Charlotte Hornets’ top draft picks have brutal debuts

It was a brutal start Friday for the two players the Charlotte Hornets selected in the NBA draft first round last month. Noah Vonleh, the Indiana power forward chosen ninth, went 1-of-12 from the field in the Hornets’ 70-58 opening-game loss to the Golden State Warriors at the Las Vegas Summer League. P.J. Hairston, chosen 26th after playing at North Carolina and in the development league, shot 2-of-16 for seven points.
