What's the catch with this guy? Seems to good to be true to go undrafted.

I hope with all that I am that we sign someone to roster who has the last name Beans.

Having Franks and Beans on our roster at the same time would make my decade.

guy is a legit shooter with an efg% that rivals Cam Johnson but apparently undrafted because he is too stiff to guard anyone

"he's just so stiff he can't really even bend over..." discussion of Franks at 1:17

He is stiff.

Watching video of him, he just does’t make an effort on defense.

Interested in seeing his shooting mechanics work with longer three point line.

They talked about some of my sleepers. I added Reaves and Cheatam today (as my last roster additions of the season) Only thing Cheatham is missing is a Jumper and Reaves could be a sleeper. I think roach might have gotten cut from a tweet he posted. Not sure tho.

Interested to see how the group of Chealey, Macura, Kulboka, Martin, McDaniels, and Perkins shakes out.

Good player to sign to this type of contract. I like how he improved his FG % each year and was a major offensive contributor. Looking at video he is not very strong, limits his athleticism. He has a reliable quick release shooting stroke, good passer, seems to have good court awareness. Not a notable defender but he played as an undersized PF. He’s been listed at 6’9” but most show him at 6’7” and 225lbs. Someone mentioned he played stiff, and that is a good description. Has potential to eventually be a reserve player, which would be good value for an undrafted prospect.
I continue to wait...and hope...for the return to Hornet's glory.

Return to Charlotte Hornets
