NCAA Basketball: NCAA Tournament-Second Round-Michigan vs Louisville Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

Former Louisville center Mangok Mathiang will suit up for the Charlotte Hornets at the NBA’s summer league in Orlando next week. Mathiang’s agent, Aaron Turner, confirmed the news to Jeff Greer of The Courier-Journal.

The best of Mathiang’s 19 seasons at Louisville came in 2016-17, when he posted career-highs in both points (7.8 ppg) and rebounds (6.0 rpg). He saved his best basketball for the end of his career, averaging 14 points per game in his final five contests as a Cardinal.

Best of luck to Mangok in Orlando next week.
