Default Bobcats send Ryan Hollins to D-League's Fort Worth Flyers

The Charlotte Bobcats have assigned center Ryan Hollins to their NBA Development League affiliate Fort Worth Flyers.

The 7-0, 230-pound center was drafted by Charlotte with the 50th overall selection in the second round of the 2006 NBA Draft and has not appeared in a regular season game with the Bobcats this season.

“Ryan is a terrific athlete who needs a chance to play and develop,” Bobcats General Manager and Head Coach Bernie Bickerstaff said. “Getting game experience is critical for Ryan and sending him to Fort Worth will provide him that opportunity.”

Hollins averaged 7.0 points, 4.8 rebounds and 0.88 blocks (ninth best in the Pac-10) in 21.5 minutes as a senior at UCLA. In four seasons with the Bruins, he averaged 5.7 points, 4.0 rebounds, 0.8 blocks and connected on .575 from the field and finished his collegiate career as the fourth all-time leading shot-blocker in school history with 101 blocks behind Jelani McCoy, Milwaukee Bucks center Dan Gadzuric and Charles O’Bannon.

Hollins will be coached in Fort Worth by former NBA All-Star Sidney Moncrief and joined on the court by Kevin Burleson, who spent the 2005-06 season with Charlotte before being waived prior to the start of the 2006-07 season.
