Zeller, after playing all 82 games in his rookie season, played just 62 in his sophomore campaign after a shoulder sprain he suffered from in early March cut his season short, but he still managed to show drastic improvements on both sides of the floor in 2014-15. Zeller finished the season with averages of 7.6 points and 5.8 rebounds in 24 minutes per game.
Williams was traded from the Timberwolves to the Hornets at the trade deadline in February and became an instant starter at point guard for Charlotte with Kemba Walker out with a knee injury. Williams had an up-and-down stint with Minnesota, but really started playing consistently well once he was with the Hornets and finished the season with averages of 14.2 points, 2.6 rebounds and 6.2 assists in 29 minutes in his 12th NBA season.
Vonlehís rookie season was infected with the injury bug, as in late August he suffered a sports hernia that required surgery and sidelined him for nearly two months. As a result, he missed a lot of the teamís preseason workouts and played sparingly throughout the season. In all, he appeared in just 25 games and averaged 3.3 points and 3.4 rebounds in 10 minutes.
Taylor started the season with a 24-game suspension following a domestic incident and then played in the D-League for a short stint before even officially joining the Hornets. At seasonís end, Taylor had played in just 29 games and finished with averages of 4.4 points and 1.8 rebounds in 15 minutes.
Stephenson was very disappointing in the first year of his new contract with the Hornets, playing in just 61 games and finishing with averages of 8.2 points, 4.5 rebounds and 3.3 assists in 26 minutes. He also shot a dreadful 17 percent from behind the arc and fell completely out of the rotation at times towards the end of the season.
Jefferson (knee) dealt with groin and knee injuries throughout the 2014-15 season, but still managed to play 65 games. His numbers, however, did take a dip as a result, as his average of 16.6 points per game is his lowest since the 2006-07 season, while he failed to average at least nine rebounds per game (8.4) for the first time since the 2005-06 season.
Hendersonís production dropped off a bit this season, as he posted averages of 12.1 points, 3.4 rebounds and 2.6 assists over 29 minutes per game. This was, however, Hendersonís healthiest season of his career, playing in a career-high 80 games and starting in 72 for the Hornets.
Hairston played in 45 games over the course of his rookie season, finding himself going in and out of the rotation throughout the year. At times, Hairston proved he could score in a pretty high volume, but he showed himself to be a fairly inefficient shooter, as he shot just 32 percent form the field and 30 percent from behind the arc. He finished the regular season with averages of 5.6 points and 2.0 rebounds over 15 minutes per game.
Biyombo was limited in his appearances on the floor in his fourth NBA season, but showed signs of promise when opportunities presented themselves. Despite playing the majority of the season as Al Jeffersonís backup, Biyombo put together averages of 4.8 points, 6.4 rebounds and 1.5 blocks in 64 games played. A variety of injuries left Biyombo out of 18 games this season, but none were ever serious enough to keep him out for an extended amount of time or have lasting impacts on his future.
