Vegas view of yesterday: Cavs 4:1 to win title. Heat 30:1. And Hornets 60:1.

Rick Bonnell

Hornets-Warriors game on NBATV now, I'm told.

Rick Bonnell

Final: Warriors 70, Hornets 58

Rick Bonnell

Vonleh rejected in the lane by Warriors' Mitchell Watt

Rick Bonnell

Vonleh with a put-back.

Rick Bonnell

End of 3rd: Warriors 60, Hornets 43.

Rick Bonnell

Nemanja Nedovic can really shoot. Don't the Warriors have their ration of those guys already?

Rick Bonnell

James Michael McAdoo doing some nice things in pick-and-roll. Just got to the line pretty efficiently.

Rick Bonnell

Hairston scores on a baseline runner.

Rick Bonnell

Hornets shot 27 percent in the first half, including 1-of-12 from 3.

Rick Bonnell

P.J. Hairston's first half: 0-of-7 from field, 0-of-4 from 3-point range.

Rick Bonnell

Halftime: Warriors 47, Hornets 23. I guess they're no longer the Boys of Summer.

Rick Bonnell

Warriors lead Hornets 45-21 and Golden State media asking me if this resembles 7-59.

Rick Bonnell

Shot clock....as Hairston loses the ball going to the rim.

Rick Bonnell

P.J. Hairston is really struggling with his shot so far. And now he has two fouls.

Rick Bonnell

End of first: Warriors 21, Hornets 13.

Rick Bonnell

Jordan Bachynski with an illegal screen. He'd been close to the same foul two earlier possessions. He'll learn.

Rick Bonnell

Thomas & Mack empty for Hornets-Warriors and for good reason: Jabari Parker-vs.-Andrew Wiggins next door in the other gym.

Rick Bonnell

P.J. Hairston has clanged a couple of jumpers early.

Rick Bonnell

Mickey McConnell with a runner for Hornets' first points nearly six minutes into the game.

Rick Bonnell

Warriors take 11-0 lead. Undrafted James Michael McAdoo with two early buckets.

Rick Bonnell

Cody Zeller isn't in Vegas for today's Warriors game. His brother, Tyler, gets married tomorrow. Cody will be in Vegas Sunday.

Rick Bonnell

Starters for Hornets: McConnell, Hairston, Brownlee, Vonleh, Bachynski.

Rick Bonnell

Hornets-Warriors tipoff in about 90 minutes. As @daringantt is fond of saying, Bobcats were NBA's greatest team in July.

Rick Bonnell

I'd probably pick the Wizards in the Southeast, but I'd give the Hornets a chance. Jordan's interim goal is home-court in 1st round.

Rick Bonnell

If Chris Bosh goes to the Rockets, the artists formerly known as the Bobcats could compete for a division title for the first time.

Rick Bonnell

Don't have all the details, but was assured Hornets' trade intent was preserved.

Rick Bonnell

Can confirm Hornets and Cavs have reworked Haywood trade, but new version still has Cavs getting Powell and absorbing $2m owed Haywood.

Bismack Biyombo

Day 3 of my camp in Lubumbashi was a success!! Looking forward to the all start tomorrow.. #RDC #Bless http://t.co/9V3JRZ6PIA

Rick Bonnell

A lot of you have asked about McRoberts. Would think he's still a lock with Heat if Bosh stays (but that's clearly no given).

Gerald Henderson

now buying: AI Sixers jersey T, Randle Cunningham throwback Eagles jersey, Dr. J throwback Sixers Jersey @leakyroof02 should appreciate

Rick Bonnell

Hornets went so far as to inform Haywood of the deal day after the draft.

Rick Bonnell

Hornets and Cavs agreed on draft night to send Brendan Haywood and Dwight Powell to CLE for Gee's unguaranteed contract.

Rick Bonnell

There apparently reports Cavs now want to send Alonzo Gee to NO. I haven't been able to reach anyone from Hornets for comment.

Kemba Walker

Big shout to @MonsterProducts for taking care of me. Excited to see what you and @excelsm do!! http://t.co/etoHmj3Cab

Rick Bonnell

As previously mentioned, Hornets' 8:30 p.m. game tonight vs. Warriors not televised live on NBATV. Tape delay 9 a.m. Saturday.

PG Mickey McConnell; SG P.J. Hairston; SF Justin Brownlee; PF Noah Vonleh; C Jordan Bachynski.

Rick Bonnell

With Zeller not playing tonight (brother's wedding Saturday), here's Hornets starters tonight from Patrick Ewing (more)...

Rick Bonnell

Cody Zeller won't be with the Hornets in Las Vegas until Sunday. His brother, Tyler, is getting married Saturday.

Rick Bonnell

Miami Heat no longer the team Josh McRoberts thought he would be joining.

Rick Bonnell

I would say @BIEjr job just got a lot more interesting and involved.

Rick Bonnell

Got up at 5 in Vegas to beat the heat for some exercise. Gorgeous sunrise. http://t.co/amZmubKVhC

Gerald Henderson

Mr. George grumpy as hell. nosey too

Gerald Henderson

Rick Bonnell

Hornets make it official that Chad Buchanan has been hired as assistant general manager. Buchanan left Trail Blazers for this job.

