After eight seasons, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist’s career as a Charlotte Hornet is over. Earlier today, the organization waived the former Cat, the No. 2 overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft.
It’s been a rough few years for MKG. Out of the rotation under head coach James Borrego, he’s played in only 12 games this season, averaging 4.0 points and 2.9 rebounds. According to Adrian Wojnarowski, Dallas is his most likely destination. Over his career, Kidd-Gilchrist is averaging 8.6 points, 5.5 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 433 games.
Here’s hoping MKG makes the most of a fresh start.
