Posted December 15, 2011 on AP on Fox
The Charlotte Bobcats have signed shooting guard Reggie Williams to a two-year contract, the team confirmed on Thursday. Williams, entering his third NBA season, is expected to join the Bobcats today for workouts. Williams had been a restricted free agent but the Golden State Warriors rescinded his rights in their efforts to sign a center. Bobcats coach Paul Silas said last week his team's biggest need was to find a shooting guard and Williams fills that role. He played in 80 games last season for the Warriors and averaged 9.2 points. As a rookie two years ago, he averaged 15.2 points and 4.2 rebounds in 24 games. Williams didn't garner much attention in college playing at Virginia Military, but has been a pleasant surprise.
