Hornets sign Andrew Andrews, Rasheed Sulaimon to training camp contracts


For players on the fringe of the NBA, the goal is to get noticed, then do things that make a team want to keep you on a guaranteed deal.

One way to do that: Stand out in training camp. Even if you don’t make the team where you went to camp, other teams will take notice.

Along those lines, the Hornets announced they have signed Andrew Andrews and Rasheed Sulaimon to non-guaranteed, training camp contracts, the team announced. The Hornets now have 13 guaranteed contracts heading into camp and five non-guaranteed deals of players trying to earn their way onto the squad.

Andrews was undrafted out of the University of Washington last season, where he averaged 20.9 points, 5.7 rebounds and 4.9 assists per game.

Sulaimon played for three seasons at Duke then finished his collegiate career at Maryland where he averaged 11.3 points per game and shot 42.5 percent from three last season.
