Kai Jones finally cut by the Hornets

Away from the team since the start of training camp because of his attitude, before publicly requesting his transfer on X/Twitter, Kai Jones has been cut by the Hornets.

A decision which is not surprising, as his future in North Carolina seemed uncertain for several days. In recent weeks, the pivot had indeed multiplied strange statements and videos on social networks, explaining for example that he was better than Shaquille O’Neal or LeBron James, and above all criticizing his teammates by declaring that they were too limited compared to what he could achieve on the floors…

At 22, Kai Jones leaves Charlotte while he was still on his rookie contract. Given his situation, however, it is difficult to imagine another franchise relaunching him immediately, especially since he has not shown anything extraordinary since his Draft, in 19th position in 2021…

In any case, it’s another wasted first round Draft choice for Charlotte, who is starting to accumulate them.
