On Wednesday the Charlotte Hornets made the signing of point guard Brian Roberts official.
Last year with the New Orleans Pelicans, Roberts averaged 9 points per game, averaging a little over 20 minutes of playing time. Roberts will be serving as Kemba Walker’s backup, so he will have a similar role with Charlotte as he did with New Orleans.
Brian Roberts was excited to be a Hornet, but he said it was a little weird:
