Warrick told by Hornets he will "have the option to" play both forward positions
Warrick said the coaching staff has given him the option to play both forward position this upcoming season although his natural position is power forward. The Hornets acquired Warrick and center Robin Lopez in a July 27 trade from the Phoenix Suns.
Warrick: Whatever I can do to get out on the floor, they said I can play either position. Just being able to play multiple positions that’s something I’ve worked hard to improve my game and be able to play a few minutes at the three.
I also thought this quote was interesting:
Minutes at power forward could be hard to come by for Warrick because of projected starter Anthony Davis and top backups Ryan Anderson and Jason Smith. Anderson is expected to play some at small forward and Smith is likely to get some reserve minutes at center behind Lopez.
