Report: Williams accepts Hornets' camp invite

The team can bring in up to five more players for the preseason and they reportedly have invited Elliot Williams to training camp. The Charlotte Hornets currently have 15 players under contract, 14 with fully guaranteed salaries for 2015-16, and they will likely keep this group through the start of the regular season. From Rick Bonnell of The Charlotte Observer:

    "Williams, who is 6-foot-5, can play the point or shooting guard position. A first-round pick (22nd overall) by the Portland Trail Blazers in the 2010 draft, Williams has played 104 games over three NBA seasons for the Blazers, Philadelphia 76ers, Utah Jazz and New Orleans Pelicans. Williams briefly was on the Hornets’ roster last season, signing a 10-day contract in February after the team waived veteran Jannero Pargo. The Hornets later acquired Mo Williams from the Minnesota Timberwolves at the trade deadline and waived Williams before he made a game appearance."
