CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Bobcats first-year coach Steve Clifford says he hopes the addition of veteran center Al Jefferson and the continued development of what he considers "a competitive core of young players" will help change a losing culture in Charlotte and restore the franchise to a competitive level.
How soon that will be is up to how quickly the players mesh together.
The Bobcats are 28-120 over the past two seasons, the worst record in the NBA. But Clifford says better times are ahead for Charlotte.
Clifford says of Jefferson, "I think we have a better player at the top of the roster, which is where it all starts. There are five guys on the floor and it always starts with which team has the best player on the floor."
