CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The Hornets have signed guard Marcus Paige and forward/center Mangok Mathiang to two-way contracts.
Financial terms of the deals were not announced Wednesday.
Both players are expected to play for Charlotte’s G League team in Greensboro, North Carolina. Because they signed the NBA’s new “two-way contracts,” the Hornets control their rights, preventing other teams from signing them from the G League.
The 6-foot-1 Paige played at North Carolina and was drafted with the 55th overall pick in the 2016 Draft.
The 6-10, 230-pound Mathiang played for the Hornets in the 2017 Orlando Pro Summer League, where he averaged 4.4 points and 5.0 rebounds per game.
