Hornets Sign Ray McCallum To 10-Day Contract

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The Charlotte Hornets have signed guard Ray McCallum to a 10-day contract.

McCallum was originally drafted, out of Detroit Mercy, by the Sacramento Kings in the second round of the 2013 NBA Draft.  He was called up from the Grand Rapids Drive of the NBA Development League, where he was averaging 18.2 points, 7.5 assists, and 2.4 steals.

The 6 foot 3 inch guard has career averages of 6.0 points, 2.4 steals and 2.0 rebounds, while appearing in 154 games for the Kings, Spurs, and Grizzlies.

This move comes on the Hornets’ trade with the Milwaukee Bucks, which sent Spencer Hawes and Roy Hibbert to Milwaukee in exchange for Miles Plumlee.

The Hornets next game is Saturday night against the Jazz in Utah.  The Hornets are in the midst of a six game losing streak and are currently the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference playoff race.
