Charlotte Bobcats President of Basketball Operations Rod Higgins announced today that the team has re-signed forward Josh McRoberts. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.
“Josh is a quality big man who can both score and distribute the ball, and he was integral in our improvement late last season,” Higgins said. “In addition to his play on the floor, he provided a strong presence and example for our younger players. We are happy to have him back on our team.”
