Former Washington State forward Robert Franks saw his first NBA action on Sunday since signing a two-way contract with the Charlotte Hornets against the San Antonio Spurs. After watching the Hornets first game against the Golden State Warriors on Friday from the bench, Franks was ready to make his Summer League debut.

Entering the game midway through the first quarter Franks picked up a quick foul and would sit until the third quarter where he would score his first points in the NBA. Shortly after coming in he would knock down a 26-footer for his first points of the season. He would miss two threes and pick up another foul before making his second and final basket of the night. He finished the game with 5 points going 2-4 and coming down with a rebound in his 12 minutes of play in the 106-96 loss to the Spurs.

The Hornets took on the Chinese National team on Monday evening where Franks saw a little less action. After picking up a foul and missing his first two shots of the game, he would block a 14-foot jumper and sink a 26-foot three before heading to the bench in the second quarter and would sit the rest of the game. He would finish with three-points going 1-3 and the one foul in his 6 minutes of play in the Hornets 84-80 loss to China.
