Walker, Bobcats Encouraged By Summer League Showing
Kemba Walker averaged 15.8 points and a league-high 5.8 assists in five Summer League games with the Bobcats.
"This was a great week for me to get used to coach (Mike) Dunlap's system and play with these guys," Walker said. "It was tough going through all the losing we did last year, and I never want to experience that again. So it was important for all of us to come here to Vegas and play well and get some confidence going into training camp."
The Bobcats went 4-1 and had some success installing Dunlap’s scheme of heavy ball-pressure.
Charlotte led the summer league in turnovers forced with 111.
"I thought this was an extremely important week for us, especially with a new coach," general manager Rich Cho said. "We're trying to change the culture of our franchise, and I thought Coach Dunlap did a great job of setting the tone and getting our players to play hard at both ends of the court."
