For Miles Bridges and Terry Rozier, there’s not much on the line. They are the two cornerstones of the franchise and will be given all the tools to be successful. As long as they buy in and improve along the way, they don’t much to worry about, other than getting this team back to the playoffs in the future.

Bridges is looking like a breakout candidate going into his second season, and Rozier looks like one as well now that he is a starter. Both players are going to receive significant playing time as the Hornets hope to develop both of them into stars. Many have very high expectations for this duo.

If Bridges can continue to make strides on the offensive end, then he has a chance to be a special talent. He’s a very good defender already and a special athlete. His shooting and creating need work, but they both looked much improved during Summer League play. Hornets fans are excited for this man, and you can see why.

Rozier has played behind both Kyrie Irving and Isaiah Thomas in Boston, but will finally have the keys all to himself. He’s going to have a ton of shots coming his way, and he’s okay with that. He could flirt with 20 points per game during his first season in Charlotte. Let’s just hope he can improve his efficiency.

These are two bright spots for the Charlotte Hornets, and their development will be a top priority. The expectations are high, but the pressure isn’t as high. Let’s see what they can do with an increased role moving forward.
