The New Orleans Hornets announced today that they have signed guard Jerome Dyson to a 10-day contract.

Dyson, a University of Connecticut product, has appeared in 44 regular season games (all starts) with the Tulsa 66ers in the NBA Developmental League this season, averaging 17.8 points, 3.9 assists and 3.5 rebounds in 34.0 minutes of play. The 2010 Third Team All-Big East selection was signed to the Hornets training camp roster on December 9th, 2011, appearing in one preseason game with New Orleans (five points and one assist in seven minutes of action). He was the last player waived on December 24th prior to the start of the season.

The 6’3” guard also played 47 games (10 starts) for the 66ers in the 2010-11 season, averaging 15.5 points, 3.1 rebounds and 2.3 assists. The 24-year old went undrafted in the 2010 NBA Draft and played with the Oklahoma City Thunder in the 2010 preseason.

The Rockville, Maryland native will wear #11 for New Orleans and brings the roster to 15.

    I guess Monty wasn’t really feeling the way Marco was running the point, & didnt want Greivis out there for 48min running it

      If you have Gordon and Jack both out, that leaves two guards — Beli, Henry and Vazquez. It’s hard to run a good rotation with 3 guards without one of them being exhausted each night from extended playing time.

        And with only Jack out, you need another PG. You don’t want to regularly play people out of position when you have a roster spot open and a chance to see a young D leaguer play for you

    Dyson is a player that gives it his all. He is not greedy with the ball. He is humble and works hard. His team wants him to succeed. This is the kinda guy that the NBA needs! Way to go Hornets! Give this kid a chance…. more than a ten day… you wont be sorry!
