Bobcats awarded center Haywood off waivers


Posted Jul 14 2012 9:09PM

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- The Charlotte Bobcats have been awarded center Brendan Haywood off waivers from Dallas.

Haywood, who grew up in Greensboro and played collegiately at North Carolina -- the same alma mater as owner Michael Jordan -- was cut loose by the Mavericks using the amnesty clause.

An 11-year NBA veteran, the 7-foot Haywood helps fills a void at center.

Haywood has played in 733 career games for the Wizards and Mavericks with 531 starts, averaging 7.2 points, 6.2 rebounds and 1.4 blocks in 23.7 minutes. His career field-goal percentage of .534 ranks seventh among active players and 28th in NBA history.

Haywood was a member of Dallas' 2011 NBA championship team, and has appeared in 53 career playoff games.

Charlotte announced the move on Saturday.
