Hornets Sign Xavier Sneed To 10-Day Contract

12:02pm: The Hornets have officially signed Sneed to a 10-day contract, the team confirmed in a press release.

9:52am: The Hornets are calling up forward Xavier Sneed from the G League, according to Rod Boone of The Charlotte Observer, who reports (via Twitter) that Sneed is signing a 10-day contract with the club.

Sneed, 25, has spent the 2022/23 season with the Greensboro Swarm, Charlotte’s NBAGL affiliate, and has appeared in a total of 44 games from the club across the Showcase Cup and regular season. In 32 regular season appearances (31.2 MPG), Sneed has averaged 12.5 points, 4.7 rebounds, and 2.4 assists per night with a .393/.318/.738 shooting line.

A G League regular since going undrafted out of Kansas State in 2020, Sneed has also accumulated a little NBA experience. He played in two games for the Grizzlies while on a 10-day contract last season and then saw action in seven more contests for the Jazz on a two-way deal.

The Hornets have had an opening on their 15-man roster for months, so no corresponding move will be necessary to create an opening for Sneed. Charlotte still has an open two-way slot as well.

Sneed will earn $94,136 on his 10-day deal with the Hornets. He’ll provide depth for a banged-up Charlotte squad that is currently without LaMelo Ball, Terry Rozier, and Cody Martin (Gordon Hayward and Kelly Oubre are also on the injury report for Tuesday’s game).
