Forte said the workout with the Hornets was his best yet, and the Charlotte
brass seemed pleased. Silas and Bass both said they projected Forte to play his
college position, shooting guard, rather than convert him to point guard, as
some have suggested. They said they were surprised at how quickly Forte released
"You see him play in a college game, and you make some judgments," Bass said.
"But I was really impressed with his release in the workout. He's got the
quickest release on his shot. That shot's just gone. As soon as it hits his
hand, it's gone.
"He doesn't jump as high as some other guys. But he finishes well around the
basket. He's got that mid-range game where he'll beat you off the dribble, but
he won't take it all the way in. He'll pull up and jump shoot -- and that's
really difficult to defend because the big guys can't get to him."
