Rich Cho Rumors

Charlotte Hornets General Manager Rich Cho announced today that the team has named Buzz Peterson Assistant General Manager. “Throughout his tenure with our organization, Buzz has been an integral part of all aspects of our basketball operations department, with a focus on scouting and player evaluation,” Cho said. “He brings a wide breadth of basketball knowledge to the position, having been involved in the game at various levels for close to three decades. I’m excited to be working more closely with Buzz in his new role and look forward to his continued contributions to our basketball team.”
By all accounts, the Charlotte Hornets and GM Rich Cho had a solid NBA draft night, picking up one of the top shooters on the board in Kentucky’s Malik Monk and snagging Florida State standout Dwayne Bacon in the second round. However, Cho suffered a regrettable draft-related moment Friday when introducing Monk and Bacon to the media back in North Carolina. Yup, he really called Dwayne Bacon ‘Dwyane Wade.”
