The Charlotte Hornets announced their roster for the 2016 Orlando Summer League this morning, and it will only feature one current Hornets player. With Frank Kaminsky out six weeks, Aaron Harrison will be the only member of the Hornets featured on the roster. Here's the full roster, along with the college they attended:

  • Wayne Blackshear - Louisville
  • John Brown - High Point
  • Ramon Galloway - LaSalle
  • Aaron Harrison - Kentucky
  • Goodluck Okonoboh
  • Brandon Paul - Illinois
  • Tim Quarterman - LSU
  • DeShaun Thomas - Ohio State
  • Mike Tobey - Virginia
  • Joseph Uchebo - UNC-Charlotte
  • Gabe York - Arizona
Harrison is clearly the most significant name on the roster. After making last summer's OSL roster, his play impressed the staff and front office enough that he was offered a two-year contract. While he used last summer to make the Hornets roster, this summer will be his opportunity to show how much progress he's made since a year ago. Depending on how well he plays could factor in to how much time he spends with the Greensboro Swarm this fall.

Among the rest of the roster, John Brown will be a player to watch. He's long, athletic, and plays with a ton of energy, and as Joshua Priemski noted in his profile of him, could provide a veteran presence for the roster at 24 years old. Brown should be among the starters, and depending on how well he plays, has a shot at making the roster, or at the very least, a training camp invite.

Tim Quarterman is another intriguing prospect. At 6-6, he's a tall guard that averaged 11.2 points, 4.6 assists, and 3.6 rebounds per game during his junior season at LSU. Mike Tobey is a 6-10 forward from Virginia, and DeShaun Thomas was a 2nd round pick by the San Antonio Spurs in 2013, and has played for FC Barcalona and the Austin Spurs.

Goodluck Okonoboh, aside from having the most interesting name on the roster, was a highly touted high school player who started for UNLV as a freshman but decided to leave mid-way through his sophomore season after he saw diminished playing time, but then never transferred to another school. He declared for the draft in April, and went undrafted, which will make ORL his first opportunity in months to show what he is capable as a player.

The Orlando Summer League starts July 2nd, and runs through the 8th. The Hornets' first game is July 2nd at 11a.m.
