Thing #2: The Caleb Martin Thread 

Post#1 » by Snidely FC » Sun Oct 20, 2019 12:52 pm

Caleb Martin officially makes Charlotte Hornets roster
The Charlotte Hornets were clearly impressed with Caleb Martin in preseason, rewarding him with a three-year contract and a spot on the roster for the upcoming season.

With the regular season days away, teams must trim their roster down to 15 players, along with two two-way players. Martin can breathe a sigh of relief now after receiving a contract.

The team announced the news yesterday afternoon.

The deal is a three-year, partially guaranteed contract, according to The Athletic’s Shams Charania.

Not a bad depth/youth move to sign him IMO.

As I mentioned in the preseason grades thread I liked parts of his game.

Hopefully now he has a contract locked away he can play with more confidence, be a little more relaxed and not force the issue too much.

Martin averaged just over six points, two rebounds and one assist in 18 total NBA appearances this season, shooting 44 percent from the field and shooting a strong 54 percent from three (20-of-37 overall). He led all NBA players in catch-and-shoot efficiency from distance (63.3 percent; mini. 1.5 attempts per game), with the next closest player coming in at 55.3 percent.

“I want to keep being a consistent shooter and continue to knock those down,” Martin said. “In the game of basketball, you’re going to miss shots sometimes, but I would like to be one of those guys that other teams get nervous about when they’re open. I want to be one of those guys that other teams have to key in on. I want to be one of the guys who can help contribute and make another team afraid if I’m open.”

I've been without Hornets basketball for so long that I legit don't remember for sure which one Caleb is. He's the taller one, right?

I was never able to tell them apart aside from their jersey numbers.

Caleb is offense, Cody is defense. That's how I think of them anyway

I was worried I was being over hyped about the twins but I’m glad Calebs stats showed it wasn’t just my rose coloured glasses

I don't think it's a coincidence that we've hit on home state guys in the 2nd round. We should keep it up and sign Harry Giles this summer.

NC might also produce 3 of the top 4 vote recipients for MIP - Ingram, Adebayo, and Graham. Charlotte should not be an NBA afterthought, we should proudly represent on the worldwide basketball stage.

Same. I still have no idea which is which.

Is Caleb the one we actually drafted and is the one we drafted the good one?

We drafted Cody and he is the one that played all year

I've always felt like Caleb is the one with the highest potential. Cody is a stronger defender but his offensive game is really limited. Caleb just has to find his role and develop his skillset.
