Ray McCallum Jr. is one step closer to getting a guaranteed contract for the rest of the NBA season.
The former Detroit Country Day and Detroit Mercy star was signed to a second 10-day contract by the Charlotte Hornets on Monday. NBA players can be signed to two 10-day contracts in a season before either being let go or signed for the rest of the season.
McCallum, 25, hasn’t played in an NBA game this season, which he began with the Detroit Pistons. He was a late cut just before the season, and assigned to the Grand Rapids Drive of the NBA Development League.
A second-round pick by the Sacramento Kings in 2013, he played two seasons with the Kings, and split last season between the San Antonio Spurs and Memphis Grizzlies.
The 6-foot-3, 190-pound point guard has averaged 6.0 points and 2.4 assists over 154 NBA games, including 46 starts.
