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Williams was originally a restricted free agent, but the Warriors rescinded his qualifying offer to sign Los Angeles Clippers forward DeAndre Jordan to an offer sheet.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