The Charlotte Hornets announced three signings for training camp in September: Guard Jaylen Barford (Arkansas) and forwards Zach Smith (Texas Tech) and Isaiah Wilkins (Virginia).

All three would fit in the make-good/camp bodies category: Players who will expand the preseason roster to 18, but each a long shot to make it to the regular season.

The NBA roster maximum is 15, plus up to two two-way contracts for developmental players who will play primarily for the G-League Greensboro Swarm.

The Hornets currently have 14 players under guaranteed contract and have committed one of the two-way spots to Xavier guard J.P. Macura. Training camp is in late September in Chapel Hill.
