Michael Carter-Williams and the Charlotte Hornets have agreed to a one-year deal, according to The Charlotte Observer’s Rick Bonnell. The deal will be worth $2.7 million, per ESPN’s Chris Haynes, and provides the Hornets with a backup to Kemba Walker after presumably losing several guards from last season to free agency.
Instead, Carter will join Sacramento making more money than he likely could have gotten from anyone else, given the Kings’ huge amount of cap space entering this summer.
Carter spent his last three seasons in Memphis after a three-year stint in Dallas. His numbers have understandably declined, but last year was his best as a Grizzly, averaging eight points and nearly two assists per game while hitting 38 percent of his three-pointers. He also played (73) and started (15) more games than he did in the previous two Memphis seasons.

Many thought that Carter might join a title contender, allowing him to be a bench piece and role player, but Carter instead is joining a Sacramento Kings team that is a mixture of young and old. Earlier this week, the Kings signed Zach Randolph for a two-year deal and George Hill to a three-year deal.
Either way, we can only hope that Carter plays forever.
A month later, several staffers complained to Hayes about the disparities in security enforcement for black and white entertainers. According to the lawsuit, the practices Hayes had encountered were going on long before Hayes started working for at the Atlanta Hawks.
