Kahlil Whitney signs Exhibit 10 deal with Charlotte Hornets

Former Kentucky forward Kahlil Whitney will be joining PJ Washington, Malik Monk and Nick Richards in Charlotte.

According to Adam Zagoria, Whitney has agreed to an Exhibit 10 deal with the Hornets, per his agent.

An Exhibit 10 contract is a one-year deal worth the minimum salary with zero compensation protection, but can include an optional bonus ranging from $5,000 to $50,000. These contracts can only be converted to a two-way deal before the regular season begins, though a two-way deal can later be converted into a standard NBA contract. Teams can carry up to six Exhibit 10 deals at a time.

In his brief time at Kentucky, Whitney appeared in 18 games with eight starts, averaging 3.3 points and 1.7 rebounds. The former five-star prospect left the program on Jan. 24 to pursue other options before ultimately declaring for the NBA Draft.

Whitney, who went undrafted in Wednesday’s NBA Draft, joins Nate Sestina (Brooklyn Nets) as former Wildcats to sign Exhibit 10 contracts this offseason. Ashton Hagans (Minnesota Timberwolves) and EJ Montgomery (Milwaukee Bucks) both signed two-way deals after the draft.

Tyrese Maxey (Philadelphia 76ers), Immanuel Quickley (New York Knicks) and Nick Richards (Charlotte Hornets) all heard their names called on draft night.

    Why do you all keep talking about him and calling him a former Cat? He didn’t transfer, he straight bailed on the team because he was spoiled and not getting his way. He came in with so much hype he couldnt live up to and he ran. So calling him a former Cat is an insult to former players who gave their blood, sweat, and tears for the team.

      You can’t erase history just because you dont like certain aspects of it. They call him a former cat because he formerly played for the Wildcats. The terms of his departure are irrelevant. To not acknowledge his college would be illogical, especially for a blog dedicated to Kentucky basketball.

      Lol do you not think I dont understand why he’s called that? You obviously didn’t sense what I was really saying in my comment. HE IS NOT A CAT!!! HE BAILED!!! JUST LIKE DANIEL ORTON!!! And how he left ABSOLUTELY MATTERS! I could care less about these players that bailed on their teammates making them the epitome of selfishness. Which is why most UK fans would probably agree, we don’t care about seeing any article about him. I don’t wish any ill will on him, but I could care less. If he thought competition at UK was hard, what’s he going to do in the pros?

      His biggest mistake was listening to the outside voices

    What do you mean you can’t erase history? This country is FULL of nut bags that want to do exactly that. Isn’t there a statue of Whitney somewhere that all of the woke 20 something females can tear down?

    Exhibit 10 for why he should have stuck around and finished what he started at UK.

    Absolutely do not wish him any ill will. He’s just a kid! But many of us can look back on our youth and identify mistakes we made and who advised us to make those decisions. Pretty sure he will someday look back on these days with regret (whether he admits it or not).

    I dont wish any ill will towards him. But, he’s a quitter, that fact won’t change.
