The Charlotte Hornets have closed the incorporation of players Jalen Crutcher and Cameron McGriff, as has announced the president of operations and general manager Mitch Kupchack.
Previously, the organization had released two holes in the roster with the termination of the agreements Exhibit 10 de D.J. Carton y Xavier Sneed. A modality that will also link the two new acquisitions in order to complete the preseason with the Hornets.
Crutcher played the Summer League in Las Vegas with the Milwaukee Bucks, averaging 5.3 points, 2.5 rebounds and 2.5 assists in four games. He previously completed his university stage in Dayton. His numbers as a senior rose to 17.6 points, 3.5 rebounds and 4.8 assists.
For his part, McGriff was already part of the Hornets squad during his summer stay in Las Vegas. During the 2020-21 season he wore the Belgian Okapi Aalst shirt of the recently inaugurated BNXT League, where he averaged 13.5 points and 5.0 rebounds in a total of 27 games.
The Hornets have 16 guaranteed contracts and their two dual positions covered, so it seems unlikely that the bond between the two players and the franchise will continue beyond the start of the new season.
