Charlotte Bobcats News – 2013 Bobcats Updates
In the final year of Bobcats history, owner Michael Jordan hopes for drastic improvement leading into a retro-inspired new era of Charlotte basketball. Now that the Pelicans inhabit New Orleans, Jordan will bring the Hornets name back to Charlotte starting with the 2014-15 season. After finishing next-to-last in the NBA last season in 2012-13, first-year coach Steve Clifford will be responsible for the maturation of the team’s young core. Former top-10 picks Kemba Walker, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, and Bismack Biyombo will need to prove they can be efficient, productive NBA players. Former Hoosier Cody Zeller, the #4 overall pick in the 2013 draft, will also need to play well to justify his high draft position. The free agent acquisition of forward Al Jefferson provides a solid low-post presence and veteran leadership for the young Bobcats.
