PJ Washington showed well in his preseason debut, but he has to compete with veterans Marvin Williams and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist for minutes. Cody Martin hasn’t shown as well so far, but the coaching staff seems to like what he brings to the table. When the...

PJ Washington shines as Hornets fall to Celtics, 106-105

Photo by Brian Babineau/NBAE via The Hornets rookie came in ready to roll despite dealing with a foot injury for most of the offseason. The Charlotte Hornets lost to the Boston Celtics last night, but that’s the least of anyone’s concerns. We got to see this new look Hornets team in action for the first time, and there were some things to get excited about. The first quarter was strange.

He’s a bit older and was productive at a prestigious basketball school, but he didn’t have the otherworldly ‘upside’ that other potential picks in that range possessed. That superficial analysis earned the Hornets some eye rolls and jeers from the...
