who were there with my commentary in between.


Kupchak has repeated this several times during the offseason. Hopefully he can make that goal a reality.

It doesn’t sound like Kupchak plans to use the free agent pool to chase short term gains. That’s a good thing. Those kinds of decisions have plagued this organization in the past.

I just love Kupchak referring to his own theoretical future trade as a savvy trade.

PJ Washington for Rookie of the Year. Looking like a great pick so far.

I love hearing the different ways Kupchak admits the team will not win a lot while not directly saying that he doesn’t expect the team to win a lot.

Typical offseason speak, but it’s nice hearing the front office acknowledge the fluidity of the roster.


I got a little chuckle out of this one for some reason. Almost felt like a slight to Bacon.


I sure hope so. This season might be his last chance to prove that he belongs in Charlotte long term.

That’s a more flattering comment about Dwayne Bacon.

Another way of saying “Don’t expect us to win a lot this season.”

Seems as though Washington has played his way out of Swarm minutes. I don’t see any reason for him to not get steady NBA minutes out of the gate.
