Charlotte Bobcats sign free agent Chris Douglas-Roberts

Published Add your comment

The Charlotte Bobcats have signed former Dallas Mavericks shooting guard Chris Douglas-Roberts.

Douglas-Roberts is back in the NBA after a brief absence away from the top-flight of American basketball.

The 26-year-old has recently been playing in the Development League with the Texas Legends but has sealed a move back to the NBA.

Douglas-Roberts was training with the New York Knicks during preseason but was released at the end of October.

Douglas-Roberts, who has also played in Italy, will be a welcome addition to the Bobcats - due to his ability to play at shooting guard or small forward.

The Bobcats, who are owned by former NBA superstar Michael Jordan, are currently third in the Southeast division of the Eastern Conference.

Steve Clifford's side have won 10 games so far this season - which leaves them behind both the Atlanta Hawks and the Miami Heat.

Douglas-Roberts could make his debut for the Bobcats on Wednesday night when North Carolina-based side take on the Orlando Magic at Time Warner Cable Arena.
