Hornets GM Mitch Kupchak confirmed that no player other than All-Star Kemba Walker has assured himself of heavy minutes heading into the season as this could take several weeks or longer to solidify.
Collectively last year, the Hornets reserves were last among 30 NBA teams in defensive efficiency and third-worst in field-goal percentage (42.2 percent) and this has been a point of emphasis for new head coach James Borrego. Miles Bridges averaged the most minutes in five preseason exhibition games but the team has a crowded frontcourt and the rookie will have to fight for minutes with Marvin Williams, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and Frank Kaminsky.
