WEDNESDAY, 11:13am: Charlotte has made the signing official, announcing the addition of Douglas-Roberts in a press release. The four-year NBA veteran is a Creative Artists Agency client, as the Hoops Rumors Agency Database shows.
TUESDAY, 8:43pm: The Bobcats plan to sign Chris Douglas-Roberts from the D-League’s Texas Legends, tweets Marc Stein of ESPN.com. In six games with the Legends this year, CDR is averaging 18.7 points, 4.3 boards and 2.8 assists per contest. He’s playing 34 minutes per night and is shooting over 47 percent from the field.
The Memphis product played for the Legends last year as well, and also appeared in six games for the Mavericks. He was in camp with the Knicks this preseason but was waived in late October. As Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer tweets, the Bobcats are likely looking for depth given the injuries to Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and Jeff Taylor and the inexperience of rookie James Southerland (Twitter links).
