Hilton gets 4th year

The Hornets have given Hilton a guaranteed 4th year (2009-2010) and Julian Wright a 3rd year (2009-2010).

Hollinger: Chris Paul will be Better

John Hollinger's player projection rankings are out, where he projects the 2008-2009 PER for every player in the NBA. And while he may not have shown much love for the Hornets in general, he predicts that Chris Paul will be the best player in the league. I did a double take when I saw the figure he's projecting- 30.13. Seriously, 30.13. LeBron James led the league in PER last year with a 29.3 figure. The only players to hit 30 in NBA history: Tracy McGrady (his mind-boggling 2002), Shaquille O'Neal, David Robinson, Wilt Chamberlain, and Michael Jordan. The closest a point gaurd has ever come to the 30 PER plateau: Chris Paul last year with a 28.3 figure.
