Bobbitt, the 6-4 guard from Cincinnati, was selected 8th in the 7th round of the NBA D-League Draft this season. While at Maine, Bobbit played in 30 games and averaged 12.2 ppg and shot 43% from 3-point range. Felix, a 6-6 forward from UNC –Wilmington, was selected 9th in the 6th round of the NBA D-League Draft this season and played in 30 games as well and averaged 9.2 ppg
In another move, the Armor also signed former Gonzaga University guard Dan Dickau from NBA D-League waivers and immediately traded him to the Ft. Wayne Mad Ants in return for guard Kyle McAlarney. The former Notre Dame star, McAlarney, stands at 6 feet and has played in 23 games for the Mad Ants this season. He has averaged 10.5 ppg and is currently ranked 6th in the league for 3 point field goal percentage, shooting 48% on the season.
To make room for McAlarney on the roster the Armor released guard Maurice Maxwell.
“As a team we needed to make changes to our roster” said Head Coach and Director of Basketball Operations Dee Brown, “We needed to change our focus for the second half of the season and continue to grow as a franchise and as a team. I expect an improved defensive approach and a stronger post presence on offense for the second half of the season from this team.”
