Weber spent the majority of the 2016-17 campaign backing up starting Hornets point guard Kemba Walker after reserve guard Ramon Sessions went down with a knee injury. In 13 appearances with Charlotte, Weber posted 3.8 points, 1.7 boards and 1.2 assists across 12.2 minutes per game. The exact details of the contract haven't been released, though it seems safe to assume that the deal is largely a training camp invite and could end up with Weber joining the Lakers' G-League affiliate if he can't make the NBA squad.
Weber was waived by the Hornets on Friday, Rick Bonnell of The Charlotte Observer reports.
Weber started the 2016-17 campaign as a member of the Warriors, bouncing between the NBA and the D-League before ultimately being let go. After being picked up by the Hornets in late February, Weber saw most of his minutes after reserve point guard Ramon Sessions tore his meniscus. As a result, Weber stepped into a backup role behind starter Kemba Walker. In his 13 appearances with the team, the 6-foot-2 guard posted 3.8 points, 1.7 rebounds and 1.2 assists across 12.2 minutes per game.
Weber, who's nearing the end of his second 10-day contract, has provided the Hornets with energy and a defensive boost off the bench. While he's coupled with Brian Roberts to serve as the team's point guard depth as of late, veteran Ramon Sessions (knee) is nearing a return and there simply may not be the opportunity for Weber to garner anything more than residual minutes down the stretch.
Weber has seen action in just one game for the Hornets since joining the team on his first 10-day contract at the end of February, posing two points over two minutes during that contest. Despite being relegated to the bench for the majority of his stay, coach Steven Clifford likes what he's gotten from Weber and will give him one more 10-day deal before deciding whether or not to sign him for the rest of the season. The Hornets continue to be without Ramon Sessions (knee) at point guard, so Weber should slot in as the team's third string point guard behind Kemba Walker and Brian Roberts for the time being.
Weber recently finished off two 10-day contracts with the Warriors, with whom he made seven appearances, but the team wasn't willing to commit to him for the rest of the season. The Hornets will have more of a need for Weber, as Ramon Sessions (knee) is still out for the foreseeable future. Look for Weber to fight with Brian Roberts for the main backup role behind starter Kemba Walker.
