Entering Day 5 of training camp, the Hornets have 5 players under contract. One of them is Chris Paul, whose trade uncertainty has become a major distraction for the team.

Monty Williams knows this better than anybody. Despite a solid season in year one, the distraction of Paul’s trade status coupled with the NBA’s unforgivable act, has Williams in a nearly impossible situation.
