The Charlotte Hornets signed first-round draft pick P.J. Hairston, the team announced Friday.
The Hornets acquired the rights to Hairston (26th overall pick) and guard Semaj Christon (55th overall pick), along with a 2019 second-round draft pick and cash considerations, from the Miami Heat in exchange for the rights to guard Shabazz Napier (24th overall pick).
Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
The 6-foot-6 Hairston became the first NBA Development League player to be selected in the first round of the draft. He was named to the D-League All-Rookie Second Team in 2013-14 as a member of the Texas Legends. Hairston averaged 21.8 points, 3.5 rebounds and 1.5 steals in 32.3 minutes, while shooting .453 from the field (183-404), .358 from beyond the 3-point line and .870 from the free-throw line.
Hairston played two seasons at the University of North Carolina, averaging 10.0 points, 3.2 rebounds and 1.0 assist in 71 career games from 2011-13.
As a sophomore in 2012-13, he led the Tar Heels in scoring, averaging 14.6 points, and posted the second-best single-season 3-point field goal total in school history (89). Hairston was also selected First Team All-ACC Tournament as a sophomore.
