Hernangomez, an All-Rookie selection last season who has had issues with conditioning, logged a DNP in Saturday’s 111-107 loss to the Pistons, two days after being held on the bench until garbage time. Hornacek knows Steve Mills and GM Scott Perry contradicted themselves after labeling Hernangomez part of the team’s “young core.” “That was all before the trade for Enes Kanter.
