The play of Courtney Lee, whom the Hornets acquired from the Grizzlies, has pushed ex-UConn standout Jeremy Lamb deeper down the bench. Lamb did not play in the Hornets’ impressive 114-100 win over the Celtics last Monday. Lamb was a regular in the rotation before an injury cost him time at the end of January. Since then his minutes have been sporadic, while Lee, shooting nearly 40 percent from the 3-point line in 28 games with Charlotte, has played big minutes at shooting guard. Lamb signed a three-year deal with the Hornets last November after riding the bench in Oklahoma City, but he appears in a similar situation in Charlotte.
Courtney Lee wasn’t expecting to play for the Charlotte Hornets this season — or any NBA franchise other than the Memphis Grizzlies for that matter. But Lee said one day after members of the Grizzlies front office reassured him and his agent that they weren’t trying to deal him, he learned that he was headed to Charlotte as part of a three-way trade that also included the Miami Heat. “It kind of threw me off,” Lee said Thursday after Hornets practice.
