Following his Tuesday morning workout at Spectrum Center, the Arkansas native spoke with Hornets.com about how things have gone the last few months, while also commenting on what will be a very different Charlotte rotation this upcoming season. “[I’m] putting on a lot of muscle, a lot of strength and just getting a lot of shots up. It’s gone pretty well,” stated Monk, whose listed weight was an even 200 pounds last season. “We’ve got a way different team. There’s a lot more opportunities for a lot of young guys. My mindset is a little different, but it’s mostly the same because I just want to get on the court. If I get on the court, I know I can do what I’ve been doing this summer.”
He would get in Miles Bridges’ face for missing a defensive assignment. He would show Devonte Graham the open teammates he overlooked. He would point out the spots on the floor Malik Monk should have reached faster. Parker didn’t do this to be a know-it-all. He did it because coach James Borrego installed him as the Hornets’ savant-in-residence before training camp began in Chapel Hill last September.
On Tuesday night, reports of a potential deal that would send Grizzlies center Marc Gasol to the Hornets heated up, with some combination of wings Malik Monk and/or Michael Kidd-Gilchrist as the chief return piece for Memphis. But league sources told Sporting News that the Hornets and Grizzlies do not have an agreement in place, and that there is increasing skepticism on both sides that a trade can be brought to bear ahead of Thursday’s NBA trade deadline. The Hornets have had interest in Gasol for some time, but a deal has not progressed.
