Zeller missed 29 games over the past two seasons. The Hornets’ record in the 20 games he missed in 2016-17 was 3-17. “I got banged up so much, playing so many minutes,” said Zeller, who has gained about 10 pounds in the off-season to 250. “A lot of times, I’m outsized by 40 or 50 pounds. I’m used to it — I can do it for games – but over four games in five nights or back-to-backs, my body starts to wear down.”
Hornets coach Steve Clifford wanted to experiment some with Monk playing the point at Orlando Summer League. Monk’s ankle sprain delayed that experiment, but the Hornets figure to explore that option in the preseason. As to Monk’s playmaking ability, he’s already made an impression on a veteran teammate in a handful of pre-camp workouts. “I didn’t know (his game) a whole lot when we drafted him, just highlights,” said Hornets center Cody Zeller. “These past few weeks have been really good (in demonstrating) his knack for the game, particularly offensively.”
