Hornets Sign Brian Roberts

JULY 23RD: The deal is official, the team announced via press release.

JULY 13TH: The Hornets are set to sign Brian Roberts to a two-year, $5.5MM+ deal, tweets Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports.

Late last week, Wojnarowski reported that Roberts was No. 1 on Charlotte’s wish list as they searched for a backup to point guard Kemba Walker.  The Pistons and Grizzlies were also said to have had interest.

In two seasons with New Orleans, Roberts has averaged 8.2 PPG and 3.0 APG in 19.9 minutes per contest while shooting 37.2% from the outside.  The former University of Dayton standout has a slightly below-average PER of 14.0 for his NBA career.
