It was just reported that the Hornets signed Michael Washington for the training camp. I think its a great way to beef up the frontcourt. I checked out what draftexpress had to say and they were raving about his physicality and that he seems to be a true speciman. With 6'10'' and a mean streak he could be a good 3rd PF and really help with the defense.
It really creats competition during training camp. Three players have to be cut and I have the feeling that all players in camp are at least serviceable. It is such a different approach this year than all the other years before. Competition and the unknown of whether you make the team or not. Those on the verge of being cut will not only push the others with unguaranteed contracts but the established guys as well. I hope it shows on the court and lights some fire under the team.
