Malik Monk frustrated about playing time

Monk says he hasn’t gotten much feedback from the coaches beyond work hard and stay ready. “Super, super, super freaking frustrating (with) the waiting,” Monk said. “The month of February, I finally became an NBA player, finally got the minutes I thought I deserved a couple of years ago. I was proving myself. And that’s all I really could ask for at that point.”
Monk is frank now in saying he wasn’t mature enough to be an NBA player when he entered the 2017 draft. The Hornets selected him 11th, and it took him three seasons to make a single start. Right after that start — in late February in Indianapolis — Monk was suspended indefinitely under the NBA’s anti-drug policy. Multiple people within the Hornets organization have told me how different Monk seems since being reinstated: more accountable and more flexible. As if he came to realize how fragile his NBA future might be if he doesn’t change impressions before reaching free agency after this season.
