For health reasons, the Hornets are kicking around the idea of bringing Stojakovic off the pine next season: “Last season, the Hornets was unable to get a precise update on Stojakovic’s back condition until he reported for camp. As part of the franchise’s revamped offseason procedures, Mark Cranston [Director of Athlete Performance and Rehabilitation] was able bring back detailed reports concerning Stojakovic’s back strength … There is a possibility Stojakovic may come off the bench this season to extend his career. He has the team’s highest contract at $14.2 million this season and $15.3 million in 2010-11.”
