NEW YORK, Jan. 24, 2008 – The Charlotte Bobcats today assigned rookie forward Jermareo Davidson to their NBA Development League affiliate, the Sioux Falls Skyforce. Davidson is the 26th player and the 32nd assignment to the D-League from the NBA this season, and is the first assignment from the Bobcats to the Skyforce.

Originally selected in the second round of the 2007 NBA Draft (36th overall) by the Golden State Warriors, Davidson was acquired by the Bobcats in a draft night trade with the Warriors. A four-year starter at the University of Alabama, Davidson finished his collegiate career averaging 10.2 points, 7.3 rebounds and 1.8 blocks in 126 games. During his senior season, Davidson averaged 14.0 points, 8.2 rebounds, and 2.3 blocks in 30 games. Davidson was named to the All-Southeastern Conference Second Team in 2006-07 by the coaches and earned Honorable Mention All-SEC accolades by the Associated Press.

Davidson will join the Skyforce in Orem, Utah when Sioux Falls travels to face off against the Utah Flash on Friday, Jan. 25.
