Charlotte Hornets sign Treveon Graham
The Charlotte Hornets have announced the signing of 2015 VCU grad Treveon Graham. Per team policy, the details of the deal were not disclosed.
“We were impressed by Treveon’s play last season in the D-League and followed him closely during his four-year career at VCU,” said Cho. “We are excited to add someone with Treveon’s ability on both sides of the ball to our training camp roster.”
Graham stood out in the NBA Summer League play this month, averaging 16 points, 3.4 rebounds and 3.2 assists. That followed a stellar finish in his first year in the NBA D-League to give Graham the momentum needed to join fellow 2015 classmate Briante Weber in the NBA.
The signing comes just weeks after the Hornets said goodbye to fellow VCU grad, Troy Daniels, who recently signed a three-year deal with the Memphis Grizzles.
The three Rams give VCU its most ever representatives in the NBA at one time in the history of the program, coincidentally all making their way to the NBA through the NBA D-League.
Former 2010 NBA Draft pick, Larry Sanders, has been rumored to have been talking with several teams as well for a potential return to the league after stepping away from the game to deal with anxiety and other off-the-court issues.
Graham was one of the most successful Rams in the history of the program, helping take VCU to four consecutive NCAA tournaments and finishing his career as the second leading scorer in the history of the program with his 1882 total points.
Graham earned 2015 Atlantic 10 tournament MVP honors en route to VCU’s first and only A-10 tournament title.
A two-time A-10 First Team selection, the DC native won 108 games while at VCU including two NCAA tournament wins.
