Martin signed a three-year, partially guaranteed contract with the Hornets on Saturday, Rod Boone of The Athletic reports. Martin had his contract converted into a two-way deal earlier Saturday, but that was apparently just a procedural move leading into the three-year deal.

Martin built off of Sunday's impressive preseason debut, scoring 14 points and leading the Hornets with a plus-19 net rating. He's produced averages 13.5 points, 3.5 rebounds and 2.0 assists in 20.5 minutes over two preseason games. While the counting stats aren't overly impressive, Martin has impressed with his steadiness and efficiency and is building a strong case to make it through final roster cuts.
