The Charlotte Hornets (formerly Bobcats) made the playoffs in 2013-14 for the first time in three seasons and were promptly swept in the first round by the Miami Heat

The team lost free agent forward Josh McRoberts when he signed a four-year, $23 million deal with the Heat, but All-NBA selection Al Jefferson returns for his second season in Charlotte.

The summer league roster features rookie guard P.J. Hairston and forward Cody Zeller, who averaged six points and 4.3 rebounds while playing in all 82 games last season.
