(Hornets coach Steve) Clifford is integrating (Lance) Stephenson carefully. He will start Stephenson, certainly, but the Hornets’ primary two offensive weapons won’t change. Al Jefferson and Kemba Walker remain the team’s purest threats to score.

“I think people are going to have to be patient with him,” Clifford said of Stephenson. “You can see his talent and his ability and he wants to do well … He’s a good, good player. But he averaged 13 a game last year. This isn’t a guy who for eight years scored 22 a night.”
