CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — The Hornets have signed guard Marcus Paige and forward/center Mangok Mathiang to two-way contracts.

Financial terms of the deals were not announced Wednesday.

Both players are expected to play for Charlotte’s G-League team in Greensboro, North Carolina. Because they signed the NBA’s new “two-way contracts,” the Hornets control their rights, preventing other teams from signing them from the G-League.

The 6-foot-1 Paige played at North Carolina and was drafted with the 55th overall pick in the 2016 draft.

The 6-10, 230-pound Mathiang played for the Hornets in the 2017 Orlando Pro Summer League, where he averaged 4.4 points and 5 rebounds per game.

Charlotte also signed forward Isaiah Hicks and guard T.J. Williams to the team’s training camp roster (non-guaranteed contracts).
