Graham has appeared in 26 games for the Hornets, holding averages 4.2 points and 2.2 assists in 12.3 minutes per game. Charlotte acquired the rights to Graham, the 34th overall selection in the 2018 NBA Draft, from the Atlanta Hawks in a draft night trade. The assignment marks Devonte' Graham's sixth assignment to the Greensboro Swarm this season. The rookie guard has appeared in six games for the Swarm, averaging 25.3 points, 5.5 rebounds and 6.3 assists in 34.2 minutes. Among players with five or more appearances this season, Graham's 25.3 points per game ranks sixth in the G League.
Bacon and Graham will be available for the Swarm's game today against the Canton Charge at The Fieldhouse at the Greensboro Coliseum Complex at 2 pm.
