Plumlee hasn't yet made the cut for Spain, but he's now in the mix.

Rick Bonnell

In reaction to the lack of big men, Mason Pllumlee has been promoted from U.S. Select team to National Team.

Good morning! It's an other day to get better and learn something #Biznation #nextlevel

Rick Bonnell

Donald Sterling is a silly man. But as @Dan Woike chronicles, you think this is over? ocregister.com/articles/sterl…

Rick Bonnell

Whether it's Woj or Stein or whoever breaks the union story, the real issue is this: How do you break the dysfunction of 20 years?

Rick Bonnell

NBA union politics is boring. But the NBPA sure needs a fresh leader who gets the real issues: blogs.charlotte.com/inside_the_nba…

Rick Bonnell

My poli-sci minor taught me politics is iinherently messy/illogical. Selection of next players union chief would make some doctoral thesis.

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist

Big congrats to @TeamFinalHoops winning 2014 #TheEi8ht championship. Hard work & dedication paid off. Keep grinding. http://t.co/huLxvirOyU

Rick Bonnell

Shelly Sterling wins big in court, but obviously Donald Sterling has a history of being litigious.

Bismack Biyombo

Define your success by how happy you are not by how many things you have!! Always stay humble #Biznationtransformation

Bismack Biyombo

Good morning people! Hope y'all have a good day

Greensboro's @JohnIsner defends his title in Atlanta.

Rick Bonnell

USA Basketball adds Atlanta Hawks power forward Paul Millsap to the national team (replacing Kevin Love).

Bismack Biyombo

Just finish a great workout! Happy Sunday people

Rick Bonnell

It took longer for the Lakers to hire Byron Scott than some marriages last...non-Kardashian marriages.

Rick Bonnell

The Orlando Magic has signed Ben Gordon and Luke Ridnour. Are they working their way up to an Adam Morrison comeback?

Noah Vonleh

Chillen wit young Keve....he a straight goon lol instagram.com/p/q5D2-1RBq8/

Rick Bonnell

If the only downside was a couple extra back-to-backs, everyone in the NBA would applaud a week-long All-Star break, I think.

Rick Bonnell

Per @Ira Winderman NBA strongly considering a week-long All-Star break next season: sun-sentinel.com/sports/miami-h…

Bismack Biyombo

Had a chance to experience the earrings that @starkeycares was giving while I was in #DRC amazing life changing instagram.com/p/q47aJTmrGm/

Rick Bonnell

Why Jannero Pargo is such a good fit to be back as Hornets 3rd point guard: charlotteobserver.com/2014/07/25/506…

Rick Bonnell

Imagine how refreshing it would be for an NFL player not to enter camp claiming "a chip on my shoulder." Same sound bite/new season.

Rick Bonnell

Interesting Hornets didn't sign PJ Hairston simultaneously to Vonleh. Is this the issue with Hairston's agent?

Rick Bonnell

Hornets have signed ninth pick Noah Vonleh and re-signed point guard Jannero Pargo.

Rick Bonnell

Nothing wrong with factoring compensation in any job decision. But Melo saying "I don't care about the money" insults all our intelligence.

Kemba Walker

Very sad news tonight. Loss a really good person! RIP Stixx

Lance Stephenson

Blessed to sign my new deal w/ the #Hornets rockin my Black @Nixon_Now Watch... thanks to my guy @ali8abdullah http://t.co/uct0sl39d5

Cody Zeller

FREE TEA DAY AT MCALISTER'S!!!!!!

Rick Bonnell

Brian Roberts was a Hornet...then he wasn't...now he is again: charlotteobserver.com/2014/07/23/506…

Kemba Walker

Loved meeting the kids who won #sunnyd contest to attend my @ProCamps http://t.co/64Gf47t7pi

Rick Bonnell

Just to clarify, the No.3 center Clifford described would be a veteran-minimum level player. Just insurance/practice guy.

Rick Bonnell

Be fun to watch Roberts and Price in a free-throw contest.

Rick Bonnell

New Hornet Brian Roberts led NBA in FT% last season at 94%. Assistant coach Mark Price shot better than 94% in 3 consecutive seasons.

Rick Bonnell

Per Patrick Ewing on @wfnz Cody Zeller didn't play those last couple of summer league games due to a shoulder injury.

Rick Bonnell

Those Panthers surrounding BofA Stadium must get plenty thirsty in this heat: charlotteobserver.mycapture.com/mycapture/enla…

Rick Bonnell

Terrific column by @tomsorensen on Kemba Walker's reaction to the Lance Stephenson signing: charlotteobserver.com/2014/07/23/506…

Rick Bonnell

Steve Clifford said he'd like a third center behind Big Al and Biz. Said Zeller could play some center, but better suited to power forward.

Rick Bonnell

Brian Roberts returns to being a Hornet, this time in Charlotte: blogs.charlotte.com/inside_the_nba…

Rick Bonnell

"I tried so hard to not say Hornets in New Orleans because of the Pelicans. Now I have to change back." -- Roberts

Rick Bonnell

Detroit and Memphis both expressed interest in Roberts, he said.

Rick Bonnell

Brian Roberts: "I really feel welcome here."

Rick Bonnell

Brian Roberts led NBA in free-throw percentage (94%) last season, Rich Cho noted.

Hornets' Cody Zeller included on U.S. Select Team that will scrimmage with National Team: blogs.charlotte.com/inside_the_nba…

Rick Bonnell

Hornets' Cody Zeller selected to 13-man squad that will scrimmage against U.S. national team this summer.

