The Hornets acquired Hakim Warrick in a deal with the Suns and expect the seven-year veteran to play both forward positions for them this season.

“Whatever I can do to get out on the floor, they said I can play either position,” Warrick said. “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.”

Warrick has been participating in offseason workouts at the Hornets practice facility.

“I think it’s good that a lot of us have got down here early to a good start on things,” Warrick said. “We’re getting used to each other and seeing how we like to play and what we’re comfortable of doing.”
