Bacon produced 11 points (3-5 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 4-5 FT), and five rebounds across 20 minutes in Monday's 122-113 win over the Heat.
Bacon has seen significant court time in Charlotte's first two preseason contests but faces an uphill battle on the depth chart. the second-year Florida state product certainly has the material to be a starter in the NBA but at the moment he'll be relegated to the second unit in the short term, limiting his overall value.
Bacon generated 28 points (11-27 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 6-7 FT), five rebounds, two assists and one steal across 35 minutes during the Hornets' 87-84 overtime loss to the Raptors in a Las Vegas Summer League contest Saturday.
The 2017 second-round pick remained highly aggressive throughout the contest, leading all players in shot attempts and scoring. Bacon maximized his opportunities in Las Vegas, averaging 18.2 points, 4.4 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 1.2 steals while generating considerable momentum heading into his second NBA training camp.
Bacon recorded 19 points (7-18 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 4-4 FT), three rebounds and an assist across27 minutes in Wednesday's 87-69 Vegas Summer League playoff win over the Warriors.
Bacon has shown no ill effects from the ankle injury that ended his 2017 campaign. As he enters the second year of his rookie contract, Bacon will see an uphill battle to climb the depth chart for a second straight year. While the injury to Malik Monk (wrist ) will probably result in more playing time for him moving forward, it's doubtful that it'll move the needle much in relation to his prospects for the coming season.
Bacon had 22 points (8-16 FG, 1-2 3PT, 5-6 FT) and six rebounds in Sunday's summer league win over Miami.
Bacon also added three steals, though he did turn the ball over six times in 33 minutes. The Florida State product will likely serve as the Hornets' lead guard for the rest of summer league after Malik Monk suffered a broken hand over the weekend.
Bacon missed the last five regular season games as a result of an ankle injury. The Florida State Seminole will be entering the second year of his rookie contract and is set to make about $1.4 million.
