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.
