Brian Roberts officially signs with Hornets

The signing of Brian Roberts kind of fell under-the-radar, especially after the team signed Lance Stephenson and Marvin Williams.

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.
