|Jalen McDaniels: Fourth-year option picked up|
The Hornets exercised McDaniels' $1.93 million team option for the 2022-23 season Tuesday, Rod Boone of The Charlotte Observer reports.
The Scoop: McDaniels' salary will become fully guaranteed Aug. 1, and the expectation is that he'll remain on the roster through that date, given that he was a steady rotation player for Charlotte in his third NBA season. He appeared in 55 games in 2021-22, averaging 6.2 points, 3.1 rebounds, 1.1 assists and 0.7 three-pointers in 16.3 minutes per contest while shooting 48.4 percent from the field and 38 percent from distance.
