The local paper did a review of the Hornet's players. As Byron Scott has said there are only 7-9 players from this season's team he wants to keep, the paper has done a breakdown of who has what chances of staying. Here is what they had to say about Brandon Bass. Vitals: F, 6-8, 240, Years pro: Rookie 2005-06 Averages: 2.0 ppg, 2.1 rpg, 0.1 apg, 8.3 mpg Contract: Hornets have option to keep Bass one more year and pay him roughly $660,000 next season. The Good: Bass is explosive. Strong and athletic enough to rebound and block shots. And he can finish with strong dunks or step outside and hit 15- to 17-foot jump shots. The Bad: Young and inexperienced. Bass turned pro after his sophmore year at LSU and can't legally drink until April 30. Point being, there's a lot he has to learn about basketball. And at 6-8, he's an undersized power forward. Outlook: The Hornets are high on Bass, his work ethic and his passion. Bass has shown enough potential in one season to draw comparisons to the Detroit Pistons' Ben Wallace from Hornets brass. They'd like to see Bass blossom into Wallace's All-Star caliber with their organization. Chance of Returning: Good. This summer will be huge for Bass, though. He must show improvement while playing on the team's summer league roster in Las Vegas.
