Bobcats expected to sign former Bobcat D.J. White to 10-day contract

New, comments

One-time Charlotte Bobcat D.J. White is expected to return to Charlotte soon, as Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer reports that the team will sign White to a 10-day contract.

White, who played with the Bobcats from 2011 to 2012, is expected to offer the team more frontcourt support. Clifford wants to add a third center with the last remaining roster opening and though White is no center at 6-foot-9, he does have some bulk to defend the paint.

However, I don't recall his defense being particularly exceptional the last time we saw him in the greyish-blue and orange. Yet, he did have a fairly dependable jump shot. White's not particularly mobile but he brings a physical toughness on the other side of the floor.

Since his Bobcats stint, White played in China, most recently for the Sichuan Blue Whales. He had been signed to the Celtics but was waived by the Nets as part of the Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett trade.

In the 82 games White played for Charlotte over a season and a half, he averaged about 7.3 points and 3.8 rebounds per game. He was a fairly efficient scorer in small doses with a True Shooting percentage well over 50 percent but not a particularly effective rebounder or shot-blocker.
