Hornets C Al Jefferson will not opt out of contract
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

Center Al Jefferson had the opportunity to opt out of his contract with the Hornets, but he told the Charlotte Observer that he has "unfinished business" with the team. 

Jefferson averaged 16.6 points and 8.4 rebounds, numbers way down from the 2013-14 campaign, when he carried the then-Bobcats to the playoffs after averaging 21.8 points and 10.8 rebounds. 

"I've got unfinished business here. That's not even an option for me," Jefferson said. "Unless something dramatic changed, I can't see myself opting out, and leaving that bad taste in my mouth. And in the Charlotte Hornets' mouth. I can't walk away from that."

The team signed Stephenson to a three year, $27 million contract in the offseason. Cho said the signing, "didn't work out as we expected it to ... We thought it would work out a lot better," per NBA.com

Stephenson was benched in several games near the end of the season and set a record for worst NBA 3-point percentage in a season.

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Hornets' Clifford: Kemba Walker will never average 30 points
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Although Hornets coach Steve Clifford said guard Kemba Walker is not the type of player to average 30 points per game, he did say that Walker can be a dynamic player, reports The Charlotte Observer.

"You can win with him," he said.

Clifford added that on an ideal team, Walker would be considered the third or fourth scoring option.

With Clifford admitting the Hornets lacked offense this season, he said the team would like to add a proven scorer during the offseason.

"Offensively we were challenged, and we didn't make the improvement we needed to," he said. "Going into the summer, that's what has to be addressed."
