Does Kidd-Gilchrist, who has a $13 million player option for next season, see this as a reflection on his future in Charlotte? “I don’t know,” Kidd-Gilchrist said. “I have a lot of love for Charlotte, for the fans, for this team and my teammates.

But I can only control what I control … I’ve been here a long time, grown from a boy to a man. It’s never fun not playing, but I just don’t know.”
