Carton, 21, is 6-foot-2 and went undrafted out of Marquette. He signed a training camp deal in August after appearing in four summer-league games and averaging 5.8 points and 2.8 assists. He did not play in the preseason.

Sneed, 23, is 6-5 and went undrafted out of Kansas State in 2020. He spent last season with the G League’s Greensboro Swarm, then averaged 6.3 points and 3.3 rebounds in four summer games with Charlotte. Like Carton, Sneed did not play in the preseason.

Charlotte’s roster now stands at 18, including two players on two-way contracts. The Hornets will still need to trade or release a player on guaranteed deal, as they are one over the NBA limit of 15.
