Mangok Inks Deal with Charlotte Hornets



Former Louisville center/forward Mangok Mathiang has agreed to a two-way deal with the Charlotte Hornets, according to a report from the Charlotte Observer.

Mathiang, who played at Louisville from 2013-17, went undrafted last June but signed a Summer League deal with the team after the draft. Mathiang averaged 4.4 points and five rebounds in five games this summer, and had a stellar finish to his collegiate career (averaging 15.3 PPG and 7.5 RPG in the final four contests).

With signing a two-way deal, Mathiang will fluctuate back and forth between the Hornets and their G-League affiliate, the Greensboro Swarm. Former UNC guard Marcus Paige was also signed to a similar deal with Mathiang. Under the two-way deal, both Mathiang and Paige are officially on the Hornets’ roster without counting against the 15-man limit, and can be on the main roster for 45 days maximum.
