“I’ve seen a lot of situations,” he said. “I saw a lot of different things that prepared me for this moment.”

LiAngelo went the college route and joined the UCLA program. Before his first game, however, he was involved in a shoplifting case in China that saw the Bruins open the 2017/18 season. A team suspension resulted and he dropped out of school before ever playing a college game.

The hike from there involved a lot of twists and turns.

Then LiAngelo averaged 9.6 points in five games when the Hornets entered the Las Vegas Summer League. He wasn’t selected for Charlotte’s training camp, but had made an impression.

“I feel good with LiAngelo and the way he played,” said Hornets coach James Borrego in September. “I thought he got better during that time, but we have certain choices to make here. … I can only speak for what he did on the floor in Vegas and I thought he performed well, opened his eyes and played at a higher level than I expected. “
