Charlotte Hornets waive Justin Cobbs sportando.com/en/usa/nba/138… Hornets ass. GM Buchanan: He has a bright future

Emiliano Carchia

The Charlotte Hornets have waived Justin Cobbs, source told Sportando

Rick Bonnell

Tonight was the warning bell why Josh McRoberts was the Bobcats' security blanket a year ago.

Rick Bonnell

I get why Cho spent the money on Stephenson/Williams/Roberts. I just don't know if Hornets are appreciably better in the East.

Rick Bonnell

I've mentioned this for a while: The Hornets are more talented than the Bobcats a year ago. That doesn't necessarily translate to better.

Sam Amico

In the event you've been waiting for Michael Jordan to tweet, he is taking over @Charlotte Hornets account Tuesday. #breathoffreshairjordan

Rick Bonnell

Final: Pacers 88, Hornets 79.

Rick Bonnell

Hornets threw about eight passes that possession, but ball never went anywhere good.

Rick Bonnell

Four of five starters in for Hornets. Exception is Gary Neal, who was ejected.

Candace Buckner

#Hornets want to be here, I guess. They've cut the lead down to 75-70 with 6 mins to go in 4th Q

Candace Buckner

#Hornets Gary Neal picked up two technical fouls here at the 11:07 mark and is ejected, proving that nobody wants to be in this game.

Rick Bonnell

Hornets have trimmed the deficit to 13.

Rick Bonnell

Pacers lead now at 21. One bright spot for Hornets: MKG is 4-of-4 from the field.

Rick Bonnell

Hornets giving up 58 percent shooting and have six turnovers to Pacers' two. Not Steve Clifford ball at all.

Rick Bonnell

Pacers pull out to a 36-18 lead, shooting 56 percent. Hornets defense just not sharp this preseason.

Rick Bonnell

How shorthanded are the Hornets? Justin Cobbs playing point 2nd quarter because Clifford needs Pargo at shooting guard.

Rick Bonnell

CX: End of first: Pacers 28, Hornets 18

Andrew Perna

LT: Lance sitting out (duh), but I still thinking he’ll lead the Hornets in FGA.

Candace Buckner

#Hornets starters: Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Marvin Williams, Al Jefferson, Gary Neal, Brian Roberts.

Rick Bonnell

Hornets made out well -- individually and collectively -- in two recent ESPN rankings: blogs.charlotte.com/inside_the_nba…

Rick Bonnell

Tonight's Hornets starters: Brian Roberts, Gary Neal, MKG, Marvin Williams and Al Jefferson. Cody Zeller (bruised hand) intends to play.

Yet another Charlotte Hornets injury, and this one is a starter: blogs.charlotte.com/inside_the_nba…

Candace Buckner

Long view of the last man on the #Hornets practice court: Noah Vonleh. http://t.co/rU1tPDXS9i

Mark Deeks

From Sunday, @MatthewHochberg looks at how Lance Stephenson betters the Hornets guards...if they can fit them all in. bit.ly/1t5x6hi

Rick Bonnell

Reading through old Hornets stories for @theobserver special section. That Tim Kempton once fit a Whopper in his mouth still makes me laugh.

Rick Bonnell

If you're a @SiriusXMNBA subscriber, Malik Rose and @Frank Isola taped a Hornets preview show that runs 7-10 a.m. tomorrow.

Rick Bonnell

Researching a story for special section on what made original Hornets charming. Been a while since I pulled this out. http://t.co/12OPaYWdv0

Rick Bonnell

Your PM Hornets report: Injuries still piling up a week out from regular-season opener. charlotteobserver.com/2014/10/22/525…

Sean Deveney

In 13-14, @Portland Trail Blazers @Phoenix Suns @Charlotte Hornets made 20-W leaps. Over 20 years, only 6 of 18 teams got better after 20-W jump sportingnews.com/nba/story/2014…

Rick Bonnell

Hornets injury-ridden. Stephenson (groin) not at practice. Zeller (hand) and Vonleh (ankle) both sat out contact drills.

Rick Bonnell

Per @Adrian Wojnarowski the Hornets voted against changing lottery system. Looks like mostly small-market teams nixed the idea.

Barry Jackson

In NBA.com's annual poll of all NBA GMs, 59.3% said Wizards will win Southeast Division.29.6% said Heat;7.4 Hawks;3.7 Bobcats

Rick Bonnell

Um, yeah. Yet the single biggest push-back I heard about my pre-camp predictions was the Heat still finishing ahead of the Hornets.

Rick Bonnell

Frankly, first thing Hornets should do in that regard is put Bobby Phills' jersey in the rafters, simply as a nod to Pelicans' accommodation

Rick Bonnell

If you want to chat Hornets, I'll be at the Observer booth at Buzzfest Friday at 7 p.m.. and Saturday at 3 p.m. Unless, you know, Powerball.

Rick Bonnell

This is no big surprise, but Hornets intend to wear their alternative teal uniforms opening night.

Rick Bonnell

Hornets' Steve Clifford on Cody Zeller's fouls, wing rotation, if Noah Vonleh should play in D-League and much more: charlotteobserver.com/2014/10/21/525…
