JP--Hornets down to 14

Postby SC in DC » Wed Jul 04, 2018 11:25 am

Cut summer league roster.

If the coaches can find some minutes for others on the summer roster, fine, but that‘s way down the agenda when the team starts playing games Friday in Las Vegas.

“If I can get (the non-contract) players minutes, I’ll get them minutes, but our core guys are going to play," Borrego said. "This is a big two weeks for them. We want them getting heavy minutes, getting comfortable in our system, in your style.”

It figures that the starting backcourt will be Monk and Graham, with Bacon and Bridges at the forwards and Hernangomez at center. Arnoldas Kulboka, drafted 55th by the Hornets but under contract in Italy, and J.P. Macura, an undrafted rookie from Xavier signed to a two-way contract, also figure to get extra consideration.

In the print version they went on to quote JP---and you can tell he's an X grad with an amazing education!! "It's a lot different from college. You need to pick up the terminology and apply it to games." Insightful--no?

Also, the print article had some more about his college career and X. "Xavier has been a strong program of late in the Big East..He's a really competitive kid. (duh!) He can shoot the ball, he can put the ball on the floor, he's been a winner, said Hornet;s coach James Borrego. He's won at a high level-someone we respect on both sides of the ball"
