Brianté Weber and the Charlotte Hornets have agreed to a two-year deal. Weber had been with the Hornets for two ten-day contracts, and the team decided to sign him long term. The point guard appeared in five games for the Hornets, posting 3.6 points, 1.6 rebounds, 1.2 assists per game while shooting 50% from the floor, albeit in limited minutes.
Before getting to Charlotte, Weber had been on successive ten-day contracts with the Golden State Warriors, who decided to move on from the young guard in order to sign a more established veteran.
After graduating from Virginia Commonwealth University, Weber made a name for himself as a triple-double threat/defensive pest in the NBA D-League. During the 2016-17 season, Weber was recording impressive per-game stats to the tune of 16.5 points, 7.5 rebounds, 7.4 assists, and a league-leading 3.3 steals. Prior to being called up to the NBA, Weber was named a D-League All-Star.

I was sad to see the Warriors not sign him long term. Hope he makes a name for himself in the league.
