Charlotte Hornets Jeremy Lin NBA Rich Cho

Joins Charlotte Hornets

8 Jul, 2015

Lin announces he will sign with the Charlotte Hornets on a two year, $4.3M deal. He’s the latest offseason addition as GM Cho looks to upgrade the team’s offense:

We were looking to get more depth in the backcourt and we feel really good about the signing.┬áHe’s going to bring some energy to our backcourt and our second unit. He will be a great addition.

Lin is expected to serve as back up to Kemba Walker and run the second team offense:

The one thing he can really do is get into the paint and with our second unit that is important because he can create shots for others. We have several guys on the second unit that will benefit from that whether it’s Jeremy Lamb or Spencer Hawes, Frank Kaminsky or Marvin Williams.
