RICHMOND, Va. – The Freight Train is rolling into Charlotte.
On Tuesday the Charlotte Hornets inked former VCU star Treveon Graham, nicknamed the "Freight Train" to a contract. He is one of three VCU alums currently signed to an NBA deal, joining Troy Daniels of the Memphis Grizzlies and Briante Weber of the Miami Heat.
"We were impressed by Treveon's play last season in the D-League and followed him closely during his four-year career at VCU," said Hornets General Manager Rich Cho in a team release. "We are excited to add someone with Treveon's ability on both sides of the ball to our training camp roster."
Graham played last season for the Idaho Stampede, the Utah Jazz's D-League affiliate, where he averaged 15.7 points and 6.1 rebounds per game. Graham impressed this in the NBA Orlando Summer League in July, where he competed for the Orlando Magic's "White" squad and averaged 16.0 points in five games.
A two-time All-Atlantic 10 selection, Graham scored 1,882 points during his VCU career, second-most in school history, and led the Rams to four consecutive NCAA Tournament appearances. Graham was one of the driving forces behind the Rams' A-10 Conference Tournament Championship run in 2015.
