    The Hornets assinged rookies Cody Martin, Caleb Martin and Jalen McDaniels to the G-League on Sunday.

    Caleb Martin was getting rotation minutes through the first month of the year but has lost them all to the return of Nicolas Batum. None of these guys are on the fantasy radar.

    The Hornets have called up Caleb Martin and Jalen McDaniels ahead of Saturday's game against the Bulls.

    Both Martin and McDaniels have barely seen the court for the Hornets so there is no fantasy impact here. Both players are playing very well in the G League as Martin is putting up 18.3 points, 5.3 rebounds, 4.3 assists, 2.5 steals, 1.5 blocks and 1.5 triples after four games. McDaniels is averaging 17.8 points, 9.5 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 2.2 steals, 1.2 blocks and 1.3 triples after six games.

    Hornets GM Mitch Kupchak said that Cody Martin, Jalen McDaniels, Robert Franks and Kobi Simmons will play primarily in the G League this season.

    No surprise here, as Charlotte has been diligent about making its rookies log time with the Greensboro Swarm in recent seasons. This group is not worth monitoring in fantasy leagues.

    The Hornets have converted Jalen McDaniels to a multi-year contract.

    McDaniels was playing on a two-way contract before being signed in the long term. This will open up another possible two-way contract for the Hornets.

    Hornets have converted the contract of second round pick Jalen McDaniels into a two-way contract.

    McDaniels will likely see the majority of the time in the G League. However, the Hornets roster is rather thin and may get some call ups. There is no need to draft him until we see him in action.

    The Hornets have signed Jalen McDaniels, one of their second-round picks from the 2019 draft.

    McDaniels signed with the team much later than expected and it is unclear as to why. He could end up seeing some time with the team as they will be going into the future with a youth movement. He can be left undrafted in redraft leagues and is not a viable option in DFS until we see something from him.

    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.
