CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) New name. New uniforms. And, most importantly, newfound confidence.
The Charlotte Hornets are looking to build off a successful 2013-14 campaign - and second-year coach Steve Clifford believes the organization has the pieces in place to do just that this season.
Clifford said with the additions of free agents Lance Stephenson and Marvin Williams the starting lineup is better than it was a year ago when Charlotte went 43-39 and made the playoffs before getting swept in the first round by the Miami Heat. He also believes the Hornets have more quality depth.
