Michael Kidd-Gilchrist is Price’s Project?
(Mark) Price has worked with several NBA teams, either as a coach or a consultant, to address various players’ shooting problems. He’s been credited with helping Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo, who entered the league out of Kentucky with virtually no jump shot. Rondo is now one of the NBA’s top point guards.
Price’s biggest project could be second-year small forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, whom the Bobcats drafted second overall a year ago. Kidd-Gilchrist arrived in Charlotte with both a hitch and a sidespin to his jump shot. He has no 3-point range to speak of (2-of-9 as a rookie).
