Yesterday, we heard that the Hornets will sign Solomon Jones to a 10-day contract and that Eric Gordon underwent successful knee surgery. Today brings more news on the Hornets, so let's round it up right here….
- David Stern has reduced the list of potential buyers for the Hornets from about seven to two or three, writes J. Michael Falgoust of USA Today. The commissioner is optimistic about completing a sale by month's end.
- Following Gordon's surgery, coach Monty Williams said reports suggesting the 23-year-old doesn't want to play for the Hornets are "way off base," according to the Associated Press (via ESPN). Williams added that Gordon is "a big part of what we want to do and where we're going."
- The Hornets are making a mistake by not being more forthcoming with the team's fans, says John DeShazier of the New Orleans Times-Picayune.
- Italian team Novipiu Casale is eyeing Trey Johnson, according to a Sportando report. Johnson signed with Novipiu Casale but didn't play with the club due to an injury. Johnson returned to the NBA in December, appearing in 11 games with the Hornets before being waived late in January.
