Charlotte Bobcats Hiring Mark Price as Shooting Specialist

by June 20, 2013

The great Mark Price will soon be tasked with teaching the Charlotte Bobcats how to shoot. Price is set to join the Bobcats‘ coaching staff. Per the Charlotte Observer: “The Charlotte Bobcats are in the process of hiring former Georgia Tech and Cleveland Cavaliers star Mark Price as an assistant coach, in part to improve the team’s overall shooting. Price shot 90 percent from the foul line and 40 percent from 3-point range over his 12-season NBA career. He’ll join Steve Clifford’s new staff, which also includes Hall of Fame center Patrick Ewing. Since retiring as a player, Price has worked for several NBA teams, either as a coach or consultant, to address players’ shooting – Denver, Memphis and the Golden State Warriors. […] Rookie Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, who struggled as an outside shooter last season, specifically requested the team hire a shooting coach at the season’s conclusion. Price could also be helpful to center Bismack Biyombo, who truggles to have any shooting range.”