Bismack Biyombo

Some times people don't understand the why we do things that we do!!

Rick Bonnell

The NBA might like this Las Vegas summer league format for programming, but making a team play 8 games in 11 days is brutal.

Rick Bonnell

I'm told Hornets are not pursuing Shawn Marion.

Bismack Biyombo

While in #DRC had a chance to visit the school and the court where I had my first step on and off the court! instagram.com/p/quT4hhmrLe/

Rick Bonnell

Improved 3-pt. shooting made Marvin Williams attractive to the Hornets: blogs.charlotte.com/inside_the_nba…

Rick Bonnell

Steve Clifford said that while rookies Vonleh and Hairston have "starter's talent," neither likely to have a significant role this season.

Rick Bonnell

Cho on free-agency: "We're almost done."

Rick Bonnell

Marvin Williams and Al Jefferson played together two seasons ago for the Jazz.

Rick Bonnell

"Al is such a dominant presence in the post. I don't know if any one center can guard him." -- Marvin Williams on Al Jefferson.

Rick Bonnell

Rich Cho brings up how much Marvin Williams has improved as a 3-point shooter.

Rick Bonnell

Here's what I'm conveying: Ewing's job is to do what he can to get Zeller, Vonleh and Hairston up to speed. Anything else is gravy.

Rick Bonnell

Hornets approach to Vegas is all about players who will definitely be in Asheville in October. Not saying others don't matter, but...

Rick Bonnell

I think it's great fans are so engaged by Hornets summer league. But it's probably less important than a dropped pass in Spartanburg.

Rick Bonnell

Rockets 83, Hornets 79. Five Hornets coaches are trying to hide their glee to be going home.

Rick Bonnell

The Hornets' glorious run in the Las Vegas Summer League is over. @daringantt is wondering what might have been.

Rick Bonnell

Vonleh can't play post defense right now. That will change.

Rick Bonnell

P.J. Hairston obviously has an NBA game, so long as he gets out of his own way, which is no given.

Rick Bonnell

Mentioned this a few days ago, but it's worth repeating: Vonleh should have a bigger long-term impact, but Hairston more ready to help.

Rick Bonnell

Nice put-back. Hairston has played very well in this tournament.

Rick Bonnell

Dirty little secret about Las Vegas when it's 110 in July. First five days, you ignore it. Then it can be miserable.

Rick Bonnell

Hornets trail by 6 entering fourth quarter. Which means Charlotte's coaches are quietly thinking "Might get to go home!"

Rick Bonnell

Bachynski is so tall. But I've watched him play all these games and his reflexes won't do. Smart, nice kid. He'll make a living somewhere.

Rick Bonnell

I don't see Noah Vonleh necessarily playing a ton as a rookie. But I sure see what makes him a long-term investment.

Rick Bonnell

Josh Davis has best chance of being in Asheville. After that, maybe Mickey McConnell. Outside shot, Rion Brown.

Rick Bonnell

Justin Jackson might have committed the Cardinal sin in the NBA: Shooting foul a mile from basket, 0.3 seconds left.

Rick Bonnell

Greg Anthony is smart and savvy -- deserves a bigger role in broadcasting.

Rick Bonnell

NBATV crew talking about if there's ever an NBA team in Vegas. That could extend Charles Barkley's broadcasting career by decades.

Rick Bonnell

Although Antoine Walker proved there is a "gunner" spot on some NBA teams, with whole different meaning.

Rick Bonnell

People ask me about Josh Davis, and I understand why. The problem is there are 15 spots on an NBA roster. Nothing like an NFL "gunner" spot.

Rick Bonnell

Sometimes Vonleh doesn't play as long as he is. Don't attack the basket with the ball at your chin.

Rick Bonnell

So it appears Cody Zeller will continue in bubble wrap as Hornets pursue that all-important Vegas Summer League title.

Rick Bonnell

Nice outing by Ardrey Kell's Alex Wood for the Braves today.

Rick Bonnell

Hornets summer league team plays Rockets at 6 p.m. Eastern on NBATV.

Bismack Biyombo

Happy Sunday to every one!! God Bless you all

Rick Bonnell

No Stauskas-McDermott showdown tonight. McBuckets resting a sore foot. Bad news for rookie ladder intel @Scott Howard-Cooper

Rick Bonnell

Hornets play winner of Hawks-Rockets at 6 p.m. Eastern tomorrow.

Rick Bonnell

Hornets will play winner of Hawks-Rockets up next. Don't know game time tomorrow.

Rick Bonnell

Final: Hornets 82, Knicks 79

Rick Bonnell

Choke job in final minute?

Rick Bonnell

If Vonleh gets consistent with that lefty jump hook, that's going to be tough to stop.

Rick Bonnell

Vonleh two points short of a double-double.

Rick Bonnell

Hornets up 13 entering fourth quarter. Clearly they were sandbagging first 3 games.

Rick Bonnell

Ewing said last week he'd lean on Hairston for scoring. When he's out, not many options.

Rick Bonnell

Yes, Vonleh needs muscle, but lots of athleticism.

Rick Bonnell

Halftime: Hornets 39, Knicks 37

Rick Bonnell

Tough stretch here for Hairston.

Rick Bonnell

Hornets lead down to 2

Rick Bonnell

Jamie Skeen with a nice post-up. Hornets lead Knicks by 12.

Rick Bonnell

According to broadcast, Zeller not playing today. Clifford did similarly last summer.
