The Charlotte Hornets are in the process of developing their young talent, and with the NBA season ahead, they added another young guard to their roster Wednesday.
Ahmed Hill, a guard out of Virginia Tech, has reportedly signed a two-way contract with the Hornets, per ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. With Hill earning a two-way contract, he will play most of the season with the Greensboro Swarm, the Hornets’ G League affiliate.
Hill played six games with the Brooklyn Nets at the Las Vegas summer league in July. He played 18.2 minutes a game, and he averaged 6.8 points per game on 44.8% shooting; he also grabbed 2.3 rebounds a game.
Hill was at his best last season with the Hokies, his last year with the team. While playing a career-high 35.3 minutes a game, Hill scored a career-high 13.1 points per game and shot 44.3% from the field. He was also one of the Hokies’ best shooters as he shot 39.1% from the three-point line; he ranked fourth on the team in three-point shooting.
