      After 2 in a season, that team has to keep you for the rest of the season if they want you for another game.

    I’d like to see Sloan and Thomas both get signed for the rest of the season. They could both be inexpensive pieces at the tail end of the bench who can help the Hornets now and in the future.

    Sloan may not be the quickest PG out there but no doubt he can play ball at the point. Hoping the hornets can keep him for the season just in case one of our ball handlers get hurt.