Rick Bonnell

Hornets rookie P.J. Hairston explains how Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon was driving his car when arrested: charlotteobserver.com/2014/07/10/503…

Rick Bonnell

That last tweet was Hornets coach Steve Clifford on P.J. Hairston's weekend misadventures.

Rick Bonnell

“We need to start having more meetings about his defense and shot selection, and less about what he’s got to do to be a dependable player.”

Rick Bonnell

PJ Hairston says he met Josh Gordon at a grocery store in the Triangle, and they chose to swap cars for the night.

Rick Bonnell

Seems to be just now registering on much of Hornets fan base that there are pitfalls to offer sheets.

Rick Bonnell

Someone just told me Jazz has 345,000 seconds to decide whether to match.

Rick Bonnell

In the mean time, Hayward counts as nearly $15 million this season as a cap hold against Hornets payroll.

Rick Bonnell

That means sign-and-trade option is history and Hornets could wait until end of business Sunday for Jazz to make decision. (More)...

Rick Bonnell

Just to clarify: Hayward now has a 4-year, $63 million contract to play for Hornets that Jazz has right to assume (more)...

Rick Bonnell

Gordon Hayward signed his offer sheet. Under NBA rules, Jazz has until July 13 at 11:59 p.m.. to decide whether to match and retain him.

Rick Bonnell

I'm checking out. G'Night.

Rick Bonnell

Source: There is no last-minute S&T stuff going on. This is a straight offer sheet. @Jody Genessy

Rick Bonnell

Last time I was this bored by process, I bought a townhouse...

Rick Bonnell

In other news, the deer are long gone and my fire pit is flickering. WIFI is still strong.

Rick Bonnell

So @Jody Genessy and I are sitting around, waiting for something that is likely trivial. Sure wish I was the one on Mountain Time right now.

Rick Bonnell

The Observer has learned...nothing in the 79 minutes since the NBA moratorium commenced. (Yawn)

Rick Bonnell

With anticipation I can't describe I opened my email waiting for confirmation offer sheet is done. No...but Capital One loves me.

Rick Bonnell

Unexpected education while waiting for Hayward offer sheet to be official: Random Heat fans are far more irrational than I realized.

Rick Bonnell

Josh McRoberts told the Heat he's coming after they offered him $23 million. Neither he or agent would/should renege.

Rick Bonnell

I've received 10 "if LeBron isn't with Miami, does McRoberts...." Stop. This is not how business is done in the NBA.

Rick Bonnell

Only other thing Cho might/should do is renounce McRoberts, rather than wait for Miami to sign him.

Rick Bonnell

Rich Cho's logical to-do list: Submit offer sheet, get trade approval on @bwood_33, cut Alonzo Gee's unguaranteed salary.

Rick Bonnell

BTW, one of the fawns might be a prospect -- what a wingspan.

Rick Bonnell

BREAKING: The deer and her 2 fawns are back on the fringe of my backyard as I wait for Hornets to make Hayward offer sheet official.

Rick Bonnell

ICYMI: 12 things to know and tell about Gordon Hayward: charlotteobserver.com/2014/07/09/503…

Rick Bonnell

Your countdown-to-midnight reading: Who's this Gordon Hayward dude who almost quit basketball for tennis? charlotteobserver.com/2014/07/09/503…

Rick Bonnell

The real issue with LeBron's decision: When's the last time someone from Akron chose to move back from Florida?

Rick Bonnell

So it's 23 minutes til the end of NBA moratorium. Riley is sweating LeBron. Phil is sweating Melo. Pop is sipping $200 cab and laughing.

Rick Bonnell

As I recall, the Knicks messed with Rockets once by making it hard for Houston to put offer sheet in right hands.

Rick Bonnell

A nuance on offer sheets: The 72-hour clock would start when Jazz has the contract, NOT the minute Gordon Hayward signs.

Rick Bonnell

The real effect on Rockets of a Parsons offer sheet is it becomes a 3-day deadline on offer to Chris Bosh.

Rick Bonnell

So once Chandler Parsons signs that offer sheet with Dallas, he's off the table for Hornets should Jazz match on Hayward.

Sitting at my home typing, with back to the window. See a lightning arc reflected off laptop screen. Quick enough Thunder it was close.

Bismack Biyombo

Good night from Lubumbashi DRC! First day of my camp was great.. Can't wait for tomorrow!! #Bless #kids #love #home http://t.co/8t2HYvYPcC

New NBA salary cap is $63.065 million per team (up 7.5%). Tax threshold is $76.829 million (up 7.1%)

Gordon Hayward shot that could've cost Duke the national championship: youtube.com/watch?v=hdMUfu…

Rick Bonnell

$63 million man Gordon Hayward had 3 scholarship offers -- IUPUI, Purdue and Butler. He nearly gave up basketball for tennis.

Rick Bonnell

Jazz reinforce position a Hayward offer sheet will be matched, per @Jody Genessy deseretnews.com/article/865606…
