Rich Cho Rumors

Charlotte Hornets General Manager Rich Cho announced today that the team has signed guard Jorge Gutierrez to a second 10-day contract. Gutierrez signed his first 10-day contract with Charlotte on Feb. 20 and has appeared in one game, tallying four points, two assists and one steal vs. Cleveland on Feb. 24. The 6-3 Gutierrez appeared in 22 games (20 starts) for the Canton Charge in the NBA Development League this season, averaging 11.3 points, 5.7 assists, 4.2 rebounds and 2.2 steals in 27.8 minutes per game. Gutierrez scored in double figures in 13 games and has handed out 10-or-more assists twice. He recorded his first D-League triple-double with 18 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists on Jan. 9 vs. the Los Angeles D-Fenders at the NBA D-League Showcase.
With King’s departure, only five NBA teams have men of color who run their basketball departments, or have final say over personnel: Toronto, where Nigerian-born Masai Ujiri is general manager; Charlotte, whose GM, Rich Cho, is Asian-American; Minnesota, where Milt Newton, born in the U.S. Virgin Islands, was named GM after the death of Flip Saunders last year; New Orleans, with GM Dell Demps, and the Clippers, where Doc Rivers got final say on personnel when hired as the Clippers’ coach in 2013.
