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.

Rick Bonnell

Hornets-Knicks on NBATV at 4

Rick Bonnell

Jordan told Stephenson to "calm down" if he wants to prosper as a Hornet: charlotteobserver.com/2014/07/18/505…

Rick Bonnell

It can't be just me, right? Since moving to SLC, the Jazz has changed primary colors 27 times.

Rick Bonnell

I won't switch from IPhone to Samsung, but that commercial is terrific. Spend so much time in airports looking for an outlet.

Rick Bonnell

Whoa: Ballmer might kill deal to buy Clippers if litigation drags on beyond Aug. 15?

Rick Bonnell

I found it amusing you can bet on summer-league games at Caesars. You have a better chance of picking the winner in a soapbox derby.

Rick Bonnell

Larry Brown had plenty of misses (Augustin over Lopez) but he nailed it what an NBA talent Kevin Love would be.

Rick Bonnell

George Karl told @Jerry Zgoda Wolves can't afford a Love soap opera. George knows. If Cavs offering Wiggins and Bennett, time to deal.

Rick Bonnell

Joey Crawford live on NBATV: hope fans get to see he's not the ogre he's portrayed. Funny, smart, jovial.

Cody Zeller

I'm 21 years old in Vegas with no plans for the night! Sounds like a perfect opportunity to see a new animated movie! http://t.co/eUMRw0zKMb

Rick Bonnell

Don't mean to get all serious, but...Anyone who went to Syracuse takes Lockerbie very personally. What I see from the Ukraine is disgusting.

Rick Bonnell

Marv Albert, watch out. This @David Aldridge kid can do some play-by-play...

I can't take this #alloutshow right now

Bismack Biyombo

Is been great giving back to RDCongo! Thanks to @Jordan and every one for being part of this! #love #inspiration http://t.co/n16ywxpU7Q

Rick Bonnell

Michael Jordan was very direct in telling Lance Stephenson what he needs to change about his behavior, according to Steve Clifford.

Rick Bonnell

Cho calls free-agency "a pretty fluid process."

Rick Bonnell

Stephenson: "I bring more to the table than blowing in someone's ear."

Rick Bonnell

Stephenson: "I'm a different guy on the court than off the court."

Rick Bonnell

Free agency was "very stressful," Stephenson said.

Rick Bonnell

Cho says primary attraction to Stephenson was he's "a big-time competitor."

Rick Bonnell

Cho calls Lance Stephenson "one of the best young players in the league."

Rick Bonnell

Jannero Pargo will re-sign with Hornets next week to be 3rd point guard.

Gerald Henderson

headed home for the night or headed to work? http://t.co/k04yEOW58w
