Former Hornets Player Kai Jones Sends A Message To The Fans After Being Cut From The Team

Former NBA big man opens up on the misconceptions about his character.

After two seasons in the NBA, former 19th overall pick Kai Jones was cut from the Hornets after posting a series of bizarre and inappropriate videos on social media. 

The behavior, which was described as unhinged, made Jones an outcast in the NBA community, but he's slowly trying to set the record straight. 

There are no signs that Kai Jones will return to the NBA, but it doesn't seem like he's eager for a comeback.  

Despite potentially losing out on millions of dollars, Kai decided to avoid therapy, thinking that he was better off not playing at all than being forced into getting help he clearly didn't want.

Jones was never on the verge of a breakout season in Charlotte, but he was showing promising signs as a young two-way big man.  

At 6'11" and 218 pounds, he could have been a solid backup center for the Hornets but it just wasn't in the cards.  

Back in September of this year, the 22-year-old went viral for his Instagram live video, where he was accused of taking drugs after showing bizarre and erratic behavior on camera.
