While New Orleans Hornets Coach Monty Williams continues to wait, he said the starting small forward spot remains up for grabs with four games remaining before the regular-season opener Oct .31 against the San Antonio Spurs.
If Aminu sputters, Hornets rookie Darius Miller could emerge as a surprise starter. Miller, who was a teammate of No. 1 overall pick Anthony Davis at Kentucky where they won a national championship last season, appears to be catching on quickly. Williams said after Tuesday’s practice that Miller, a second-round pick, has shown a lot of signs he can make plays off the dribble.
