Rich Cho Rumors
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.”
Charlotte Hornets general manager Rich Cho on Friday prepared fans for anything and everything in the upcoming NBA draft. “We’re looking at a lot of different options: moving up, moving back, moving out of the draft altogether,” Cho said of what might happen Thursday night.
Most of those participating in the Hornets’ workouts aren’t projected in the first round. Cho said it’s increasingly difficult to get prospects to audition if you have a pick in the bottom 10 of the first round. “According to the agents there are about 35 guys who will be picked before No. 22. We know there are going to be only 21,” Cho said.
