Rich Cho Rumors
General manager Rich Cho called Zeller a high character guy who plays both ends of the floor, and said he considers him a “big part” of the team’s core group moving forward. “We felt it was important to get him locked up to an extension rather than have him be a restricted free agent next summer,” Cho said. “With the cap next summer along with Cody’s value around the league as a young, versatile athletic big we felt he would have been a target for a number of teams.”
Charlotte Hornets General Manager Rich Cho announced today that the team has signed guards Andrew Andrews and Rasheed Sulaimon. Per team policy, terms of the deals were not disclosed.

The Portland, Ore., native appeared in 128 career games during his four-year career, owning averages of 14.2 points, 4.2 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 1.2 steals in 30.7 minutes per game.

Charlotte Hornets General Manager Rich Cho announced today that the team has re-signed forward Marvin Williams to a multi-year deal. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed. “Marvin Williams embodies the exact type of player we look for when building the Hornets roster,” said Cho. “He can defend multiple positions, brings versatility and improved shooting on the offensive end and is a veteran presence that our younger players look up to. We are excited to keep Marvin in Charlotte and build off last year’s success with him as a part of our team.”
Cho reiterated what he said shortly after the season , that re-signing small forward Nic Batum tops the list of priorities. “We hope to meet with him as soon as free agency starts,” Cho said. “Our goal is to get something done with him.”
