Michael Kidd-Gilchrist signs new deal with Charlotte

It was reported earlier this week and now it’s official: Michael Kidd-Gilchrist has more money than you do. He already did before, but now there’s no catching up. Sorry, everyone.

MKG signed his new contract with the Hornets today, reportedly worth $52 million over four years, though the terms of the deal were not disclosed.

“I want to thank Hornets ownership, Rich, Chad, Coach Clifford and the entire organization,” said Kidd-Gilchrist, in a release from the franchise. “I’m excited to continue my career in Charlotte and be a part of the Hornets organization moving forward. I can’t wait to get out on the court with my teammates for this upcoming season.”

Couldn’t happen to a better guy.

    This is awesome – just moved to Charlotte and it is great to have a Cat to root for (still hoping Harrison wins a roster spot too).

    Good for him, but I hope he’s smart with it rather than buying more Bentleys and Ferraris, excessive jewelry, and paying his “entourage” to hang out with him everywhere. Learn from Antoine Walker.
