Default Bobcats to Sign Reggie Williams

The Charlotte Bobcats are signing former Golden State Warrior Reggie Williams to address their 3-point shooting flaw.

Williams shot 40.5 percent from 3-point range in 104 games with the Warriors. Bobcats player-personnel chief Rod Higgins confirmed early Wednesday evening that he had an agreement in principle with Williams.

Coach Paul Silas has long been lobbying for a long-range shooter, after the Bobcats finished last season second-worst in the NBA in 3-point percentage.

Williams was originally a restricted free agent, but the Warriors rescinded his qualifying offer to sign Los Angeles Clippers forward DeAndre Jordan to an offer sheet. The Clippers matched that offer sheet.

Good signing imo.

I was hoping the Bulls would sign him. He's very versatile.

That's good.

Reportedly it's a 2 year 5 million dollar deal. I would have liked the Bobcats to tack one more year to that, but oh well.

I really, really, really hate to be the cynical asshole, but that 40% stat is very misleading.

That 40% comes from averaging only 1.3 made 3pt shots for every 3.2 attempts. Still, he averaged 10 ppg and that's at least solid. But I think he's been exalted a little too high to start off.

Oh come one Timmeh, you love being a cynical asshole.

How's this for depressing: Reggie's gonna have surgery for a meniscus tear and will be out 6-8 weeks.

The only free agent the cats could attract and he'll only be available for half the season, if that.

Wasn't aware of this until just now.

We'll see whether it is easier to lose 25 pounds for Diop or Williams to recover from a surgery.
