Hornets future unclear with 4 starters becoming free agents

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) The Charlotte Hornets have a major decision ahead of them this offseason - keep the core group from a team that tied for the third-best record in the Eastern Conference or revamp the roster by adding new pieces.

With four starters set to become free agents and only seven players under contract next season, the Hornets have the flexibility to make major changes if they so choose.

Coach Steve Clifford said Monday he'd prefer to coach the same group again, but acknowledged it might be difficult to re-sign everyone given the NBA salary cap.
