The Bobcats have signed DJ White for the remainder of the season, the team announced via press release. The second 10-day contract he’d signed with the team this year expired Wednesday night. Charlotte’s statement only mentions this season, so it doesn’t sound like the team has tacked an additional season onto White’s deal, as the Celtics did when they signed the power forward for the rest of 2012/13.
White saw action in just one game on each 10-day contract, totaling 10 minutes. Still, the organization is familiar with him from his time with the Bobcats in 2010/11 and 2011/12, when he was a part of the team’s rotation. Since then, the Jeff Wechsler client has played mostly in the Chinese league, and this year he averaged 20.2 points and 8.5 rebounds for China’s Sichuan Blue Whales. He’s notched 5.9 PPG and 3.2 RPG in 15.3 minutes per contest over his NBA career, which spans six seasons.
The signing gives the Bobcats a full 15-man roster heading into the playoffs. They’d been one of a half-dozen teams with at least one open roster spot, as I noted earlier today. I’d expect more teams on that list to make additions in the days ahead.
