Former Kentucky forward PJ Washington broke NBA and franchise records in his NBA debut Wednesday night vs. the Chicago Bulls.
Washington scored a team high 27 points, the most by a Hornets player in his rookie debut. The previous record was 22 points by Emeka Okafor in 2004. The 2019 lottery pick also connected on 7-of-11 three-point attempts, which is an NBA record for most made threes in a debut.
The former Wildcat was in a zone in his debut, as he helped lead the Charlotte to a 126-125 win vs. the Bulls.
