    For all of Hornets fans this summer has been wild, crazy and probably nothing short of what anyone expected.

That didn’t change this summer. The Hornets moved […]

    The Hornets plan to sign combo-guard Elliot Williams to a non-guaranteed training camp contract, according to Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer.

    Former UNC Tar Heel Tyler Hansbrough has agreed to a contract with the Hornets, reports The Charlotte Observer. Though terms of the deal haven’t been made public, a one-year, veteran minimum contract seems like the most likely possibility.

  • Hornets select Frank Kaminsky 9th overall

    By Spencer Percy on June 25, 2015
    The rumors started floating yesterday about the Hornets being hot for Frank Kaminsky. Instead of Cody Zeller being moved to Portland, which was likely Cho’s first wish, it was Vonleh instead. Irregardless, the Hornets became a little thinner in the frontcourt and they shored that up by drafting Kaminsky tonight at 9th overall. Now the team has five players in […]
