Dan wrote a couple weeks ago that recent Pistons second round picks DaJuan Summers and Terrico White were in Hornets camp. Summers made the cut while White did not.
Good for Summers, who was by all reports a professional, good guy in an often toxic locker room last season. He played briefly overseas, but didn’t have a good experience in Italy. He didn’t play in the Hornets’ first game, but might get a shot some time this season as that team finds its post-Chris Paul identity.
White, on the other hand, was among those cut in Hornets camp. His athletic skills have never been a question, but White is trapped in a point guard’s body and couldn’t even be described as a true point guard in college. He could still develop some needed refinement overseas or in the D-League. If he was going to make a NBA roster, the Hornets would’ve been among his best bets. Currently, there point guard options behind Jarrett Jack are less than stellar post-Paul.
