The Hornets have tendered a minimum contract to second-round draft pick, Jalen McDaniels.
McDaniels was drafted towards the end of the 2019 draft in June but remains unsigned. The Hornets tendered him a contract today, guaranteeing that they have his rights for one season whether or not he signs the contract. For now, we can ignore McDaniels from a fantasy perspective even though the Hornets have one of the thinnest rosters in recent memory.

The Hornets selected San Diego State F Jalen McDaniels with the 52nd pick in the NBA Draft on Thursday night.
McDaniels possesses excellent size at 6-foot-9 with a 7-foot wingspan whose main skills at this point are attacking off the dribble and crashing the glass. He will need to add weight (weighs 190 lbs) which should help him defensively – an area of his game that needs refinement along with his jumper.
