Hornets general manager Rich Cho was explicit if not specific when explaining the unusual move, which will allow Hairston to become a restricted free agent next offseason: “We feel like P.J. has to get more consistent and focused on and off the court,” Cho said Tuesday. Cho spoke with Hairston and his agent to explain the issues. And Hairston, to his credit, seems to be taking this bizarre situation in stride. “I have a starting job. I have Coach’s trust,” Hairston told Sporting News on Wednesday. “So like I said, I’m just going to take it from there. Whatever happens, happens.”

The Hornets had until midnight Monday to exercise a $1.25 million option for the 2016-17 season under Hairston’s rookie-scale contract. The team exercised a similar option for Cody Zeller Monday and signed Jeremy Lamb to a three-year, $21 million contract extension. “I spoke with P.J. and his agent. We just feel like P.J. has got to get more consistent and focused on and off the court,” Cho said Tuesday. “He knows what he has to do. P.J. has still got a bright future if he continues to work hard.”
