Former Kentucky star Aaron Harrison had 11 points, six rebounds and four assists to help Charlotte earn its first summer league win in Orlando. The Hornets (1-2) defeated the Nets 64-55 on Tuesday afternoon.
"We just played great as a team today," said Harrison, who continued his transition from shooting guard in college to point guard in the pros.
"Especially at the best level in basketball, it's really difficult," Harrison said of the switch. "But there's just things you've got to go through. I'm just trying to get in where I fit in. Coaches want me to play the point guard, I'll play the point guard.
"I think I'm progressing at it, getting better every day."
Never miss a local story.
Harrison also contributed three steals and a pair of blocked shots.
"I need to do that to be on the floor, play defense and get hustle plays. ... and I enjoy doing that as well."
Hornets associate head coach Patrick Ewing, who is running the team's summer league squad, has been tough with his critiques of all of his players so far.
But he complimented Harrison's performance after Tuesday's game.
"I think he's doing a fantastic job," Ewing said. "He's running the ball club, he's taking his shots when he has to and he's also sharing it with other guys on the team.
"He's playing a little bit out of position because he's more of a two guard, but I think in order for him to make an NBA roster that's the position he's going to have to play — the point."
