Hornets To Retain Williams, Demps

While New Orleans Saints owner Tom Benson will certainly make some changes to the Hornets organization, it seems that he will be keeping his coach and general manager.  Benson plans to keep Monty Williams as coach and Dell Demps as general manager, a league source told John Reid of The Times Picayune.  Both Williams and Demps were hired by the Hornets in 2010.

With the ownership situation resolved, the Hornets may now have a better chance of keeping forward Carl Landry in the fold.  Landry said that he agreed to only a one-year deal last year because of the ownership uncertainty but will now look at committing to the Hornets long term.

"Being a free agent again this summer, the Hornets are a team I’ve been with the last two years and have grown accustomed to. And with the owner now, that definitely will help with re-signing with the team.”

Landry signed a one-year, $9MM deal with New Orleans this offseason.
