Charlotte Hornets announced the signings of former UNC guard Marcus Paige and forward/center Mangok Mathiang on two-way contracts.
Both Paige and Mathiang are expected to play for the Greensboro Swarm, the Hornets’ G-League affiliate, but they can be called up to play for the Hornets at any time because of the two-way contract. Mathiang played for the Hornets during the Orlando summer league, averaging 4.4 points and 5 rebounds per game. Paige was drafted 55th overall in last year’s draft, and he played for the Wolves and Thunder during the 2017 Orlando Summer League, averaging 10.9 points and 3.9 assists per game.
