2014 NBA Draft: Hornets get A for landing P.J. Hairston in a trade at No. 26
With the No. 26 pick in the 2014 NBA Draft, the Hornets selected P.J. Hairston, formerly of North Carolina and the NBA D-League.
The Charlotte Hornets selected former North Carolina guard P.J. Hairston with the No. 26 pick in the 2014 NBA Draft. They traded the No. 24 pick, Shabazz Napier, to the Miami Heat in exchange for this pick, the No. 55 pick and a future second rounder.
The 6-6, 220-pound Hairston averaged 14.6 points in 2012-13 for North Carolina, but was suspended for 2013-14 amid an NCAA and UNC investigation into impermissible benefits for the player.
Hairston subsequently played for the Texas Legends of the NBA's Developmental League, averaging 21.8 points per game in his first professional action. He is the first player to be selected in the first round of the draft out of the D-League.

It's likely that Hairston would have been selected earlier if not for the off-court trouble. He should be able to contribute quickly.
