Josh Davis records double-double in first NBA Summer League game with the Charlotte Hornets

Richard Mackson-USA TODAY Sports

The double-double machine strikes again.

Former San Diego State forward Josh Davis didn't hear his name called on draft night, but he signed with the summer league team of his hometown Charlotte Hornets two days after the 60th and final pick was announced. And so far, this North Carolina native is definitely making the most of his opportunity, earning an impressive double-double today in Las Vegas.

The Hornets played their first NBA Summer League game today against the Golden State Warriors. Charlotte lost to the Warriors 70-58 under their summer coach, Patrick Ewing. Davis didn't start, but played minutes off the bench behind Noah Vonleh, Charlotte's most heralded draft pick. So let's compare how the starter and backup fared today in Las Vegas.

Vonleh scored 0 points and hauled in 6 rebounds in 32 minutes of play.

Davis, on the other hand, scored 14 points on 6-of-8 shooting and grabbed 16 boards in 29 minutes of play.

Yes, it's just one game. But if Davis keeps playing like he did today, he's going to make it very difficult for the Hornets' front office to keep him off their roster.
