This year was the last year for the Charlotte Bobcats, and it was a pretty great year when you compare it to some other years in the past. They are the Hornets now, and we couldn’t be more excited about it. There is just one problem with that, we aren’t changing rosters too. Alonzo Mouring and Muggsy Bogues aren’t coming back, just the Hornet name is.
I am not criticizing the Hornets roster at all, they have a bright future. One critical decision Charlotte has to make this off-season is whether or not to resign Josh McRoberts, should they?
Absolutely, but at the right price.
Would I sign him to a mid-level contract? I am not sure, but would I sign him to anything below that? Absolutely.
Rumor is though that Josh McRoberts will decline his player option of $2.8 million to become an unrestricted free agent.
Josh McRoberts has said he wants to stay in Charlotte “for many years.” He loves Charlotte, and loves playing for head coach Steve Clifford. McRoberts is also a former Duke Blue Devil, so he has some North Carolina roots.
Last season, McRoberts averaged 8.5 points, 4.8 rebounds and 4.3 assists per game.
Many fans love the intensity and passion that Josh McRoberts brings to the table. He is great from beyond the arc, and at dunking, as you can see from the video below.
If the Charlotte Hornets want to make a deeper run in the playoffs next season, Josh McRoberts needs to be apart of the team.
