Hornets news and notes, October 7th edition

We’re in the doldrums right now. Let’s see what kind of news we can dig up.

NBA: Cleveland Cavaliers at Charlotte Hornets
The news is as barren as this arena.
Jim Dedmon-USA TODAY Sports

The Charlotte Hornets wrapped up their bubble camp a few days ago, and we still have over a month until the 2020 NBA Draft, so we have some time to kill. There hasn’t really been any news about prospect workouts or anything, but hopefully that’ll change in the coming weeks. In the meantime, here are some Hornets-related things that have gone on but didn’t get their own story here on At the Hive. We’ll start with the bad news first.

  • Willy Hernangomez apologized on Twitter after attending a party in Madrid that had to be broken up over covid concerns. There were about 200 people at the party, which is just not a smart thing to be doing right now. That’s especially true for Hernangomez, who is set to become a free agent in a matter of weeks.

Better news now

Sam Perley of Hornets.com wrote a quick article recapping the bubble experience. A couple takeaways:

  • The Hornets experimented with Malik Monk, Cody Martin, and Caleb Martin as primary ball handlers and PJ Washington as a center
  • James Borrego trusts Mitch Kupchak to make the right pick in the draft and says the two have great chemistry when it comes to determining what the roster needs
