The fight to be the Charlotte Bobcats' starting point guard next season will be one of the most competitive on the team, with incumbent D.J. Augustin trying to fend off rookie Kemba Walker.

But coach Paul Silas brought up an interesting point Wednesday, wondering aloud if the two undersized point guards could play alongside each other during some stretches of a game.

"Can these two guys play together?" Silas asked. "I'm not sure about that right now ... If they do, I'm sure we're going to have to do something other than play a man-to-man (defense), so we're going to have to figure all that out. If we can figure out how they play together defensively, we're going to have a real plus on offense with their running ability and quickness and so forth."
