Hornets sign Caleb Martin to three year deal

He signed a two-way contract earlier, but that was quickly changed to a full NBA contract.

Just hours after the Charlotte Hornets announced that they had converted Caleb Martin's contract to a two-way deal, the team signed him to a full NBA contract.

Rod Boone of The Athletic reported that this was in the works earlier. Apparently the conversion to a two-way contract was a necessary procedural move to make this move possible.

The deal is partially guaranteed, but no word on the specifics. The guaranteed portion means the Hornets will likely go through the entire 2019-20 season with identical twins Caleb and Cody on the roster. We can only hope they get ample minutes together to confuse opposing teams and broadcasters.

Caleb Martin's elevation to the 15 man roster opens one of the Hornets two-way contracts. Guard Kobi Simmons and second round pick Jalen McDaniels are the most likely candidates to get the second two-way deal, with McDaniels the front-runner due to his draft status.
