Power Forward

1. Miles Bridges

With what Coach Borrego said about Bridges during Summer League this year, he is expected to see a lot of time as the starting power forward. Bridges had a stellar rookie year last year, and he even managed to earn a spot in the league’s Dunk Contest.

He took his game to another level during Summer League this year, and he managed to average 13.3 points and 6.5 rebounds per game. During Summer League, it was easy to tell that Bridges worked on his three-point game.

Bridges is without a doubt undersized to play this position, but he plays with a lot of force on offense, and he can be a weapon on the glass. I’m ready to see some more of his famous putback dunks.

2. Marvin Williams

If Williams is not traded before the season, then I see him playing a significant role for Charlotte off the bench. Williams was recently labeled as the team’s “most likely” veteran to be traded.

Williams was a force from beyond the arc last season, but a lot of his play was inconsistent. I love him as a player, but there is no way that he beats out Bridges for the starting role.

3. PJ Washington

This prediction for Washington was tricky, as he is expected to play both forward positions. The Hornets took Washington in the lottery this year, and he is expected to spend a decent amount of time in the G-League this year.

PJ Washington is a little undersized to play power forward, but he did well with his role last year with Kentucky. In his final season in college, Washington managed to average 15.2 points and 7.5 rebounds.

If Marvin Williams gets traded this season, then I expect him to get a decent amount of playing time. He has a lot to work on, but I think he will flourish under Coach Borrego.
