George Shinn is not pleased with the way the young talent in N.O has been brought along: “We feel like a lot of our young people have not been developed properly. We feel there are other mistakes that have been made from the basketball end. We’ve totally changed, and we’ll hold people accountable. We’re holding coaches, and not just Byron Scott, but our assistants accountable. We’re holding (General Manager) Jeff Bower accountable. We expect to get better and develop our young people. When we moved Rasual Butler, the idea is with the young people we have at that position (including rookies Darren Collison and Marcus Thornton and ex-No. 1 pick Julian Wright) we want to develop these guys.”‘
