Hornets: Only two positions – center and point guard – seem to have locked-in starters. Al Jefferson and Kemba Walker are so clearly better than their backups that it’s hard to imagine a shakeup. Small forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist figures to continue as a starter, but Jeff Taylor used his rehab time from a ruptured Achilles tendon to strengthen his upper body. He looks like a linebacker now, and he seems hungry to have an impact. The other two spots look wide-open. Charlotte Observer
With Josh McRoberts gone to Miami, second-year pro Cody Zeller and free-agent signing Marvin Williams will face off to be the starter at power forward. Stephenson would seemingly have the edge to start at shooting guard, but Henderson has had that spot the last couple of seasons and won’t give it up without resistance. Charlotte Observer
