James Borrego said that he anticipates playing Miles Bridges mostly at power forward this season, and that the second-year player could even become the team's starter.
The Hornets are looking at a rebuild and it really wouldn't make sense to make Bridges come off the bench behind Marvin Williams, especially if they view power forward as his long-term fit. After the All-Star break, Bridges averaged 9.6 points, 5.3 boards, 1.6 assists, 1.1 steals, 0.6 blocks and 1.1 threes in 26.2 mpg while shooting 49.0 percent from the field. That's a fun, versatile stat set, and Bridges delivered solid top-100 value down the stretch. He's shaping up as a quality fantasy option in the back half of drafts, though we'll see if Borrego sticks to the early plan.
