Bobcats, Mark Price Focus on Shooting Woes

Over a 12-season NBA career, Mark Price had one of the best shots in the NBA and one of the best commands of the pick-and-roll, the foundation of most pro offenses.
The Charlotte Bobcats need to fix Michael Kidd-Gilchrist’s jump shot and refine Kemba Walker’s choices in pick-and-roll sets. Enter Price.
When new-assistant Price wasn’t working on Kidd-Gilchrist’s shot technique this week, he was probably at the other end of the practice gym, teaching Walker a floater that could make him more effective driving off the pick.
New head coach Steve Clifford hired Price as an assistant, after Price had worked with several teams in more of a player development/shot doctor capacity. He’s jumped quickly into the mix as the Bobcats prepare for their first Las Vegas summer league game Friday (10 p.m., versus the San Antonio Spurs on NBATV.)
“He’s been through it. I know I have the opportunity to learn from him,’’ Walker said of Price. “We were talking about trying to get guys off-balance – going up with the floater rather than (always) going all the way to the basket.’’
