Sunday basketball notes

In NBA lottery, was the ‘fix’ in for the Hornets?

In New Orleans, it’s called a renaissance, a second opportunity to build a winner after difficult times in the Big Easy. In other cities, such as Charlotte and Washington, it’s being called “a fix,’’ as those teams missed out on the opportunity to draft Anthony Davis.

The Hornets have lived well the past few months. After being on the market for months with no serious buyer, they were saved when New Orleans Saints owner Tom Benson stepped in. And last week, the Hornets won the draft lottery - defying greater odds than finding some peace and quiet during Mardi Gras.
