Hornets Call Up Armor's Jeff Foote

The Springfield Armor announced before Thursday night's game vs. Canton that Jeff Foote was "unavailable". Later, Scott Schroeder tweeted, and the Armor confirmed, that the D-League All-Star had been called up to the Hornets. Armor personnel had seen the seven-footer as the most likely Nets call-up.

The Armor will retain Foote's rights if he returns to the D-League. The Nets hold no rights to Foote.

Without Foote and an injured JamesOn Curry, the Armor fell to the Canton Charge 106-103. Dennis Horner, the ex-Net, scored 23 points and grabbed 14 rebounds. Four other Armor players were in double figures. Luke Hanragody, just sent down by the Cavaliers, had a game-high 24 points.
