Paige was not extended a qualifying offer from the Hornets and will become an unrestricted free agent.
Paige appeared in just five games with Charlotte last season as part of his two-way contract with the team, as he spent most of his rookie season with the Greensboro Swarm of the G League. In 46 G League outings, Paige averaged 15.2 points and 4.5 assists per game, and it appears his best chance of making an NBA roster again next season is on another two-way deal.
Paige was part of the Hornets' G League team for most of the season but earned the call-up occasionally. The former UNC star had his best game on Mar. 22 when he dropped nine points on the Grizzlies. Paige will most likely sign with a G League team in time for next season, although it won't be surprising if he lands a two-way contract with an NBA team.
Paige was recalled from the G-League's Greensboro Swarm on Thursday.
Paige has spent majority of the season in Greensboro, having made just one appearance of three minutes for the Hornets this year. Despite being called up, Paige will likely remain a deep bench option for the team's game against the Grizzlies on Thursday night.
Paige provided 33 points (9-18 FG, 6-11 3Pt, 9-10 FT), four rebounds, four steals and four assists during Friday's 124-122 loss to Delaware.
This was a new season high in points for Paige as he benefited from the fact that Greensboro star Damien Wilkins (oral surgery) was inactive Friday. The former North Carolina star has been a key piece to Greensboro's offense, as he is averaging 15.2 points and 4.5 assists per game this season.
