The Charlotte Hornets are close to locking up one of their top young players for the next four years. The Hornets are on the verge of signing Michael Kidd-Gilchrist to a $52 million extension, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports.

Charlotte selected Kidd-Gilchrist with the No. 2 pick in the 2012 NBA Draft and have watched him develop into one of the NBA's premier wing defenders. Kidd-Gilchrist started to make all-around strides in his third pro season last year, averaging career-highs in points (10.9 per game), rebounds (7.6 per game) and minutes (28.9).

We'll update this story as it develops.

13 mil a year? I'm one of the biggest MKG guys out there and I think this is at best an overpayment.

I don't know, seems reasonable for Charlotte when you take into account the amount of cap space that'll need filling next summer. With the cap ballooning that's Jeff Green money, maybe a little less.
