Dwayne Bacon Signs Three-Year Deal With Hornets

Dwayne Bacon, the 40th pick in this year’s draft, has officially signed with the Hornets, the team announced on its website.

Bacon received a three-year deal, with the first two seasons fully guaranteed, tweets Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.com, who adds that Bacon is making a positive impression in summer league play and posted a 29-point performance this afternoon.

The Hornets acquired Bacon’s rights, along with cash, in a draft-night trade with the Pelicans.

Bacon was an All-ACC Second Team choice this season after averaging 17.2 points and 4.2 rebounds at Florida State. He was a finalist for the Julius Erving award, which goes to the nation’s best small forward.
