CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) – A person familiar with the situation says the Charlotte Hornets have agreed to a contract with free-agent power forward Tyler Hansbrough.
The person spoke to The Associated Press on Tuesday on condition of anonymity because the move hasn’t been announced.
Hansbrough, who played college basketball at North Carolina, is the sixth new player to join the Hornets this offseason.
The 6-foot-9, 250-pound Hansbrough is a six-year NBA veteran who spent the last two seasons with Toronto after four seasons with Indiana.
Hansbrough’s best season came in 2010-11 when he started a career-high 29 games and averaged 11 points and 5.2 rebounds. However, his playing time and production have steadily decreased since that season. He averaged just 3.6 points and 3.6 rebounds last year.
