Bobcats re-sign F McRoberts
Charlotte, NC (Sports Network) - The Charlotte Bobcats re-signed forward Josh McRoberts on Thursday.
The Charlotte Observer reported last Friday that the two-year deal has a total net worth of $5.5 million.
McRoberts won the starting position over Byron Mullens down the stretch of the Bobcats' 21-61 campaign last season.
"Josh is a quality big man who can both score and distribute the ball, and he was integral in our improvement late last season," Bobcats president of basketball operations Rod Higgins said. "In addition to his play on the floor, he provided a strong presence and example for our younger players. We are happy to have him back on our team."
The seven-year veteran averaged 9.3 points, 7.2 rebounds and 2.7 assists in 26 games with the Bobcats last season after being acquired in a midseason trade with the Orlando Magic.
McRoberts was drafted in the second round by the Portland Trail Blazers in 2007 and has also played for the Indiana Pacers and Los Angeles Lakers over the course of his professional career.
