Hornets, Jeremy Lamb Agree To $21 Million Contract

Jeremy Lamb

The Charlotte Hornets and swingman Jeremy Lamb have agreed to a three-year contract extension, worth $21 million, reports ESPN.

The 23-year-old was the 12th overall pick in the 2012 draft by the Houston Rockets, but has spent the past three seasons in Oklahoma City after being traded to the Thunder as part of the James Harden megatrade in October 2012.

The Hornets acquired Lamboin late June in a trade for Luke Ridnour, along with a 2016 second-round pick. With the new deal, he'll be 27 when he returns to free agency in the summer of 2019... if the deal runs its course.

In three seasons with OKC, Lamb has put up career averages of 7 points, 2.1 rebounds and 1.1 assists per game.
