Maledon was drafted in the 2nd round of the 2020 NBA Draft.

Since then, he has played two seasons with the Thunder and, most recently, a little less than one and a half seasons with the Hornets, as he was waived three days ago.

This season with the Hornets, he averaged 4.2 points per game on just .288 shooting.

Following a 2-12 shooting performance on November 12th, Maledon played in just four of the next 14 games for Charlotte.
