The Hornets are letting the Malik Monk experience come to an end.

On Sunday, the Charlotte Hornets announced that it will not extend shooting guard Malik Monk a qualifying offer, which will make the former Kentucky Wildcat an unrestricted free agent. Monk is now free to sign with any team he would like.

During his four NBA seasons, all with the Hornets, Monk put together career averages of 9.1 points per game on 40.3 percent shooting from the floor. It wasn’t until his third season that Monk, who was drafted No. 11 overall in the 2017 NBA Draft, finally began to showcase the shooting prowess that he did in his lone season at Kentucky. This past season in 2020-21, Monk was able to string together his most impressive stretch as a professional, posting averages of 11.7 points, 2.4 rebounds, and 2.1 assists per outing on shooting splits of 43.4/40.1/81.9 in 42 games off the bench.
