Hornets sign Jalen McDaniels to three year contract, convert Kobi Simmons to two-way

They keep doing this and it’s confusing.

NBA: Preseason-Detroit Pistons at Charlotte Hornets Jeremy Brevard-USA TODAY Sports

Just when you thought everything was figured out. The Charlotte Hornets have converted Jalen McDaniels two-way contract into a full, three year, partially guaranteed contract. They proceeded to sign Kobi Simmons with the vacant two-way contract.

It’s probably the same deal the Hornets inked Caleb Martin to on Saturday.

So all these transactions have made for a mess of reporting. Here’s what the Hornets have done over the last few days:

  • Waived Ahmed Hill to open up a two-way contract slot
  • Converted Caleb Martin’s Exhibit 10 deal to a two-way deal, then converted the two-way deal to a partially guaranteed, three year NBA deal (The conversion to a two-way deal was a necessary step to make the Exhibit 10 deal a full NBA contract).
  • The Hornets used the same process to elevate Jalen McDaniels from Exhibit 10 to two-way to NBA contract.
  • The Hornets signed Kobi Simmons to a two-way contract.

Now here’s the Hornets 15 man roster, for real this time:

Guards: Terry Rozier, Devonte’ Graham, Malik Monk

Wings: Dwayne Bacon, Nicolas Batum, Cody Martin, Caleb Martin

Forwards: Miles Bridges, PJ Washington, Marvin Williams, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Jalen McDaniels

Bigs: Cody Zeller, Willy Hernangomez, Bismack Biyombo

Forward Robert Franks and guard Kobi Simmons are the team’s two-way players.
