Dwayne Bacon possesses all the tools needed for a breakout year in 2019-2020

Photo by Kent Smith/NBAE via Can the third year pro take the reins of the Hornets offense, establishing himself as one of the best players on the roster? No player displays quite the uniqueness on the Charlotte Hornets roster than Dwayne Bacon.
