The Hornets have fired Byron Scott and have hired Tim Floyd as an assistant coach. The Hornets GM will take over coaching duties as of today. Scott has had a pretty up and down stop with the Hornets. He was Coach of the Year a few years ago and his team took the San Antonio Spurs to 7 games before bowing out. Since then, the team hasn't responded. They traded Tyson Chandler for Emeka Okafor and they really don't have much else. Peja isn't what he used to be, David West is finally starting to wear down from being an undersized PF, Morris Peterson and James Pose both are on their last legs, and the bench is nothing to talk about.
