Master P Hangs Tough With Hornets As Season Nears

Master P might make the NBA after all.

The rapper/CEO is still hanging tough with the NBA's Charlotte Hornets, and remains part of their 16-man training camp roster.

As we first reported last week (see [article id="1431940"]"Master P Goes To Camp With NBA's Hornets"[/article]), the artist-currently-known-as-Percy Miller arrived in Charlotte last Thursday for the team's training camp. One week later, P is still with the squad after scoring seven points in an intrasquad scrimmage last weekend.

The next hurdle will come for P next Thursday, February 4, when the Hornets trim their 16-man roster down to the 14 who will start the season with the team (after the first two weeks of the season, the roster will be pared down again to 12).

A spokesperson for the Hornets told MTV News that it is likely that an injury will keep guard Glen Rice (another of the 16 players filling a slot on the Hornets current roster) from starting the season with the team,

so the Hornets may only have to cut one more player before the start of the season.

P, who is wearing the number 0 with the Hornets, has been playing guard with the team.
