All Hornets Season in Reviews

Tipping Off
A crazy season for Troy Daniels ultimately landed him in Charlotte as the second-year shooting guard spent time with both the Houston Rockets and Minnesota Timberwolves prior to joining the Hornets before the trade deadline in February. Although sparingly used by Charlotte prior to the end of the season, Daniels emerged as a legitimate threat from behind the 3-point arc who has the potential to factor into a Hornets rotation, which is desperate for 3-point shooting, long term.

April Opportunity
After making appearances in just three games for the Hornets during February and March, Daniels took advantage of an injury-crippled rotation in April when he saw action in seven of Charlotte’s final nine games. Daniels best stretch of play game came in the final week of the season when he either set or matched his season high for points three times in a four-game span. His best outing came in the final game of the season on April 15 against Toronto when he led the Hornets with a career-high 24 points on 6-of-13 shooting from 3-point range.

2015-16 Outlook
In 11 games with the Hornets this season, Daniels averaged 7.0 points while shooting 45.8 percent from the field (27-of-59) and 47.2 percent from three-point range (17-of-36). He’ll be back with the Hornets next season and is also expected to join the Hornets in 2015 Orlando Summer League as he looks to take his game to the next level.
“The key for Troy is going to be as much as anything his physical development,” said Head Coach Steve Clifford. “I think strength gain and added weight in the summer will be the key to him on both ends of the floor. He can shoot the ball with range. He has a good feel for how to play and right now, in order to take advantage of the skills that he has worked on, he needs to get stronger.”
