The Hornets have officially signed Jerome Dyson to a 10-day contract, the team announced today. Dyson broke the news himself yesterday, tweeting, "Got that call I've been waiting for headed back to the NO get to sign the contract in the morning."
Dyson, 24, has yet to appear in a regular season NBA game, though he played for the Hornets in the preseason. The 6'3" guard was waived on December 24th, and has spent the season playing for the D-League's Tulsa 66ers. In 44 games, he averaged 17.8 points in 34 minutes per contest.
As our 10-day tracker shows, Dyson is the fifth player to sign a 10-day contract with the Hornets this season.
