The Charlotte Hornets have made their first move post-draft, inking guard Nate Darling to a two-way contract per Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.
UAB guard Nate Darling is signing a two-way deal with Charlotte, his agents Mike George and Nate Daniels of @OneLegacySports tell ESPN.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) November 19, 2020
Darling spent two seasons at UAB, but transferred to Delaware for the 2019-20 season. There, he averaged 21.0 points, 3.9 rebounds, and 2.8 assists per game while shooting 39.9% from three on 8.4 3-point attempts per game. He earned All CAA honors for his efforts.
I don’t know anything about Darling, but from what I can tell, he’s a shooter through and through. I don’t know if he can do anything else, but if he can shoot well enough, he’ll find a spot as a professional, be it with the Greensboro Swarm or eventually with the Hornets.
The Hornets have one more two-way spot available, and you know we’ll have a post on that up as soon as it’s announced. That may come soon, or the Hornets may elect to wait awhile before using it. come soon, or
