Hornets not extending qualifying offer to Graham

Publish date:

The Charlotte Hornets have decided not to offer a qualifying offer to Treveon Graham, making him an unrestricted free agent, according to a report.

Shams Charania of Yahoo reports the forward will now become an unrestricted free agent in July.

The 6-foot-6, 220-pound shooting guard averaged 4.3 points, 1.9 rebounds and 0.9 assists in 16.7 minutes in 63 games (2 starts) for the Hornets last season.

Graham, 24, a VCU product, shot 43.4 percent from the field and 45.2 percent from the 3-point line last season, his second in the NBA.

He earned $1.3 million last season.

The Hornets also declined to make a qualifying offer to guard Marcus Paige, who had a two-way contract with the Hornets and the Greensboro Swarm of the G League last season. The North Carolina product appeared in five games for the Hornets and 46 for the Swarm last season.
