The Charlotte Hornets got the steal of the draft as they picked Kentucky guard Malik Monk with the 11th pick in the NBA Draft. Some consider the 6 foot 3 shooting guard the best shooter in the draft and he is a very explosive scorer. In his only season at Kentucky, Monk scored 19 points per game and leaves Big Blue as the all time leading freshman scorer. He set a Kentucky freshman record for scoring in a single game when he scored 47 against North Carolina back in December.
In my opinion, the pick tonight for the Charlotte Hornets should be Kentucky guard Malik Monk. Monk is one of the best shooters in this draft and an explosive scorer. Any questions about that, check the tape from Kentucky's December game with North Carolina when Monk went off for 47 points including the game winning 3 pointer. He finished the season averaging 19 points per game and shot nearly 40% from 3 point land. This team passed on Devin Booker back in 2015.
I give the Charlotte Hornets trade for Dwight Howard an A++. I would give it more pluses but you get the picture. Why would I give it that grade? The Hornets were able to get rid of the worst contract in the NBA in Miles Plumlee. For the next 3 years, the Atlanta Hawks now have the honor of paying Plumlee $12.5 each year. Last season, Plumlee averaged 2 points and 2 rebounds and for his career, he is averaging 5 points and 4 rebounds. That's a HUGE WIN all by itself for the Charlotte Hornets.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
