Dwight Howard    C  Hornets

 

 

Coach Steve Clifford said Dwight Howard fits with the team and "the way we play." "So much of our [NBA] game has become a 3-point game, but most teams still get those shots from inside-out," Clifford said. "To me, he still has a big paint presence at both ends of the floor." The Hornets claim to fame last season was keeping their turnovers down, but they ranked 20th in the NBA for total rebounding rate. Howard getting yet another chance could be a positive and don't forget Clifford has already transformed one former Hawk into an asset with Marvin Williams. We still can't sign off on Dwight as a strong target in nine-category leagues.

Julyan Stone    G  Hornets

 

 

Julyan Stone has been granted his release from Italian club Reyer Venezia. This means he's free to sign with the Hornets later this week. The deal is expected to be for two years at the veteran's minimum. Stone will be the third-string PG in Charlotte behind Kemba Walker and Michael Carter-Williams and probably won't be in the rotation on opening night, especially if Malik Monk proves he can play some PG.

Christian Wood    F  Hornets

 

 

Former Hornets big man Christian Wood has signed with Fujian in China, according to David Pick. Charlotte declined their 2017-18 team option for Wood in April, and he was a longshot to make an NBA roster this season. He'll make more money overseas, and if he fares well the 21-year-old could resurface in the Association down the road.

Kemba Walker    G  Hornets

 

 

Kemba Walker played 12 minutes in the 2017 Africa Game on Saturday, scoring 10 points with one assist and two 3-pointers. It was a mild surprise to see Walker out there for an exhibition after his knee surgery back in May. Walker has been fairly durable in the last two seasons with a combined 160 outings, and he's coming off career-highs 23.2 points, a 44.4 field goal percentage and 3.0 treys. He's a fine pick in the early rounds of fantasy drafts.

Kemba Walker    G  Hornets

 

 

Kemba Walker (knee) said that he's medically cleared to play in the NBA Africa exhibition game. He still hasn't decided if he will actually play, but he will likely be limited to a handful of minutes if he does. Regardless, this is great news for the Hornets and confirms that he will be 100 percent for camp after undergoing a minor arthroscopic procedure on his left knee back in May. That was his third left knee surgery in three years, so he carries a little bit more risk as an early-round pick this year.

Johnny O'Bryant    F/C  Hornets

 

 

The Hornets kept Johnny O’Bryant on their roster beyond his Aug. 1 guarantee deadline, making his $1.5 million salary fully guaranteed. O'Bryant will have a tough time cracking the rotation in Charlotte. The Hornets frontcourt is crowded, with Marvin Williams, Frank Kaminsky, Dwight Howard and Cody Zeller all ahead of O'Bryant on the depth chart.
