After bouncing around the G-League last year, Marcus Paige has returned to the state that he called home throughout his college years.

Paige has agreed to a two-way deal with the Charlotte Hornets that will allow him to play for both the G-League team, the Greensboro Swarm, as well as be called up to the official NBA roster for as much as 45 days.

LMAOOOO

Why is this funny?  Let the man live.  It's a win/win.  It's not like they're spending a ton of money on him.

the only good thing about this is that it is a cheap deal.. if I am wrong I will eat my hat - but Paige will contribute nothing to the team this year.. like zero, nuthin, nada, bupkiss.. just because "we don't know how good he'll be.." doen't mean he is a better prospect than guys that "we know what they will provide".. sometimes the known stagnant/commodity is better than the mystical unknown..

Here are 8 PGs I know would at least be able to provide either some vet leadership and/or some solid minutes if we are in a bind with Kemba/MCW hurt for a stretch of time..

I would rather have Trey Burke.  The rest are pretty washed man.  And meh, Paige isn't going to get any PT regardless.  Unless injuries happen to Kemba or MKW.  And, he's not getting paid poo.  So, I wouldn't worry about it.

Hornets are working with no cap.  They're pretty much done signing average-good players.  Expect a few more signings like this.

They had somewhere in the 2-3 mil range after they let Weber go.. they could have freed up 1.5 mil more by letting O'Bryant go.. but they didn't..

$4 - $4.5 mil would have been nice.. but we still have enough for a vet min contract for sure..

anyways - guys like Mo Speights and Afflalo were signed for vet min deals just a week or so ago.. seems like we Aren't interested in stacking talent for THIS year.. we must be comfortable enough knowing we will make the playoffs with this squad and that is enough..

I don't follow the NBA as close as most people here, but wtf happened to Ty Lawson? Wasn't he like a mid-tier PG for Denver?
