  • Hornets' PJ Washington: To spend time at center

    Hornets coach James Borrego said Tuesday that he plans to use Washington at center "a lot" this season, Hornets reporter Rod Boone reports.

    As a rookie, Washington spent most of his time at the 4, but he offers versatility and floor-spacing (37.4 percent 3PT) that the Hornets' other centers do not. For now, Washington is penciled in at the 4, with Cody Zeller at the 5, but Borrego indicated that Charlotte will do plenty of experimenting with smaller lineups. He also noted that Miles Bridges will likely shift up to power forward when Washington is at center.

  • Hornets' Vernon Carey: Reaches deal with Charlotte

    Carey agreed Monday with the Hornets on a four-year contract, Bobby Marks of ESPN.com reports.

    Carey becomes the fourth second-round pick in this year's draft to receive a contract longer than two years, joining Isaiah Joe (three years), Tre Jones (three years) and Xavier Tillman (four years). According to Marks, Carey's contract is expected to contain the most money of any second-round pick, an indication that the Hornets expect him to be a contributor as a rookie. The Hornets currently have experienced options in Cody Zeller and Bismack Biyombo on hand at center, but neither player represents a long-term solution for the rebuilding organization.

  • Hornets' Gordon Hayward: Officially signed-and-traded

    The Hornets and Celtics officially completed a sign-and-trade involving Hayward on Sunday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    The deal is somewhat of a formality after Hayward announced more than a week ago that he would sign with the Hornets in free agency. But making the transaction a sign-and-trade is a major benefit for the Celtics, who will receive a massive trade exception equal to Hayward's first-year salary with the Hornets. Boston will also trade a pair of future second-round picks to Charlotte, which will send a conditional future second-rounder back to Boston in exchange.

  • Hornets' Xavier Sneed: Signs on with Hornets

    Sneed agreed Monday with the Hornets on an Exhibit 10 contract, Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports reports.

    Sneed, a 6-foot-5 forward from Kansas State, will likely begin his professional career with the Hornets' G League affiliate, the Greensboro Swarm.

  • Hornets' Bismack Biyombo: Re-ups with Charlotte

    Biyombo agreed Sunday to re-sign with the Hornets, Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports reports.

    After signing a four-year, $72 million contract with the Magic in the summer of 2016, Biyombo quickly proved to be a bust and found himself traded to Charlotte two years later. Despite having to foot the bill on his massive salary the past two years, Charlotte apparently wasn't deterred from keeping Biyombo on what's presumably a short-term deal that's much more team friendly. Biyombo should fill a depth role at center in 2020-21 after averaging 7.4 points, 5.8 rebounds and 0.9 blocks in 19.4 minutes per game over his 53 appearances last season.

  • Hornets' Javin DeLaurier: Signs Exhibit 10 with Charlotte

    DeLaurier signed an Exhibit 10 contract with the Hornets on Saturday, Vincent Goodwill of Yahoo Sports reports.

    DeLaurier was a team captain during his time at Duke but was a minor contributor on the court. The 22-year-old averaged 3.5 points and 3.5 rebounds in 13.2 minutes during his senior season.

  • Hornets' Kahlil Whitney: Lands in Charlotte

    Whitney signed a two-way contract with the Hornets, freelance journalist Adam Zagoria reports.

    The 19-year-old left Kentucky in January and opted to forgo his final three seasons of collegiate eligibility, but he went unselected during Wednesday's draft. Whitney averaged only 12.8 minutes in his 18 college games, but he's a blue-chip recruit with plenty of potential and should spend most of his time with the Greensboro Swarm in the G League.

  • Hornets' Gordon Hayward: Signs with Hornets

    Hayward has signed a four-year, $120 million contract with the Hornets, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    This is a massive deal for Hayward, who turned down his $34 million player option with the Celtics two days prior. There seemed to be some traction for a potential sign-and-trade with the Pacers that would have sent Hayward home to Indiana, but that never came to fruition. Now, Hayward joins the Hornets as the best player on the team. He should take control of a bigger chunk of the offense than he did in Boston, and it's possible we see him return to the kind of production that made him an All-Star in Utah during the 2016-17 campaign. That season, he ranked 33rd in fantasy on a per-game basis while averaging 21.9 points, 5.4 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 1.0 steals.
