“I didn’t get much playing time in Charlotte,” he said. “I’m looking at this as a new beginning. There’s a lot of great players on this team and I’m looking forward to playing for a winning organization.” Vonleh, 19, was the No. 9 overall pick in the 2014 NBA draft, but barely got an opportunity with the Hornets, averaging 3.3 points and 3.4 rebounds in just 25 games. He missed training camp with a sports hernia and had to play catch up from the beginning, trapped behind Charlotte’s glut of veteran bigs. “Missing training camp was tough. I was rehabbing pretty much the whole time so I wasn’t able to watch practice too much,” Vonleh explained. “When I got back it was kind of tough being a little behind.”
Noah Vonleh: Just want to give thanks to the Hornets Organization for everything they have done so far for me in the start of my NBA career. I’m going to miss this city and the great fan base here but I’m looking forward to this new opportunity in my career and cant wait to be a Portland TrailBlazer. #NewBeginnings

We wish Nic all the best for the future.”

I spoke with him at length before the Raptors game. He’s going to spend most of the offseason here in Charlotte, play in Orlando’s Summer League and then spend time working out in Los Angeles with other NBA players. He said that he’s going to work on all aspects of his game. I asked him if he is more comfortable playing outside or inside, and he categorically said “outside.” He said like a “3/4” (small forward/power forward hybrid) but can play the post as well. His favorite 3-point location is from up top (where he hit one last night). He also enjoys the right corner on those deep shots.
Charlotte Hornets General Manager Rich Cho announced today that the team has recalled forward Noah Vonleh from its NBA D-League affiliate, the Fort Wayne Mad Ants. Vonleh will rejoin the team for tonight’s game against the Houston Rockets. Vonleh saw action in two games with the Mad Ants, averaging 7.0 points, 4.5 rebounds, 1.5 steals and 1.0 block in 13.0 minutes per game. He shot .353 from the field (6-17) and .667 from beyond the three-point line (2-3).
Charlotte Hornets General Manager Rich Cho announced today that the team has assigned forward Noah Vonleh to its NBA D-League affiliate, the Fort Wayne Mad Ants. “We believe Noah would benefit greatly from additional game experience,” Cho said. “He will be able to get that playing time through this D-League assignment.”
The context on this is Vonleh had surgery in early September to repair a sports hernia. That cost him the voluntary workouts, where the basics of the Hornets’ system were taught, plus almost all of the preseason. I asked Hornets coach Steve Clifford to offer specifics why he doesn’t play Vonleh in anything but mop-up minutes right now. ”It’s the speed of the game: To play consistent, regular minutes you have to have a comfort level with how the NBA game is played,” Clifford said. “Unfortunately once the season starts you only have certain stretches of the year where you can practice a lot. He’s a 19-year-old who missed all of September, when the foundation was put in, and all of October and is now playing catch-up. The thing that gives him a chance is he’s very gifted and a great worker. But it would be tough for anybody” to catch up quickly after missing his rookie preseason.
Just hours before the new NBA season tips off, the Jordan Brand has announced new partnerships with three rookies. The latest additions to Team Jordan are Phoenix Suns point guard Tyler Ennis, Charlotte Hornets power forward Noah Vonleh and Boston Celtics shooting guard James Young.
Rick Bonnell: Hornets rookie Noah Vonleh (sports hernia) played 1-on-1 yesterday and today. If no setbacks he could start 5-on-5 next week.
He didn’t expect to live in Charlotte. Projected by most as a top-seven pick, he had not thought much about the Hornets before the draft. “It was a crazy night,” Vonleh said. “I didn’t even work out for the Hornets. I think, if I can remember, they might have asked me to. But my agent felt I wasn’t going to fall that far.”

Adrian Wojnarowski: The Charlotte Hornets will select Noah Vonleh with the No. 9 pick in the NBA Draft, league source tells Yahoo Sports.
The top 10 picks in the NBA draft could include the selection of three power forwards in Vonleh, Arizona’s Aaron Gordon and Kentucky’s Julius Randle. Vonleh is expected to be selected first among those three power forwards while Gordon is not expected to drop any later than the eighth selection from the Sacramento Kings, sources said. Gordon and Randle have also worked out twice for the Los Angeles Lakers, who have the seventh pick.
While Parker and Wiggins are expected to be taken with the top two picks, several sources believe that injured former Kansas center Joel Embiid or Exum are expected to be the next two selections by the Philadelphia 76ers and Orlando Magic, respectively. Former Indiana forward Noah Vonleh could round out the top five, a source said
