Charlotte Hornets Rumors
Sources have indicated Orlando is hotter on Stackhouse’s trail, and he reportedly has an interview there shortly. Charlotte has expressed interest, too. Knicks GM Scott Perry was in the Pistons’ front office, overlapping for two seasons when Stackhouse played in Detroit.
Shams Charania: Sources: Charlotte and Orlando plan to interview Jerry Stackhouse, coach of Raptors’ G League team, for their head coach openings. Stackhouse also has interview with the Knicks this week.
“Backing up Dwight Howard, I got an opportunity whenever he got hurt my first year, and started playing good, finished hard at the rim,” said Capela, who averaged career highs in points (13.9), rebounds (10.8), blocks (1.9) and minutes (27.5) in 74 starts this season. “That’s why I’m still coming up with energy and run hard, set screens and finish hard at the rim.”
