Marcus Thornton motivated to face Hornets

From Jimmy Smith/Times Picayune:

"It’s not personal (with New Orleans), I’m trying to beat every team that we play. But it feels good against a New Orleans team. I looked over there a couple of times."

Dell Demps scouting college games

From Janie McCauley/Associated Press:

Demps attended the Hornets’ 93-78 home loss to Phoenix on Friday night, then left home at 4:30 a.m. Saturday for the Bay Area. He arrived in time to have breakfast with his parents then attend the UCLA-California afternoon game to do some scouting. He planned a late lunch with sister, Darrell, before meeting up with the Hornets in Sacramento ahead of their Sunday game against the Kings. Then, it was off to Utah for New Orleans’ game against the Jazz.

In a week’s span, Demps will have hit five states. The Hornets opened in Arizona against the Suns on Dec. 26, and Demps traveled to Seattle on Thursday to see Oregon State at Washington. He took a redeye flight back to Louisiana for Friday’s game before heading out of town again.

"That’s part of it. That’s part of the calmness," Demps said of his hectic travel schedule. "This is normal. For me it’s fun. I’m having a blast and getting to do something I love. I get to watch basketball and I feel I’m lucky."
