A report came out on Wednesday afternoon that Charlotte Hornets forward Josh McRoberts has opted out of his contract. McRoberts was scheduled to make $2,711,340 next season.
Josh McRoberts had a career season last year, averaging 8.5 points per game, and he was also a big part of the Charlotte Bobcats’ success. He’s a well-liked player around Charlotte, and we know the Hornets will do everything they can to re-sign him:
Every indication I have is Hornets will work to re-sign Josh McRoberts. Owner Michael Jordan and coach Steve Clifford are big fans.

McRoberts has said in the past that he wants to stay with Charlotte, but he feels he deserves a bigger paycheck, which is true. The way he played last year was worth a little more than $2 million. All signs point to him returning.
He helped space the floor last year with his ability to shoot 3’s, and he will also dunk on you if he has to. Just ask Birdman:
