The AP reports: The Charlotte Bobcats came to terms late Thursday with free agent guard Ronald “Flip” Murray on a one-year, $1.99 million deal. Agent Mark Termini said Murray chose the Bobcats after also having discussions with the Cleveland Cavaliers. He averaged 12.2 points last season coming off the bench for the Atlanta Hawks, and gives coach Larry Brown more options in the backcourt.
awesome pickup by the 'Cats on this one, definitely gives us some much needed help in the back court.
Cool. All we need now is a backup PF.
Makes me wonder now what the big trade will be. We're obviously done with free agency and we don't have all the pieces we want. We're set a the guard positions but lacking good backup forwards. We're overloaded at center.

I commented on the original thread this broke in, but I'll say it again.
I am absolutely excited about this signing. Murray was exactly the type of player we needed. On top of that, I think he'll out-perform Henderson in camp and take the backup spot while Gerald gets some D-League time.
Oh cool, thanks. I remember him from Memphis... not much of him, I just remember him being there. I was watching more of CDR and Rose (I still wish we took CDR with our 38th pick or whatever it was )
