BERNIE BICKERSTAFF SAYS...

“Tamar Slay is an intriguing player because I think he can play multiple positions for us. Tamar has the ability to create his own shot and he also has the ability to create a shot for his team. He’s coming from a team that got to the NBA Finals when he was there.”

QUICK FACTS
Slay, signed as a free agent in July 2004, was limited by an ankle injury to eight games with the Bobcats but averaged career highs of 3.5 points and 1.8 rebounds. The 54th pick in the 2002 NBA Draft by New Jersey was part of Nets’ 2002-03 Eastern Conference champion team that went on to face eventual 2003 league champion San Antonio Spurs. The 6-8 forward left Marshall as the school’s all-time leader in three-pointers made with 251.
