AP Source: McRobertsto stay with Bobcats
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Free agent forward Josh McRoberts has agreed to a two-year, $5.5 million deal to remain with the Charlotte Bobcats, said a person familiar with the situation.
The person spoke to The Associated Press Friday on condition of anonymity because the deal has not yet been made official. Free agent signings cannot be announced until July 10, according to NBA rules.
The person said the second year of the deal includes a player option.
Indiana native and former Pacer McRoberts outperformed expectations last season after being acquired from the Orlando Magic.
McRoberts wound up starting 19 games and averaged 9.3 points, 7.2 rebounds and 2.7 assists per game in 26 total contests for Charlotte. He also shot a career-best 50.5 percent from the field.
Every takes lead,Lefty misses cut
WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. (AP) — Matt Every shot an 8-under 62 on Friday for a one-stroke lead over five other players midway through the Greenbrier Classic.
Every needed just 26 putts during his best round of the year and is at 9 under for the tournament on the Old White TPC course
One stroke behind him at 8 under are Russell Henley (65), Bill Lunde (66), Daniel Summerhays (67), Steven Bowditch (67) and first-round co-leader Johnson Wagner (70).
Because 81 players made the cut Friday at 1 under, there will be a 54-hole cut to get to the top 70 scores, plus ties. Phil Mickelson is already assured of getting the weekend off. He shot 68 on Friday and finished at 2 over.
