Bacon was selected by the Hornets with the 40th overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft and has impressed throughout the Orlando Summer League, which earns him a spot on the team's regular-season roster. The deal reportedly includes a guaranteed contract for the next two years, with a partial in the third year, so he should enter the season on the 15-man active roster. That said, there's still plenty of bodies ahead of him on the depth chart in the backcourt, so it's unlikely he'll play a huge role during his rookie campaign.
